Some fans protest National Anthem at UNC game
Some people sat during the anthem, following a movement started by NFL players

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WTVD) -- Some people at the Tar Heel football game Saturday joined in the recent wave of National Anthem protests by sitting while it was performed.

Several were seen in the crowd protesting before the game against James Madison University.

The movement has gained traction after San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand before NFL games.

Kaepernick says he'll continue to sit until there's real change when it comes to racial oppression in the United States.
