After a complaint from Colin Kaepernick, NIKE withdrew a sneaker that featured an image of the 13-star Betsy Ross flag. Kaepernick and others are claiming that the iconic flag -- considered by many to be the first official flag of the United States -- is somehow racist.
It took just hours for NIKE to bow to Kaepernick, and the shoes were pulled from the market.
+ + Let's Say NO to NIKE!
Grassfire is launching a "Just Say NO To NIKE" CITIZEN STATEMENT, rallying patriotic Americans to take a stand against NIKE and others who are determined to purge our nation under a false pretense of division and racism.
The Betsy Ross, 13-Star flag is considered one of the first official flags of the young American nation. Its circle star motif has long represented the Revolutionary War era and the amazing courage displayed by the patriots in the 13 colonies who risked "their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor" to create this great nation. Now, because anti-patriots like Kaepernick control companies like NIKE, NIKE has joined those who say anything and everything from our founding era must be discarded. Even our flag!
Thanks for the stand you are taking!
