Colin Kaepernick Awarded the WEBDuBois Medal at Harvard University - Sports Gossip
✊🏽

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback said he did not regret his decision to take a knee even though the anger that surrounded him doing so might have cost him his place in the NFL.

“Because if we don’t, we become complicit in the problem. It is our duty to fight for them, and we are going to continue to fight for them.”

Kaepernick was one of the eight recipients of the W.E.B. Du Bois Medal from Harvard for his work in social justice. The university described the medal as “Harvard’s highest honor in the field of African and African-American studies.”

This is pretty cool but I'm ready for Colin to be rewarded a job in the NFL. There are so many below average QB's out there, I'm sure he would do no worse than them.
