NFL player Colin Kaepernick snubs national anthem again

American football player Colin Kaepernick has again refused to stand for the national anthem as he continues his protest against the plight of black people in the US.

A week after staying seated during The Star-Spangled Banner, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback kneeled during the anthem before a match on Thursday.

Team-mate Eric Reid also protested, but they were booed by some in the crowd.

Kaepernick was joined by a former soldier who he met before the game.

Nate Boyer, a former staff sergeant with the US Army Special Forces, or the Green Berets, wrote an open letter to the quarterback last week.
