49er’s quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, has chosen to express his opinion of the country’s treatment of minorities by refusing to stand for the National Anthem before games.

His controversial “stand” has caused ripples of discontent throughout the sports nation and beyond.  Since his initial protest, he has conceded to kneel during the patriotic song rather than sit, stating that he’s not against the country, but wants to raise awareness of his perceived mistreatment of minorities within the country.

Kaepernick has garnered some support from other members of the football nation, celebrities, and even, to some extent, the President of the United States who felt that it was a call for attention to an important issue.

Time will tell whether or not this action helps his cause, becomes a detriment to his mission, or even affects his career.
