Nike Probably Doesn’t Mind If Angry White Dudes Burn Their Shoes (HBO)

Over the Labor Day weekend, some people chose to exercise their rights as Americans to burn their shoes.

They uploaded videos and images of themselves destroying their own Nike products to protest Nike’s new campaign, which features the face of Colin Kaepernick and the caption, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”

The ad references Kaepernick’s choice to kneel during the pregame national anthem in protest of police treatment of minorities — a protest that, according to multiple polls, most Americans don’t approve of. So why would a company as big as Nike want to sacrifice a big chunk of their customer base for politics?

In short, because it’s not politics. It’s business. And Nike is gambling that the people who are angry about the ad won’t affect their bottom line much.

“I think Nike is very okay with losing those people as customers,” says Ian Schafer, founder and former CEO of Deep Focus, which has worked with Nike in the past.

“Take A Knee … My Ass” Brought This Country Singer Back Into The Spotlight (HBO)

This past November, Neal McCoy, a country singer from Texas who had a string of hits in the nineties, decided to take a stand. During a show in Missouri, McCoy unveiled a song titled “Take a Knee, My Ass,” which criticized NFL players who had decided to protest police brutality and systemic racism during the national anthem. McCoy, whose father served in the United States Army, believed that their gesture was disrespectful to the sacrifice US Army veterans had given to the country.

His song’s lyrics, which include the chorus, “I think of those whose freedom was not free and I say, ‘take a knee, my ass,'” were meant to be a patriotic statement and a rallying cry for conservatives and patriots, who McCoy believes have not been vocal enough on the topic.

“Take a Knee My Ass” went viral, with millions of views across streaming music platforms, YouTube and Facebook Live. But it also generated an almost instant backlash that included veterans who did not agree with the song’s message.

VICE News met with McCoy and his good friend Wayne Newton in Las Vegas to talk about the song, the meaning of patriotism, and Colin Kaepernick’s place in the fight for racial justice in America.

National Anthem Protests Are Spreading To High School Football (HBO)

“The police’s duty is to protect and serve, and if you feel like they’re not doing that, then you need to speak up,” Berkeley High School senior Armani Turner-Jenkins told his teammates in a locker room meeting.

He’s among the young people around the country turning what was a national controversy started by NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick — who hasn’t been standing during the national anthem to protest the treatment of African-Americans by police officers — into their own local protests.

“All of us were thinking about it soon as we saw Kaepernick do it one day,” team captain Jaden Lewis told VICE News correspondent Jay Caspian Kang. “We’re like, ‘Let’s stand up with these other teams, with these other players. Let’s take it serious.’”

Protests against racism are not new to Berkeley students. Last year, a student left a threatening message on a computer in the school’s library, prompting more than half of the student body to walk out of class. In 2014, a noose was left to hang on a tree on campus.

“That’s my history that you’re kind of just disrespecting and putting it out there, and it’s not funny,” team captain Brandon Bailey said.

The Berkeley football team, inspired by Kaepernick and with the support of their coach, decided to take action in the form of a protest.

“We’re kneeling down to stand up for black oppression and police brutality, and with us locking arms it shows that we’re doing it as a team and we’re united in what we’re doing,” Bailey said.

Arian Foster Says National Anthem Is ‘A Racist Song’ (HBO)

This segment originally aired Oct. 17, 2016, on VICE News Tonight on HBO.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick knelt again on Sunday as the national anthem played before his team faced off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, continuing his protest against injustices toward minorities and inspiring others to follow.

Miami Dolphins running back Arian Foster began kneeling during the pregame anthem on Sept. 11, and has been a vocal supporter of Kaepernick ever since. “I don’t even think the song should be our national anthem, because it’s a racist song, if you look at the other verses of it,” he told VICE News correspondent Jay Caspian Kang.

Even some high school football players have participated in the protest. “I think it’s a beautiful thing,” Foster said.

The movement shows no signs of slowing down, as similar protests have recently been made by cheerleaders, marching bands, and basketball teams. “What would have to happen for me to stand for the national anthem?” Foster asked himself. “Honestly, man, I’m not sure I will stand again.”
