Should Colin Kaepernick Receive a Nobel Peace Prize?

As sports players join a growing movement of kneeling during the national anthem ahead of games to protest racial injustice, we get response from one of the advisers to the player who started it all, former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Dr. Harry Edwards, a longtime staff consultant with the San Francisco 49ers, says he hopes Kaepernick "will become a person of the year" and should be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Edwards is Professor Emeritus of sociology at the University of California, Berkeley, and author of "The Revolt of the Black Athlete," reissued this year for its 50th anniversary edition. He was the architect of the 1968 Olympic Project for Human Rights.
