Beyonce made a surprise appearance to present Colin Kaepernick with Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali Legacy Award on Tuesday night and addressed his critics that somehow STILL don't get why he took a knee.
"It’s been said that racism is so American that when we protest racism we’re protesting America. Colin has always been very respectful of the individuals who selflessly serve and protect our country and our communities and our families," Beyonce said at the Barclays Center.
"His message is solely focused on social injustice for historically disenfranchised people. Let’s not get that mistaken.”
Beyonce also thanked Kaepernick for his "selfless heart" and "conviction", and sacrificing his own livelihood to make the world a better place for everyone. This is something Ali fought for throughout his life.
