The San Francisco 49ers quarterback continues to disrespect America. Tonight, Colin Kaepernick refused to stand up for the National Anthem yet again.
Prior to the 49ers playing the San Diego Chargers, Kaepernick knelt down beside the bench as The Star Spangled Banner was performed.
The Black Lives Matter advocate first made headlines last week when he remained seated during the National Anthem before playing the Green Pay Packers. He said it is his way of protesting racial injustices in the United States.
Earlier today we reported that Kaepernick is now sporting socks that can be considered anti-police. See photo.

The crowd booed the 28-year-old as he stepped out on to the field at Qualcomm Stadium on Thursday night ahead of ceremonies to honor America’s armed forces.
Kaepernick’s teammate, safety Eric Reid, also sat down during the anthem. The pair then hugged on the sidelines.
In another pre-season game, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane joined the protest ahead of their game with the Oakland Raiders. He was seen sitting on the bench while his teammates and opponents were on the field singing.
