Ex-NFLer Likens Nike Hiring Kaepernick to 9/11 and Pearl Harbor

Nike is a business, and their decision to make Colin Kaepernick the star of their new ad campaign wasn't just a political move, it was a business move.

Ellen asked Strahan if he would take part in the protest, which is meant to call attention to police brutality and racial inequality, if he were still part of the NFL, and he said he would kneel on the field as the national anthem played. But President Trump, who has been condemning National Football League player protests for the past year, has deemed the protests to be a challenge to the military and the American flag. His version shows the president's face.

According to data from Edison Trends, online sales of Nike products jumped 31 percent between the Sunday before and the Tuesday after Labor Day, almost double last year's 17 percent increase over the same time period.

China has experienced violent attacks in public places in recent years, including bombings and arson of buses and buildings. Video shared online showed a red SUV driving across the busy square at a high rate of speed, striking at least 2 people.

"If Nike chooses to apologize to our troops and to our law enforcement officers, then - and only then - will TMU reconsider the brand", Caner said. "In the meanwhile, let us honor true heroes, those who protect us daily, some even sacrificing their own lives". They are the true heroes. ESPN reports that 25 percent of respondents viewed the NFL's handling of players' social justice protests in a positive light, while 30 percent of respondents approved of Trump's response. Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr. said they are reconsidering their contract with Nike, which now runs through 2024. Then he added, "I don't know about you, but I'm a little exhausted of that", to which the congregation responded with amens.

"America may not be the best country in the world, and we have a lot of faults", Morris added, "but I tell you what, a lot of folks died for the sake of what the flag represents". "That is the ultimate sacrifice". Kaepernick said the proceeds would go to the Know Your Rights Camp, a campaign he founded to raise youth awareness about self-empowerment and interacting with law enforcement. "He's protesting injustices that he sees happening", said Strahan.
