Colin Kaepernick has been named GQ’s 2017 “Citizen of the Year.”
GQ referred to Kaepernick as “the man who became the movement.”
“But a simple act — kneeling during the national anthem — changed everything. It cost him his job. It also transformed Colin Kaepernick into a lightning rod and a powerful symbol of activism and resistance.
