Colin Kaepernick further explained his boycotting of the national anthem today.

The San Francisco 49ers' quarterback sat while the Star Spangled Banner played at his preseason game on Saturday. He later said it was to protest America's oppression of black people. The NFL issued a statement, saying they encourage but do not require their players to stand for the anthem.

Cam Inman posted five videos from Kaepernick's interview with the media today, in which he solidifies his stance.

Here they are.
