How can Nike give money to such a polarizing figure? Colin Kaepernick started protests during the national anthem, where people are supposed to be honoring our flag and troops.
Nike has obviously prioritized being edgy rather than the respect of the country that has allowed, and empowered, the company to become an iconic sneaker producer with over $36 billion in revenue. People shouldn't buy anything from a brand that does not respect the flag or our troops.
Finally! Corporate America gets it!
Nike is doing the right thing by backing Kaepernick. His protest against police brutality and racial injustice has brought issues to light and he needs to be supported. Everyone wants to be on the right side of history and Nike wants people with a conscience wearing its gear. This company deserves to be embraced for taking a stand on social issues, not boycotted.
