Most people on both sides of the political spectrum assumed that Colin Kaepernick was going to just fade away off into the sunset with his NFL fortune.
This clearly was not the case as Nike has now decided to make Colin the face of their 30-year anniversary “Just Do It” slogan.
Kaepernick has been thrown back into the spotlight once again, and this time people are burning their Nike’s to protest the brand for choosing the man who kneels for the national anthem.
Now Colin Kaepernick, the former NFL quarterback, is being praised by the mainstream media for kneeling against civil injustice.
Unfortunately, Nike made Kaepernick the face of their new slogan but what they didn’t know was that Colin donated a huge sum to a group that honors a convicted cop killer.
Once people discover Colin gave $25,000 to this group, even more Nike apparel will go up in flames.
Kaepernick’s secret donation of $25,000 to a charitable group honoring a convicted cop killer has been leaked. His foundation gave the money to Chicago-based Assata’s Daughters in April as part of a million dollar charitable pledge.
Reported by the greatamericanpolitics:
Assata’s Daughters was founded in 2015 to ‘develop and train young people, ages 4-19, in the Black queer feminist tradition and in the spirit of Assata,’ according to the group’s website.
A hearty “Bronx cheer” for your selection of Colin Kaepernick as the face of the 30th Anniversary of your iconic “Just Do It” campaign.
Will his new Fall line include these sock *beauties*?
Be advised. Cops buy sneakers too …

Colin Kaepernick donated $25,000 to a charity named in honor of cop killer Assata Shakur, who was convicted of the 1973 murder of New Jersey Trooper Foerstar. Shakur escaped from prison and has been hiding out ever since in Cuba.
This is what Kaepernick thinks of police

Kinda like the left wing doesn’t talk about all the positives that the right does? Let’s talk about the fact he Kaepernick donated 20,000 to a group that is about honoring the cop killer Assata Shakur, why haven’t you seen this on the news?

Is Nike’s gamble paying off? Tucker Carlson debates…

just started sitting, which is generally disrespectful
• Gave $25K to the family of Assata Shakur in support of her actions of killing several cops
I’m not saying Colin Kaepernick is the worst guy ever, in fact I think he’s misguided more than anything, but he’s definitely…

Didn’t know Nike actually supported the killing of cops. Kaepernick donated to Assata’s Daughter’s which is named after Assata Shakur whom is wanted by the FBI for killing a State Trooper amongst other felonies. #BoycottNike

It must be nice to ignore that Kaepernick idolizes cop killer, and FBI’s most wanted Assata Shakur, legitimizes brutal dictatorships like Fidel Castro’s, and wears socks depicting cops as pigs…

Because of their association with Kaepernick, does this put Nike in bed with the group that honors Assata Shakur, too?
