49ers cheerleader kneels during national anthem

Bay Area

Before the game, a Niners cheerleader kneeled during the national anthem. 

This is the first known protest by a NFL cheerleader. 

Many players throughout the league joined Kaepernick in his protests. 

He first took a knee in 2016 to highlight racial inequality and police brutality in America. 

The former 49er is still looking for a job in the NFL.
