Colin Kaepernick's Sparks More Controversy with Practice Socks

(CBS SPORTS) Colin Kaepernick is sparking more outrage with practice socks. 

During an interview on Sunday, Kaepernick said that police brutality against minorities has to stop if he's ever going to stand for the national anthem again.

"People of color have been targeted by police," Kaepernick said. "So that's a large part of it and they're government officials. They are put in place by the government. So that's something that this country has to change. There's things we can do to hold them more accountable. Make those standards higher. You have people that practice law and are lawyers and go to school for eight years, but you can become a cop in six months and don't have to have the same amount of training as a cosmetologist."

After Kaepernick's interview, the San Francisco Police Officers Association sent out a letter blasting his comments.

Kaepernick has been wearing socks that show a pig in a cop's hat.
