In a fascinating scene in the 49ers’ locker room Sunday afternoon, a prominent NFL quarterback spoke with reporters for 18 minutes and discussed gun violence instead of game plans, racism instead of reading a defense.
Two days after he sparked a national conversation by declining to stand for the national anthem before a preseason game, Colin Kaepernick explained his controversial stand.
Kaepernick has declined to stand during the national anthem during each of the 49ers’ preseason games, and he said he will continue to do so.
Kaepernick has said he doesn’t want “show pride” in a country that oppresses “people of color,” citing a spate of shootings of black people by white police officers.
When there’s 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, I’ll stand.
On Saturday, the day after his decision created national headlines, no NFL player sat during the national anthem during six preseason games.
Before he met with reporters, Kaepernick was among the players who spoke Sunday morning during a team meeting that addressed the firestorm his decision had created and the potential locker-room fallout.
Wide receiver Torrey Smith echoed many of his teammates when he said he doesn’t necessarily agree with the way in which Kaepernick is bringing attention to issues such as racial inequality.
“Oftentimes people want athletes to take a stand,” Smith said.
 after Kap stated his case today and seeing where he’s coming from, I do stand with Kap when he says enough is enough against crime, violence, discrimination and racism.
Kaepernick’s gesture, of course, is symbolic, but he said he has plans in the works to become involved in activist causes.
“I do think that the talk has been more about me, more about I know a lot of people’s initial reactions thought it was bashing the military, which it wasn’t,” Kaepernick said.

Crabtree says practice paying off for Raiders’ passing game Practice makes perfect, and so does the preseason, Michael Crabtree hopes. The Raiders’ receiver beat Tennessee Titans cornerback Antwon Blake by a step, maybe a step and a half, and Derek Carr dropped the ball in for a 41-yard completion in the first quarter Saturday night.
The Buffalo Bills coach believes standing for the national anthem is a way for NFL players and coaches to show respect and give thanks to members of the armed forces, suggesting that he disagrees with 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision to sit during the anthem.
“You’ve got to look at the gifts that we have; the opportunity that we have to play a great game is through the men and women that serve our country,” Ryan said Sunday.
 I think that’s an opportunity right there just to show respect.
The New York Giants wide receiver’s take: Colin is his own man, he decided to sit down and that is his prerogative, but on a personal standpoint, I think you have to stand up there with your team and understand and it’s this game and what’s going on around this country is bigger than just you.
 all the hard work by everybody, hundreds of people at our race shop, people who have got me through to the Cup Series, it was all paying off.
