Beyonce and her dancers raise the Black Power fist at Super Bowl 50.
Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime performance was a cop-hating political statement is support of the Black Panthers – a Marxist group whose leader Huey Newton was was arrested for shooting Police Officer John Frey.
Beyonce’s performance included only black dancers – who gave the Black Panther salute to the international audience.

Celebrities love to trash police officers these days because it will get you a great little editorial write-up in the New York Times. So when Beyonce sang her anti-police song at the Super Bowl, it made it all the more ironic that this happened just before the show.
Gotta love it! Rich Hollywood celebrities complaining about “the system” and then directly benefiting from it.
