Rocker John Mellencamp featured a “take a knee” segment at a concert earlier this week at New York City’s Beacon Theater.
The “Jack and Diane” singer took a knee as he was wrapping up the song “Easy Target.”
Lyrics for the song include the words, “Well, let the poor be damned, and the easy targets, too. All are created equal, equally beneath me and you.”

Mellencamp, 67, is in the midst of a national tour.
He’ll soon be visiting cities like Nashville, Tennessee, and Louisville, Kentucky.
The rocker has shown support for taking a knee in protest in the past. During an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” last year, he took a knee.
The Indiana-born musician later said the act was not planned.
“I’ve never planned anything in my life,” he told Billboard about taking a knee on the show.
“Taking a knee felt like nothing. At the time, it felt like part of the performance. After the fact, I hope it made some kind of difference.”
