Colin Kaepernick took a knee to protest police brutality and racial injustice. Now, even TV stars like Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny aka Mulder and Scully of The X-Files are taking a knee.

The actress posted the pic below of herself and her co-star bending the knee with the hashtags #TakeAKnee and #TheXFiles, which is getting another season.

But is it sincere? We’d hate to see this become a trend that whitewashes what Kaepernick has risked his career for—the fair treatment of Black people by the powers that be.

We’ll give Mulder and Scully the benefit of a doubt, for now. Either way, we’re here for anyone who makes it clear how off his rocker Donald Trump was for coming for NFL protesters.
