This week, Nike put its stake in the ground in the culture wars by launching an ad campaign for the 30th anniversary of "Just Do It" featuring former NFL QB Colin Kaepernick.

He told ESPN: "I think Nike is trying to get out ahead of it and trying to do something special, and I think they've done that". "Some pretty powerful people in the spot".

Nike, which aired a Kaepernick-narrated ad during the National Football League season opener, is "free to campaign as it sees fit", just as the college is free "to ensure that it respects our country and those who truly served and sacrificed", says Marci Linson, the school's vice-president for patriotic activities. "You can be darn sure that Nike has done its research and knows what will move its product and who this campaign will resonate with". An obvious reference to Kaepernick's decision to kneel in protest of police brutality during the pre-game national anthem ceremony, and the years of controversy and joblessness which ensued, the pictures immediately went viral, prompting outrage from the far right, including the president himself. They have somewhere it says you will stand.

Woods has remained with Nike throughout his professional career, helping it bring golf clubs and balls to the market in the late 1990s and continuing as an endorser of apparel and the brand after Nike left the hard-goods business two years ago.




Iguodala, a long-time Nike athlete, has never been shy in speaking about social issues, and this isn't the first time he's shown his support for Kaepernick and the brand and what they stand for. One Missouri college responded by burning a metaphorical bridge.

Stills began kneeling during the anthem in 2016 and has been vocal discussing racial inequality and other issues. "I honor the flag".

Brooks Koepka, the PGA Championship victor and two-time U.S. Open champ, said the biggest victor might be the publicity sparked for Nike. There's some people that say they want to talk about it and say they want to discuss it and debate it, but they don't.
