Coclin Karpernick honored by Amnesty InternationalAmnesty International on Saturday honored Colin Kaepernick with its ambassador of conscience award for 2018, lauding the NFL quarterback’s peaceful protests against racial inequality.

The former San Francisco 49ers star, who many observers claim to was blackballed by NFL team owners, was handed the award at a ceremony in Amsterdam by a onetime teammate, Eric Reid.

Kaepernick first knelt during the pre-game playing of the US national anthem when he was with the 49ers in 2016, to protest police brutality. Other players joined him, drawing the ire of Donald Trump, who called for team owners to fire such protesters.
