Kaepernick wins Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali Legacy Award

The Formation singer was brought out as a surprise presenter by Daily Show host and comedian Trevor Noah. Colin took action with no fear of consequences or repercussions, only hope to change the world for the better'. Kaepernick refused to stand during the "Star-Spangled Banner" as a way to protest the unequal treatment of black Americans and other people of color in the United States, especially in regards to police brutality.

Kaepernick made a rare a public appearance Tuesday night when he was awarded Sports Illustrated's Muhammad Ali Legacy Award in recognition of what he's done for various charities and communities around the country for the past 16 months.

"Colin took action with no fear of outcome or repercussion, only hope to change the world for the better", Beyonce said on Tuesday night in quotes reported by ESPN.

President Donald Trump is a vocal critic of the protests.
