49ers QB Colin Kaepernick spoke to reporters for nearly 20 minutes today about his decision to sit during the national anthem. During the discussion, Kaepernick touched on times he and friends have been harassed by police, his explanation for how the decision to do this evolved, the presidential election, why he did it alone and whether he fears for his safety on the road. "People don't realize what's really going on in this country," Kaepernick said. "There are a lot things that are going on that are unjust. People aren't being held accountable for. And that's something that needs to change. That's something that this country stands for freedom, liberty and justice for all. And it's not happening for all right now."
