Report: Colin Kaepernick Will Stand For The National Anthem Next Season
Last season, San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick made waves when cameras caught him sitting and then kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem, and it drove the masses crazy.
He was the center of a national debate as he continued to do it in protest of social inequality in the United States. All that will change come next season, however, as he has decided he will stand when the National Anthem is played.
“Quarterback Colin Kaepernick will stand during the national anthem next season, sources told ESPN on Thursday.
Kaepernick no longer wants his method of protest to detract from the positive change that he believes has been created, sources told ESPN. He also believes the amount of national discussion on social inequality — as well as support from other athletes nationwide, including NFL and NBA players — affirmed the message he was trying to deliver.”
In addition to kneeling, he also donated thousands of dollars to various organizations throughout the United States as he promised during the season
