Did Colin Kaepernick Sell Out The Black Struggle to Nike? (WATCH)

*Attorney Antonio Moore and Political Commentator Yvette Carnell breakdown the multicultural Colin Kaepernick Nike commercial, and explain what it means for Black America.

The two delve deep into the new ad Nike released around Colin Kaepernick, the company’s history with black athletes, and what the consequence may be for mixing capitalism and politics so overtly.

What are your thoughts EURweb? Did Kap & Nike fall short?

-Q: What would you like to see changed?

-KAEPERNICK: There’s a lot of things that need to change. One specifically is police brutality, there’s people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable.

The cops are getting paid leave for killing people. That’s not right. That’s not right by anyone’s standards.

-Q: So many people see the flag as a symbol of the military. How do you view that? What do you say to those people?

-KAEPERNICK: I have great respect for men and women that have fought for this country. I have family, I have friends that have gone and fought for this country.

They fight for freedom. They fight for the people, they fight for liberty and justice for everyone. And that’s not happening.

People are dying in vain because this country isn’t holding their end of the bargain up, as far as giving freedom and justice, liberty to everybody. It’s something that’s not happening.

I’ve seen videos. I’ve seen circumstances where men and women that have been in the military have come back and been treated unjustly by the country they fought for and have been murdered by the country they fought for, on our land. That’s not right.
