”I’m going to continue to stand with the people that are being oppressed,” Colin Kaepernick said Sunday at his locker according to Yahoo Sports. ”To me this is something that has to change. When there’s significant change and I feel like that flag represents what it’s supposed to represent, this country is representing people the way that it’s supposed to, I’ll stand.”

 

Athletes all around the United States continue to voice their opinion on having no more violence, particularity innocent people killed in the streets. Whether it’s long group sessions being televised on TV or figures like Carmelo and WNBA players talking about police brutality and violence, change needs to happen. And Kaepernick speaks out his mind on why he’ll continue to sit through anthem.

 

Now in the past few years, Kaepernick as a quarterback struggle making plays after Jim Harbaugh’s got fired. He was screwed, kicked around, and coached poorly by the San Francisco 49ers. But this stand he makes is his own personal decision, and doesn’t care about the public’s opinion.

 

”I agree with what he did, but not in the way he did it,” wideout Torrey Smith said according to Yahoo Sports. ”That’s not for me. He has that right. Soldiers have died for his right to do exactly what he did. … I know he’s taken a lot of heat for it. He understands that when you do something like that it does offend a lot of people.”

 

It’s true Kaepernick has the right to do what he wants, but be warned that others won’t like it. Giants wideout Victor Cruz and Bills coach Rex Ryan believe standing for the anthem shows respect. They believe in the country’s good deeds even if violence and police brutality continue to occur.

 

With the power of social media, athletes can do what they can as far as stating obvious problems in which the country needs to address. But at the end of the day, actions speak louder than words, and Kaepernick, did something that most popular figures wouldn’t do.
