Trevor Noah reacts to #JustBurnIt campaign: ‘Nike already has your money’

What did Jerry Jones say about Nike’s new ad campaign with Colin Kaepernick? | Fort Worth Star-Telegram

On Monday Nike dropped a new campaign featuring former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, the man who kneeled during the national anthem to protest police brutality and sparked a movement, captioned with the words "Believe in something".

The president's son posted his own version of the ad on Instagram Wednesday with the comment, "There, fixed it for you".

"In their new ad campaign, we believe Nike executives are promoting an attitude of division and disrespect toward America", College of the Ozarks President Jerry C. Davis said in a statement.

The problem with most of the commentary I've heard and read is that it's delivered by middle-aged or older men, a lot of them white, who aren't even close to Nike's target audience.

The ad, part of Nike's 30th anniversary "Just Do it" campaign, has outraged many.

Reportedly, Catholic reformation organizations also joined the protest which had been called by the Joint Christian Council. The protesting nuns rejected the charge and said they will continue their agitation till justice was delivered.

The former 49ers quarterback is revealed as the narrator toward the end of the spot. "I stand with Nike, every day, all day". Now they've given him an excuse to send out a new smoke screen to help us forget about Russian Federation, rampant corruption and abducted children. I think that's one great thing God gave us, is the freedom of choice.

"If people say your dreams are insane, if they laugh at what people think you can do, good", Kaepernick says in the ad as a skateboarder aces a stunt.

Kaepernick was the first NFL player to not stand during the national anthem at the beginning of the 2016-17 season.

Canadian teen soccer star Alphonso Davies is among the athletes featured in a new Nike campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick that's drawing attention worldwide.

In announcing the deal, Nike said he was "one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation".

The Titans were without Marcus Mariota after he suffered an elbow injury in the third quarter against the Dolphins . The Dolphins marched down the field with a 12-play, 98-yard drive in the second quarter to take their first lead.

There were 2.7 million mentions of Nike over the previous 24 hours, the social media analysis firm Talkwalker said at midday, an increase of 135 percent over the previous week.

"I think it's a awful message and a message that shouldn't be sent", Trump said, though he acknowledged Nike's right to decide its own marketing strategy.

The advert, titled "Dream Crazy", has Kaepernick narrating over images and footage of various athletes with inspirational stories, including National Basketball Association icon LeBron James, tennis star Serena Williams and Kenyan runner Eliud Kipchoge. "Even if it means sacrificing everything".

Nike also will create an apparel line for Kaepernick, including a signature shoe, and contribute to his Know Your Rights charity, the person said.

That said, some of the other stuff Kaepernick has said and done, including wearing socks depicting police as pigs, goes way beyond respectful to stupid.
