Speaking of birds, this is the best bird in the face of those angry birds. Nike has nothing to lose when itty bitty folks like this set fire to expensive gear. That makes them- and the folks who support them- even more powerful. Americans have no clue how vast the empires of these brands actually are. And ultimately, and here’s the REAL slap in the face as you have so eloquently pointed out, how meaningless these people and their widdle tennis shoe bonfires are. Colin speaks for one hell of a lot of folks. All over the world.

Its tantamount to having a bunch of folks stomp their MickeyDs into the pavement because they don’t like Ronald McDonald.

If anything these protests are likely to drive MORE Nike sales among the very people Nike knows are its base. That makes Kaepernick, and Nike, even more powerful and influential.

Now that is Just. Plain. Perfect.
