Tell Colin Kaepernick you support his brave stance for racial justice

It took a great deal of courage and integrity for Mr. Kaepernick to take this action. He should receive all the support we can give him. Maybe take half a minute to sign this petition (click the source link below) so that he and the whole world can see that he is not alone. Buy his jersey. Do what you can, and spread the word. – PC

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.”

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.
