R&B legend Erykah Badu hosted the 2018 Soul Train Awards last night and served as one hell of a host. Prior to kicking things off, she addressed social injustices in America and paid homage to Colin Kaepernick by taking a knee.
“I know I usually do a big elaborate musical number, but right here I feel I need to do this.”
Badu applauded Kaepernick for willing to let his NFL career go along with his dreams in order to fight for racial equality.
“This is for Kap. Kap, we appreciate you, for giving your life, giving up your dream, because you believe in us,” said Badu.
