GOPUSA – Kapernick kneels for anthem; wears socks depicting cops as pigs during practice

KaepernickSAN DIEGO (AP) — Colin Kaepernick began the game by taking a knee during the national anthem. The veteran quarterback ended it with reason to hope he’ll have more games with the San Francisco 49ers.

Kaepernick passed for 103 yards after kneeling in protest alongside teammate Eric Reid during the national anthem in the Niners’ 31-21 preseason victory over the San Diego Chargers on Thursday night.

Kaepernick and Reid, a starting safety who wasn’t playing, declined to stand for the anthem before a preseason game dedicated to military appreciation by the Chargers. Kaepernick has decided not to stand this season to draw attention to American racial injustice, minority oppression and a litany of additional concerns ranging from police brutality to military veterans’ rights.
