Former NFL player tells Nike a shoe design could be offensive

Nike may have dodged a bullet as it recalls a shoe before being released due to potential racism. The red sneaker was supposed to celebrate Independence Day with the Betsy Ross flag on the back.

Former NFL Quarterback Colin Kaepernick said it could be considered racist since slavery was legal during that time.
