Excited to Report Colin Kaepernick’s Nike Commercial Drops During NFL Opener —

“The person said Nike will feature Kaepernick on several platforms, including billboards, television commercials and online ads. Nike also will create an apparel line for Kaepernick, including a signature shoe, and contribute to his Know Your Rights charity. The deal puts Kaepernick in the top bracket of NFL players with Nike.”

And let us not forget, Nike provides all NFL teams with both game day wear and other apparel, such as sideline wear. The partnership between the two was extended in March to run through 2028.

I think it’s both very depressing how heartless, selfish and mindless people are outraged at people who want to draw attention to an on going evil, especially to this degree. I would say it is almost funny but…it’s not funny at all, really. It’s tragic and the racism in this country that is tolerated -by the government alone- leads me to think about what the beautiful soul of Malcolm X said about civil rights vs human rights. Perhaps it is time to begin reaching for what he spoke of and was working on; appealing to the international community for assistance… Things since he was working for justice and equality have only grown more complex, but I also think in some ways we have an upper hand now.

But I digress. Back to those of you mad at Nike and Kaepernick for doing the right thing. 

It’s so funny how many people are hating on Nike now; such as in Denver one store is “clearing out” their Nike stock in, and I quote, “protest.” Yeah. Nike’s losing a lot of sleep over having a clear conscience.

If you are going to protest, make it something worth while like, oh, I don’t know, protesting innocent men, women and children being murdered or beaten, seems like a nice and moral place to start. That and/or demanding these killers do not walk free. Refusing to accept them being treated as innocent the entire trial IF it makes it that far. Paid vacations for killers… All because they protect you and you have no reason to fear them? Hmmm… what about those they don’t serve OR protect?

People are outraged over the display Kaepernick in particular is making. Why should I respect a government or the traditions held by many american’s when this country, the law enforcement here, they don’t give a damn about what they do to others. The good hearted will speak out, and get fired. Is this really an american tradition I want to follow? Hell no. How can any of you really think this “american tradition” is more outrageous than humane treatment, equality and justice?

Police vow to “serve and protect”— wait, I’ll say it this way as it reminds me of a post I came across earlier. Some guy was complaining about all the negativity towards cops. He said something like, “meanwhile, the police save thousands a day and no one pays attention” or something. So I replied, in part, with what I reply to this, “it’s disrespecting the national anthem and the american tradition,” BS:

“And meanwhile, not happening in any legal jurisdiction but once a year, police officer kills and is actually punished for his crime. being sworn to protect the people, not slaughter them, one murder by a cop should carry a heavy sentence unless he can prove he was not to blame. police in america can be caught on camera killing and walk away with nothing. or go buy and sell the gun they used to kill an unarmed human with. police are never in the wrong in america, except with people who want justice…and that doesn’t happen. so stop whining as though you really have it bad. try being a fishermen. they die more often than police while working as do others. and defending is different from what police do. the few i have seen do good were fired. real just system. “

Point of that comment post is… 1) all the players who haven’t or don’t join in protest against a wrong that has been done in one form or another; under one name or another, for hundreds of years, every last one of them should feel a great deal of shame fopolice brutality police killings racism is not new cameras are newr not being man enough to do what they could… If all players protested even just in the NFL, think of how things would change… Money forces change. But money also made some too damn blind; or perhaps they already were.

Either way, no real man would just look away, letting victims of the inhumane, unethical and on going homicides continue to be targets. Moreover, they are saying it is acceptable behavior to NOT punish those who abuse and/or murder if they have a blue shield in front of them. It’s okay, they are saying, to not have law enforcement not report to the FBI annually the number of people who have lost their lives. 

I am so grateful Nike has made the choices they have… They have selected NFL opening night as the night to air the first “Just Do It” commercial with Mr. Colin Kaepernick and others. Apparently Nike, as the following article describes, has always pushed for athletes to strive for more. Their actions give me reason to believe that rich as Nike as a company and such may be, they thus far are proving they actually are on the side of justice.

That being said, I’ll end my rant here and let you read on about the latest with Nike and Kaepernick. I hope others will come through…  And that includes anyone reading this as well as myself… Be a hero, regardless of how popular or unpopular you are… Every good and every bad action matters. Do the right thing even if those around you are not…

 

Nike has unveiled its first “Just Do It” ad narrated by Colin Kaepernick, and a person familiar with the situation says the spot is scheduled to air during the NFL season opener on Thursday night and during football games throughout the season. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the airing have…

School Children & Innocence Stolen

Thoughts and Writings on Social Issues

Unequal policies such as these have led black girls to feel insecure and humiliated about their physical appearance, and subsequently can affect their ability to learn and feel comfortable in academic environments.” –Teen Vogue

As I spoke of in my first blog post I will be posting essays from a series of research I am collecting regarding numerous ways racism impacts Black children in America. The research came about because 1) I see how children are being treated and am appalled to say the least, 2) I see my family/friends and how their children are impacted, 3) I know this is not an isolated occurrence and yet still is being blatantly ignored. Clearly, the lack of attention concerning Black children and the aspect of racism in daily life being ignored is but one more huge red flag I refuse to ignore and do not understand how others can…

They Run on Lies, Stereotypes & Racism For No Truth Do They Speak

If anyone doubted racism in the system, this alone would awaken them; granted they wanted to be woke and were ready to face truth. There is no surprise these psycho’s would get this low; especially when their leader is a white extremist calling himself “president.”

Using the tactic of fear through religion, hate, ignorance as well as the legal lies the mainstream media makes available, they further isolate people when it is uniting that we should be doing. Of course they don’t want there to be peace; what do they have to profit from that?

Not to mention this “has been” a functioning operation and a reality in the not so distant past. To be more specific we know during the Cold War era the CIA controlled the media, forcing everything from false stories and reports be given to the American people all the way to subconscious ‘mind control’ via subliminal messages and images through the media, this also includes more blatant messages through television and other forms of media. There is no way the government truly is keeping other agencies under control; especially when you have a psychopath as a so called president.

Not to mention, it has even become legal for the media to lie, and it actually is but more on that next time, we still have the same hate rhetoric being taken in as fact by either the hate filled  or gullible people…or maybe they simply don’t care because it isn’t happening ‘to them’… SMH.

And here we are today. No changes except things have gotten a lot worse because too many are still asleep or unaware of the truth that rests before them if only they were to seek it.

As for this operation, during the Cold War unspeakable things happened to far too many people of most backgrounds… With who is sitting in the white house currently I do not believe the order to end Operation Mockingbird (decided at the 1977 hearings) has been or is honored today. Perhaps it gained a new name…sadly that’d really be all they would need to do, especially given most people say and do nothing.

Below is a piece of the story, followed by the link to the full. This needs to be news everyone is aware of so please share…

In one automated phone call heard by two media organizations, a man pretends to be Gillum speaking in stereotypical Black dialect while jungle music plays during the call.

“Well, hello there,” the call begins as the sounds of drums and monkeys can be heard in the background. “I is Andrew Gillum.”

“We Negroes . . . done made mud huts while white folk waste a bunch of time making their home out of wood an’ stone.”

The man promises to pass a law that will allow African-Americans to avoid arrest “if the Negro know fo’ sho’ he didn’t do nothin’.”

These automated calls are designed to promote fear among white voters in Florida and encourage them to support Gillum’s opponent, U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, a Republican who has been endorsed by President Donald Trumpand who supports Trump’s political ideology.

The recording ends with a man saying that the robocalls were paid for by the Road to Power, an Idaho-based website and podcast that promotes white supremacist and anti-Semitic content.

The robocalls are a clear indication of how racially incendiary the Florida governor’s race has become heading into the November mid-term elections. The campaign also underscores how Trump’s ongoing racial rhetoric has encouraged white supremacist groups to become more aggressive with promoting racist fear tactics like the robocalls.

DeSantis’ campaign spokesman, Stephen Lawson, called the robocalls “absolutely appalling and disgusting…and hopefully whoever is behind this has to answer for this despicable action.”

You’re Not Innocent Until Proven Guilty in America

While one of America’s biggest industries for profit steadily grows worse, state by state, law by law, I am amazed -for some reason- at how lazy Americans are…

In this country you are guilty and treated as such, as we see below in California’s new law against bail. In England, you are innocent until proven guilty. People will tell you that is how it is in the states also, but if it were the prison industry wouldn’t be an industry, to start out with. Secondly, we would see a lot different verdicts and finally, people would not be openly criminalized before even going to trial. And that’s just to start off with.

“In the United Kingdom system of Justice,one is presumed innocent. The burden of proving guilt rests always with the prosecution. The accused has the right not to testify and to be acquitted unless and until the prosecution has proven the case against him beyond any reasonable doubt.”

Slowly but surely steps are being taken to take away more and more rights of those they desire, and like sheep people will realize this, curse it and forget it… Action does work, we just need to take it…And get unified.

“Abolishing cash bail is a revolutionary change to the criminal justice system, and an issue activists have worked on for years. Supporters of the change say cash bail keeps too many poor people behind bars who pose no risk to the public, and that the bail industry engages in predatory lending, particularly toward poor communities of color.

Lawmakers worked on the bill’s final language for two years, but in its final form, some fear it will lead to more people behind bars than the old cash bail system.

“This bill unfortunately replaces that flawed system with one that could increase pretrial detention and increase racial disparity,” Jess Farris, criminal justice project director for the ACLU of Southern California, told BuzzFeed News.

The ACLU pulled its support from the law because of its reliance on risk assessments without ensuring transparency and other protections against racial bias. Farris added that risk assessments should be conducted by an independent agency, rather than probation officials, and the law should have put a preference on releasing people rather than jailing them.

“In our system, liberty should be the norm before you’re convicted of a crime,” she said. “

Exactly. Instead of punishing all, why not liberate and truly practice INNOCENT until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt?!

Oh, wait. I know why.
