Nike is certainly provoking debate by hiring Kaepernick, GlobalData Retail managing director Neil Saunders said in a report, while noting the risks of a company getting involved in a "highly politicized" issue.
After seeing Nike's announcement that names Kaepernick the face of the "Just Do It" campaign, venture capitalist Arlan Hamilton bought a pair of Nike shoes.
And while Kaepernick has been somewhat elusive over the past few years - he's picked his spots when it's come to speaking publicly and stepping into the spotlight - his presence remains felt in the National Football League (and across sports), even if he's not on a roster.
"If Nike wants to go down this path I would like to say something about the 1,000 black people shot in Chicago since Memorial Day including the six killed over the weekend", Payne opined, seeming to miss the point of Kaepernick's protest.
"I think every athlete, every human, and definitely every African-American should be completely grateful and honored how Colin and Eric are doing so much more for the greater good", she said.

People upset with the move have started setting fire to their sneakers and sportswear to protest Nike using Kaepernick to promote the 30th anniversary of its "Just Do It" advertising campaign.

So while this new campaign represents Nike taking a stand, it also illustrates where the world is headed. Even it if it means sacrificing everything. It also works because of the NFL's own actions.
"Oh, Nike! You are soooo courageous!" the statement says.
