Beyoncé surprises Colin Kaepernick with Sports Illustrated's Muhammad Ali Legacy Award


Colin Kaepernick received Sports Illustrated's Muhammad Ali Legacy Award from Beyonce on Tuesday night and vowed to continue his protest movement, "with or without the NFL's platform". 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. "With or without the NFL's platform, I will continue to work for the people because my platform is the people".

The Formation singer was brought out as a surprise presenter by Daily Show host and comedian Trevor Noah.

United Kingdom made no estimate of Brexit's economic impact
Wera Hobhouse, a Lib Dem member of the committee, said it was "unbelievable" that the assessments did not exist. As recently as October, Mr Davis told MPs that sectoral reports existed in "excruciating detail".

At first, the NFL's televised games and locker room media scrums gave Colin Kaepernick an audience for his protests against police brutality and racial injustice.

The award is given to an athlete who uses their fame and platform to promote change, which quarterback Kaepernick did when he knelt during the US national anthem at various football games to draw attention to racial discrimination and acts of police brutality. It's been said that racism is so American, that when we protest racism, some assume we are protesting America.

Profumo affair's Christine Keeler has passed away aged 75
Mr Profumo was eventually forced to admit he had lied to the Commons in March 1963 when he denied any impropriety with Ms Keeler. Eventually, after more newspaper stories emerged, he admitted lying to the house, and resigned from the cabinet and the Commons.

Many have criticized Kaepernick and others for their actions during the anthem, seeing it as a sign of disrespect toward members of the military and the larger American community. One of those critics has been the President of the United States. "He's fired!" NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell called Trump's comments "divisive", although Goodell has also said since that players should stand for the anthem.

Despite throwing for 16 touchdowns and four interceptions in 2016, and despite a stated desire to play, Kaepernick remains a free agent.
