Corporate Sponsors of Racial Upheaval — Nike and Amazon — Targeted by Rioters

Supporting Looters is More Lucrative Than Denouncing Them

(Summit News) Despite their best efforts to corporate virtue signal in favor of the rioters and looters currently tearing apart American cities, both Nike and Amazon were targeted anyway.

Last week, Nike tweeted a video in which the company urged people, “Don’t turn your back on racism,” “don’t pretend there’s not a problem in America” and demanding people “be part of the change.”

Within days footage emerged of rioters looting a Nike store, which is undoubtedly one of several that have been targeted over the last few days.

There’s an added layer of irony to the footage when you consider the fact that Nike used Colin Kaepernick, the face of the “take a knee” campaign, for its 2018 commercial in which Kaepernick asserted, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything. Just Do It.”

Nike made $6 billion dollars from the ad, so they’re probably not too fussed about a handful of their stores being looted. Supporting looters is more lucrative than denouncing them, even at the cost of comparatively minor property damage.

Meanwhile, Amazon issued a statement declaring, “The inequitable and brutal treatment of black people in our country must stop. Together we stand in solidarity with the black community, our employees, customers, and partners – in the fight against systematic racism and injustice.”

They pledged their support for the rioters even as their own employees were being targeted by the mob.
