If you haven’t heard, a special Nike sneaker meant to celebrate the Fourth of July, the Air Max 1 USA, was recalled by the company after it had already been produced and sent out to retailers.
The reason was that Nike spokesman Colin Kaepernick objected to the fact that the red, white and blue footwear had a Betsy Ross flag on the heel, according to a Wall Street Journal report Monday.
You’ve probably seen that one — the one with 13 stars in a circle in the blue portion of the flag, one for each colony.
Sources within Nike told The Journal that the swoosh’s head of social justice twaddle “reached out to company officials saying that he and others felt the Betsy Ross flag is an offensive symbol because of its connection to an era of slavery."
I guess they must not be big fans of the Declaration of Independence, the Founding Fathers, or the Bill of Rights either, then.
At least they can still be proud of their party! Their party went to war to free slaves back in the... wait... sorry that was the Republicans.
