Colin Kaepernick has put it all on the line, fighting against oppression against people of color. And for that Colin won the Courageous Advocate award at the ACLU of SoCal’s Bill of Rights Dinner according to TMZ.
What Colin has done is eye-opening, he stood for something when no one else would. Colin didn’t have to make a silent statement, but he did and it cost him. His message is far more important than any football game.
“We must confront systemic oppression as a doctor would a disease. You identify it, you call it out, you treat it, and you defeat it.”
“We all have an obligation no matter the risk, and regardless of reward, to stand up for our fellow men and women who are being oppressed with the understanding that human rights cannot be compromised.”
Regardless if he plays another down or not, Colin stood for what’s right, flip the page for the video of him winning the award and to hear his speech.
