49ers Kaepernick Sits During National Anthem

In the third preseason game for the 49ers Colin Kaepernick moves on the sidelines overshadowed his play on the field. Kaepernick is fighting to get his starting job back from Blaine Gabbert. This was Kaepernicks first game of the preseason. During the National Anthem Kaepernick stayed sitting on the bench. Of course this caused a lot of controversy, and everyone was looking for why he would do this.”I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick  said. Kaepernick said that he will continue to sit during the National Anthem. You have to respect Kap’s willingness to use his platform to promote change. It may be in poor taste, but he said he wasn’t trying to offend anyone who was in the military. This probably won’t mean anything cause Kap is most likely gonna be released. He lost his job to Blaine Gabbert, and there is no coming back from that.

(P.S Who names their kid Blaine, or is it Blain? not a good name SMH)
