I saw the Nike ad and admit it has Beautiful sentiments. I thought it was an Ad for St. Jude's Children's Hospital?

But they could have gotten ANY player to do that endorsement? Like New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning?

"The Giants quarterback raised nearly $3 million over a five year-period from 2007 to 2012 to build his Eli Manning Children's Clinic in Mississippi, which provides outpatient care to more than 75,000 children each year"

    100% agreed.

    There were so many people who are much more deserving.

    Too bad Eli couldn't have been chosen solely because he is a white man from a wealthy family.

    No, they didn't drop the ball. They picked exactly the person they wanted, and they wanted him for a variety of reasons.

    You don't think they realize they could have chosen other players? BTW, their stock has gone up 31%.

      Their stock is down $2Billion. Their sales are up 31% since the same time in Sept 2017 - what was in in August 2018? If you don't know what you are talking about... don't answer the question.

    Why? Because you have a problem with a black man who has the balls to stand up for something, or in this case, kneel for something?

    Sales for Nike are up 31% on the back of that ad.

    Seems pretty shrewd to me.

      We don't know if sales or up or not. It appears to be a big spin. They are comparing Sept 1 2017 with Sept 1 2018. What were the sales 8/23/2018???

      The Ad makes me want to donate money to St. Judes, not buy their stupid shoes.

    For those of us who have experienced police brutality, it means a great deal to know that there are people out there who don't blindly follow the pro-police propaganda line.

      Mindy Sue- It is a sad existence you live in. You can't think of situation where they did "good"... there are stories every day. But what resonates the most with me? Situations of mass shootings directed at officers (SB 2015, Dallas 2016, etc) & they go out there to do their job & keep us safe.
