Nike Reveals Powerful New Colin Kaepernick Ad

Nike's Kaepernick ad for the 30th anniversary of the "Just Do It" campaign was released this week and drew a mix of support and opposition on social media.

The college said it will "choose its country over company", and remove all athletic uniforms that were bought from Nike as well as any clothing containing its emblems.

But they were willing to watch and make a more informed position on Nike's message rather than the messenger.

During Thursday's National Football League season opener between the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons, a new Nike ad featuring Colin Kaepernick took the internet by storm.

Kaepernick tweeted the video with the caption, "Believe in something".

Mr. Kaepernick led the national-anthem protests at NFL games and has said he would not "show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color".

Aretha Franklin given the ultimate send-off by pals, celebs
Some of the performers, including Stevie Wonder , counted Aretha Franklin as a friend and colleague for many decades. Organizers told CNN the service was to touch on Franklin's significance to her friends, family and fans.

It's been two years since the former 49ers QB took a knee during the National Anthem to protest systemic racial injustice and police brutality and Trump has been right there to criticize him heavily nearly every step of the way.

"Thank you for believing in me, as well as Nike and being able to do this", he said to the crowd.

President Donald Trump says he doesn't think Nike's endorsement deal with Colin Kaepernick is appropriate. "If you want to find sacrifice, you're more likely to find that in somebody that wears this nation's uniform, not somebody on some athletic field who's making a lot of money", he said, noting that a retired four-star general who served in Vietnam is the chairman of the board at the school. "Stay that way, because what nonbelievers fail to understand is that calling a dream insane is not an insult, it's a compliment".

Kaepernick is unsigned by any NFL team, and is now suing the league for allegedly blackballing him over his protests.

The former 49ers quarterback is revealed as the narrator toward the end of the spot. To celebrate that rich diversity, the second film in the JDI series, "Dream Crazy", focuses on a collection of stories that represent athletes who are household names and those who should be. It features young athletes who compete amid various challenges, touching on issues of gender, disabilities and weight loss, among others.

Don't ask if your dreams are insane. "Ask if you're insane enough".
