    In an effort to raise awareness for minority discrimination in the U.S., San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem during the 2016-2017 NFL season. "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 the NFL media.
