"He added that people would be allowed to wear their own Nike apparel to city parks and playgrounds." The mayor is ALLOWING private citizens to wear what they want????? This is America right?????
Good. Mayors and governors have done this forever. If I am not mistaken my governor of CT banned employee travel to NC when that state decided not to allow everyone into the bathrooms of their choice. Nice try but totally goes both ways.
"He added that people would be allowed to wear their own Nike apparel to city parks and playgrounds."
What a surprise!
All Americans can boycott both Nike products and all NFL games. This of course means no watching then on television and buying the over priced tickets. And do not forget the concession stands and the prices they charge.
In a dystopian future, the Nike logo could become the symbol of the resistance rebels.
If you what the ad it has nothing to do with Kaepernick. This is what Nike has stood for before Kaepernick. The majority of NIKE sales are from minorities. JUST VOTE FOR YOU RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH
The left boycotts over every little alleged slight (like In and Out Burger giving a campaign contribution to Republicans or Chic-fil-A), but they sure get upset when the same strategy is used on them.
I applaud the mayor. His memo is direct and reflects his citizens' beliefs.
Louisiana has one of the nation's highest number of welfare recipients. Perhaps Hiz Honor The Mayor should focus on something other than Nike.
How many mayor's ordered boycotts of banks that do business with fire arm manufacturers?
I support a ban against buying ANY Nike products. The company has chosen to enter the political ring, and as such, I'm expressing MY political decision.
I see. Nike is supposed to cancel the ad campaign and reverse course because the mayor of some jerkwater town doesn't like it. I'll be sure to pass along the memo.
