    This the "Betsy Ross" flag:

    This flag is often said to be the first version of our current "stars and stripes" flag, and its design is commonly attributed to some lady named Betsy Ross. The thirteen stars represent the thirteen original colonies, much like the 50 stars on our current flag represent our 50 states.

    So Nike wanted to celebrate Independence Day 2019 by putting this outdated flag on some of its shoes. The shoes look like this:

    But Colin Kaeprenuk had other ideas because he thinks the flag is racist.
    Here's the story:

    ^^^ This is Colin Kaepernick, if you didn't know. He's the guy who kneels at the National Anthem. The NFL player.

    So it looks like Kurrpenik has thoroughly cucked Nike. Since they apparently already made and shipped the shoes, Nike probably lost a metric shit ton of money. But its okay because they appeased some guy who is 1/8 black, tops. Good job, Nike.

    The real question is how can I get some of these? Srsly those look dope AF. I wonder how much a pair goes for. Lemme know if you see any.

    Anyway, happy early Fourth of July.

    Discuss.

    This story does not matter because I am uninterested in it.

    Obviously racist. Designer of the shoes and all executives who approved this footwear need to be expunged from Earth immediately.

    Is that the failed backup qb who wasn’t good enough to play so he and his militant gf manufactured outrage as a publicity stunt?...

    lol at that clown deciding what shoes go on the market

    I can't feel bad for Nike though. You reap what you sow, and this is what happens when you choose activists over athletes to endorse your brand

    I'm not American. Is there a legit reason why this Betsy Ross flag is more offensive to minorities, or is it just another case of liberals being pussies?

    [email protected] Kaepernick completely cucking Nike and the NFL. This dude is great hustler. Do your thing, young brother.

    The majority of those original 13 colonies did allow slavery, don't see how it isn't a stretch to say that the flag representing those times would be a throwback to slavery-support.

    Can't fly the Nazi flag without the Jews getting in a tizzy about it
