Black Money Matters: Nike Shares Reach All Time High Following Colin Kaepernick Ad

Published: Sunday 16th Sep 2018 by David

Colin Kaepernick‘s heroic bid to combat the systemic abuse of black people saw him blacklisted by the National Football League and lose his livelihood.

Now, after his racially prejudiced detractors hoped his ousting from the League would ruin him, they have learned that God had other plans.

Good news below…

Horrified by the injustices his community is unfairly belaboured by, Colin joined forces with Nike to spread his message of equality via a partnership which sees him stand tall as its new brand ambassador.

How said union is faring? Brilliantly.

For, thanks to support the brand garnered from the African-American community (most of whom support Colin’s quest), the company has learned that it share prices are now at an all time high!

Nike, a member of the blue-chip Dow index, finished at $83.47 on Thursday, its highest-ever closing price, prompting applause on Twitter from basketball star and self-professed “#NikeLifer” LeBron James.

The new record came 10 days after Nike unveiled a sweeping new “Just Do It” marketing blitz featuring Kaepernick, who has been effectively blacklisted from the National Football League after protesting racism in law enforcement.

Shares of Nike were up slightly at $83.51 in midday trading on Friday.Online sales for Nike rose 31 percent from the Sunday to Tuesday over the Labor Day holiday weekend period that included the Kaepernick ad, which quickly went viral after being teased on social media on the night of Monday September 3.

Edison Trends shared…

There was speculation that the Nike/Kaepernick campaign would lead to a drop in sales but the data does not support that theory.

    This is amazing

    • Fancy BISH September 16, 2018

      Yes! I was disgusted by the actions of some people burning Nike apparel and shoes…as IF…black and brown people have been spending millions of dollars on countless brands for decades not really knowing which side they truly side on when it comes to racial issues! It feels extremely good knowing where Nike stands! Besides, let’s not act like black and brown people aren’t the ones making certain brands COOL to wear in the first place! 😎 Yeah, I SAID IT. So happy for Colin!

    I couldn’t be happier. To all the edomites that were burning there Nike products thinking it would start a trend and lead to the downfall of Nike hope they see this. It’s crazy that certain individuals wanna discuss why you shouldn’t kneel for the flag but completely side step WHY he was doing it. Congrats kap ✊🏾

      This! ✅ 💯

    Hopefully Nike is going to be putting some of that money back into the community that is showing so much support (if they aren’t already).

      Most black communities are run by black corrupt politicians and none of that money would help the civilians in black neighborhoods. Why do you think ALL black neighborhoods have bad school districts. Why do you think most black neighborhoods have high crime?

      It is better that money help black college students.

        Stop impersonating me demon! Go away u f.uckng white trash devil.

        I’m black and I try to support black owned businesses but I find the level of care, customer service, professionalism, pace of service, and cleanliness is often subpar compared to other minority owned budinesses. There is a certain slowness with most black owned businesses I do not have time for most of the time

      • Rasputia Latimore Is TIRED of white trash demon Danzou BEGGING to Eat Her Box and Impersonating Her September 16, 2018

        I am not black I just beg that I am, remember my modelling pictures i’m Middle Eastern and Asian and very proud of it.

      Or black colleges…or black neighborhoods…

      • Rasputia Latimore Is TIRED of white trash demon Danzou BEGGING to Eat Her Box and Impersonating Her September 16, 2018

        Black colleges don’t give enough scholarships, the tuition is super expensive, there is no instate discounts, and they are not in tier 1!

        Black neighborhoods carry a stigma of being ghetto because of all the crime and undesireables living there.

        Thus, investing in black neighborhoods and black colleges are a waste of money! Invest in affluent neighborhoods with good school districts and you will have a safer neighborhood to live in and a better chance of equity gains. Go to a tier 1 state school on a scholarship and you will have more job opportunities with much less debt. You can always visit the hood where blacks live to party and make friends at the black colleges hut you certainly don’t want to live in their neighborhood or go to one of their schools if you want to make savy intelligent investments!

        I should know I’m a model remember…

    Do White people remember the video, ”Secrets of selling to negros”(1954) remember white America you brainwashed us to believe your brands are number one. You brainwashed us to assume what you had is the top of the line. It very sad we are the majority that spends and helps build the economy, and we can’t help our own entrepreneurs and business. White America should have know better than to protest their own brand.

      Nobody is entitled to my money just because they are black.

      LOL @ Black people being the majority and spending the most to boost the economy…

      1. Black people are a minority in our country,
      2. Black people do NOT spend more $$ than other races
      3. Stop being a racist moron.

  8. blue September 16, 2018

    why the divisiveness. nowhere does it say that the surge is due to black people only. a lot of people from different races have shown support for Colin and instead of making it their Victory, you exclude them.

    it defeats the purpose of all this.

    • Bravo!! September 17, 2018

      Latinos & blacks

  9. xyz September 17, 2018

    Come on, as if white people do not support this. There are a lot of whites who supports Nike because of this and because they hate all the racist s*** of trump. Not all whites are supporters of his „politics“

    • RihSlayedBey September 17, 2018

      None of Trump’s policies are racist, you are just too dumb to do your own research.

  10. Dma September 17, 2018

    Yes. I’ve been in NIKE head to toe all weekend.

    • Rasputia Latimore Is TIRED of white trash demon Danzou BEGGING to Eat Her Box and Impersonating Her September 17, 2018

      It must feel good to pay less.
