Salute to Kaepernick and Chappelle on receiving this amazing honor. Kaepernick has bounced back in a major way after being blackballed by the NFL for kneeling during the national anthem to protest racism and police bruality. He has since partnered with Nike for their 30th anniversary ‘Just Do It’ campaign which has earned millions. A commercial for this has also been aired on numerous networks that have aired NFL games.
