No NFL team will hire Colin Kaepernick. That still pisses me off. Fortunately, people are giving Kaepernick recognitions and awards all over the place. He was one of the runners-up for Time Magazine’s Person of the Year. He was one of GQ’s Men of the Year. The ACLU gave him an award for Courageous Advocate. And last night, Kaepernick took home the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award at the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year Awards. What made it next-level was the fact that Beyonce made a surprise appearance at the SI Awards just to present Kaepernick with the award. Beyonce said:
“It feels so good to be here on such a special night of appreciation. Thank you, Colin Kaepernick. 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 treated each other, especially people of color. We are 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 are protesting America. So, let’s be very clear: Colin has always been very respectful of the individuals who selflessly 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.”

Hey, remember when Bey released “Formation” and all of the white conservatives were literally pulling out their hair and screaming about how BEYONCE IS A BLACK PANTHER and BEYONCE IS DANGEROUS? That was after she killed it at the Super Bowl in what was just a GUEST appearance during the Half-Time show. My point? The NFL has problems, but Black Panthers aren’t it.
As for Kaepernick, he told the audience that “With or without the NFL’s platform, I will continue to work for the people.” He spoke about the legacy of Ali, saying: “The footprints he leaves are large and his life is and has been a multi-textured tapestry that is rich in love, wisdom, life lessons, and human kindness. I can only hope that I’m taking steps toward walking on the footsteps that he has left behind for the world to follow.”
