Colin Kaepernick is no longer standing alone. Well in this case, kneeling. The 49ers quarterback has been getting a lot of attention the last few weeks in regards to his choice to take a knee during the national anthem, as a way to stand up for the African-American community during these trying times of police brutality.
As football season kicked off this weekend, the list continues to grow as other players join in on the movement in support of Kaepernick.
Some players in the league have decided to raise their fists during the anthem as a salute to black power.
