Thanks Nike. You’ve created a monster. Or a diva.
Former NFL quarterback and unlikely activist Colin Kaepernick has filed to trademark a black and white image of his face, which will be the logo for many products he intends to sell in the future.
The trademark filing says the image is intended for “everything from shampoo and hairspray to jewelry and lampshades,” reports ESPN, as well as “classes, workshops, seminars, and camps in the field of self empowerment and awareness to properly interact with law enforcement.”
Kaepernick’s website began selling “#ImwithKap” items last month, raising money for his charity organization, Know Your Rights Camp. Nike reportedly signed him to a new deal that will allow him to sell more Kaep-themed apparel, which may explain the newly trademarked graphic.
As much as I dislike Kaepernick, I must admit this is a smart move. He’s taking advantage of his fame as well as his very distinct and recognizable visage to build his business and charity.
Smart as it may be, I won’t be buying any of his products.
Anyone who cashes in on being against America doesn’t deserve a single U.S. dollar heading his way. This activism-for-profit model might work, but it’s still despicable.
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
