The American pop star Beyoncé’s performance at the Super Bowl – the biggest sports event in the U.S. – has sparked an uproar for what critics say are its pro-black and anti-police messages.

Beyoncé’s performance included Black Pride symbols and references to the Black Panther Party. Black rights activists applauded the singer for taking a stand on the race debate, while opponents criticized her decision to use a sports event as a platform for political statements.

Opponents of Beyoncé’s performance staged a protest in New York attracting media from the around the world including CNN and The Guardian, but as Christine Brink reports the rally didn’t go as planned.
