Kenner Mayor Ben Zahn rescinded his ban on Nike products Wednesday afternoon. Last week, Zahn told the city’s Parks and Recreation department and booster clubs to stop buying from the company after Nike launched an ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick, the former NFL quarterback who started a movement of player protests against police brutality and racial injustice.
