Beyonce in a very tight mini dress presented Colin Kaepernick with the prestigious Muhammad Ali Legacy Award at the Sports Illustrated 2017 Sportspersons of the Year Awards.

The artist and activist honoured the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback with the award for using his platform to protest against police brutality and racial injustice, including the powerful, symbolic moment where he sparked the 'take a knee' movement by kneeling during the USA national anthem before games. "So let's be very clear", she said.

Beyonce thanked Kaepernick for his "personal sacrifice", and 2016 Ali Award victor Kareem Abdul-Jabbar called Kaepernick a "worthy recipient" during a video tribute. "I am so proud and humbled to present to Muhammad Ali legacy award to Colin Kaepernick", Bey said after thanking the former 49ers QB for his personal sacrifice. "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color", Kaepernick told NFL Media in August 2016. To change perception, to change the way we treat each other.

Outdoor retailer REI also criticized Trump but in less harsh language. "We will be suing to defend Bears Ears shortly". He says the administration is working with Nevada's governor and congressional delegation to find a solution.

J.J. Watt and Jose Altuve were also honored at the event as joint recipients of Sports Illustrated's Sportsperson of the Year award for their efforts on the field and in aiding Houston's recovery from Hurricane Harvey. During a video tribute, Abdul-Jabbar noted how Kaepernick "fully embraced the risk to his career in order to remind Americans of the systemic racism that was denying African-Americans their opportunities to equal education, jobs, health and even their lives". "And if it was not for the support from the people, I would not be on this stage today".

The quarterback parted ways with the San Francisco 49ers this year, and was not signed to another team. Everybody knew the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback would get that valuable award, which is given to an athlete who uses their platform to promote change, for all of Colin's activism within the National Football League world to demand racial equality and more social justice in America.

Kaepernick skipped the red carpet prior to the show and was not available for questions.
