Colin Kaepernick’s Nike ad is decent but not as powerfully potent as 2016’s Come Out of Nowhere NBA campaign: MAKE HISTORY NOT APOLOGIES.

Yo so good; soul good.

Kaepernick’s Nike ad means sneaker culture goes full circle: in 1968 Tommy Smith and John Carlos protested during the anthem police brutality (they held up a Puma shoe.) Exact same template as Colin: ostracized from sports, abused…death threats etc.

None of this is new.
