KC Chiefs Player Sits Out National Anthem in Season Opener

And it continues.

Who knows if we’ve heard the last from free agent Colin Kaepernick, but his anti-America legacy lives on in Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters, who sat during the national anthem in the first game of the regular season against the New England Patriots.

 

 

Before the game, Peters made another political statement via Twitter, posing with cleats that had the word “liberty” and “justice for all” printed on the bottoms.

 

 

Peters’ feet were already wet from protesting last season when he raised a clenched fist during the anthem in a game against the Chargers played on September 11. He seemed slightly apologetic at the time, saying, “I was just stating how I’m black, and I love being black. I’m supporting Colin in what he’s doing as far as raising awareness with the justice system, but I didn’t mean anything by it.”

It’s unclear if he "means anything" by stepping up his protest game this season.
