Police union, black police group disagree on Nike ad featuring Colin Kaepernick

Police union, black police group disagree on Nike ad featuring Colin Kaepernick

"I feel like that was a really powerful statement to a lot of other companies".

"What was Nike thinking?".

Nike's Twitter account has seen its "sentiment" drop 38 percent since the ad ran earlier this week, meaning its seen a sharp increase in negative comments, according to data shared by 4C Insights on Thursday. As a camera pans to reveal Kaepernick's face, a reflection of a United States flag is visible on the facade of a building behind him. "In the meanwhile, let us honor true heroes, those who protect us daily, some even sacrificing their own lives". Narrated by Kaepernick, the ad includes appearances by other high-profile African-American athletes Odell Beckham Jr., LeBron James and Serena Williams.

Milstead said he believes Kaepernick "is entitled" to his opinion about law enforcement and what he wants to do during the national anthem, but he also believes "in the notability of policing and I believe you respect the flag and stand for the national anthem".

Kaepernick is now in litigation against the NFL, claiming that team owners colluded to keep him out of the league.

As debates over the Nike ad and National Football League players' on-field activism continue, the National Football League released a statement Tuesday night, stating: "The social justice issues that Colin and other professional athletes have raised deserve our attention and action".

Bitcoin extends slump on Goldman Sachs report
As reported on Wednesday , Goldman Sachs (gs) has apparently deprioritized its plans to establish a cryptocurrency trading desk . Coverage of these developments had lead the crypto industry to believe the bank would soon launch its crypto trading desk.

"If people say your dreams are insane, if they laugh at what you think you can do: good, stay that way", Kaepernick begins.

"We believe Colin is one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation, who has leveraged the power of sport to help move the world forward", Nike spokesperson Gino Fisanotti told ESPN.

"Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything", Kaepernick says.

Some people took issue with the Kaepernick's prominence and message, destroying their Nike-logoed belongings in videos and photos posted to social media.

Which means Nike would have had to have doled out that much money to receive the same kind bang it received from the Kaepernick announcement.

"Nike, I love your gear, but you exhaust my spirit on this one".
