So now Nike is taking the opinion of one person who claims a sneaker is “offensive” and nixing that product? This is unreal!
These days, everyone is offended by something whether it’s considered “racist” or “cultural appropriation”, it’s out of control!
Is this teaching the next generation to focus only on how something might offend them? Are we raising a bunch of Snowflakes who just can’t survive in the real world?
If everything is deemed racist, then nothing is racist and if people can’t adopt things identified with another culture then how will we remain a multicultural “melting pot”?
The left has been hijacking the narrative on race and culture for way too long. It might have reached its pinnacle with this latest so-called “offense” by Nike:
How in the world did we get to a place where a former pro football player can make decisions for a huge corporation like Nike?
The WSJ reports that Nike Inc. is yanking a U.S.A.-themed sneaker featuring an early American flag after NFL star-turned-activist Colin Kaepernick told the company it shouldn’t sell a shoe with a symbol that he and others consider offensive, according to people familiar with the matter.
The sneaker giant created the Air Max 1 USA in celebration of the July Fourth holiday, and it was slated to go on sale this week. The heel of the shoe featured a U.S. flag with 13 white stars in a circle, a design created during the American Revolution.
