Beyonce Presents Legacy Award to Colin Kaepernick, Thanks Him for His Sacrifice

Beyonce had the honor of presenting football player Colin Kaepernick with the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award at the Sports Illustrated’s 2017 Sportspersons of the Year Awards on Tuesday night (December 5) at the Barclays Center in New York City.

The 36-year-old entertainer was a surprise presenter at the event.

“Hi everyone! It feels so good to be here on such a special night of appreciation. Thank you, Colin Kaepernick,” Beyonce said. “Thank you for your selfless heart and your conviction. Thank you for your personal sacrifice.”

Colin took action with no fear of consequence or repercussion, only hope to change the world for the better; to change perception; to change the way we treat each other, especially people of color,” Bey added. “We’re still waiting for the world to catch up. It’s been said that racism is so American that when we protest racism, some assume we’re protesting America.”

“So, let’s be very clear. Colin has always been very respectful of the individuals who selfless serve and protect our country and our communities and our families. His message is solely focused on social injustice for historically disenfranchised people. Let’s not get that mistaken,” she concluded.

Colin made headlines last football season after he decided to kneel during the National Anthem to raise awareness for racial inequality in America. Despite being a star quarterback, he has not played this season.

The Muhammad Ali Legacy Award, previously presented to Magic Johnson, Jack Nicklaus, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Bill Russell, is presented to someone who “embodies the ideals of sportsmanship, leadership and philanthropy and has used sports as a platform for changing the world.”

    He’s so disgusting. The whole idea of him being labeled brave is revolting. I’m in the upside down world where people are going crazy.

  • cafeast

    These two repulse me like no other. Two race baiting racist pieces of shits who have everything they have b/c of white ppl. I love how that drag queen still bleaches her skin and wears blond wigs to whiten herself. btw, has she actually eaten the twins? She looks the size of a walrus.

  • persononhere

  • Gina

    For all the idiots wondering what he sacrificed; he sacrificed his career because ignorant people who didn’t understand him, blackballed him.

    it’s funny how uncomfortable a lot of you are over someone trying to get equal treatment to whites. are you that scared of white supremacy going away?

  • disqus_KwgiMZNJ54

    No one is hiring him. He lost his job and none of the other team owners are hiring him because of his protest.
