San Fransisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is under fire from a Gold Star mother and many Americans after he refused to stand for the national anthem during a preseason football game last week.

The God Star mother’s comments were first shared by CNN’s Jake Tapper.

Kaepernick said he refused to “show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” He argued doing so would be “selfish” because “there are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

He told reporters he will continue to sit during the “Star-Spangled Banner” until he sees “significant change and I feel like that flag represents what it’s supposed to represent, this country is representing people the way that it’s supposed to.”
