Speaking on Colin, Bey said:

It feels so good to be here on such a special night of appreciation. Thank you Colin Kaepernick. Thank you for your selfless heart and your conviction. Thank you for your personal sacrifice, Colin took action with no fear of consequence or repercussion, only hope to change the world for the better.

To change perception, to change the way we treat each other, especially people of color. We’re still waiting for the world to catch up…His message is solely focused on social injustice for historically disenfranchised people. Let’s not get that mistaken.
