To Buy A Nike Shoe Is Like Spitting On Our Proud American History...

Censorship reigns supreme in today’s society, especially when it comes to respecting, honoring, or reminding citizens of the not-too-distant historical past that helped shape the nation for which they reside. A perfect illustration of that statement comes in the form of ex-football player Colin Kapernick advocating for the censorship of Nike’s Betsy Ross 13-star flag shoe, to which the mega-corporation obliged.
