The college football national championship game is taking place in Atlanta tonight, earning a visit to the city from none other than Donald Trump. While many people don’t want Trump in their city or general vicinity, the NAACP in Atlanta is taking it a step further to let Trump and his supporters know that they aren’t messing around.

According to a report by the Associated Press, the NAACP is urging people to wear white and hold anti-Trump signs tonight. The white is meant to represent and mock the “snowflake” term, a label created by Trump supporters that have been placed on anyone who dares to go against the 45th.

Refuse Fascism ATL, another group against Trump, plans to “take a knee against Trump” outside CNN’s world headquarters before kickoff. The move is meant to showcase their solidarity with the NFL players who have knelt during the national anthem throughout the season as a sign of protest against social justice issues such as police brutality and racial injustice.

Last year, Trump was very vocal in his disdain for the rights of players to protest. He went as far as calling for the NFL to punish players that didn’t stand. Atlanta police say they worked with the Secret Service on preparations for months before the College Football Championship game between Alabama and Georgia, according to the AP.

We will see how this all plays out, but one thing is almost certain:  if protests against him are successful, we’ll hear about it on Twitter.

Any Atlanta readers down to protest?
