Xcon is right that many consumers are more tethered to a desire to purchase goods from brands that resonate with that hard to quantify "vibe" than specific values, but the stars may have aligned with folks buying nike as a way of sticking it to the {trump) man.
I wonder if the 1% that have benefited so handsomely from the trumpie tax cuts sold their Nike stock in solidarity with "the base"? Or just maybe, they are working both sides of the fence on the backs of unwitting consumers similar to what they did in 2016 with those who go to those wacky rallies?

Kaepernick just announced that he's going to change the focus of his protest from police corruption and abuses to taking a stand against Robert Mueller's investigation and the preferential treatment of Hillary Clinton by the FBI and the DOJ.

Kapernicsk bitch about Hillary was a well known real thing, not a joke. Couple of versions, you can google it, most of the mainstream news covered this. It would be funny if Nike did a Kap inspired "HILLARY FOR PRISON" shirt. Given that Nikes political money primarily goes to republicans they say, it might be a thing.


"You have Hillary who has called black teens or black kids super predators, you have Donald Trump who's openly racist," Kaepernick told reporters in August.

Kaepernick was also critical of Clinton for her use of a private email server during her time as Secretary of State. The FBI investigated Clinton but did not charge her with a crime. "We have a presidential candidate who has deleted emails and done things illegally and is a presidential candidate," Kaepernick told reporters. "That doesn’t make sense to me because if that was any other person you’d be in prison. So, what is this country really standing for?"

"San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick believes that the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton should be in prison. “We have a presidential candidate who has deleted emails and done things illegally and is a presidential candidate,” he said. “That doesn’t make sense to me because if that was any other person you’d be in prison.” Kaepernick shared his thoughts about the presidential election while trying to explain his decision to sit during the national anthem to protest the United States.

“So, what is this country really standing for?” he asked after bringing up Clinton’s behavior in political office."

Maybe it's already been done?



ps, Nike stock will be fine. The margins they get are insane, that won't change even if a few less folks don't buy their overpriced products.

I wonder how it would have gone over if the black guy had shot the cop who mistakenly entered his home or if he had entered the cop's apartment by mistake and then shot her for being there.

She was fired and is being charged, what more do you want?

I want her arrested and beaten, like any black amn would have been.

I also wonder how it would have gone down if he had shot her for home invasion. He likely would have been arrested, beaten, and charged with killing a cop.

Well the broken social contract in Chicago got the better of bare-knuckle brawler Rahm Emanuel. I will say thoug,h that at a presidential advisory level, he, james carville and james baker were masters.

well IF truth matters then both Kapernick and yourself are both either lying or simply so biased and uninformed and eager to believe anything negative that you blindly accept this

"You have Hillary who has called black teens or black kids super predators, you have Donald Trump who's openly racist," Kaepernick told reporters in August.

flat wrong, Hillary Clinton did no such thing, she did not call black teens, or black kids, or African Americans, or any specific racial or ethnic group "super predators"

you suggest this is not a joke and to google it yourself, I did

"flat wrong, Hillary Clinton did no such thing, she did not call black teens, or black kids, or African Americans, or any specific racial or ethnic group "super predators"

Schmidt also said:
"well IF truth matters then both Kapernick and yourself are both either lying or simply so biased and uninformed and eager to believe anything negative that you blindly accept this"

You may not be familiar with the " symbol (that means quote) means John. When you see this: " " it means that everything between the " " in this case Kapernick said it. I was simply quoting what he said. So, why don't you call him out for being an ignorant bitch? Do you need his email? Tell him he never said Hillary should be in prison. Tell him that all of the mainstream media MUST have reported it incorrectly. No need to tell me, I'm merely using " symbols to denote what another said. In case you missed it, and I suspect you did, " means you are quoting another person. In this case Kapernick. I'll talk slow just for you and here is what Colin Kapernick said,

AGAIN Kap said:
"We have a presidential candidate who has deleted emails and done things illegally and is a presidential candidate," Kaepernick told reporters. "That doesn’t make sense to me because if that was any other person you’d be in prison. So, what is this country really standing for?"

Ooooo look, those little "" """thinggys again, I wonder what those strange little things can possibly mean? LOL I tried to talk slow just for you.

Apologies for the moccasin shoe joke going over your head in reference to Nike or 5.10's, xCon.

That said, I think the biggest problem that people have with Colin Kaepernick is that he is a football player who is capable of critical thinking.

Football players are supposed to entertain their fans and not make them feel awkward.
