If police officers were supporting Colin Kaepernick's decision to sit during the national anthem, his latest choice for practice socks may have turned the tide.
Kaepernick's decision to sit during the national anthem was a direct reaction to what he called a "country that oppresses black people."
"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," he said. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."
According to CBS, Kaepernick has been wearing these socks since at least August 10.
Kaepernick will likely continue his protest of the national anthem Thursday night, when the San Diego Chargers honor military members.
