Does Nike make the performance walkers with Velcro closure? What will we wear if we boycott?

Laces. Just do it. And don't forget to double knot so you don't trip.

Rosa Parks was protesting segregation in the South, you know, where people were treated differently because of the color of their skin? And by her small, silent protest, she began to help others see that color should not matter. She is considered "the mother of the Civil Rights Movement." Racism still exists today. The kneelers want to make people aware of the continued Racism in America. Dr. Martin Luther King also knelt...

Catch Nike stock on the downside. This too will pass, and you may as well benefit with a few capital gains. This may be insider info, so be cautious.

How can race not be part of the discussion when the issue of racism is the very reason for the protests?

Furthermore, many veterans say that they enlisted in the armed services in order to help protect and defend the Constitutional right of Americans to their freedom of expression, whether or not they agree with the protest.

If you or I don't care for the kneeling, we don't have to watch it, nor do we have to buy Nike products. By the same token, individuals who recognize and/or sympathize with the reason for the protests, should not be vilified or condemned as anti-American. If you believe that only one point of view should be espoused as in totalitarian regimes, it can be argued that your views are unpatriotic, and anti-American.

Not liking NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem in no way means a person thinks oppression of any sort should be ignored.

A very big part of Nike is kids shoes and clothes. Parents need to bite the bullet and "explain" to their kids that even tho their peers may have Nike our family will never buy Nike products again. There are going to be Nike clad classmates "from the other side" who have been "explained" that taking a knee is a good thing. Morals and Dedication has deteriorated in our Beautiful Country.
