Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick made headlines last August when he refused to stand for the national anthem during a preseason game. His gesture, he later explained, was an act of protest against police violence and the oppression of people of color. A year later, preseason games have begun, and Kaepernick is out of work. NFL officials say he's unsigned because he's not good enough or wants too much money. But supporters within and outside of the sports world say that Kaepernick would have a job but for his acts of protest. We'll discuss why the NFL has sidelined Kaepernick and the role of protest in sport.
