Colin Kaepernick puts his name on Nike products – big time sellers of footwear

Nike’s worth sourced from The Motley Fool: 

“The simplest measure of Nike’s worth

The stock market gives the most obvious indication of a simple valuation of a company. Nike currently has about 1.35 billion shares of publicly traded stock outstanding. A price of around $56 per share puts the value of Nike’s publicly traded shares at around $75 billion. However, Nike has non-traded Class A shares outstanding as well. When you add those in, Nike’s total market capitalization rises to about $94 billion.”

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – SEPTEMBER 05: A billboard featuring former San Francisco 49ers quaterback Colin Kaepernick is displayed on the roof of the Nike Store on September 5, 2018 in San Francisco, California. Nike launched an ad campaign to commemorate the 30th anniversary of its iconic “Just Do It’ motto that features controversial former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and a message that says “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.” Justin Sullivan/Getty Images/AFP == FOR NEWSPAPERS, INTERNET, TELCOS & TELEVISION USE ONLY ==

“Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”

Just do it.

This is Colin Kaepernick’s message to the entire world?


Where’d his hair go? Sacrificed it in the photo for a footwear company to use his face on their feet and the feet of the entire world?


To stay rich, because he doesn’t play football any more? So rather than work for the money at a real job, he hijacks football stadiums and flips his wig to sports fans, the military, law enforcement and white people?


And NIKE just paid him for that service. What is he going to do with all that money? Who is he going to give all that money to?


JUST DO IT?


Just do what, is my question and has always been my question. What pervert from Beaverton, Oregon thought that one up?


Just do what?


Whatever anybody is thinking they’d like to do when they encounter that slogan on another person?


Just do what?
  • kill someone?
  • rape someone?
  • steal someone’s car?
  • push someone into the street?
  • run someone down with your car?
  • spit in somebody’s food?
  • drug somebody’s drink?
  • scream fire in a theatre?
  • scream bomb in an airplane?
  • blow up a school?
  • plan a massacre?
  • put a suicide belt on?
  • blow up a stadium?
  • steal somebody’s shoes?
  • throw a dog off a building
  • set someone on fire?
  • eat somebody’s face?
  • smash a baby against the wall?

What? Just do what?

If it’s to do a good deed, then that needs to be interpreted – those who blow up buildings and people for religious or ideological reasons think they’re doing a good deed.

If it’s to show a kindness, then that doesn’t require sacrificing everything. It requires nothing that resembles a sacrifice.

I’ve been an animal rights activist for decades. I never sacrificed. I went without. There is a world of difference between the two.

NIKE is not responsible for what people do when they read or see that slogan > JUST DO IT.

Did Russia really make US citizens on social media vote for Donald Trump according to the democratic populace fueled by the democratic elite by paying for negative political ads regarding Hillary Clinton and the American democratic system of government? If the answer is yes, then NIKE will be held responsible in a court of law for all of the above.

Did Donald Trump becoming president really cause the entire membership of the democratic party to go off the rails and become hate mongers expressing a desire to destroy the American system of government as we know it, by denying half the populace the right to free speech and by undermining the executive, judicial and legislative branches of government? If the answer is yes, then NIKE will be held responsible in courts of laws all over the world for actions taken against individual people, other species, groups, nations and property based on that powerful slogan > JUST DO IT.

Note: There are a lot of loose ended people in the world with all kinds of hair dos, who will follow instructions when they are concisely communicated, as long as you don’t tell them HOW WHEN WHERE or for what reason to do it. But there’s only one fuzzy haired person hijacking stadiums for the purpose of disrupting a sport, a nation and a world for an extremely narrow agenda. The USA has unions to help workers address issues of unfair treatment in the work place – even for multi-millionaires.

It looks like the American black populace slept through 9-11. Guess they didn’t feel the horror that sticks like skin to the American white populace – to this day.

The American black needs to find it’s own soul, instead of hijacking the souls of their unsuspecting victims.

Ditch the slogan is my recommendation.


Ditch the slogan. JUST DO IT period.


WE ARE THE NOISELESS

Most of what I see at rallies where people protest prejudicial social conditions of every type, including those of other species, is a lot of screaming, mostly screaming in fact. Such loud, vicious, teeth-bearing, gut-ripping vitriol that it becomes worthy of the name assault.

But it isn’t working. Assault never does do anything but get somebody’s attention short-term. A loud noise, everybody looks where it’s coming from. The message to the brain is assault assault alert alert get out get out – unless it settles down, then it’s okay to stay.

Noise gains or loses its power commensurate with the decibel level. The decibel level at modern-day rallies is way too high. High decibel levels are incitement tools used by rally planners to get attention and keep the attention.

Soft-spoken rarely works except also to agitate. Don Lemon of CNN notoriety uses that soft-spoken approach, but it isn’t effective. It isn’t real. You can see him seething beneath the surface of his mask and he likes that you can see that, but it doesn’t work except to make him look insincere.

Agitate and they’ll probably all go home.

Incite and they stay only because once incited it takes a longer time to come down from the incitement.

Incite at several locations with varying start-times and you’ve got a rally that will last all night resulting in destruction.

But still there’s no message, except violence. The rally then becomes reduced to its signage, but even those blurbs/bumper stickers get watered down due to the close proximity to the noise assaults popping all over the streets.

Try total silence. Synchronized courtesy. No utterance from the mouth, no singing, no humming, no nothing that can be in any way construed as noise.

No eyeball rolling. No makeup, no drinking beverages, no back packs. No mask unless it’s the animal mask with no hole for your mouth.

No chains, flame throwers, bats, signs. No words. No skateboards, roller skates, hockey sticks. Only the presence of a multitude of people who come in peace. No baby strollers. Who would take a baby to a rally?

I’ve never seen a peaceful rally. The government regards any rally that doesn’t result in a murder as peaceful. Even if a few blocks are burned to the ground and cars torched, it is still considered mostly peaceful.

A few bad apples they say. But a few bad apples is what it takes to make a mob of bad apples, so stop using that phraseology. You’re looking stupid. People have eyes and ears. You claiming something didn’t happen when they saw that it did, makes you look incompetent.

That is a low bar the USA sets for peace. Don’t think other nations haven’t taken note of where that bar is located.

No arm waving, no flailing, no hair flipping, no improvisational movements, no dancing.

WE ARE THE NOISELESS. No horns. No road-blocking.

One person carries one sign. Make it a powerful message – one that everyone can agree with, not in a perfect world, but in this world, now.

The multitude follows the sign-holder. Show the world what follow looks like. Instead you show the world what chaos looks like. Not good. Not effective.

Can you do that?

Then your message falls on deaf ears. You lack discipline.

Discipline is the key to all success.

The Key to discipline is spiritual growth.

The Key to spiritual growth is self-knowledge.

The Key to self-knowledge is love.

If you can’t do that, then you don’t know yourself.

What’s discipline?

The motive to move.

It starts with a thought.

Move that thought – to a good place for all.

Okay, I can compromise.

Whisper. Not like you’re in a saw mill. Like you’re in a library.

I wonder what that sounds like – thousands of people whispering.

The Blacks can’t do it. Their eyes will be popping all over the place from the strain.

Train yourself. Use a mirror.

“You can do it. I know you can.” SL (my original quote, not Obama’s)

You won’t be able to stop talking with your hands. I have that problem too. The minute I start hand-talking people start looking at them like I’m going to punch them. They don’t hear a word I say.

I’ve got a better idea, walk like a penguin. Don’t put your arms in the sleeves of your shirt. Button your shirt. Or wear a sweat shirt; it’s easier. And keep your hands out of your pants. Who raised you to do that?

I see a field of whispering penguins out there. Wonder what they’re up to?

They’re not happy about something.

What?

Probably same as always, they want more money. They want you to forgive them their debts.

“Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.”

Can we do that?

Make some phone calls.






Return of the Violent Black Nationalist

During a single month last year, America witnessed two of the most horrific shooting attacks against law enforcement in recent memory. 

On July 7, 2016, Micah Xavier Johnson ambushed Dallas police officers during a peaceful protest against police brutality, killing five officers and wounding nine others. Ten days later, Gavin Eugene Long shot six officers, killing three, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Both Johnson and Long were reportedly motivated by their strong dislike of law enforcement, grievances against perceived white dominance, and the recent fatal police shootings of unarmed black men under questionable circumstances, specifically the shooting deaths of Alton Sterling of Baton Rouge and Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. Although many Americans were understandably upset and angry over the deaths of Sterling and Castile, killing others as retribution is certainly not justified. Authorities would later learn that Johnson and Long had ties to black hate groups.

That same month, six Christian churches in St. Louis, Missouri, were either burned or vandalized. Graffiti left at the crime scenes made reference to “Negroes Are the Israelites,” “Wake Up!,” “The Real Israelites Are Rising.” These statements are indicative of Black Hebrew Israelite ideology, which portrays Christianity as “evil” and may point to motivation for the property destruction. As details developed about the Dallas, Baton Rouge and St. Louis attacks, it was apparent that a domestic terrorist threat had re-emerged — a threat not seen since the 1970s. This cluster of attacks would later signify the return of the violent Black Nationalist.

On the rise

According to counter-terrorism experts and scholars, Black Nationalism rose in reaction to white racism during America’s civil rights era. It encompasses hatred toward whites, homosexuals, and Jews. Black Nationalists have also advocated for a separate territory for African Americans within the country (similar to white nationalists who argue for a white homeland in the Pacific Northwest). According to their propaganda, Black Nationalists would like a portion of the Southeast United States reserved for a black nation. Further, they are known for their antigovernment and anti-police sentiments due to their long-held views on government corruption and police brutality.

Like most extremist movements in the United States, Black Nationalism’s worldview is shaped by conspiracy theories. In their case, these conspiracies relate to perceived white oppression. They believe that whites — oftentimes conspiring with Jews — control the financial system, government and the media. They believe they are mistreated as a result of their race and ethnicity. For these reasons, they refer to incarcerated Black Nationalist inmates as “political prisoners.” Similar to other hate groups, some Black Nationalist groups conduct prison outreach programs to recruit other inmates into their extremist cause. Some have also been known to recruit street gang members…

Although not necessarily violent as organizations, groups such as the Nation of Islam, New Black Panthers, New Black Liberation Militia, the New Black Panther Nation and the Five Percenters are incubators of radical fanaticism. They attract violent individuals whom they indoctrinate, like Johnson, Long, Brinsley and Muhammad, encouraging criminal activity and violence…
