Last night, Beyoncé surprised when everyone when she walked on stage to present Collin Kaepernick with the Sports Illustrated’s Muhammad Ali Legacy Award.“Thank you, Colin Kaepernick, thank you for your selfless heart and your conviction, thank you for your personal sacrifice,” Beyoncé said. “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. We’re still waiting for the world to catch up.”

“With or without the NFL’s platform, I will continue to work for the people because my platform is the people,” Kaepernick said after accepting the award.
