We have courts and juries for a reason. They aren't perfect but they are a lot better than some video and a media selling sports cars.
    Blacks are so stupid they don't realize once they fail to obey a police officer command that they MUST obey, they just signed their own death warrant.
    It does not take a rocket scientist to know to OBEY a police officer order. Of course, we don't have a lot of black rocket scientists.

    I have not owned a Nike product in 30 years, and will continue the same.

Many have no intention of assimilating into the American culture, its laws, values or even a need for education. It is easier to blame “whitie” for their plight, lack of jobs and thru crime, their actions against police which they then claim to be police brutality ! Obama played a big role in this current issue when he took the side of blacks during the Ferguson, Mo. riots matter, claiming the entire fault was that of police and their brutality. The blacks jumped on that bit of BS and have ran with it ever since. There is much more racism on the black side than on the white side, and if there are those who disagree, maybe they can explain how a black man was elected to two terms as president of a country that is almost 80% white !! I well realise this topic is about Nike, but it is also regarding a black cause which my concerns also involve. If we are going to consider Nike, Kaepernick and what is all involved in this movement, then all must be stated, as much of Kaepernick’s philosophy is suspect to say the least ! There are many non-blacks in this country who also are subject to many of the same problems claimed by the black community, but we do not see riots from them, or find causes in their defense. I guess that rightiousness is reserved for only those who display the most disrespect to society ! I do not like to turn this situation into a race topic, but that is exactly what Nike has done with their involvement and the right to answer has to be respected !
    Unfortunately ( as you know ) the world is not a perfect place ....

    But is it the Christian thing to do to take it when it is not needed ? I think that is what the crust of the issue is concerning. And is the need self imposed or actual ?

    I would have to say that her words describing sacrifice pretty damn well says it all. I do not know what better argument anyone could make to bring the issue of Kaepernick into focus !!

    That has always been a huge problem Rock, the media has caused more trouble between the races in their attempt to promote themselves ! I know the news has to be aired and there must be freedom of the press, but it should also be required that intelligence be required in so doing. Some of the stuff we are subjected to is no higher in content than that of the National Inquirer.

    Some food pantries here don't ask for financial info. You come through the door and say you have a need they will give you food !
    Kind of the Christian thing to do ?

    I hear PETA is quite fond of squirrels that live in SE Missouri.....

    So I guess pasting his face on a jumbotron on Times Square at 8am is quiet symbolism?

This is going to produce an outcome at some point of a cop being convicted and doing time. (Actually, this has already happened in Fort Worth, I believe.) The football player probably made more money in his football career than I made in 40 years of working so, I have little sympathy for his plight. Nike just wants money, like so many corporations. If they think their business will improve by throwing some at him, I say have at it. It won't work on me.
    About twice as many more whites are killed each year than blacks (457 to 223). Although that is a disproportionate number of blacks killed, it is worth noting that blacks commits crimes at a disproportionately higher rate.
