Last Thursday San Fransisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick remained seated during the National Anthem setting off a firestorm of backlash.
Colin explains his stance and rapper T.I. offers his support...
In a press conference following Sunday's game Colin explains,
"It's to bring awareness and make people realize what is really going on in this country. There are a lot of things that are going on that is unjust, people aren't being held accountable for and that's something that needs to change."
"This country stands for freedom, liberty, justice for all — and it's not happening for all right now."
"I'll continue to sit, I'm going to continue to stand with the people that are being oppressed. To me this is something that has to change and when there's significant change and I feel like that flag represents what its supposed to represent and this country is representing people the way its supposed to, I'll stand."
"There are people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable. Cops are getting paid leave for killing people."
