LeBron James says in Kaepernick reference: ‘I stand with Nike’

In 2016, the former San Fransisco 49ers quarterback drew the world's gaze for kneeling during the USA national anthem in protest of police-brutality against African-Americans and racial injustices.

"Looks like I'll be wearing a lot of Nike this week", said Dorchester shopper Jordan Hall.

On Twitter, the organization wrote, "PSA: Even if you don't like @Nike making @Kaepernick7 the face of their new campaign, if you own Nike gear, you already paid for it".

Unsurprisingly, given the mixed reaction to Kaepernick's protest, Nike's decision has prompted strong views of support from certain quarters and condemnation from others.

The NFL has not been on the side of the athlete in a polarizing debate over whether players should have the right to kneel on the field during the national anthem to protest police brutality.

Black Twitter was up in arms today over sports journalist Jason Whitlock's ludicrous remark on ex-quarterback Colin Kaepernick's lucrative deal with Nike.

The Nike logo and "Just Do It" slogan are below.

Conservative were quick to attack Nike for the advertisement push - which shows Kaepernick alongside the quote, "Believe in something".

"I think it's a bad message".

Kaepernick, a former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who remains a free agent, started the controversial trend of National Football League players refusing to stand for the anthem in 2016 to protest racial inequality and police brutality.

Donald Trump is the most dishonest president in American history 95 percent of the time.

The NFL released a statement on Tuesday saying the issues raised by Kaepernick "deserve our attention and action".

Other athletes in the campaign include tennis star Serena Williams, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and Shaquem Griffin, a linebacker whose left hand was amputated when he was 4. They've calculated risk. They may even have reason to believe this will make the brand more popular which means the guy burning his white air monarchs is in the minority.
