The Revolution Club, Bay Area, at the 49ers Game: Intervening In a Polarized Crowd

September 19, 2016 | Revolution Newspaper |


The Revolution Club out in front of the 49ers opening game at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara. Hundreds of copies of the Top 10 Reasons to Sit Down for the Nasty-ful Anthem and the Message from the Central Committee of the RCP got out to the crowd. The response was extremely polarized. Some (including many hardcore 49ers fans, especially white people) cursed and threatened Kaepernick and us, one guy tried to grab the flag out from under us. Some (including several military vets) told us they were ok with what Kap did, but why did we have to sit on the flag? Many people told us that they too were sick of these cops getting away with murder and that they were fully in support of Kap, with some proudly wearing their #7 Kaepernick jersey and telling us they were also gonna sit or kneel during the anthem.
