Colin Kaepernick has become the face of Nike’s “Just Do It” ad campaign as the company celebrates the 30th anniversary of the slogan, Kim Bell of GWOP Magazine reports.
Why it matters: Kaepernick is one of the most polarizing figures in sports. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has not played in the NFL since 2016, and is currently suing league owners for blackballing him because of his protests against racial inequality in the United States.
Los Angeles (CNN) — Rodney King, whose beating by Los Angeles police in 1991 was caught on camera and sparked riots after the acquittal of the four officers involved, was found dead in his swimming pool Sunday, authorities and his fiancee confirmed. He was 47.
Police in Rialto, California, received a 911 call from King’s fiancee, Cynthia Kelly, about 5:25 a.m., said Capt. Randy DeAnda. Responding officers found King at the bottom of the pool, removed him and attempted to revive him. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital, DeAnda said.
