    I've explained this already, I'm not repeating myself. If anyone honestly thinks being mad at Nike for this is a good use of energy but nothing else then I'm sorry but they're just dumb and fake with their morals as all fck.

    Charlatans and demagogues who speak out both sides of their mouths about cutting welfare and being charitable are being shown for the lying lice they are; donate your **** to veterans, you ****ing ingrates.

    It was? So where were the videos of people burning their gear? Where was the "Nike is un-American" brigade? Where was the crippling hit to Nike's $30 billion+ profit at?

    Nike makes over $34B/year and sells over 120,000,000 shoes per year. That doesn't cover all of the other products they sell. If Colin Kaepernick receives $40M for his ad campaign, that means he would make about a penny a shoe over a 3 year contract.

    BTW, he looks pretty white to me. Where is the cutoff these days?

    Dude, you never explained your attack on "white people" other than a claim it was over being butt hurt. That's fine. You are free to make a anti-white racist post then bitch about others if they make an anti-black racist post. Hypocrisy is part of what keeps things like Colin's $40M Nike contract a good investment.

    Nike has a leftist agenda. Just like NBC News and the rest of the media.

    These are not Republican businessmen calling the shots.

    Yes it was. Tarriffs are coming. Raping the environment and using slave labor in a communist country to end run environmental protections and US labor protections, screwing the North American worker is OVER! Colin and Nike are on the wrong side of history here.

    I've said it multiple times already, you guys priorities and sense of morality as far as this issue goes is all the way fcked up. You guys are the ones making videos of you burning your Nike gear, not black people. You guys are extra salty about it, not us.

    I would point out that Nike is a publicly traded company. So, as a shareholder, I have a stake in whatever "political statement" that costs me 3-10% of my value. And normally, folks who make stupid decisions that end up costing the shareholders real money get fired. So, the Nike board should get involved and fix this. As for the relationship between the NFL and Nike, the best news is there are a number of other suppliers who can, and could immediately replace Nike.

    For Chinese sweat, blood and misery Colin the oppressor pays slave wages. Part and parcel.

    Personally don't give a **** who Nike associates with. It's not my prerogative to care.

    I do give a **** about hypocritical right wing plebes burning viable clothing they -ought- to be donating.

    Proves they are hypocrites of the tallest order.

    Interesting. I was under the impression that Phil Knight and Mark Parker, the big owner and CEOs of the company, are the ones "paying" them.

    Weird..

    Wow do you claim to speak for the entire black race? Had no idea we have a spokesman here. How do y'all feel about Allen West?

    Don't believe I've ever claimed to speak for all blacks. But I stand by my point that the vast majority of folks who are flipping out about Nike now are not black.

    My motto for the nfl kneelers is take a knee, break a knee

    Then everyone will have a reason to cheer
