After kneeling amid the playing of the national song of praise all through the 2016 season, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will allegedly continue remaining in 2017.
According by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, sources said Kaepernick will remain to abstain from taking away from advance he accepts has been made and the mindfulness conveyed to the issue of social inequality.
Kaepernick’s dissent started amid the 2016 preseason, and he disclosed his choice to NFL.com’s Steve Wyche: “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
At the point when gotten some information about when he would come back to remaining amid the song of praise, Kaepernick showed in September that he would do as such even with positive change, per Martin Rogers of USA Today: “I don’t want to kneel forever. I want these things to change. I do know it will be a process, and it is not something that will change overnight. But I think there are some major changes that we can make that are very reasonable.”
