Things We Saw Today: Nike Reveals Their Ultra-Inspiring Colin Kaepernick Commercial

Earlier this week, Nike unveiled an ad featuring Colin Kaepernick that sent conservatives into a sock-destroying frenzy. Now, they’ve revealed a commercial featuring and narrated by Kaepernick, set to air during tonight’s NFL season opener.

The commercial celebrates Kaepernick and other athletes who defy expectations and follow their “crazy dreams.” It’s incredibly moving and I can’t wait to see what sort of merch it drives people–people who refuse to accept that NFL players kneeling has nothing to do with the troops and everything to do with institutional injustice and the systemic murdering of Black people–to destroy.

It’s almost Friday!
