Last night the NFL season kicked off with the opener game of the Atlanta Falcons vs. the Philadelphia Eagles. Popular 90's group Boyz II Men lent their vocals for the national anthem, but the talk of the night was all about Nike.
Nike premiered it's 30th anniversary, "Just Do It" campaign with Colin Kaepernick being the face and voice for the ad and features several other professional athletes including Serena Williams, LeBron James and more. An ad that challenges people to live their dreams full out.
"Don't ask if your dreams are crazy. Ask if they're crazy enough." - Nike
Following the announcement of Colin's likeness being used in the ad, several groups called for a boycott of the company. Videos surfaced all over social media of people burning Nike gear in anger of its choice to involve the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback.
The morning crew sat down to discuss Nike's bold choice and how it's not about disrespecting that flag, it’s about the police brutality that’s happening in America.
Take a listen to what Steve had to say:
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.
We salute Colin Kaepernick for standing, or in this case kneeling, for something he believes in.
