Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick received an award named for Muhammad Ali on Tuesday night, presented by a fellow cultural icon.

Lahren repeatedly slammed Kaepernick as "disrespectful" when the former San Francisco 49ers chose to take a knee during the national anthem before games to protest police brutality. He has spent the rest of the year focusing on social justice issues.

"With or without the NFL's platform, I will continue to work for the people, because my platform is the people", he said during his acceptance speech Tuesday night. "And if it was not for the support from the people, I would not be on this stage today". Colin took action with no fear of consequences or repercussions, only hope to change the world for the better'.

Bradford ended with, "And, uh, yeah, I'm pretty much without any further comment that would be constructive at this time". A befuddled Bradford chuckled as he said: "We are officially off the rails". " Then beg, don't touch ", Metcalfe said.

Last year's Ali Award victor, basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, called Kaepernick a "worthy recipient" during a video tribute. "It's been said that racism is so American that when we protest racism, some assume we're protesting America".

"I say this as a person who receives credit for using my platform to protest systemic oppression, racialized injustice and the dire consequences of anti-blackness in America", he said after receiving the award by Beyoncé at SI's Sportsperson of the Year event at Barclays Center.

"The footprints he [Ali] leaves are large", Kaepernick said.

Beyoncé also addressed the misguided criticism, exacerbated by President Donald Trump, that sports players kneeling during the national anthem was a sign of disrespect to the American flag and the military.

As on-field protests intensified in the early fall, Trump told a rally in Alabama on September 23 that National Football League team owners should react to kneeling players by saying, "Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he's fired. I can only hope that I'm taking steps toward walking in the footsteps that he has left behind for the world to follow".
