The San Francisco 49ers Disrespected The Anthem, Kaepernick Is Certainly Proud

Colin Kaepernick started the anthem protests when he was a quarterback with the San Francisco 49ers. And now with him gone his teammates are continuing his tradition of disrespecting the national anthem and the flag.

On Sunday prior to the game with Arizona Cardinals nearly 30 payers knelt during the anthem and the others were standing behind them in solidarity.

The 49ers issued a statement with the reasons why the whole team protested, saying it was an act of unity.

For more than a year, members of our team have protested the oppression and social injustices still present in our society. While some may not have taken a knee or raised a fist, we have all shared the desire to influence positive change. Today, our team chose to publicly display our unity in a new way and, in turn, urge others do the same. Our demonstration is simply a representation of how we hope our country can also come together by putting differences aside and solving its problems.”

“Make no mistake, we love this great country and have tremendous respect for our military and veterans who have sacrificed so much for our right to express ourselves freely. We passionately want what is best for this country and all its citizens,” it continued.

When Kaepernick started the protests last season he said he didn’t want to “show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

    Should have come up with a different solution, we are not buying this one,social injustice has NOTHING to do with what you are doing,protesting on company time isn’t allowed at any business that I know of or you would be fired,why should you be any different

      I think you mean Obama. It was under Him that this crap started, and he berated the Police BEFORE he even Knew Details involving any Black/Police Crimes!
      Obama is the one that Divided this Country and that is Exactly what he Wanted to do..
      Pres Trump just spoke up for Many of us that are Tired of hearing and Seeing this Crap!!

      If you think people are Oppressed in America, then Leave and go to a Country where There is Real Oppression. Like Cuba!
      Get the hell out of America if you hate it so much!

    They should put their money where their mouth is. What are they doing to help? they are protesting but not doing anything. They should do what Gary Sinise has done for the Vets. Protesting and doing nothing to help shows their lack of caring.
