A sporting goods store located in Colorado Springs, Colorado is none too pleased with Nike’s choice of Colin Kaepernick to represent the 30th anniversary of their “Just Do It” campaign.
In fact, they’re so unhappy about the whole thing that they are now removing all Nike products from store shelves, and owner Stephen Martin has a message for Kaepernick that sums up how most Americans feel about the whole situation.
The store currently has an entire wall, dedicated to Nike gear, and Martin is unsure if his store will be able to stay open without the athletic wear giant’s products.
“Pretty sure I won’t survive without them,” Martin said. “I gotta do what I gotta do. I’m just doing it.”[…]
The Prime Time Sports owner isn’t just making this bold move against Nike because of his own experiences. He believes that it’s important to draw attention to who the real heroes are.
Martin told the story about his father-in-law, who was a POW and was forced to watch his fellow soldiers be beaten and even killed, and he wasn’t able to intervene.
“He said the hardest part for me was watching his fellow soldiers get beat up and killed in front of him and he couldn’t defend them because it would have cost him his life,” Martin said.
“So Colin, you don’t know what sacrifice is, you just don’t know what it is, in my opinion.”
As you can see, this issue is not as small or as trivial as many individuals make it out to be. We’re talking about supporting an individual who repeatedly disrespects the flag, the Constitution, and all the brave men and women who have sacrificed much, some their lives, to ensure we have liberty.
Nike deserves to take a massive hit for their actions concerning this campaign.
