    I hate it when companies make ads that appeal to your inner self and make you start to question your choices and such. And most of them are fucking car ads.

    There was a lot of good material in there. One thing, however, that really made me angry was learning that Dodge trucks were just basically using Doctor King's words to pimp their sales.
    He was one of the greatest leaders of the 20th century and his memory should not be trivialized like that.
    (Two quick things:
    1) I'm a 65 year-old white guy;
    2) I have never liked Dodge- Chrysler to begin with (they're just cheaply made.)

    Your stupid comment, "Stop shooting black people," illustrates why the country has rejected the Occupy Kneelers, just as they did Hands Up, Don't Shoot and Black Lives Matter. Blacks are not being hunted or killed by cops just because they have nothing better to do. A black man is more likely to be shot by another black man. We know the facts and reject the idiocy.

    The Indonesian factory dorms for Nike workers have dirt floors and brick walls, as well as no windows to fuel the flames with oxygen. So you can't burn them. They are fire safe.

    Colin Kaepernick is nothing more than an anti-white racist bigot.. he needs to shave and do something about that disgusting hair on his head too.. and hopefully Mr Jeffries here will become one of the next high-profile celebrity suicide cases..

    Let's call an ace and ace here. Colin was a quarterback who had his success but, for whatever reasons, became a mediocre quarterback. He got cut and to try to save his career he came up with this kneeling bullshit to try to deflect away from the fact that he was, in fact, a mediocre quarterback who had lost his starting position and was looking at not being on a roster at all. He took a flavor-of-the-month social justice warrior issue and ran with it. Congratulations, Colin, your ruse worked. People have forgotten what a shit quarterback you are and now you are making millions off of an issue that has been proven over and over to be a lie. You grew up in an area that has a median household income of $60,000 a year. The only oppression you knew about being a person of color came from your history books and programs you watched on TV. And people like Jim Jefferies pick up the torch and roll with it so they don't look like racists or to feed their self righteousness.

    I'm not condoning police brutality or targeting ANYONE because of their race, but I strongly disagree with the wording of the ad..believing in something, even if it means sacrificing everything, should be on the tombstone of every service member that lost their life doing something they truly believed in, whether they were black, white, hispanic, chinese, ect...

    nike took a gamble against NFL's dislike in regards to the protest, yes it is about capitalism, but at the same time, its about supporting what the buyers of Nike support, and that is the black lives matter movement.

    if collin knew anything about morals he would have taken his stand on his own time and not on his fans time. they bought the tickets they paid for that bit of time, it wasnt his to take any kind of stand on.
    so, fuck kap, fuck nike, and fuck it I will have myself another beer!

    Why watch a game that 60 minutes of play takes 3-4 hours? No other sport are the players so overpaid and lazy. I think unless you like to sit and drink beer for hours with nothing else to do there is very little to enjoy about it. Catch the 10 minute highlight 2 hours after the game and you just saved 4 hours of your life. Just my opinion so if your offended change your panties and take a walk.

    From one black man to another.
    The cops are least of the black man’s (or woman’s) worries. Within the streets of Chicago and elsewhere. We as black people are killing each other in “bulk”.
    Why in the hell is Colin Kaepernick in the streets of Chicago kneeling? You see black folks don’t want to talk about that. See that's what wrong with us Black Folks we are afraid to speak the truth of what’s REALLY going on within our Black Communities but we have no problem pointing the finger at others. But the truth will set you free!!! The Holy Bible speaks of pointing the finger:
    Hosea 4:4-19 (New Living Testament) “Don’t point your finger at someone else and try to pass the blame!”.
    We have thousands upon thousands of innocent babies, youngsters and some adults dying in the streets of Chicago from Black On Black murder crime. But yet the black man’s (or woman) mouth including Colin Kaepernick’s is shout close about that issue compared to the average of 1 or 5 black men (or women) shot by a cop per year.
    Wake up NEGROES we are killing ourselves and our babies. This is what the white man (or woman) want YOU to do so they want have to worry about doing it themselves. So, at the same time have conversations about cop shootings on black people and Black On Black murder crime in Chicago and nationwide.
    Apparently “Black Lives Don’t Matter” within the streets of Chicago.
    How STUPID and IGNORANT can a race of people be. Enough SAID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Say what you like, but the fact is, that if marketing research proves that it's profitable to put Kaepernick in an ad campaign, then that proves that the majority of Americans aren't murderous, racist bigots.
    I think that's good news.
    Thank you, Nike.
