Nike & Kaepernick

To all these folks talking about they’re boycotting Nike and burning their gear because they don’t agree with Nike’s past actions, please stop it! Stop referencing the sweatshops and other things. Cuz real talk: you’re burning and destroying gear that you own. Gear that you bought. So no, this isn’t about Nike’s past actions cuz none of that stopped you from purchasing their shit. This is about Kaepernick. This is about Black lives. Miss me with the BS! All of a sudden people care about Nike’s past but have been buying their shit for years— Make it make sense.

And y’all were the ones who said Kaepernick shouldn’t have been protesting on the job. So guess what? He got a new job. Stay mad!
