BOSTON (CBS) – San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is making headlines for refusing to stand during the national anthem. Kaepernick has stated that he feels racism and oppression are undermining what America is supposed to be all about, and that he will continue to sit during the anthem until he sees meaningful change. Some NFL players and coaches are criticizing the decision, upset that the QB is showing disrespect towards the flag and all those who have served to protect the United States. Do you think it is inappropriate for Kaepernick to sit during the national anthem as a form of protest? Or should he be allowed to express himself however he’d like?
