Do something that matters

Jason Whitlock, now part of Outkick with Clay Travis, offers some ideas for the athletes trying to change the world.
Change Nike.
Despite being from blue-collar Akron, LeBron James has been pampered since he was 12 years old. He can’t speak for the black factory workers who frequented the Masterpiece Lounge, the bar my dad owned the last 25 years of his life. Neither can Colin Kaepernick. He barely speaks for himself let alone for manufacturing workers of any race.
What LeBron and Kap can do, if they want to use their voice and platforms in a meaningful way, is demand that Nike build manufacturing plants in Akron and Oakland. 
 Will they listen?
