If you don’t think the Kaepernick kneeling issue is political, you’d be wrong. Liberals support the kneeler-in-chief, while moderates and conservatives overwhelmingly support standing for the National Anthem. Kaepernick has used his “social justice” movement to sell his supporters $170 jerseys and he scored a multi-million dollar contract with Nike. The social justice business is booming, to say the least.
But civil rights activist Shaun King thinks a southern sheriff used Kaepernick’s Nike deal to humiliate recent inmates, even though the sheriff denies that the mugshots were any kind of protest against the former quarterback. Take a look at the pics below and tell us what you think.
Daily Snark reports:
he Union County sheriff’s office in Arkansas has come under fire for forcing inmates to wear Nike T-shirts for mug shots. The reasoning?
The motive comes on the back of the sporting giant using former NFL QB turned activist Colin Kaepernick as a face of their ‘Just Do It.’ campaign.
Presumably, in order to paint the company in a negative light, the office would force inmates to wear the Nike products in attempt to paint the Nike’s costumer demographic as criminals.
Writer and civil rights activist Shaun King shared an image of various mug shots of inmates wearing the shirts on Twitter.
