Colin Kaepernick named GQ's 2017 Citizen of the Year

Colin Kaepernick, the former NFL quarterback who started the protest movement during the national anthem, has been named GQ's 2017 Citizen of the Year, the magazine announced Monday morning (Nov. 13).



"He's been vilified by millions and locked out of the NFL -- all because he took a knee to protest police brutality," the magazine's cover story reads. "But Colin Kaepernick's determined stand puts him in rare company in sports history: Muhammad Ali, Jackie Robinson -- athletes who risked everything to make a difference."

Yes, because nothing says 'citizen of the year' like opting out of your contract and being unemployed. 2016 at least would have made more sense.
