Nike release powerful new ad narrated by Colin Kaepernick

Nike release powerful new ad narrated by Colin Kaepernick

Nike's ad features a black-and-white close-up of Kaepernick's face and a message in white letters that serves as a clear show of support for his cause.

Kaepernick was the first NFL player to not stand during the national anthem at the beginning of the 2016-17 season. However, Canterbury said that is exactly what law enforcement is fighting to protect.

"Don't ask if your dreams are insane, ask if they're insane enough", Kaepernick asks at the end. In our experience, boycotts and similar exercises do not succeed and often serve only to enrich the company - which is not what we want to do. "If Nike is ashamed of America, we are ashamed of them".

Canterbury did not hold back when speaking about the right to free speech. At a rally in Alabama previous year, Trump said team owners should "get that son of a bitch off the field" if a player knelt in protest of injustice during the anthem. About halfway through, he says, "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything", an apparent reference to his career as quarterback for the 49ers, which ended past year following his controversial decision to kneel while the national anthem was sung to protest injustice.

"Nike is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts", Trump tweeted.

Amazon joins $1 trillion club, on pace to overtake Apple
But in 2018, Amazon first reported profit of nearly $2 billion and then another quarter of more than $2 billion. The development comes just a little over a month after technology giant Apple reached the $1 trillion mark.

Kaepernick has been unable to land a job in the National Football League since his protest.

After watching a video in which a particular Twitter user burned his Nike sneakers in protest of the company's association with Kaepernick, Gobert stepped in to call out the hypocrisy.

"I think it's awesome they're stepping up and spreading awareness", Wilson said.

Former NFL player Colin Kaepernick, who protested against social and racial inequality in the United States by kneeling during pre-game anthems, has been chosen to help mark the 30th anniversary of the brand's famous Just Do It slogan.

Prime Time Sports in the Chapel Hills Mall has a sign that reads: "Still choosing to stand / All Nike 1/2 price / "Just doing it".
