Tell Colin Kaepernick you support his brave stance for racial justice

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick did not stand for a playing of the national anthem. He explained: "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way."

Jon Schwarz, The Intercept: Colin Kaepernick Is Righter Than You Know: The National Anthem Is a Celebration of Slavery

As a result, Kaepernick has received an avalanche of criticism and racist abuse.

To express your support for this brave athlete, please add your name to this short statement which is backed by RootsAction and Color Of Change:

Colin Kaepernick: We support your right to protest in support of racial justice. Thank you.
