Nike, the NFL’s official apparel partner, is celebrating the 30-year landmark of its “Just Do It” slogan and signed Colin Kaepernick to front the campaign. Kaepernick, a former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, started the trend of NFL players refusing to stand for the national anthem in 2016. Fox News commentator, Tucker Carlson, says it’s a ‘real problem’ when the most successful people in a society scorn the very society that made them successful. The executives at Nike deny that Kaepernick’s kneeling during the anthem is scorn for the United States. This report includes video of Nike customers burning their shoes in protest. It will be interesting to see how large this protest will grow. -GEG
