🖤✊🏾 Whereas I don’t give a damn about those who are clutching their pearls in feigned horror at @nike
‘s endorsement, I was interested by some remarks I’ve seen where people “aren’t feeling” this, that it’s just a money making scheme for Nike. While I understand that initial reaction, I can only think this.....a multi billion dollar company as Nike doesn’t make huge decisions like this quickly or loosely. How long as it been since Kaep took a knee? 🤔Yeah, exactly. Sure, they’ll be making money but so would the NFL and the team owner of whichever team he’d be on if they weren’t so scared to do the right thing and sign him. But most importantly (for me at least), Kaep will deservedly be making money, which will allow him more means to support his family, his foundation, and his community, and I am ALL the way here for THAT. ✊🏽
Nike could’ve gone the safe, easy-to-swallow route for that segment of America who likes to claim they don’t see race or want to just sweep history under the rug (not even getting that the rug is woven with the fibers of the very offenses against which Colin is protesting. Duh!!). They didn’t. So, yeah, they’ll get their money and I ain’t mad at that, but Mr. Kaepernick will too, and he deserves it. I’ll be buying some Nike gear myself but will make sure I give a markedly higher amount to Colin’s foundation (see, we can choose how and where we spend our money, folks). @kaepernick7
