"What we're really saying here is the NBA players are participating in the social media revolution and reach that caliber of entertainment celebrity is and none of the other leagues are participating in the same way. He's nowhere this better illustrated than the widely divergent reactions between the NFL and the NBA to the black. Lives Matter Movement to Colin Kaepernick's treatment in the NFL and everything the NBA, probably should have done more sooner. But what they're doing now in the bubble with black lives, matter all over the courts, the players talking about it in every interview all over their social media accounts and the League embracing that an amplifying. Such, different strategy. I don't know how the call went down to put black lives matter on the court. I was pretty surprised to like tune into a playoff game doing research for this episode and see that the only branding on that court other than maybe the NBA logo is a massive black lives matter. It's sort of like to say that you shouldn't I shouldn't be saying. Wow. They really have the courage of their convictions, but like that really is what they're doing and I think a lot of the times, the NBA in their sort of leadership. It's almost like they haven't been the leader but when their players are clearly reaching out for them to do something, they quickly follow suit and I. Think an example is the the the protest game when I. Think is the Milwaukee Bucks decided to go back to the locker room and hey, we're not gonNA play this game. It was like ten minutes or something before the NBA were canceling this we're cancelling the other playoff game and like we're GONNA reschedule and we're not gonNA like fight this at all this is what we're doing and it was like I don't know if that's their explicit strategy but the idea of like let the players lead and we will follow on this stuff but the fact that like we will follow like we're not gonNA fight on it I I just think it's the right thing for the league to be doing it feels like their place. Total. Well, this is really interesting from A. Business standpoint and is fun to talk about on on acquired. I agree until they think it's just the right thing like morally in terms of being a leader or even dislike Nada a laggard to do but it's also good business and like it's really interesting strategy because what does this mean? You could be like, okay like social, media. I guess. That means something. Just, as one small example, the NBA is the first us. League till at the team sell advertising slots on players jerseys. So every time Lebron posts something on instagram where he's in his Lakers, jerseys wishes sponsored. Guess what that's a new ad impression for wish and Lebron has one.

I'm devastated. Hurt sad mad. We want justice for Briana. Yet Justice was meant for her neighbor's apartment walls. Not her beautiful life. Was I surprised at the verdict. Absolutely not. But damn it. I was And still I'm hurt and heavy hearted. I send my love to Briana's mother, family and friends. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry, man.

"So immature I, hate listening to him talk. Imagine his tweets I, follow him on twitter. Can't. Yeah, I have to go. You have no other countries are embarrassed like that. Oh. We are embarrassed I. Know other countries are laughing like what the Hell is America got going on. Pose me miss of the United States with the Jordan crying face. Absolutely. But I mean you don't think that you don't think that America has a president it deserves deal. I do I think that look now? America. Was Not created for black people. Okay. It wasn't created for African Americans. They brought us over here to build this place up for them. They set up these laws and all these backhanded things that you know work against us. This is the president that reflects what America truly is. And that that's that's my point like we are selfish greedy arrogant pompous wasteful vain. You know like I mean that is a good portion of the country. So Donald Trump represents. The, the the worst of us, what we can be so we have to self correct right? Because everybody's everybody wants to be on Instagram for likes in the models in the you know success and celebrity no matter what race it doesn't matter. Capitalism at all costs So it's definitely part of the fabric of this country but the good thing about it is we can always correct our mistakes donald trump to serve served as an example of how bad things can get in just four short years in another four can be totally worse because he's actually you know calling on his supporters in other white supremacists to basically be poll watchers here that comment I saw that. The, what's the? What's the? What's volunteer poll-watcher? First of all, never heard of that before I mean I definitely heard of you know volunteers helping to make sure you know that there's order in their structure, but I've never heard of poll-watchers, facs, guys he just made it up right then g did because that's what I'm saying his his biggest issue. Is Mail in ballots bright. So. Have you biggest issue with male imbalanced held is a poll-watcher have to do with mailing ballots? He wants people to intimidate voters. He wanted people to disrupt the election. That thing they're going to intimidate people of color they're going to try to tell you who to vote for. This is not this is not safe keep in mind. There are a lot of cities where, of course, black people what how can I say are outnumbered? Point where like for example, if we go if you go north pass Atlanta about. I'd say forty miles is some some cities that you know they still don't really too much care about us being in there you know in their space if you go about about forty five miles north of Atlanta or new I, think I say the east Atlanta is some spaces and CDs up there. So think about the black people who live in those areas and this this motherfucker just said on tv poll-watchers and shit like them imagine going to vote and being intimidated. About their safety. Yeah like think about that Shit, what's the? What's the area down in south Georgia by Br Brunswick think about that area Absolutely ms about Mississippi. Alabama. Just grabbed my daughter from Alabama is exit has confederate flags on that Damn exit is it's all on the billboard, but that's why a lot of people are choosing to do mailings to which, which is what he's against as well. Facts are not going to the polls. I'm voting early but I will be there I will be there masked up. Strapped up so and and I suggest a lot of people that you can. You can legally carry a firearm because I'm talking about illegal arm illegal firearm owner but I'm not playing in games of these people because they think they should is a joke in the sense of saying they really going to intimidate black people voting so no if you. If you have your legal gun owner. And and trump keeps pressing this narrative about his own bike. Did I posted something on my page he posted Donald Trump posted a sign yesterday that said. He says. Volunteer. To be a trump election poll-watchers sign up today. Make America. Great again, and the website is army for trump back com plus I saw post instagram. Go You. That's how that's. That's the energy we take into the election Gotcha. Our Hebrew. All right. Let's shift gears a little bit Jesse Collins will be the first black person to produce the super bowl halftime show octavius who solo I would like you to go first on this. Well, first of all I think these about Damn Tam. Okay. That they had some flavor added on to that and I just think it's a good time to be black man. It's crazy because we're going through so much. But there is there's a bit of a shift you know what I'm saying and some of us are able to find a that little opening and get in there and make an impact. So I really do hope that this influences continue change in their own because Jay Z definite. The deal right for NFL. He's in charge of entertainment innuendo loan. So we did we did jealous and insecure last year. If they if it ain't black. I have no interest in it. Balls in Tampa this year to. They better have some Florida negroes in there don't know. Man. You. Know what there's a bit of reconcile. Here's the thing. I'm just kind of one of these people like there's been a reconciliation even on my part that needs to happen between Jay Z. Roger. Goodell and even Colin Kaepernick I'm just not wanting people delicious slide like like fame. You say we passed kneeling joyful happened everybody kneeling and where's the public apology? To Colin, Kaepernick and I know the radio says they all him apology. But where where is the press conference with the three of them are together and they standing in? They say we owe this man in apology class, right? We were wrong racial racial racial. A racial justice should be an issue of the NFL police brutality to be part of of the NFL Social Justice Reform, and we will look forward to working with Colin Kaepernick in the most productive way possible and give him some sort of position and let him shy. Then we can put out a Negro v one on stage because I still again I'm I just don't I don't let you slide. Colin letting this slide either but I think I I do believe. In my heart that something happened that we don't know about behind the scenes between a conversation with Colin and the NFL I'm still is it to me I'm just unrest a at. Something because it's kind of if you.
Interview with Calvin Baker
"Talk A lot about Colin. Kaepernick who of course has become far more than an athlete and more than any athlete of his generation has become super politicizing talk about how sports is a narrative of nationhood and definitely think that you could write eight the story of modern America on his last Assi What What do you? What do you? What are you? What are you thinking about? Colin Kaepernick. I think he's great. I think the truth almost didn't come to light. They. They suppress it for so long and so long and so long I think that it is. Emblematic of what's going on the country as a whole where you have this man and expressing is. Liberal belief. and. Becomes a lightly We tell ourselves we're in the twenty th century were everything is so diverse, and then you see what a lightning rod that becomes for. White. Anger. Someone expressing pride who is but also like. You can't kill black. That's radical athlete baboots how that's That's where we really are that. You can't say. Retaliates tally is wrong. Those are the hard enforces of racism, which I which I can chew colonialism in larger forces and patterns. How advanced how might and can the society be if you if it's if it's controversial as it was in that moment? Thankfully it's I think. As this moves forward. He's becoming raise established himself as one of a line of. Athletic spokespersons yet if you go back on tradition begins. Muhammad Ali's or the world and the Jim Brown's the world who's as like Oh as black versus one of the few people who is allowed any sort of visible Jackie Robinson in different. S. And that's end. And then he became corporate. Right. But the happiest people's right night. I talked about Jim Brown on the NFL who made the decision to leave NFL. After A manhood battle with art modell whose the owner Cleveland browns and direct line and one of the things on everything. We think we're saying there's historical precedent for it and the function and the horses ourselves. Insane. And so right. You look at that the and you look at what's happening feeling I'm not the first person. Say This I long chop wanted to contextualized story. And also like yeah. Camp is doing civil rights work. In the resistance that he faces shows you how much of this country is still against the most basic expression of civil rights what do you? What do you make of? The NFL along with the NBA? WNBA. Others. The institutions of sport have seemed to have come around to say you know we're going to embrace black lives matter. We're going to plastered all over the field or the court wear whatever you want. Neil. However, you want like you know we're fully supportive of the movement and yet gaps still doesn't have a job. So he still sacrificed his dream. Surely, it was his childhood dream that he achieved And then had that taken away chose to go after something bigger, and now that the the sports world, the NFL in particular has come around to his side of things. He is still left out which for so many of us for you to. ADDS a hypocritical sheen to all of it. I mean, I don't know I can't fully embrace what the NFL is doing until he is welcome back into the fold in a serious way. I mean, one of the. made the final cut I. Don't remember off the top of my head but wasn't Michael Vick can chilidog and still have A. Job in Colin Kaepernick, can't say. Shoot people. And not have a job. That's what I think. First of all the NFL. Lost me just I mean. There are a lot like their lot of sports. I. Love. I. Love Sports is you know and but there's always another sport and league baseball loss during steroids. Haven't been back. Haven't really looked back. I might watch catch on the corner of my eye, the barbershop every once in a while. The NFL. Because they are so far on what you say what you think the man like Avenue you know Muhammad, Ali's spent. Eighteen months in jail for Kosovo Vietnam War. I don't remember how much. Much of the baby actually did. Athletic careers. sports and they end when you're still a young individual with a lot of life ahead and as you read it as Jim Brown realize can't stop. By many miles at. And right the dream of NFL would it looks like it might be over I hope that it's eventually someone will give him a shot maybe but. And will air. We'll find the next stream. Nets like life purpose. That's always the challenge of being an athlete. It happened to him in a prematurely it's not fair but he's shown himself to be larger than that lead

"Just do a little fishing here and their. Own some hey, seem the chickens. We, appreciate that. Sanjay cody. About. The we'd sure feels like there's a lot. But big shot to coach for estimate question. Nick thing that conversation is kind of died off this year because I think he's now entering his fifth year being out of the NFL which is a very long time to not be in the NFL and we're very different world than whenever he i. Wasn't in the NFL obviously with a lot more I think from the NFL side being much more open arms to the message that Colin Kaepernick was trying to send in protests four years ago I don't know I was very excited for that workout last year. I was very open about that. I was very pumped about that just strictly because if you're not the NFL it takes. You can't be working out as hard as you would be in the NFL. So I was pumped for that workout that the NFL and Colin Kaepernick had originally set down in Atlanta now that ultimately got cancelled last minute and moved to a field an hour and a half away from there on a couple couch traveled in the ultimately didn't get picked up. It May said it was because they didn't trust at the NFL teams were just didn't trust the NFL at that point because of the amount of friction between Colin Kaepernick in the NFL in for me I wish he would have done that workout. I wish he would have dominated that work because by the way that would've got leaked out that he did well, or if he did that would've got leaked out immediately in now calling capital team was like well, that's going to get leaked out with the spin because the NFL's patrolling in it's not being filmed publicly or whatever. I just think a lot more people would be fighting a lot harder for calling Kaepernick if he would've just for one day just acted as if the NFL wasn't going, try to screw them over which. I can understand why he's felt that way I don't under-. I don't know the behind doors conversation in did that work out I think a lot more people would be like Hey, Colin. Kaepernick is doing everything we can to get back in the league, wants to be in the League and who knows how he's playing but right now I think calling gap has done a lot more for the world than he would if he was just an NFL quarterback so who knows if 'cause even trying to get back in the League right now? What I think. One of the biggest issues he had when he originally had the workout scheduled for what and at Atlanta's. There was some waivers that they want him to sign in the worrying something about the language wasn't right. He didn't feel comfortable saying I moved it. But my question for cody the caller getting back to him who just been Belan. Hey, and feeding the chickens all day long yeah I just wonder. If you bring you want to bring. It sounds like an explosive backfield was how well the browns run the ball how many plays game do you want cabinet? You want cabinet could be your starter. You're GonNa Bench Baker like what kind of plans do you have for this? This new revamped offense you I shouldn't hung up on cody because I'm sure he had a well thought out answer for that. That's on May Wild Cap. Who will be very marketable to Varies. On Baker there. Well. Baker. We is a mobile quarterback. He's athletic, but he's not running anybody who knows if Catholics I run anybody right now I think five years out of the game was a long time, and this is coming from somebody that just had to kick the ball and I'm three years out or whatever for your however long I am now if I WANNA learn to do in I'm probably the best shake near the best shape I've ever been in if I went out there and try to kick balls at the rate that I would have to I. Don't know if body it'd be like, yeah. Yeah. We're doing this and I wonder if Kathryn exploited the same, he's a much better. Athlete, than I am, but he'd be asked to do a lot more than I would be asked to to get back out there I just think that's a hard thing to be away from the game that long get back into it but I wish we would have been and why couldn't the NFL just be like yeah, we'll. We'll broadcast the workout they do that for everybody's combine like why wouldn't they just do that and call him wanted I don't know who knows. That's a situation where none of us have seen him play football at all other than a couple of highlights been thrown a depot. So who knows if you're good in knows workouts by the way with the NFL? Your free agent are not those. Of Cardio and those work you are running a lot in I. I wonder if. If that was one of the reasons. As he was like, I'm not gonNA puke all over. Even, if he was in the best shape e be in those workouts, they just try to kill people I've seen a couple of them like. Leave. dudes are dying out here. Some teams make you time of forty. Did, you have to do that now I didn't have the time of forty but Matt Flynn was telling me he was on the Patriots for. Like maybe part of this spring training camp one year and I think he said when they brought him in. They they're like, okay. Well, here you're gonNA run your forty I think Flynn said, okay I'll do anything but like I can't run a forty but that's not happening. I'm not doing it and I need to send him a text knows he actually ended up running it I don't think he would actually give tell me what they really time to Matt but. She'd make a seven, eight, nine year veteran of time forty when they ran a time, forty cents to combine isn't that very interesting because everybody mocks the importance of a forty yard dash for a lot of people including a quarterback would be an interesting position to have that. But the greatest coach and scout of all time bill belichick is making people run it even year nine that's maybe I changed my take on the forty man I'm like. They're no stone left unturned right again you're gonNA. Attention to detail like they're going to do they're going to go above and beyond I guess they want as much information as possible and every on their teams in my head bill belichick would be the last one to make him run for. Before, this story right here, Bill Belichick will be like. Was Magnum. NEWSHAM position. And make it good seven ten miles fan..
The National Anthem in Sports: What's Next?
"If you got an a time machine four years ago and set it for twenty twenty, your eyes would get wide for all kinds of reasons and the site of full teams superstars kneeling during the anthem with support from their coaches and owners and leaks. That would be one of the most startling. Players coaches. Game officials alike, all taking me in Orlando, our full moment before the game during the national anthem all of the players wearing black lives matter shirts most of them taking a knee including Naperville Central Alum Casey short and team made Julia. Earth's clearly emotions running high for both of them in that moment with a moment of silence here and respect pre-game in support of social justice seventeen different Texas rangers players took a knee during that moment including meadow door Robinson. Torino's NFL is kicking off tonight and whether you cosigned the venue of his protest or not Colin Kaepernick did prove something that both sides of the aisle can agree up. There is no ritual more sacred in American sports than the. Star spangled banner. It would be crazy to underestimate how it makes us feel. Fans as citizens on all kinds of levels, and if you're a musician performing the anthem, I'm testing the microphone check one, two, your the one who channels almost emotions and identities in that pregnant moment. Can you hear that John Batiste is from New Orleans. Say Julia. Grad. Who among many hats leads the band for the late show with Stephen Colbert. His latest take on the national anthem played before the first game of the NBA Restart in Orlando back in July. When players took the court amid questions of how they keep the focus on social justice from inside the bubble. Tonight's presentation of the national anthem has been recorded by musician producer activist and Louisiana Native John Booties. This great to be here. Thank you for having me. So I wanna know what went through your mind when you're contemplating how to perform this particular song at this particular moment. What did it mean to have this opportunity to remotely address this community amid a broader social movement in our country? Asking these questions of how we fit into society and what? Society owes us in what society continues to maintain the status quo have been questions that I've been wrestling with prior to. All of the social unrest that we're seeing. Wrestling with these questions in dealing with the dice, sport influences of black music and really chronicling my own personal experiences, a black man in America and as a musician from the south, and you know this this moment presented itself. And it really felt organic to step into it. The anthem really being this combination, this historical document if you will in our country. There's also there seems to be a flavor of like to my on educated yearly southern rap kind of feeling the beats that you put in there. There's the orchestra sound of drums. There's maybe some Hendrix. So I just want you to clarify what went into your arrangement. Era Pablo you heard a lot. So many strains of the black American experience. Me Bay from the south ahead of bounce being. That is something that I grew up here in all over the streets in New Orleans. I. Picked up the Guitar Midway through with this kind of nod to Jimi. Jimi Hendrix version from. Woodstock The Blues Music which came from sharecroppers and slaves that then evolved into rock and roll and RB. Adding that to the anthem with the classical timpanist and the cello being the counter line to what I was playing on the piano. Gives it this epic quality that I feel? I ask for a deserves. If. They were musicians. What kind of activism would my heroes portray in a moment like this o'hare? And Counter John Lewis. Out Gradually, but we wanted to be free now. mlk My poor little children. Will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of skin but by the content of character, I have a dream. Now, John Is there a particular rendition of the song throughout history that resonates with you. is so many but you have to pick Whitney. You know come on man. Yes.

Whitney said No. WIT WITH KNEE HOUSTON. Sings the anthem the way that it should be saw. Law. John I gotta say the Marvin Gaye Nineteen Eighty three NBA all star game anthem that is the one song I have played at a party and people weren't immediately sure what it was, but they were down man it took like maybe ten seconds you realize wait a minute this is the star spangled better I-. Marvins version of the anthem shows you. that. You know. I will culture and tradition to make lemonade. You. Could take something and you could filter it through the black. Experience. And what comes out on other side is just as soulful and is refreshing and as completely dope as anything.

Sports Strike Against Racism
"This summer athletes have taken the lead by using their platforms to stand up against police brutality. The WNBA, has consistently protested throughout the year with numerous players even sitting the season out and on August twenty, six, twenty, twenty, four years after Colin Kaepernick began his anthem protests something historic happened athletes across the board streit and refuse to play today we're discussing reactions to this incredible moment in sports. This is the not. On August Twenty Third Jacob Blake was shot seven times in the back by police in Kenosha Wisconsin where we're calling this episode on. August twenty seven twenty twenty the day after the Milwaukee Bucks and players from the NBA WNBA NFL. Major League Baseball Major League soccer and tennis champion Naomi Osaka all refused to play or practice in an unprecedented strike in response to the shooting of Jacob Blake the NBA postponed the playoffs for two days. The first time that games have been postponed in this manner since Bill Russell led a strike in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, one after a day of deliberation players in the. NBA. Playoff Games pending further action. You're excited I. Know You're excited for sports to return obviously, this season has been one of a kind and unprecedented in. So many ways I want to know how do you feel now the players are using their platform in this way to be honest I feel this very strange sense of excitement. I need some really tragic kind of set of circumstances but I have been feeling conflicted after NBA Games kind. Came back I had been motivated by occurrences like kyrie irving standing in solidarity with Wnba players saying like Oh actually, I'll pay your salary. If you don't feel like you can play whether it's you know a reaction to corona virus or your desire to protest how support seeing. Lebron Kinda start almost every post game interview with a demand to arrest the cops that killed Brianna. Taylor. That made me really happy Siamese. Floor of the same energy that we have tours. Justice for Briana told, even seeing black lives matter on jerseys and in the court kind of made me feel a little better. I realized yesterday that this was the inspiration really been waiting for but now I'm wondering what comes next of course, how were you reacting to everything? You know I'm not like the world's biggest sports fan I do. I am a fan of black women and so seeing the WNBA protests. Throughout this year, but especially, the summer that felt released significant. Still I've always hesitant to look to athletes during these like highly political moments just because it's not the job that they set out to do. But you know as I started to see people sharing statements aerial Atkins from the Washington mystics we're going to say, well, we need to say and people need to hear that. They don't support us I'm fine with that. At the end of the day I'm GonNa make them good anywhere that I have to it basketball. It's not. Just what it is Chris Weber's telecast if not now when Not doing a pandemic. and. Countless lives being lost if not now when that is me in tears so lucid in that moment and so real and also just seeing how so many other sports leagues join them in protests were. Teased. Happen I mean it just shows. The hate people's heart. The thing is though is that as we were starting to develop this episode today so much has changed already in that the players in the NBA have agreed to return to playing the playoff season. Later, this week I don't think that all the progress is gone but I'm wondering what what happens. Now you know thought that same whiplash like I said, I felt like this was finally the type of inspiration leadership that I've been hoping to see from such a wide body players. Leaks, cross-border. It was truly abused beautiful, and I think now we need to do more I'm hoping that that since this is now on the table, players can put more pressure on owners to. Work with the people they are most connected to some of the richest and most powerful people in this nation are in the speed dial of most NBA owners even just the day if feels effective part of I, think resuming the season was the players putting pressure on the NBA to address the social unrest we've been dealing with all summer in some ways. So they started a foundation that's dedicated to investing in black causes. They're giving hundreds of millions of dollars they've given like you know the players, some approved protest phrases that they can use. They can put black lives matter on the courts and things like that and what I liked about this moment is at the NBA players were like that's what I usually do. And that's actually still not enough. So I'm hoping that we can see continued forward motion in that way something that I enjoy in this moment was seeing the NBA take the WNBA's league they have been holding it down all your curves pressing in. So many ways the thing is, is that WNBA, players, they don't make as much money as NBA players do they have really put their necks out there for social justice speaking up. Protecting black lives in many ways, it seems in some ways that they have more to lose by doing it. You know I am maybe two degrees below cautiously optimistic. That is a lot better than cynical, which is where I was before.
NBA, Pro Sports Teams Call Off Games After Jacob Blake Shooting
"Aw. It's been four years in San Francisco. Forty Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick first to Caen in response to police violence against black people me ultimately is to bring awareness and make people know realize what's really going on in this country. There are a lot of things that are going on their unjust people aren't being held accountable for, and that's something that needs to change that message from two thousand sixteen resonated last night across the professional sports world when players from the. NBA WNBA Major League Baseball Major League soccer professional tennis, and more decided against playing games in response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin Stars including Lebron James Naomi Osaka, mookie Betts Elizabeth Williams, and others released statements denouncing the shooting and talking about their decision not to take part in Games.

The Racial Justice Reckoning Over Sports Team Names Is Spreading
"Trump Trump weighed weighed in in this this week week on on the the Washington Washington NFL NFL team team and and the the Cleveland Cleveland Indians Indians baseball baseball team. team. Considering Considering changing changing their their names, names, names that native Americans have long said are racist. Both franchises announced they're reviewing their names and changes maybe coming before. 2020 NFL and Major League Baseball season's begin perspectives producer ABC is Eric Mollo has more with America In the midst of a reckoning over racial inequality. More athletes are continuing to speak out across the sports world. By noon, Stanford was right. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Cuyler Murray announcing he'll be taking any during the playing of the national anthem this year, one of several players pledging to stand in solidarity with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who knelt during the playing of the national anthem to protest police brutality and social injustice. Erica. Over the past week, There's been another reckoning in sports, whether to change team names or logos that contain Native American emblems. In stereotypes. There is time to Move for Major League Baseball's Cleveland Indians announced they're considering changing the team's name manager Terry Francona feels now is an appropriate time for change Older. We're never trying to be disrespectful. I still feel that way, but I don't think that's a good enough answer. Today. The announcement comes a little over a year after Cleveland removed its chief Wahoo logo, a cartoonish caricature of a native American man long considered racist. It also came shortly after the announcement at Washington's NFL franchises weighing whether to change its team name, which is widely regarded as a racial slur. Julian Brave Noise Cat contributes to ESPN is the undefeated He writes that the team name references Native American skin color. In the bloody scouts of indigenous People taken his bounty by white colonists. If a group of people are speaking out about the racism of a team logo, it's It's quite the thing to go and claim that actually know you are honoring them, and it's hard for me to imagine the same thing happening for another racial group in the United States. Team owner Dan Snyder has bound for years. He never changed the name. Saying the term actually embodies honor, respect and pride. Protesters and advocacy groups have called for change for decades. But on ly in the face of mounting economic pressure did Snyder finally announced they're reconsidering investors with major sponsors from Pepsi. FedEx in Nike sent letters asking the companies to terminate their relationship with Washington unless it agreed to a name change, which you know kind of exciting on the one hand, but the reality it reveals about the power of capital. In our culture and society is a little bit of a downer for me. But those two franchises don't stand alone. A world without native mascots is the ideal world. Nick Marin is a member of this a pony tribe in a staff writer for the New Republic any kind of imagery like that and specifically as it relates to native people, because we have been made invisible, forcibly the idea that we would You get rid of the walking Jim NFL team and keep the Kansas City Chiefs It speaks a certain hollowness that I think this kind of corporate social justice campaigns often involve the Kansas City Chiefs. Atlanta Braves in Chicago Blackhawks are among professional franchises that continue to employ Native American imagery on their jerseys in their team names and in cheers by fans has become a very normalized thing, which I think is common place with a lot of systems and forms of institution. Oppression. These things we don't think of them in the moment as being particularly egregious because they've become so normalized in society. Those franchises aren't following the lead of Washington in Cleveland. None of them announce name changes, though Atlanta is reportedly considering no longer allowing the Tomahawk chop chance at games, and the Blackhawks went on to say that their team name and logo symbolizes an important native American figure. And they aren't moving toward formal change. It reduces you to a caricature there, 570 plus tribal nations. That's 570 plus tribal cultures. Any kind of idea that, like there is one kind of Indian is very reductionist kind of view of US. President Trump even weighed in this week via Twitter, saying the names of Washington's in Cleveland's teams Signify strength and not weakness, and they're merely considering the change to be politically correct. The president's statement in the very decisions of these franchises do raise questions isn't important to distinguish between the offensiveness of each individual team name, and is any of this iconography, actually honor or respect the Native Americans? Or in same team names and logos on our native people. Is that merely perpetuating cultural appropriation and the use of stereotypical Native American imagery, Martin says. It's not that slippery of a slope. If you're saying our mascot, our team name is not as racist as Washington NFL team still an admission that it is races, Washington's head coach, Ron Rivera, who is one of four minority head coaches in the NFL, told The Washington Post. It would be awesome if the team changed its name. In the National Congress of American Indians have long opposed the use of Native American stereotypical imagery in professional sports. As professional sports franchises are choosing to reexamine these issues in the midst of America's reckoning over race relations, they're faced with a new choice. Well, economic pressures determine if they choose to rename their teams or will they listen to decades long calls from Native American advocacy groups to eliminate the use of these emblems of the only reasons happening so swiftly is because their this is something that native people years of ground Work into and so what this moment kind of larger cultural reckoning has become. It's just kind of an impetus to say Okay, Now is the time to finally get rid of these things.
Trump targets Bubba Wallace while criticizing NASCAR Confederate flag ban
"NASCAR the National Football League Major League baseball now? Trying to figure out how to deal with the latest tweets from President Donald Trump. It was a day ago that he questioned the validity of the bubble Wallace story and wanted Bubble Wallace to apologize for the NASCAR hoax of the noose in his garage, saying that that in the flag situation banning the Confederate flag resulted in low ratings for NASCAR, he went on to talk about How the Indians and Redskins nicknames, which were initially made to show strength should stay nicknames. He went on to reference Elizabeth Warren and you know, and we're off to the races. You know, Doug with this last these tweets the last 24 hours or so when you and I talked about this yesterday, we said, Listen, the best thing to do. Is to ignore this and just move on, because the NFL if they could do it over again from 2017 they certainly would say You know what? We're not going to just start getting scattered because President Trump was tweeting about kneeling football players and Colin Kaepernick. The best thing to do would be to ignore it, because, as we've said, Look, there's political stuff. And this is something that you can't win right and notice. The difference in the responses so far is that when this happened Redskins you know the NFL. Really No one really said anything. You know, it's like we've done this before we've been through this. Roger Goodell put the moment of unity out there, saying that we blew it last time. Let's go forward together. And NASCAR had a bunch of drivers who responded to this because this is something brand new for them and that you know, and we talked about saying, Hey, you know, be ahead of things and just move on. Because you can't win this battle that that's going to go on. If you can continually to engage this.

Nike Pulls Gear for the Washington Redskins Amid Calls to Change Name
"Gear from their store. Because it's offensive, but over the weekend how many people are offended by what Colin Kaepernick said. Colin Kaepernick over the weekend said that fourth of July is a white supremacist holiday. Now. There is a difference between a lot of the athletes right now that are standing up and talking about racism and what needs to be done. And what Colin Kaepernick did. I think Colin Kaepernick is a capitalist. I think he's selfish. I think it wasn't so much that he protested by kneeling. It was wearing the pig socks with cops. Pigs dressed as police officers to practice And now all of a sudden, in years past go look at his Twitter account. Go look at what's on Twitter about Colin Kaepernick and years passed wishing people happy Fourth of July all of a sudden issue. He's had an epiphany. And so Nike isn't pulling anything by Colin Kaepernick down because it's defending someone like me by calling it a white supremacist holiday, But they pulled the Redskins gear so it's arbitrary over what's really offensive and what isn't These are the arguments that we get caught up in instead of the really conversations about howto fix re Elish use And it's sad. It's absolutely sad.

"And Fox sports radio producer. He will join us for that. If you missed the first hour of the show we did talk about. Athletes and their voices, and using their platform to voice things Brian. We know what's going on in Minneapolis, George Floyd the death. What a spark riots and And all of the. Stuff that we're dealing with currently and you know they've been stuff all over the country, different cities of broken out in riots and looting and fires and destroys destruction of police, property and cars. People frustrated mad about what's happened. and. I know a of people think. I don't want my athlete I. Just want him to play ball. I just wanted to hit home runs for me I. Want them to run the football. I just wanted to score twenty two points. And that's all I want for my athletes. I just don't think it's that simple. And I think when people say that. Even like the NFL. People say ell. It's only about four Paul early about football here. Brian No, can I remind you of a circumstance and I want you to tell me if it's Paul. or about social issues okay Okay Yep, in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand, nine, hundred eighty nfl took away the super bowl from the state of Arizona. Do you remember that Brian Yeah? And the reason they took away the super bowl and told Arizona that it wouldn't never get another super bowl. If they did not have the Martin. Luther King Holiday as a paid holiday. Do you remember that? Yeah, I do? Remember that was that football? Brian was `social. That was definitely not football it's. Wanting -ocial so the NFL win after even though the people of Arizona voted not for it to be. A paid holiday. Despite it being a national holiday, right? They decided that it wasn't. And the NFL when against the vote of the people of that state. And threatened them without a super bowl. Guess what happened, Brian No. Things Change Real quick! Wow, the next time. who was on the ballot I guess he got changed, and then they got the super bowl back. What a shocker! And my point bringing up that story is there is a moral obligation sometimes from people who have a platform who can help. Change. Wrong to right. Out of what the athletes go stumping for every. Politician and every Senate, race and every. The. Any any kind of a situation where where it's. Pitting candidates against each other. But in big moments where things can be changed, and you could have a positive impact on people. I salute those people. Yeah, that's that's why I have more respect. For Colin capper today than ever before four years ago. He was willing to give up his fame his fortune, his job and career, and the NFL to say what was going on was not right, and he could sit silent. Brian most people can't do that. Most people aren't leaders enough. Most people can't keep can't sacrifice especially for people that they have no connection to Colin Kaepernick did not those victims, those unarmed black men who were being killed by police? He did it because he thought it wasn't right. and. He wanted to bring attention to it in a peaceful way. All the people who condemned to were wrong. You know why. Four years later. We saw the death the murder of George Floyd. The same thing Colin Kaepernick was protesting about. Indeed athletes who have a platform. And can help cause change in a positive way. Should use that platform I. Hear you man and really think about it this way to. If you look at a guy like Joe. Borough number one overall pick in the NFL draft. If, he's speaking out and saying the black community needs us right now, right? I don't know how you don't have any opinion whatsoever as a prominent black athlete. When it comes to a situation like George Floyd being killed right like the way you set this up initially, if a media member sticks a mic in front of a player's face, and says hey, what do you think about? The the situation with George Floyd. If that person says you know what I just want to keep it about football, right like that's just never going to land well. You don't have to be an activist to the nth degree in. Ten lives is there's nothing but activism. It doesn't have to go to the nth degree like that, but if difficult, if there are white athletes like J. J. Watt Joe Bro Speaking Out I. Think is a prominent black athlete. He would least have to offer your two cents instead of saying hey too hot button. I can't touch that it goes way than just football and you know what you just said it like. Hot Pardon you just saw a guy murdered by the police or Armed. In handcuffs it comes pin. Yeah, what? What? What? What? What is controversial? What can't you speak on? Brian, tell me. You saw that in. Oh, I can't talk about that yet. But what? How could you not have an opinion on that? It was horrifying. Anybody who saw. How did you watch that? And not think it was horrifying. Yeah, and I think you can say that and have a reasonable stance and speak out against injustice and not tick off a ton of people right. If you say that was inhumane, it was incomprehensible what happened to George Floyd. That can't be the country that we live in. If that offends people I. Don't know what to tell you because that's the truth. You're offended by the truth at that stage. So if there's a prominent athlete that has a platform that says just that I don't know why you would. Say A little too hot I don't WanNa get near that. I just think that's wrong to do. So and Brian said this my whole life. The, only people worse. Than the people, committing crimes and hurting people and killing and maiming and Robin all that. All the good people who know right from wrong who turned the other way? And and don't do anything about. Yeah. Those, are the people who how can you do it? How can you allow yourself to turn a blind eye to it? Even if it's not happening to anybody, you know or your family Bryan that doesn't have to be your cousin or your uncle or your father there to have compassion for that man, does it? I wanted to pick your brain real. Quick Rob, because I think this is important. When you think about what happened to George, Floyd and for someone who isn't black to have an understanding of not only what that feels like, but also the aftermath we Ephraim from Salaam on the show, and he explained it. He's like I've got a couple of young boys I'm thinking. Could this be something that they encounter later in life right and he also brought up when you've got people with guns outside of. State buildings upset that they can't go out in public, but we don't have the same thing. After the George Floyd incident it sends the message that either people don't care enough or they flat out. Don't care at all, so. When it comes to those things as you receive it a member of your race, and it just seems like people either don't care or don't care enough. How does that make you feel and I think it's important for people that aren't black to understand what that feeling is like. No, no doubt about it This is just an important issue for a lot of people. And I I I think people have to I really. I don't understand. Bryan as as a black guy who's been stopped by the police. It's a terrifying experience because and I've told you this before Brian earlier in the show. I have cousins family member to New York City cops detectives law enforcement's in my family. My brother was in Atlanta Cop. He's an FBI agent. So this is not an anti cop. Thing, okay? 'cause I not a good cop state there in my family. But, there are bad cops to. And when you're on that, brody and there's nobody else there Bryan. And you get pulled over terrifying. I don't know what's going to happen. I don't. They don't have a masters degree from Columbia.

Do whatever he had to give up the money. Give up the fame up football. Whatever was to bring light to this here. It is forty years later. And the people who condemned him trying to tell them when you suppose the protests and how you supposed to protest. This was what he was talking about. It hasn't stopped. Where is the NFL now? We're both people. Who thought that Cowan Copper, Colin Kaepernick was being American. Yes, right I see. This is what I'm talking about. All the people who said he shouldn't project like that right? Why those? Nothing to do with the sports yeah. This is the reason. He's protesting on that stage because this has been an epidemic in this country for us. For. Decades upon decades, and that is the problem. If Colin Kaepernick doesn't sacrifice his career to bring awareness, it doesn't stink as much as it does today. Point Hoping. That's exactly the point, so I've always said look. You can't tell a person how to. Right right, you can't say Oh, do it a different way because protests is supposed to make you uncomfortable to sign a light on something that needs to be addressed, it's like. When you when you blocked the fall five. Were you get their attention? Will people figure out what's going on here? What's how? Oh yes.

Killings of unarmed African Americans over the past two years. If those penalties for those officers were headed down, and they were served Veer Yup. This would change the mentality.

Gawkers coming back from the dead sort of care plans to bring back a controversial website and these plans are questionable at best, but I, I'll. Apper Nick Knight. Definitely not our pension. We're going to talk about bonzes to the ad. We're going to talk about that. So we're going to figure out what it all. Nike recently made the civil rights activists and NFL player. I should say inactive NFL player Colin Kaepernick the face of it's just do it campaign just do it is the conic Nike tagline conic Nike campaign. And this year happens to be the thirtieth anniversary of just do it campaign. So the tagline for happenings, believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything at the tagline. An image ad in the video at the TV commercial that copper Nick stars in and a lot of people around up a lot of people who I mean, first of all, I should say the ad is encouraging to a lot of people who stand with cabinet in who stood with him throughout his police brutality protests, kneeling during the national anthem at NFL games. You know, it's, it's encouraged a lot of people. It's also irritated. A lot of people who wished that Colin Kaepernick would just shut up in play football or not even play football at this point needs in and you basically have a lot of conservatives across the country setting their Nike apparel on fire and. A guy who set his shoes on fire while marrying was not a good why he didn't just I should say shutout to that one guy who said his shoes on fire while wearing them and then did in fact share images of his feet at hospital skin peeled off in jarred. So that's where we're at right now. Makinen Colin Kaepernick and the protests and it's it's sort of getting out of control. Now the, there's a mayor in Louisiana who banned Nike heat Unilab read on this story a little bit. I know that he banned local facilities from buying Nike equipment because he was angry about the ad. Right? I do believe there is also a store in Denver that sort of decided to sell its Nike equipment at a discount because they were mad about that. There's been a lot of get on clearance sales. There's a lot of really weird protests of of the at. Right? And this is all because copper Nic, you know, is the figurehead for these the the protests that NFL games during the national anthem of players, kneeling as a statement about police brutality right says this, this iconic posts black lives matter form of. Tests. So why people are letting their shoes on fire. I don't really functionally have trouble understanding with this. I should say, sports fans have done this before, and then in more trivial contest. Remember they burn bronze, jersey NFL, like people accidentally set themselves on fire during that. But that was like a less political. I'm not gonna lie to you. I distinctly remember during like the bulls dynasty in the nineties. My mom got all these like Seattle SuperSonics apparel, and we stuff we like built an SuperSonics effigy and lit it on fire that had nothing to do with politics. We just hated the sandals. So why people have definitely been burning athletic equipment for dubious reasons for a long time, like I can personally attest to that. While burning it to oppose a protest. Movement against police brutality is certainly a height of burning athletic apparel Coulter. I think those people are gonna have to replace their Nike humanity. Yes, but it it, you know, coincidentally Nikki's online sales, at least sales in their web store up like thirty one percent since they unveiled the ad with cabernet, we'll unveiled the whole campaign happening, but meanwhile have is seemingly blacklisted by the NFL. That's sort of what makes this complicated to me rate is tapper. Nick is out of work basically. And so Nike has come along and said, well, you know, we gotta just do it campaign. We gotta run. You can be the star of that, and we're obviously going to pay pay millions of dollars to be the starring role in this. This advertisement campaign. And so in a way it's like tap has..

So I showed up. The topic was list building. We broke off into small groups, did more of a typical mastermind in those small groups met a lot of great people there. And something that I heard from more than a few of them was that they were worried about saying something bold. I think one of the reasons for that could have been just the age of this thing. A lot of people in their twenties in their thirties. I'm forty five years old. Second. Oldest person there. This was a younger crowd, but still even if you're in your forties and fifties and your sixty seventies, this is something that follows people around, and if you don't start getting used to it now where you are right now in your life is not likely to change, you have to make change the way that this presents itself is that you think something and your frayed you're going to get a reaction that's not going to be positive.

"I got all that. That's all happened and we completely. And I'm trying to just saying for him to give any quarter to Colin Kaepernick here shows that I think Colin is winning words or whatever, whatever. I'm just saying that we haven't ever gotten any kind of moderate statement like that from him whatsoever. Skew on this issue. Have we the mecha- question if I tell you I'm gonna do something for you, and I never do it. What? What? What? What? What? What good. On my words, why did the NFL issue that that's, that's that's shocking. I'm surprised by how fitting why pay to him in a very positive light when they haven't done that. Normally, when you hear Colin Kaepernick is about the protests about the anthem is about the military, nine ING. I will give you that Wallace winning, but here's the winning over Tom Brady. I don't know why would Tongo out of his way to like four things that are Nike connected. I don't know, maybe not. I mean, you're dug in on their side. I just don't. I just don't know how much to do from. Like I'm not political like you are. So I'm, I'm more I'm more from a distance about this and what hit me yesterday was g. this is kind of a moderate reaction as opposed to a visceral ugly anti rea- there is still that Al they're burning thing. Right, definitely. That's where I'm going there. Still some of that out there. They're still and you're going to get get. Everybody's gonna be happy, especially when you're fighting for something that you deem appropriate. They're always going to be pushed back because those that are impacted by this, what what's going on. Okay. Why would you wanna do that? And and so you're going to get the pushback from there. The surprising part for me of all this of the reaction is, like I said with what the NFL said, because we hadn't seen anything like different from them skip in this painting Colin Kaepernick and very. So I am. I'm happy that the league that I've represented fourteen years playing and not cover the league. Like to think I'm still a Representative of that league. I'm very proud because the collusion case hasn't even begun yet, really. That's why I'm even more surprised that they would even chime in on this maybe night. Maybe Nike being big sponsor of theirs get because look, the NFL has a lot of sponsors, but Nike is the only one that when you watch that team on the field, usually you see that logo? Yeah, Pizza Hut is official sponsor the NFL and people that logo on jersey, no decals on the helmet. So if this I mean how everybody's looking like, well, why would I do this? We gotta ten your deal. We know in Philly. What we know about the NFL's give ain't giving back no money, no, but it was also widely reported yesterday that Nike gave the NFL no heads up on any of this. So that was good news to me that, hey, they opt, they operated completely independently of the NFL and said, we are going to do this whether you like it or not. Because what would happen if. Didn't runabout NFL. What would have happened to you? Probably more times than not. They shot it now. Sure. But it shows you, they're not incoherence with the this isn't some clandestine partnership that they're trying to pull. We'll well, maybe this is why they did the deal in March and had this on this all along because I'm sure they've done run the marketing data. Okay. Started as you saying a mauling towards Colin Cami, because if you remember getting Nike will be one of the first official apparel outfitters the NFL. But what they were doing, they were doing independent deals, the NFL got upset when that was guess what they did, they gave the whole thing. Yeah. So the NFL doesn't take into you doing things without their permission, so, but they got ten years. 'cause you say this, this contract between Nike and the NFL run through twenty. Twenty eight? Yeah, they got another ten years. They good. So right away early yesterday morning, Nike stock to a hit and soda Dita's and soda, Puma. Although it was reported that they had gone to the bargaining table to try to sign calling also..

Actually, I'm wearing. You're wearing also wearing? No, that's a fake news. Actually. We live in a post Trump America where not everything is the way that it appears, and these are not actually easies with Swoosh on front of them because I don't want people think I'm super cool.

You know, there's this thing in economics and business called planned obsolescence offering to say paranoid. Obsolescence adolescence, obsolescence obsoleteness. They create their their objects that they break down so that you can buy more. So the thing like marriage. Well, you tell me. So my point is that like you don't go where the shoes just burn them and buy them. All right. When we didn't start the fire. Okay, I'll explain this. So Colin Kaepernick is the football player that would kneel during the national anthem. Right, right. So a lot of people in the middle of the country vary offended about that. People who have families that are veterans or whatever very offended about as well. Right. Some people are not not. Everyone is thinks the same. But then Nike decided to sponsor him which just lit the firestorm of all over again. So everyone who I'm sorry. Sorry about that guys. That's my way of kneeling during the national anthem a- sneezing on the podcast. So everyone was upset about it and people forgot about it, and then Nike decided to sponsor him. So it just looked the whole firestorm up again. So people responded to it by lighting, all of their Nike gear on fire as a way of protesting company for sponsor here. I mean, I just want people to get more creative iron, how to destroy their stuff, you know, like, yeah, it's always a fire, isn't it? Yeah. When are we going to drown our Nike's? Exactly right, or throw them in one of those. Like, you know, there's a YouTube account where it's like, Kim, we shit, yes, smush it Bush or like put him in the washer and put them in the dryer. Yeah, put him in the dryer and then push the dryer down a cliff. I've been destroying my Nikes by just wearing them every day for the last year..
"colin kaepernick" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Did it took about two days and I was wrong on that one. Where Colin was. Right. Okay. Forget Colin Kaepernick gear. I'm gonna buy Malcolm Jenkins gear for the eagles. He's become my favorite player. I said last week, Malcolm Jenkins came out and said this whole thing in our locker room. This this like a banner on our locker room is stupid. We won the Super Bowl. We got win, and again this year, that doesn't mean anything. And I said, I love Malcolm Jenkins. That's how winners think winner celebrate rarely and grind daily and Malcolm Jenkins by coming out as a leader in saying, I hate this stupid banner. Doug Peterson, took it down. I am buying Malcolm Jenkins shoes if they're on the market. That's what leadership is leadership is not like. Due side, big pliant pod. Say leadership is a signed a big client, the accounting firm, everybody going to be here at five, forty five in the morning, ready to work tomorrow because that trophy is not doing your prep tomorrow morning. Malcolm Jenkins is a real leader. I liked him during the anthem protests. I didn't think he was divisive. I thought he was grown up and I love him calling out his organization and they're smart enough and build Elvia to go. You know what Malcolm jangled is right, where Colin was raw Odell Beckham junior, got a massive deal with the giants. I'm surprised a, he's a perimeter player. But here's what really surprises me. He's fragile physically, and sometimes he's fragile emotionally, and I've always struggled pan guys. If physically and emotionally, I'm not sure what I get, but Bucky Brooks guy respect told me last week on the show. He's were six points to me. Odal Beckham's were six Advil for all the headaches all have with him. But in the end, if he's worth six points than I admit, I was wrong. Odell Beckham is worth the dollars and the New York Giants. I thought they figure out a way not to Pam figured out a way to pay him where Colin was right finally said last week, once Sam darnold proves he's good enough to start. You gotta move teddy Bridgewater. There's the jets don't need the best backup quarterback in the league, what they need help in about a day later, the jets traded teddy Bridgewater is that once you could see that darnold was ready to play again, I'm not saying he's better than teddy Bridgewater today, but he's good enough to start in the NF. Fell. Sam darnold would start for about ten teams in the NFL including the jets. Okay. He's not starting for land is desktop for New Orleans. He's not start for Carolina, but he's got enough start for the jets. Then you've got to trade teddy Bridgewater. There's no value in saying, you know, we got the best quarterback threesome in the league. I mean, we got three guys who could win. Darnold can win without defense, Josh mccown, going with that defense, get a draft pick and start rebuilding that offensive line. We're calling was right. We're calling was wrong. And with that, I think actually Joel Klatten I have been defending Jim Harbaugh, but tough one today for me. Let's see how Joel Klatt response to that. Well, you said, are you doing. You said he has to beat Notre Dame? Yeah. Well, isn't Well isn't it. when you're in this business. Sometimes you're going to take some lumps and we're taking lumps today taking lumps. One hundred percent. I'm right there with you. It was ugly. It was ugly, and and the frustrating part for those of us who have been watching his teams for a long time is that they didn't have an identity on offense. Normally, that's one thing that you would hang your hat on is that they had an identity on offense. And generally it was surrounding quality, offensive line play, and maybe not even just quality, offensive line, but dominant offensive line play. In particular in the run game, you gave the stat a little bit earlier in your where you were wrong. One point, seven, six at one point, eight yards per carry. That's terrible. Terrible. In fact, only one other power, five school average less yards per carry last week. Oh my God. I know who it was, who Louisville against Alabama..
"colin kaepernick" Discussed on Build A Big Podcast - Marketing Podcast For Podcasters
"Talk about this Nike ad campaign with Colin Kaepernick. It's a black and white close up of his face. The bottom of the ad says, believe in something even if it means sacrificing everything. Lots of talk online about this. Lots of talking newspapers, television, radio, mostly people taking one side of the argument or the other. I want to talk about how it relates to your podcast. We'll give you similarly the situation to bring you up to speed. The headline from article I just found on CNBC says, nyc shares fall as backlash erupts over new ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick here the bullet points. Next shares fall Tuesday after company revealed in new ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick the news of capper Nick becoming the face of Nike's marketing campaigns, sparks some backlash from consumers on social media. And the reason for that is in two thousand sixteen, he decided not to stand for the national anthem to protest. Racial injustice, hashtag Nike boycott is trended on Twitter with some people saying they were going to burn their Nike sneakers. Now, what does this have to do with podcasting? Let's look back to that. Initial protests. He decided not to stand for the national anthem to protest racial injustice. That's my understanding of why he did that. That's what he has said. Yet. People wanna make it something different. It's about the flag. It's about disrespecting veterans. You've heard those arguments that's big lesson. Number one people are going to miss understand your message. You can be crystal clear about it. You can spell it out. You can put it in writing. You can say, this is what I'm trying to do. People are gonna put their own spin on it. Knowing this you've got three options. You can put the message out anyway, speak your truth. You can soften the message, try to make it a little bit more palatable, so it doesn't have that kind of backlash, three don't say anything. That's what most people do. Everybody's got an opinion. They lived a spouted on social media. They love to remain anonymous, talk about it in their homes. But when it comes to a podcast, how many people are actually saying anything, not many. Big, listen, number two do not. She's in that first option. Speak your truth. What's the point? What's the point? Let's say you've got a religious broadcast a Christian podcast. You're Christian, you believe in Jesus. Are you going to say you believe in Jesus? Are you gonna talk about a higher power, soften that message, make it a little bit more palatable. Bring people in who may be are offended by Jesus. What are you going to do? Higher power is not going to connect Christians and if you're Christian, that's not your belief anyway. Now I could give you a million examples of this, but I'm not here to give you examples. I'm here to have you think about your message. What is your message? I'm here to let you know that it is okay for you to repel people. That's big lesson number three here just as many people love Nike today as eight them maybe more. When some people saw that ad. This man, Nike gets me, Nike gets what this guy's trying to do. He gets how I feel and they love Nike even more. Was it risky? Hell? Yeah, it was risky. Anything worth doing is risky. You're gonna put your voice to a podcast, put it out into the world. Once it's out, it's out. You don't know who's going to hear it. Maybe some people going to hear it that you don't want to hear. That's a risk. Some people are going to disagree with you. Some people are going to leave you bad reviews. Some people are going to send you a non emails. It happens even at a small level, your podcast go into podcasting, Facebook group, people get into arguments over the dumbest things. Now that Mike sucks. Don't use that. Mike. It sucks. Who cares? The right? Mike is the one that you got in front of you the right Mike is the one that enables you get your podcast out, who cares about microphones you people get into arguments about them. So imagine when he gets into something important, something that really matters, big social issue, something like injustice, police brutality, health care war people are opinionated about those things. And if you talk about any of those things, you're going to get backlash that Christian podcast that I mentioned. I see this happen all the time with Christian authors. They are in a hard place. You think you got a bad magin being a Christian author get Christians on top of Christians. Now it's not Jesus enough. He didn't praise God in the way I wanna praise God. You got the eighth yeast in there. This is to Christian too much Jesus. You can't please anybody. You got to please yourself. You fly your flag. That's what Nike's doing. We'll pay off. We'll see too early to tell today, their stock dropped a little bit, but now he's been around for a long time. Thirty years of the just do a campaign that's his call and cabinet campaign is about. He's not the only athlete involved in this new campaign. Just the guy getting the most press right now from a business standpoint, I think it was brilliant. What did indeed is due today? It's too late for them to make a bold move like this. They look like followers same thing for your podcast or you're going to lead or are you going to follow? We all want listeners. We all want the people to love what we have to say before people want to lead do you. You need to act like it. That means taking. Stand. Are you gonna repel some people? Yes. Hell, yes, you're going to repel some people, but some people are going to love you even more the Nike Swoosh it means something different today. And while there are few people that are burning their Nike stuff, making a big deal about it. There are other people that are going out to the mall to stores like Amazon by Nike stuff, and they're going to wear it in a totally different way. This is a long game just like your long game. We're not going to be thinking about the stock dropping for a couple of days if you years from. Now, we're going to be thinking about who took a stand on this issue and maybe they lost money, but it's a big company they can afford to lose money. You can afford to lose a few listeners by speaking your truth and keeping the listeners that are really into you and making them true fans speak your truth and focus on those people.
"colin kaepernick" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"There is a little bit of butterfly effect here to Colin Kaepernick. He his girlfriend who. Was in northern California if he takes the job with the Denver Broncos and he wins the job as their starting quarterback and whatever you think of Denver and legalization in Colorado of marijuana and what an inverse different than suburban Denver's very conservative in John Elway is super-conservative. I believe he wrote support for for the president on Denver, Broncos stationery, right. So there's probably a little bit of hint of that, but but my thing with the butterfly effect is you do wonder if capper Nick would have taken. The stance would have been power to take the stance if they would have shut it down, they would talk with him early or even he would have been as politically active if he was out of northern California and playing for the Denver Broncos fighting for a starting job. Right? You have no idea. And if that he had not taken any reporter hadn't asked him a question about taking any, where would it be? There's a certain interest in like the whole butterfly effect to it is fascinating to me. Totally. I mean, who am I to say this? But I feel like he is found. This other calling in his life. I mean, I'm sure he wants to be back playing NFL. There's no doubt about that, but he's the voice of so many. He's standing up for so many people right now and. Actually that's more doesn't. Actually. He doesn't actually say I'm not disputing the level of importance that somebody in have he's found another calling in his life. Maybe it wasn't always to be an NFL player, but it's supposed to be, you know, a social Justice warrior, whatever you wanna call it. Right. I just I do think that one thing that that that Elway touches on but doesn't go all in on his. There's more than just the protests people forget that one of the reasons he lost his job when he's with the Niners was he had the headphones on, and he was not seen to be a leader that guys liked there was the struggles in evolving as a quarterback. There was the fact that he knew he was going to get cut by the Niners because salary and he was offered a parachute, albeit with less money with the Denver Broncos there are there are other things can ask you one thing, though, horse. Do you think that if the kneeling didn't happen, the protests didn't happen that he would still not be laying in the NFL. Because I think that well, well, hold on. There's the assumption. We talked about this little yesterday where people think that backup quarterbacks are simply he's better than backup quarterbacks. And that's why he should be playing STAN. Actually, the way it works. A backup quarterback. One usually usually is a lesser version, like a pocket version of the starting quarterback. Right. So you don't wanna have to dramatically change the system. He's not like most guys. On the other hand, you could see him replacing Shawn Watson numbers as his backup other athletic quarterbacks, but but he's never. His mindset has never been to accept where how the market sees him. He doesn't see himself as a backup. The Seattle Seahawks brought him in last year. Instead, he sees himself as a starter and we see him as the starter to. We just don't need a starting quarterback. Like I don't think his mindset matches the salary matches what the job actually entails. If you're a sales manager, like I'm a salesman like now this is for a salesman job. It's. It's different. He gotta get out there and get the connection. So I don't think people forget his. The peak of of cabinet was two thousand thirteen. He's had multiple surgeries. He's not the same player. This is part of it. I'm not disputing that. This is part of why he's not in league, but there are other factors could have done himself some favors by maybe not fighting for that starting role. Which one with Seattle Seahawks or with Denver, he's not going to beat you're coming into Seattle. You're not going to be starting corporate that Russell Wilson's want to start with. He's a starter period stop. So I would guess that in the conversation that he had, he didn't get off the plane. Go like, listen, I'm here for one reason and one reason only to make Russell Wilson better. That's that's my job. Yeah. And that's not only. And you're talking about this yesterday too..
