Colin Kaepernick’s goal in refusing to stand during the National Anthem for the time being was roughly intended to bring light to a situation in this country that he feels is astray, and to hopefully influence others at the same time. It seems as he’s done just that.

Not only did a teammate and fellow NFLer on the rival Seattle Seahawks decide to sit during their final preseason games, but six 5th graders followed in the QBs footsteps.


A public school teacher tweeted that six 5th graders took a knee during their morning recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.
