San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick says he's not backing down. On Monday night, for a second straight game, Kaepernick took a knee during the National Anthem. He says it's his way of protesting the shootings of unarmed black people by white police officers. (SOUNDBITE) (English) SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS BACKUP QUARTERBACK COLIN KAEPERNICK SAYING: "As I've talked to people and as I have been in the community, I've seen those things, I've heard those things and now ok how do I best maximize my platform and my resources to help these people." The protest has angered some fans, who see it as disrespectful to the U.S. flag, the military and the nation. But he's also found allies. Other NFL players have joined the protest, taking a knee or raising a fist during the anthem. It's an emotive issue, and fans are divided. (SOUNDBITE) (English) DARYL GRAVES, SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS FAN SAYING: "The dialogue is happening so I love the fact that he's accomplished what he set out to accomplish." (SOUNDBITE) (English) ANDREW RAMMER SAN FRANCISCO FAN SAYING: "It's an excuse to make media attention, that's all it is, it's all attention." (SOUNDBITE) (English) ANTON HONIKMAN SAN FRANCISCO FAN SAYING: "I think he has every right to use his profile to protest a true problem in this country that needs to be addressed." And that, says Kaepernick, is the point... to address the issue before the final down.
