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.

Progressives never learn. Even as Democrats running for president line up behind a national $15/hour minimum wage, on the West Coast, where cities like Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco all have implemented this demand, a restaurant chain with over 2,000 employees has filed for bankruptcy, citing the high minimum wages that have increased its costs. Jeremy Hill reports for Bloomberg (hat tip: Legal Insurrection): Progressive wage policies helped force upscale eatery operator Restaurants Unlimited Inc. into bankruptcy, according to court documents filed Sunday.

So did Trump blow it by implicitly telling Rep. Ilhan Omar to go back to her home country, fix it up, and get back to us? Did he overplay his hand? Is a remark like that, universally decried by Democrats, a step too far? Not by Trump's standards. The controversial string of tweets, which stirred the pot mightily in the press, was as politically incorrect as it comes. In fact, Trump hasn't put out a string like this since the 2016 campaign. The tweets were at least in part about the 2020 campaign. They were also about weakening House speaker Nancy Pelosi,

Pro-migration progressives are damning a new regulation that denies migrants the right to even ask for asylum if they have traveled through Mexico without first asking Mexico’s government for asylum. “This is an effort to end all asylum at the southern border,” said Todd Schulte, director of the Silicon Valley lobbying group, FWD.us, which supports the mass inflow of migrants into the U.S. labor and consumer markets. “This is an effort–in clear violation of US law, international law, and basic truthfulness to claim these countries are safe–by the United States of America to deny anyone asylum.”

Harris tweeted: “Gun violence is the leading cause of death for young Black men in America. We must stop this. When president, I will take executive action to ensure guns do not fall into the wrong hands.” Executive gun control has been a staple of Harris’ campaign for the Democrat presidential nomination.

Regular readers know that I am a fan of President Trump, and more often than not, a fan of his use of social media. But today he committed the worst unforced error of his presidency, one that we will hear about from the Democrats from now until November 2020. This morning the president tweeted about “‘Progressive’ Democratic Congresswomen”: [Tweet]I assume Trump is talking about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “Squad,” and I share his low opinion of those ill-informed leftists.
