Local Charity Encourages Those Protesting Nike to Donate Instead of Destroying Their Gear
SACRAMENTO -- A Nike Ad campaign highlighting Colin Kaepernick is sparking a strong reaction from people across the country. Some are destroying their Nike gear to protest the company’s decision to use the former San Francisco 49er as the face of their campaign. The Turlock Native has sparked controversy since 2016 when he began kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality against African Americans.
