49ers' Colin Kaepernick: 'I'll continue to sit' for national anthem @Kaepernick7

  • I’m going to continue to stand with the people that are being oppressed,” said 49ers’ Qb Colin Kaepernick.
  • Kaepernick told NFL Network on Friday night that he chose not to stand because: “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.

  • Two days after sparking a national conversation in the wake of his decision to sit during the pre-game performance of the national anthem Friday night, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick isn’t changing his tune, according to a report in USA Today.
