It's very seldom you see a young man in the prime of his professional sports career sacrifice all for the greater good. Colin Kaepernick is one of these unique individuals. By taking a knee during the National Anthem before football games, he has stood up for those afflicted by police brutality and racial inequality. Taking this stand has cost him his lucrative career as a NFL quarterback and being characterized as unpatriotic. It is truly patriotic to stand up for the rights that are guaranteed to us ALL in the U.S. Constitution. He is following in the steps of greatness trail-blazed by the likes of Jackie Robinson and Muhammad Ali. He is truly deserving of the Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali Legacy Award.
