Nike Pulls “Betsy Ross” Shoes- Flag is Used by Hate Groups
July 2, 2019 8:45 PM Subscribe
Nike is shelving a plan to sell sneakers emblazoned with images of an early version of the American flag after former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick complained to the company. Various conservatives are having conniptions over Nike wisely realizing its mistake, with Arizona's governor threatening to withdraw tax incentives to Nike to build in AZ. The problem isn't the flag itself per-say, but the fact that multiple hate groups including III% and the KKK have used the "Betsy Ross" flag as a logo or as letterheads. Betsy Ross herself is largely a myth, and is unavailable to comment.
