Nike is a sell out to all Americans, and they honestly don't deserve any of our business. After Colin Kaepernick whined about Nike sneakers being racist, simply because they donned the original American flag, they pulled the shoes from their inventory.
The sports apparel company said they "made the decision to halt distribution of the Air Max 1 Quick Strike Fourth of July based on concerns that it could unintentionally offend and detract from the nation's patriotic holiday."
Well, they caused offense, and plenty of it. That's what happens when you take advice from a racist cry baby.
Now, a popular clothing company out of Georgia, called Nine Line Apparel, has embraced the Betsy Ross flag in the midsts of the whole controversy.
Some people are not happy about Nike's decision to recall shoe though. This includes Nine Line Apparel, a Georgia-based clothing line founded by two Army Captains and brothers. They released a video on Tuesday titled the "Betsy Ross Flag is apparently racist."
In the video a man is speaking while wearing a shirt with the Betsy Ross Flag and the word 'victory' below it. The first thing he says is "Let's take a minute to talk about the child that is Colin Kaepernick, once again forcing himself back in the media because he deems something offensive or racist again."
The video goes to discuss the history of Nike and Nine Line Apparel supports freedom of expression. They are selling several of the Betsy Ross Flag shirts and hoodies on their website. These are only available until July 6th.
A Nine Line spokesperson said, "Nike leaves behind anti-American sentiment and division that harms our country. But since Nike has no interest in displaying the Betsy Ross flag, a classic symbol of freedom and unity, we proudly will. We don’t do recalls on patriotism."
I don't know about you, but I am giving my money to the company who embraces America.
