It is now evident that Nike committed brand suicide when they made Colin Kaepernick one of the faces of their latest ad campaign. Kaepernick turned into a social justice warrior after he went to the Super Bowl one year on the backs of a strong defense.
However, a year ago, Daily Mail revealed that the kneeling “hero” Colin Kaepernick’s $25,000 donation to a charitable group honoring a convicted cop killer.
Kaepernick’s foundation made the donation to Chicago-based Assata’s Daughters, named after former Black Liberation Army member Assata Shakur, in April as part of a $1million charitable pledge.
Shakur was convicted of first-degree murder in the 1973 shooting death of New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster and sentenced to life in prison, but staged a daring jailbreak and now lives as a fugitive in Cuba.
Kaepernick, who is well known for his protests against police during the national anthem as a former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, made the donation as part of his pledge to donate $100,000 a month for 10 months to ‘organizations working in oppressed communities.’

Well done Nike! Holding up Colin Kaepernick as an example of someone who has ‘sacrificed everything’. Right!
So, judging by his actions, he’s against police brutality of minorities but fully supports the murder of cops. This is what Democrats are glorifying!! So wrong.
Unfortunately, Democrats want us to believe that this guy sacrifices for this country. But, here you have it!
So, share this article so can more people learn that this guy is not a hero at all.
