Women's March organizer Linda Sarsour envisioned a future in which Colin Kaepernick is held up as a American Civil Rights hero in GQ's latest on the former football player.
GQ named Kaepernick its "Citizen of the Year" and did an article relying on other activists' testimonies about the football player. Sarsour, one of the activists interviewed, declared she could see a future where Kaepernick is remembered for his progress in civil rights.
"I always tell Colin: 'You are an American hero. You may not feel like a hero right now, but one day, people will realize the sacrifices that you made for so many others.' There might even be a day when we'll be walking down Colin Kaepernick Boulevard and people will remember what Colin Kaepernick did, just like we remember Muhammad Ali. And I truly believe that in my heart," Sarsour wrote about the former San Francisco 49ers' quarterback.
