Props to Nike. They are definitely with Colin Kaepernick.
Colin has been a Nike athlete since 2011 and Nike had been paying Colin Kaepernick all along, waiting for the right moment. That moment is now, as he becomes the face of the company’s 30th anniversary of the “Just Do It” campaign.
The sports brand unveiled a new ad to commemorate the 30th anniversary of their ‘Just Do It’ campaign starring the former NFL quarterback who has not played on a NFL team since 2016 when he famously started he “take a knee’ national anthem demonstrations.
In the ad, Colin is looking at the camera, and printed over the image is: “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything. #JustDoIt.”
As part of the new deal Colin negotiated with Nike, the Swoosh will be putting out a new signature shoe and apparel and making substantial contributions and donations to Colin’s Know Your Rights foundation. So make sure you SUPPORT Colin and buy his new line when it comes out!
I also want to give a shout out to Serena Williams. She too is apart of the Nike 30th anniversary and her ad is powerful as well:
And with Colin’s collusion case getting the go ahead to continue as an arbitrator just threw out the NFL’s motion to dismiss and that now paves the way for a full-blown trial in which NFL owners will have to testify under oath. Things are about to get REAL! Keep fighting Kap! #ImWithKap
