Ad About Racism – level 2

05-06-2020 15:00

People in the US are protesting against police brutality and racism, and companies react to it too. On Friday, the company Nike posted an ad on social media.

The ad changed the company’s famous slogan ’Just Do It’. The ad said ’For Once, Don’t Do It.’ The idea is to urge people to fight against racism and police brutality in the US. It is important that people do not keep quiet, and that they say openly what they think.

Another company, Adidas, supported Nike on social media. Adidas said that only together people can make a change.

Some people criticized Nike in the past because the company supported a sportsman who protested against police brutality.

Difficult words: brutality (when someone behaves very badly and violently, and he hurts another person very much), ad (an advertisement that promotes a company’s product or service), urge (to try hard to make someone do something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
