NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, has been struggling to find a new team since opting out of his contract last season. It all started when Kaepernick took to his knees during the national anthem, instead of standing during each game. Kaepernick staged a one-man protest last season by kneeling for African-Americans instead of standing for the national anthem before each week’s game.
But critics have said his refusal to stand for the “Star-Spangled Banner” has been disrespectful to this country and its service men. Therefore, the NAACP, The NYPD, The National Action Network and Kaepernick supporters across the board are calling for a boycott of the NFL games until Kaepernick gets an equal opportunity at making a roster for the upcoming season.
Looks like other players are joining in on the protest.
