I TOTALLY SUPPORT NIKE AND COLIN KAPERNIK IN HIS RIGHT TO PROTEST AND YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE HIM ON YOUR TEAM. ...I AM WHITE SO NO ONE CAN SAY IRES BECAUSE I'M BLACK THAT I SUPPORT COLIN...I THINK WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THIS COUNTRY WITH CONSERVATIVE MINDED PEOPLE IS A SHAME AND FREEDOM COMES IN MANY FORMS AND BEING FREE TO KNEEL ID'S A FREEDOM. SHAME ON THE PEOPLE WHO THINK OTHERWISE. ...I SURE WOULDN'T WANT TO BE A BLACK PERSON IN ANY COUNTRY THE WAY THEY ARE DEMONIZED AND TREATED
I doubt Beyonc, Jay-Z, and all the way-too-rich black athletes who are treated like gods would agree with you. Stop making excuses for people, black or not, who do not obey the law. Dear Betty, you haven't got a clue what you are talking about. If you think kneeling during our anthem is a good thing, I suggest you move to another country.
Dear Betty: Your post indicates that you are someone who does not appreciate that the stock market is higher than ever before and someone who wants more people to be out of jobs. Are you blind or just ignorant? Can you not admit that the economy is the best ever and that the unemployment rate is at the lowest rate in history? So what is the exact problem with conservative minded people? You point to nothing except tired old rhetoric. It is people like you and the Obama and Hillary the liar lovers who damaged this country and increased worldwide terrorism. Those were leftist thinkers for you. I will take the conservative route any day.
Betty has nothing better to do than to write mindless garble IN ALL CAPITALS TO TRY TO GET HER WORTHLESS POINT ACROSS.
Hey Betty, didn't you hear that the unemployment rate among black people has hit an all-time low? Yeah, sounds like they are being demonized more than ever. Not! To answer Lisa's question below, it is my opinion that you, Betty, are BOTH blind and ignorant!
I really like all of your products, and I love the fact that your company has chosen to stand with Kapernik.
We here in Chicago have started a program called The Knox Project to create change among law enforcement and minorities. We help officers recognize and hopefully remove any biases, as well as educate minority teens and young adults on the proper way to interact with law enforcement. Please consider supporting our program, we can use your financial support.
Dear Founder: Sounds like a good project. As an attorney I would consider supporting except for the fact that it is not a good idea to support someone who wears socks depicting policemen as pigs. How does that help the relationship between minorities and police? Sounds like one of those biases you purport to want to eliminate. If you and your group support that, I want no part of it. There are better role models to have than a racist, washed-up, mediocre football player who denigrates the men and women who try to protect us. Get your priorities straight.
I want you to know just like many other people I am done purchasing anything that Nike makes. Making Colin Kaepernick a millionaire by making him the face of Nike you alienated half of the people that buy your products. We would always buy Nike shirts for our employees when we went to our conference, Not anymore. Employees, Children and Grandchildren will never get another Nike product from me. I wish companies and hollywood would stop putting their opinions out there. You should just concentrate on making the product the best it can be without your personal political opinions weighing in. We became a land of the free by our brave soldiers not by a washed up quarterback.
Shame on you Nike.
I totally agree with you Fed Up. To think Nike would glorify a loser like Kaepernick who wears socks depicting policemen as pigs is disgraceful. By doing so, they disrespect those like the brave deputy who just gave his life to save others at the bar in Thousand Oaks. I completely doubt that Kaepernick would have acted so bravely and honorably. He would have run the other way to save his own skin. I find both Nike and Kaepernick to be disgusting.
I was wondering when you would be taking Colin Capernick off your brand. My mother is protesting against Nike for putting him on the brand by not buying anything Nike related. I am trying to buy some Kyrie 4s and she wont let me because of this.
I agree with your mom Arthur. My 4 kids are angry too because I will not buy them anything Nike. They will thank me in the future when they realize why I am protesting a company that hates our country as much as Kaepernick does.
Nike you guys are very stupid and very disrespectful fat pigs who know body should support never again will a ever again buy anything from Nike. You guys suck more than anything. Kapernic is a racist fat person who is no good.
I applaud you for your courage to live up to what America truly stands for, freedom! Freedom to think and express your thoughts and beliefs. It's unfortunate that we have that freedom yet many want to limit your freedom because they think differently.
I've always favored Nike but now I'll be exclusive...and so will many of my friends and family. My daughter just returned from China and her Nike's took her to the GREAT WALL!! It was an awesome sight to behold and so was your decision to feature Collin K.
My prayer is that Nike will succeed beyond anything anyone can imagine.
I hope you realize that you have all this freedom because of the brave people who have fought and died defending America and her Flag. If your choice of "heroes" includes those who disrespect these things, you certainly have that right, but once again, ONLY because of those who fought and died to defend YOU! I shall be looking somewhere other than Nike and Kaepernick for MY heroes!
One more thing. Why not gather up your Nikes, your daughter and your whole family and just go ahead and move to China? Now THAT would be an awesome sight to behold!
THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU SAID YOU SO-CALLED PROUD AMERIKKKAN
why don't you go think about how ignorant you are
Get a life do something for America do you know the pledge of allegiance to our flag? I suppose because you are an aboriginal power group you do not have to do you like and respect our flag? If not you too should leave our country
I won't salute the bloody flag. Not until Trump the fascist idiot is gone.
Dear Trump the Traitor: My guess is that you do not even know the definition of a fascist. Ignorant people like you just try to use fancy words to steer others away from the fact that they are just plain dumb.
Do u even listen to yourself?
Go live in Venezuela!
Sit down aboriginal!
Oh my, aren't you the 'clever one' to spell America with KKK. The Democrats would be sooo proud of you since they started the KKK. You are a truly sad excuse for a human.
Karl I agree 100Per cent
I hope you realize this is only a problem to bitter white people. I know plenty of soldiers who do not take any offense to this because they know why he was kneeling... because of black men being killed for nothing and cops getting away with it. You all act like he was kneeling because he hates this country.. no he was kneeling because of the injustices of black people. All of yall MAGA people get on my nerves. America was great before you all came over and killed everyone.
I think you mean " none of your business"
I am just curious, that is a cool name even if I do not agree with you. 5star on the name if I am correct.
I have a bad knee due to Vietnam I kneel in church and whenever I need to bad knee excuse is typical kaepernick bullshit
While reading your comment, I thought it was pretty good until I got to the part where you said "America was great before you all came over and killed everyone." Please explain.
IT'S SELF-EXPLANATORY, BEFORE YALL GOT HERE THIS PLACE WAS ALREADY GREAT...
I guess you did your feeble best, but it's NOT self-explanatory. You didn't even come close to answering my question about Nonya Bizness' comment. You just put your own weird spin on it, which makes NO sense to anyone but you! By the way, PLEASE STOP YELLING! IT'S NOT HELPING YOU!
u r sooo stupid. u know nothing about American history
Yea ok aboriginal
Disrespect from other nations
Apologies being made to other countries
Should we go on fool?
I am an ex Army Cav soldier and i bet I know alot more Soldiers who don"t want nothing to do with a guy who was raised in white priveledge because his own family deserted him and then decides to piss on the people who helped him. Move to Cuba with that Castro shirt FOOL
SINCE YOURE MILITARILY TRAINED GO WHERE THERE ARE CLEAR INJUSTICES GOING ON AS IT PERTAINS TO THE SO-CALLED PEOPLE OF COLOR AND STAND ON THE FRONT LINES AND FIGHT, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR FLAG WITH YOU BECAUSE YOULL BE SHOWING US WHAT GOOD CAN COME FROM SOMEONE FIGHTING AND FLOATING THE AT THE SAME TIME FOR A WORTHY CAUSE OF SERVICE...
I agree. OUR military spends an inordinate amount of money. It needs to count.
Jake you are right 40million per f15really? How about the billions we are spending to go to Mars and our earth is dieting a slow or perhaps more rapid than we know death
u smell so bad I can smell it from here
That was a real intelligent reply are you so stupid you cannot do any better?
Military injustices? Did you forget about black tsu tsu soldiers murdering one million black men women and children's? Cutting off children's arms google it if you forgot I guess the whole world was wrong blacks are such wonderful people God loving and compasionate
Read my reply about tsu tsu soldiers
Jeff I so agree I was a lieutenant in armor fort hood Texas did my duty and respect our flag because I love it if blacks would do exactly as instructed by police there would be no problem just more excuses why do blacks always burn the businesses of hard working people is it because blacks are so thoughtful of others peoples property?
