Queen B made a surprise appearance at the magazine's Sportsperson of the Year ceremony,
where she delivered a short speech celebrating Kaepernick, whose decision to take a knee during the National Anthem in protest of police brutality and systemic racism sparked similar actions throughout the sports world.

"Thank you, Colin Kaepernick, thank you for your selfless heart and your conviction, thank you for your personal sacrifice," Beyoncé said in a video shot from the audience. "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."

While he was still signed to the San Francisco 49ers,Colin Kaepernick first kneeled during the National anthem before a 2016 preseason game . "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color."


Colin Kaepernick continued to kneel throughout the season,garnering both support and vitriol as athletes in the NFL and other sports adopted similar protests.

Kaepernick promised that 'with or without the NFL's platform, I will continue to work for the people.' "I can only hope that I'm taking steps toward walking on the footsteps that [Ali] has left behind for the world to follow." #beyonce #kaepernick
