    Re: Backlash after Nike signs new deal with Colin Kaepernick

    I like to know what "all" is with Kapernick's "sacrifice."

    Well he and Nike sacrificed $4 Billion yesterday to share holders

    What an insult to the One who sacrificed "all."

    What an insult to the men and women who have sacrificed their lives to the service of this nation and our citizens.

    I wonder if he sacrificed his payment from Nike?

    But the sacrifice statement- for him? LOL

    What a joke
    I'd rather wear Nike than Skechers.

    I bought two pairs of Skechers. One endured 8 months of light use before literally falling apart. The other lasted 3 months before they became so uncomfortable I couldn't use them. One day I literally threw them in the back of my car and walked across gravel in socks because I decided I'd rather do that than wear the Skechers any longer. I complained to Skechers about the appalling quality of their product and they were kind enough to offer me 10% off another pair, if I sent my existing shoes to them at my expense. Thanks, but no. I've been wearing Asics since then.

    Been wearing Skechers as well. Really comfortable. One pair did de-soled itself a lttle quickly, but the latest ones have held up well.

    Now my Scarpa hikers. Comfy but expensive.

    Worker's rights violations in Nike factories in China, Vietnam, and Indonesia with regard to wages, sub-standard and even dangerous working conditions, harsh treatment of workers, including physical abuse, forbidding bathroom breaks, etc., been reported by many outlets over the years. In some instances, workers are even forced to live at the factory in cramped quarters. At times, there seems to be a fine line between what one would call worker's rights violations and human rights violations. But, Nike can crank out those products at a fraction of the price they would have to pay American workers, so all of those matters are incidental. At the end of the day, All that matters is that Nike's investors are happy with the profit margin.

    This cozy partnership between Nike and Kapernick is mutually beneficial: the unemployed Kapernick gets a nice income as the shill for the sweat shop-produced, over-priced products, and Nike benefits from all the media attention Kapernick has been garnering for himself. In the meantime, the reality is, the "hero making sacrifices in the name of social justice" and the company taking a stand with him are a portrait in self-serving hypocrisy.

    When we stand before the Judgment Seat, we will have retained only two things from our earthly life: what God gave us, and what we did with what He gave us.

    I just got through reading this pitiful article below on Fox News today.

    Colin Kaepernick thanks Miami Dolphins players for anthem protest prior to season opener:

    What you see as people falling for something many see as people taking a stand for something. Sitting on the sidelines and pretending it means nothing seems to me as falling for something. That something would be a further decay of our society.

    Nike knew exactly what they were doing: taking a stand for something that has already angered many people. Like Dicks who will never see another penny of my money neither will Nike. That's my stand. I take it because I take a stand for something I believe in, as opposed to taking no stand.

    Here is what I will ALWAYS take a stand for.

    As a military veteran, I took an oath to defend the US Constitution, and therefore the rights and freedoms it affords all Americans. That would encompass one's prerogative not to stand during the playing of the national anthem. Yet, whether one sits or kneels, it dishonors countless American military personnel who have sacrificed their lives to ensure our republic remains free--including over 400,000 who died during War World II helping end Adolf Hitler's global empire ambitions. These were the instruments God chose to serve His purposes, but had he not been defeated, I can assure you, neither Kaepernick nor any other member of an ethnic group would be around today to protest social injustice in a stadium--let alone enjoy the millionaire's life an NFL or Nike contract affords. And at state-sanctioned sporting events, the Swastika flag rather than the Stars and Stripes would be displayed, some National Socialist anthem rather than the Star Spangled Banner would be played, and standing would NOT be optional.

    Whenever the rights of Americans are trampled on, it is a very serious matter and should be protested and rectified--at City Hall and the voting booth, not during sporting events.

    I think they should protest wherever they wish, and let the marketplace deal with the consequences.
