Watch: 49ers Fans Support Colin Kaepernick's Fight for Social Justice and Chant His Name

An overwhelming display of love to put the backup QB in the game.

Published October 7th

Colin Kaepernick's national anthem protest as a stand against racism and police brutality has been met with both support and backlash for over a month now.

But when it comes to San Francisco 49ers fans, they're behind their backup quarterback's stance 100 percent.

The 49ers' faithful showed Kaepernick just that during the team's home game against the Arizona Cardinals at Levi's Stadium on Thursday Night Football by chanting, "We want Kaep!"

Watch this outpouring of love for Kaepernick.

It's safe to say that 49ers fans respect Kaepernick's continued fight for social justice, as he once again knelt during the national anthem before the game yesterday.

It's dope that Niners fans not only support his stance, but want to see him out on the field playing.

We'd call that a touchdown!
