    I can ask but that doesn't mean his parents will let him answer.

    It was, but it was for that 1 poster trying to derail the thread with most every post. Which is typical for that poster.
    I often stoop down to the level of the poster in these forums when they troll so much.

    If that were true, why are they hiring a mediocre ex-NFL football player to be their spokesman? Is it because they are targeting a specific audience? Like those least able to afford them but will follow a person they think is a spokesman for minority rights?

    This isn't the first time a young black male was shot over Nike shoes: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/detroit-man-charged-after-teen-fatally-shot-over-air-jordan-sneakers/
    A Detroit man is charged in the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old boy who was trying to sell a pair of Nike Air Jordan sneakers.

    He knew it was a risk, he knew he might leave a beautiful wife behind, his lucrative contracts, his health.

    He went and fought.

    This lefty freak did nothing.

    Translation: You're correct, Max!

    No worries, Dave. Everyone knows you lean hard left and think very little of police officers. What piqued my curiosity is why so many LWers want to ban guns and only allow cops and the military to have guns. Don't you think that is odd?

    True. And Pat Tillman KNEW the risks-and he still went and sacrificed everything.

    The difference between his sacrifice, and a deranged mediocre lefty getting an advertising contract is not subtle.

    A news story about it I heard on the radio today, they think they will be on the correct side of history.

    Why did Target change to an open bathroom policy?

    You don't know that. The issue is still open and evolving.

    And that should be enough to call out Kap for being a POS on the face of it for playing the race card to his own enrichment. Don't you get it? He is a shithole football player, replaced by BLAINE GABBERT :roflol:

    (and that in itself is embarrassing) :roflol:

    I can tell the difference but at this point, with you guys trying to hammer it in you’re making it hard for me to care.

    Tillman died for the right to peacefully protest. You and other RWers want to take that away. RWers shame what he died for.

    You know the old saying, when all you have is a hammer everything looks like a nail.

    Of course. What else would they say? "Sorry, we made a multi-million dollar ****up"?

    What's the side of history that you believe they are on? That it's a national tragedy homicide is the #1 cause of death for black males age 14-34? That the main cause of death for those black males is other black males? This isn't about race, it's about culture. 90 years ago it was Italian and Irish males getting killed, mostly by other gangbangers, but, yes, by the police because those Italian and Irish males were engaged in criminal activities much higher than the national average. Want to be on the right side of history? Try solving the gang problems. Try understanding the wisdom of "It's better to teach a man to fish than give a man a fish".

    ....
    Shares of Nike were down by as much as 3 percent on Tuesday, after the sportswear giant chose anthem-kneeling activist Colin Kaepernick as the face for the 30th anniversary of its iconic “Just Do It” slogan.
    Kaepernick was the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem, an anti-American political protest that sparked a backlash against the sport and sent ratings tumbling. Kaepernick also sported socks depicting police as pigs at team practices and wore t-shirts celebrating Cuban communist dictator Fidel Castro.

    Kaepernick’s defenders have falsely claimed that his protests were not anti-American, but merely meant to show his opposition to racism. However, Kaepernick’s own statements show that he equates American pride with racism.

    “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick said after he kneeled at an August 2016 game. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

    The choice of Kaepernick sparked tens of thousands of people to tweet using the hashtag #NikeBoycott on Tuesday morning. Some users posted images of themselves ripping or burning Nike shoes and clothing.
