Baltimore Councilman Brandon Scott Wears Kaepernick Jersey to Baltimore City Council Meeting

While most of his colleagues wore suits and ties during Monday night’s City Council meeting, Councilman Brandon Scott opted for a Colin Kaepernick jersey – the San Francisco quarterback who has sparked a national debate by choosing to sit down during the national anthem.

“It’s a show of a solidarity of support for not just Mr. Kaepernick but for all the young people across the country who have decided to take a stand to get the conversation going,” Scott said. “This is about the issues. This is about making our country what we all want it to be.”
