Tampa Bay Buccaneers team members stood for the singing of the national anthem before an NFL preseason football game on Aug. 20. That same evening in Santa Clara, Calif., San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” before a preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media. “There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
