San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's decision to protest the national anthem in the name of social justice — which sparked a movement that has spread across the NFL and other major sports — has drawn passionate reactions from fans and fellow players alike, and now a member of the highest court in the United States is weighing on on the debate. 

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States who assumed office in 1993, said in an interview with Katie Couric that she believes Kaepernick's actions are "dumb" and compared the protests to flag burning.
