Kaepernick takes a Knee with the Castlemont Knights Football Team In Oakland







Colin Kaepernick is reaching the youth across the nation with his silent protest during the National Anthem. High School athletes across the country are protesting the National Anthem by kneeling down on one knee. In the photo above, Colin Kaepernick is taking a knee while the Castlemont Knights lay on their backs, with their hands in the air.

The visual is reminiscent of 46-year-old Charles Kinsey, who was shot in North Miami over the summer while lying on the ground with his hands raised.

Kaepernick also spoke to Castlemont players before the game.

 "You are important. You make a difference. This matters. Everything you do matters," Kaepernick said. "Look out for one another, lift each other up. That's what this is all about. I had to come support y'all, because the same way y'all took a stand and stood with me, I had to come out here and stand with y'all. So I appreciate what y'all did. I love y'all. Y'all my brothers. I'm here with you."
