    America was so racist during WWII it wouldn't let black American citizens kill white Nazis or allow them to build weapons to use against them.

    And when stockholders, representing pension plans holding billions of dollars in Nike stock, complain about their holdings decreasing in value because of this ill thought out marketing plan, what will they say?

    If they are worried then they should sell their stock tomorrow morning.

    It's a leftist company. Take up your sweatshop complaints with them, not me.

    Most of whom are racist anyway. And don't buy Nike products either.

    It also represents the abolition of slavery in this country. The end of Jim Crow (except in academia where segregation and No Whites Allowed
    is not uncommon). And the establishment of many autonomous Native American nations.

    That would be disrespecting the flag. Something he hasn't done, yet.

    So it's OK to take a stand against America for social justice concerns, but it's alright to throw social justice concerns to the wind and pretend you're a hero in order to make the big bucks. Got it.

    A racist would be described as someone who only cares about people on one color being shot and not people of another color. We see this with Kaepernick, Detroit, St Louis, Baltimore, New Orleans, Chicago and the liberals on this board.

    BTW, if you're protesting an oppressive and racist country then you should protest how it finances its racism and oppression and not pay your taxes, you know, in protest.
