Wochit News - Fans Chant USA As Colin Kaepernick Kneels For National Anthem - San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick knelt for the national anthem Sunday in his continuing protest against racial oppression and police brutality amid loud chants of “USA! USA! USA!” The game against the Buffalo Bills marked Kaepernick's first start of the season after Blaine Gabbert was benched. Outside the stadium, vendors sold shirts with Kaepernick's image in the sites of a rifle scope, and fans tackled a dummy dressed up like the quarterback.
