Beyonce Presents Colin Kaepernick with SI's Muhammad Ali Legacy Award

Beyonce was brought out as a surprise presenter for the Sports Illustrated Sports Person of the Year Awards to honor, former 49er QB, Colin Kaepernick with the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award.

Upon accepting the award  Kaepernick  promised that "with or without the NFL's platform, I will continue to work for the people." 
Queen Bey also thanked  Kaepernick for his "personal sacrifice," and  in a video tribute the 2016 Ali Award winner Kareem Abdul-Jabbar called Kaepernick a "worthy recipient".
Kaepernick has made headlines since he began kneeling during the national anthem last season to protest racial inequality and police brutality. The demonstration sparked a wave of protests by NFL players during the anthem that repeatedly have been denounced by President Donald Trump. Kaepernick left 49ers in March and has raised questions and rallies among his supporters because he hasn't been signed to a team since.
