Last month, Roc Nation publicly spoke up for 11-year-old Jabari Talbot when cops arrested him after not standing up for the Pledge of Allegiance in school.
Jabari Talbot, an 11-year old student from Lakeland, Florida, was arrested in school after he exercised his right to not participate in the Pledge of Allegiance. We stand with Jabari and his mother to stop the over-policing and criminalization of Black students. #TeamRoc pic.twitter.com/38wdcLcxai

In mid-February, Tablot’s arrest sparked ample headlines.
An 11-year-old Polk County student refused to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance, and after explaining his reasons, he was kicked out of class and eventually arrested for being disruptive and disobeying commands to calm down and leave the classroom. He was also suspended for three days. (Bay News 9)
