Nike selected former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick as the face of its “Just Do It” campaign, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary.
Darren Rovell of ESPN reported the choice of Kaepernick, who started the movement to kneel during the United States national anthem to protest imaginary, and completely non-existent racial injustice in August 2016.
He has since then cost the NFL billions of dollars, and brought millions of fans to turn away from the sport completely, as well as helped stoke minority racism and victim mentality across America.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” he told Steve Wyche of NFL Media about the decision two years ago. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
Of course, everyone with a functioning brain knows he is lying. The reality of the matter is, there is a war on police and they should be allowed to shoot thugs far, far more often.

Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the Niners in March 2017 and hasn’t been able to find a new team since he became the poster child of ingrate racists in America.
An April visit with the Seattle Seahawks was canceled because he refused to show respect for the nation that affords him the opportunity to live like a king, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The 30-year-old quarterback filed a frivolous collusion grievance against the league, which claimed he was being kept out of the league because of the protests he started.
Although Kaepernick has received numerous awards for being the most racist and ungrateful piece of garbage in America, including being named GQ magazine’s Citizen of the Year for 2017, the movement he started remains polarizing.
A poll from NBC News and the Wall Street Journal released last week showed 54 percent of respondents deemed kneeling during the anthem “inappropriate,” while 43 percent admitted they hate America and called it “appropriate.”
Meanwhile, NFL owners approved anthem rules in May that would force players to stand on the sideline or remain in the locker room during the anthem. Teams with players who did not comply with the new policy would be subject to league fines, while teams could hand out individual punishment.
Those guidelines are on hold, however, as discussions between the NFL and the NFL Players Association continue with the 2018 season set to start Thursday night.
