Colin Kaepernick's first advert with Nike has dropped

A Wisconsin politician is speaking out on the new Nike add featuring Colin Kaepernick. Just about a year ago though, the world's largest auto manufacturer, Ford, also took it upon themselves to defend National Football League players who take a knee to protest injustice.

The younger Trump replicated Nike's ad nearly to a T - the words that appeared across Kaepernick's face in the black and white photo were now over President Trump's: "Believe in something".

Newton said last season he thought the way Kaepernick has been treated was, "unfair", and when asked his thoughts on the new Nike campaign, Newton doubled down in his support. "I stand with Nike, every day, all day".

Nike's decision has been heavily criticized by some customers who posted videos to social media of them burning and cutting up their Nike attire.

Kaepernick became a lightning rod by kneeling during the US national anthem as a protest against racial injustice and police brutality.

College of the Ozarks, a small school of just over 1,400 students in Point Lookout, Mo., made the announcement on Wednesday.

Nike said a 90-second version of the ad will air mostly on TV.

Nadal feeling fortunate after edging Thiem in thriller
Thiem came out swinging, and connecting; he hit five aces, 13 winners, and handed Nadal a rare bagel in the first set. Thiem had an early 3-0 lead in the tie-breaker, and was able to close it out on his second set point.

When it comes to Serena Williams, the controversial and out of work quarterback praises her as "the greatest athlete ever" - while throwing similar compliments at stars like Odell Beckham, Shaquem Griffin and the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team.

"Don't ask if your dreams are insane, ask if they're insane enough", Kaepernick says at the end of the video.

The ads feature Nike's trademark "Just Do It" slogan alongside the quarterback's face and the words "Believe in something". He has an ongoing greivance filed against the NFL's owners for colluding against signing him to a contract.

Among the ads is a close-up of Kaepernick and the line "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything".

Kaepernick's protests of racial injustice launched a movement across the NFL. An NFL request to dismiss the case was denied last month, meaning there is sufficient evidence for it to go to an arbitrator.

Closing his remarks, he said he stood "for anybody who believes in change".
