Colin Kaepernick is getting an award that will make you sick
Nike’s new Colin Kaepernick ad campaign claimed he was “sacrificing everything.”
But the former NFL quarterback’s stardom has only risen among Leftists since his national anthem protest.
And now he’s getting an award that will make you sick.
Harvard University is set to honor Colin Kaepernick with the W. E. B. Du Bois Medal.
Harvard University is planning to honor the former NFL quarterback turned anthem-kneeling activist Colin Kaepernick with a medal next month.
The university plans to honor Kaepernick and seven others with the W. E. B. Du Bois Medal, which the university considers its “highest honor in the field of African and African American studies,” in a ceremony on October 11, WBZ reported Thursday.
“The medal honors those who have made significant contributions to African and African American history and culture, and more broadly, individuals who advocate for intercultural understanding and human rights in an increasingly global and interconnected world,” the university said in a statement.
Past recipients included Muhammad Ali and Maya Angelou.
Before he began his national anthem protests, Kaepernick was benched for journeyman quarterback Blaine Gabbart.
His early success was little more than a flash in the pan.
But leftists put him on a pedestal because of his anti-American and pro-Black Lives Matter political views.
Besides his massive contract with Nike, Kaepernick remains out of a job.
But his attorney gave an interview saying the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots may be interested in signing him.
