Black Pastors Call on Nike to Sever
Relationship with Colin Kaepernick

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 7/13/2019 2:26:48 PM

The Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) called on Nike Thursday to end its relationship with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has a prominent endorsement deal with the athletic company. Rev. William Owens, president of CAAP, said his organization is responding to Nike’s decision to pull an athletic shoe celebrating the Betsy Ross flag after Kaepernick expressed objections to it. [Tweet] “It has been clear for a long time that Colin Kaepernick’s views represent hard Left anti-American politics,” said Owens, a civil rights movement activist who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “They don’t represent most Americans, and they don’t reflect the outlook of most African Americans,”

Comments:

Gosh, I wonder if the Pravda Media Complex will cover THIS as much as they did removing the flag!

As I recall, Kaepernick is an Arab. Adopted by a white couple. (Poor them.) His girlfriend is a radical black activist.

Re #1, he’s half-whatever. His 19 year old white birth mother gave him away - her black baby daddy had skedaddled. The Kaepernicks adopted him as for some reason they could not adopt a white baby. They totally support whatever he does - see 2016 article: https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/18247113/colin-kaepernick-parents-break-silence-speak-support-criticized-quarterback

Bravo, Rev. Owens: “They don’t represent most Americans, and they don’t reflect the outlook of most African Americans,” he added. Where are America’s other pastors?

As per #1's comment, Kaepernick looks to be more Arab than black.

The next time Nike gets virtuous, these ministers should invite Nike owners to deposit their Nike gear at these churches who can redistribute to homeless. Donors devalue he Nike Street cred, the anti whitey mentality and bump up revenue for adidas ASICS Reebok new balance.....

#4 asks where the other American pastors are. I can tell you that the one at my church likely supports Kaepernick---his own son is a prominent state official with the ACLU.

Nike no longer cares about consumers and sales in America. They are completely more focused on Chinese and the rest of the world market. Nike turned its back against the Patriots and the country(America) that made them conglomerate and successful. Sad, even the patriotic American athletes are caving to its financial bribes in endorsing the Nike brands.

About two dozen frustrated House Republicans on Wednesday stormed the secret room where House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been running the closed-door impeachment inquiry. Led by House Judiciary Committee member Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), the Republican lawmakers attempted to enter the room where Schiff has been bringing in current and former State Department officials to testify on whether President Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine in exchange for alleged help with the 2020 election. A senior Pentagon official working on Ukraine, Laura Cooper, was scheduled to testify, but due restrictions set by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Schiff, members of the Armed Services Committee

The Big Fake News today is that Ukraine’s top diplomat, William Taylor, delivered a smoking gun to Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) secret impeachment hearings. That is not hyperbole, those are the headlines — “smoking gun.” So here we are again with Russian Collusion 2 in full swing, with the WALLS CLOSING IN ON TRUMP, and all of it backed by a coordinated news cycle about how President Trump is toast, done, over and out, corrupt and kaput fer realzies this time.

Joe Biden has come under fire his double standard after he lambasted Donald Trump as 'despicable' for comparing the impeachment inquiry to 'a lynching', when he made the same comparison himself in a resurfaced 1998 interview in defense of Bill Clinton. On Tuesday Trump took to Twitter to call slam the inquiry into his presidency as 'a lynching'. 'So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here - a lynching. But we will WIN!' he tweeted.

While the CBC was filming footage of the mural Friday, James Bagnell sprayed “Stop the Lies. This is Oil Country!!!” over the image of the teenager’s face.

Motorists in socialist Venezuela have long enjoyed the world’s cheapest gasoline, with fuel so heavily subsidized that a full tank these days costs a tiny fraction of a US penny. But the economy is in such shambles that drivers are now paying for fill-ups with a little food, a candy bar or just a cigarette. Bartering at the pump has taken off as hyperinflation makes Venezuela’s paper currency, the bolivar, hard to find and renders some denominations all but worthless, so that nobody will accept them. Without cash in their wallets, drivers often hand gas station attendants a bag of rice, cooking oil or whatever is within reach.

A massive drug bust in Southern California led to the confiscation of 18 pounds of fentanyl — enough to create 4 million lethal doses, authorities said. The huge seizure amounted to half of the fentanyl snagged in Orange County this year, with investigators nabbing about $1.25 million worth of the deadly opioid last Wednesday, the Orange County Register reported. “The threat this extremely potent drug poses to our community is increasing exponentially, not subsiding,” Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes said in a statement. The sheriff’s office said they also seized a semi-automatic handgun, heroin, methamphetamine and $71,000 in cash.

Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) where she demands that transgender border crossers and illegal aliens be released into the U.S. rather than being held in Mexico under President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy. “While in detention, transgender migrants and asylum seekers are particularly vulnerable to sexual harassment, discrimination, and abuse,” Warren writes in the letter. “The United States should protect individuals fleeing persecution and targeted violence, including persecution based on gender identity or expression —

Upon hearing the news that President Trump bowed to pressure from congressional Republicans and reversed his decision to hold next year’s G-7 summit at the Trump National Doral Miami, my immediate response was, “Ah, what might have been.” No, I’m not wistful about the missed opportunity for taxpayers to throw a lifeline to Trump’s struggling resort. Rather, I’m a bit misty-eyed about what the last three years might have looked like if Republicans had shown this kind of spine all along. There is an interesting consensus among the fiercely pro-Trump and anti-Trump forces on the right. For simplicity let’s call them Never Trumpers and Always Trumpers.

By now everyone knows that Mitt Romney used a Twitter account named "Pierre Delecto" to attack President Trump, Newt Gingrich, and others. Further, Pierre defended and praised Mitt. Too bad Pierre was not around to defend Mitt when the Democrats, led by Harry Reid, attacked Mitt for supposedly not paying income taxes, shipping jobs overseas, causing cancer to his employees, being mean to his dog, and so forth. (snip) The good news for non-quisling Republicans is that this should end the career of Pierre/Mitt to be the next John McCain as the go-to-guy whenever the Democrats and the media need a "Republican" to attack President Trump and conservatives.

They cited scheduling difficulties and new evidence of potential wrong doing by the White House as main reasons for the delay. Democrats now say that they hope to be ready for a vote by Christmas, but waiting that long to resolve the matter in the House and send it over to the Senate is rife with problems, which was why Democrats wanted it to be wrapped up by Thanksgiving in the first place.

The hole in the ozone layer has shrunk to its smallest size since scientists began monitoring it in 1982 because of unusual weather patterns in the upper atmosphere over Antarctica, according to NASA. The hole fluctuates in size annually and is usually largest during the coldest months in the southern hemisphere, from late September to early October. The latest observations from space have shown the hole now covers less than 3.9million square miles–a record low and almost half as small as it was during its peak at 6.3million on September 8 only six weeks ago.
