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.

Speech Freedom Rights Are Doled Out In The USA – you have to wait your turn if you’re white

Donald Trump has mostly silent supporters whose voices are not heard due to the terror tactics being promised against them via the media should they speak out.

It’s past-time for equal PROTECTION under the law regarding freedom of speech rights. The USA is the laughing-stock of the world, demanding freedom of speech rights in everybody else’s country, but then turning a blind eye to the lack of freedom rights in their own.

Stop the insanity of deciding when it’s somebody’s turn.

The Constitution of the USA provides speech protections to all inhabitants all the time, not when the media, the government or special interest groups decide it’s somebody’s turn.

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

A terror situation emerges when public figures or media aka press personalities threaten individuals of the populace for their political views or for how they vote. This needs to be stopped before it gets out of control.

It seems that the only people who have speech freedom rights all the time in the USA is the media aka press. They decide on whose voices get heard. Oh yeah, and Madison Avenue – advertisement agencies decide who has constitutional rights and who doesn’t.

How low can you go?

MADISON AVENUE TURNS THE FIRST AMENDMENT INTO AN ADVERTISEMENT COUP AGAINST WHITE PEOPLE. GO TO THE BACK OF THE LINE. IT’S NOT YOUR TURN.

THE BULL AND THE GIRL

WALL STREET BULL AND FEARLESS GIRL

The girl did not stare the bull down and the bull did not stare the girl down.

They both recognized each other as equally worthy.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai: ‘thousands of calls’ on YouTube boycott

Google was forced to make an all-out public relations push after big advertisers complained their ads ran next to objectionable YouTube videos.

Google made ‘thousands of calls’ to prevent advertisers from boycotting YouTube

  • Google execs were forced to make “thousands and thousands” of calls to calm nervous YouTube advertisers
  • Effort came after some big brand advertisers threatened a boycott
  • Uproar began after big-name brand ads found next to objectionable YouTube videos
Michael Newberg | CNBC
Susan Wojcicki, CEO of YouTube.

An uproar that began with hate speech on YouTube was quelled only after a major charm offensive by Google.

The Internet giant was forced to make an all-out public relations push in recent weeks to reassure big advertisers after some well-known brands had their ads placed next to objectionable content on its video service, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said late Thursday.

In an effort led by chief business officer Phillip Schindler, the company reached out to calm “thousands and thousands” of YouTube clients nervous that their brands might be next to suffer the same embarrassment, Pichai said on a conference call with Wall Street analysts after the company’s Q2 earnings report on Thursday.

The effort came after a slew of well-known brands, including McDonald’s, Audi and AT&T, said they would temporarily suspend advertising on YouTube after the Times of London discovered ads placed next to racist, sexist and xenophobic content.

The uproar caused at least one financial analyst to downgrade the company’s shares…

AFP Comment: Hey, what’s good for one is good for the other. Maybe we should ask those You Tube people if they want the ads of McDonald’s, Audi, AT&T and others placed next to their videos. I’ve seen some pretty horrible stuff placed next to my posts and I have no control over it. That’s not fair. Word Press always says they can’t control it, so how is it that You Tube can?

The point isn’t to get an upgrade and pay for not having the ads placed next to your stuff. The random practice of placing ads plus the purposeful practice of placing ads next to people you want to bump out or compete with are the problems with ad placement.

Think about this, who in their right mind would want to put foot fungus and pus-dripping enlarged eyeballs or Oprah Winfrey (the multibillionaire who can’t stop crying in public) beside and beneath the same posts with food pictures? It’s grotesque and used to not only sell a product (even though no one likely knows what the product is), but to encourage people to look away from the writer’s post at something putrid. It’s an assault of the writer’s brand. It doesn’t even have to be about the ad agency or the company it represents selling foot fungus products.

No one is going to want to make a recipe that has foot fungus images attached to it. It’s a disgusting trick that ad people use. They blow off your post and make the image so disgusting that people can’t help but click on the ad just to see what’s on the other side.

Equally disgusting is the financial analyst who downgraded You Tube’s shares because the big companies didn’t like where their ads were being placed. Yeah right. They didn’t like it, but they engage in the very same tactics. And who tattled? Oh! A Brit! No surprise there. It probably was British Secret Intelligence Service (what are they called MI6?) having a bland afternoon and decided to stir the stink.

So what is a person to do? What does the person who is not a big company nor even a little company do with all those thorns in their sides, put there by unscrupulous companies and ad agencies?

Follow this thread and you’ll be seeing soon enough. I don’t know much about Audi, but I have a lot to say about McDonald’s and AT&T.

WAKE UP IRON CHEF

According to the Chairman (person) of the American Iron Chef food network cooking show, an Iron Chef must respect the ingredients.

How does one show respect for the animal they murder for their plate, or many times, via Japan, eat alive?

They use the word respect often. Respect for regional tastes as an example. Respect for what otherwise would be called tradition, so that I’m assuming they want people to keep slaughtering and eating those they slaughter.

Since when do chefs give the diner what they want? The chef creates the menu, not the diner.

How can you respect a chef who murders for you? Or how can you respect a diner who demands it?

There is no honor in hypocrisy and contradiction. There is no honor in deception. There is no honor in murder.

Animal chefs are not honorable.

People are calling for this ‘sexist’ and ‘degrading’ advert to be removed

“Degrading” Saint Laurent Campaign Under Fire by French Ad Watchdog

 Kristina Rodulfo, Elle c7ba0b49997c673509efc72b3ff43813

Finish reading: People are calling for this ‘sexist’ and ‘degrading’ advert to be removed


CNAP COMMENT: What are they selling in this advertisement? Roller skates, sexy stools, fish net stockings, perfume, a weight loss plan, children for sale for sex? Spiked shoes? Can you buy online? Gay designers like to make bitches out of straight women? Gay designers want to degrade children by choice of models?

Roller skates connote child.

Skinny, breastless connotes child.

Bending over a stool without having to be tied connotes submission, complaint, lifeless = child.

Child sex is nothing new to the French nor to children of French culture.

Time to change what needs to be changed, wouldn’t you say?

Yves Saint Laurent!!!!!

Why no fur? OMGod, there is fur. I barely noticed it. Right in front of me it was all the time.

I actually went to google to research whether Yves Saint Laurent uses fur in their ads and this same ad popped up. Fur. White. Don’t know the animal you stole it from, right off his/her back while still alive, but it looks like a dead now animal. Maybe it is faux fur?

Think wherever your mind wants to take you will be their artistic reply. No. That’s not going to happen. I demand to know if that fur came from an animal or not? Truth in advertising is what we call it. If you’re in the ad business, then you know the drill.

So that’s what you’re selling? Fur coats, stoles, for children? This is beginning to sound a little like Michelle Obama going on the television program called Junior Chefs, where they’re taught to use every part of the animal. At a very young age, they’re expose to all the guts. For Valentine’s Day or some holiday about hearts, they had to cook a real heart taken from an animal. The slaughter industry is working with Michelle Obama to indoctrinate children into becoming animal chefs and eating all parts of all animals. With a few veggies thrown in to make it look Kosher and all, they’ll fool everybody while keeping the youth of the world addicted to the flesh and blood.

Obama is going to be a judge. How does being First Lady qualify her for that? She never worked that garden at the white house. Those were photo ops. She’s no farmer and she’s no chef either.

Yves Saint Laurent is using the young girl image as an indoctrination tool to make young girls into sex slaves and consumers of fur.

Gay designers need to stop humiliating children and women through their so-called art. It is obscene and no longer acceptable in this world. It’s called slavery in case you conveniently thought you could portray girls any way you like, as long as you call it art. What you do is not art. It’s indoctrination into slavery.

If you’re going to put a fur coat on a child image, to sexually entice men to buy whatever you’re selling, then we need to plan a funeral.

You know what needs to change. Change it.

The ARPP rules regarding advertising in France need to state that advertisements should maintain “dignity and respect in representation of any animal including humans”.

I WANT AN ANIMAL-FREE MALL

MALL SKETCH

I WANT AN ANIMAL-FREE MALL

That’s right. A mall. Animal-free. A big one. With lots of glitter and big lights. With every kind of shop. Grocery, bakery, deli, shoe store, pet supply shop, clothes, hair salon using only cruelty-free products, and on and on, restaurants too. Good ones. I have a vision. And it’s a nice one. No fur, no leather, no skins, and those who enter must wear all animal-free attire. This place has rules. No cruelty here. Yes, that’s right. That’s what I want. A happy place too. No vegetarian snobbery. There’s no place for arrogance in the animal-free world of Sharon Lee. No suffering looks on the faces of people who feel they’re being deprived.

Now that I mention it, I see that on a lot of vegetarian faces. Faces that still have Big Mac lines on them, so it’s not the deprivation causing the look. But it’s there. Maybe it’s the prejudice and discrimination directed at such folks that makes them so unhappy, especially when they’re doing something so right.

It’s okay to have fun while you do what’s right. It’s okay to laugh. God, my God, wants happiness. Every burst of laughter coming from one of It’s animal’s mouths delight’s It to no end. That’s one more frown It doesn’t have to turn upside down. So, laugh. Have fun. Enjoy your life. Just don’t kill the animals. That’s all. Not a lot to ask. And don’t participate by eating the catches of other people. If you do, try harder next time, till you get it right. I’m tired and sick and fed up and depressed (that doesn’t mean I’m not happy) over walking down the aisles of death in every supermarket in the world.

I’m offended and pained at being forced to view and smell the tortured, dismembered bodies of my animal friends. When is it all going to end? Entrepreneurs is what we need. Animal-free entrepreneurs. People with dreams. Big ones. Investors with money that flows in a cruelty-free world. Not just the small, never grow any bigger, shops sprouting up here and there. Though that’s a start and we have to start somewhere, so we’ll support them too. But bigger stores, and big chains of every conceivable market transformed into animal-free.

Fast food. Animal-Free Chefs. Veggie Burgers. Veggie Deli’s. Veggie Pizza Parlors. No animals nor animal products. Veggie cheese. Plant meats that taste like baloney, ham and turkey, but without the suffering. We don’t need featherless chickens; we need to free the chicken. International animal-free cuisines. I’m tired of having my animal-free products supplied by purveyors of torture. Why should I have to eat my vegetarian meal in a slaughterhouse? Why should I have to buy my clothes at a slaughterhouse? Aren’t you sick of it too? Being given your little vegetarian or vegan corner of somebody else’s house of cruelty? Just to satisfy a small segment of the market? Small segment?

Well, it wouldn’t be so small if more animal-free entrepreneurs with big ideas and big investors gave people what they really wanted: a cruelty-free world, which means a cruelty-free shopping mall. We could do it if we’d stop thinking so small. Big. Think big. Demand big. Stop trying to get your animal-free products in slaughterhouses. How absurd. Build your own stores. Start small if you want, but grow, by golly, grow. Give the people what they want before they ask for it. You know what people want. You’ve been silent too long. Too complacent. Okay, ‘I guess I’ll take whatever vegetarian crumbs they throw my way’ type of silence.

Plan the future. Make the future. See the future through God’s eyes. See big. See beautiful. I want an animal-free shopping mall. And then another, and another till we put the slaughterhouse malls out of business. Till we close the doors on the business of cruelty. I want an animal-free mall. And, I know you want it too. One for all people–and all other animals too. No zoo here, but a place where our animals can come shopping with us. Day care, mall care, for our furry family members while we shop. A mall with style, flair, with sparkle and bright lights. I can see it. I know you can too. Cause I’m looking through God’s eyes now and so are you.
