After Kaepernick Ad, Nike Shares Hit a High

15 Sep 2018 07:33 #365333 by chairman
Despite the backlash (including people destroying gear and calling for a boycott) to its Colin Kaepernick ad campaign, Nike appears to be doing OK. Case in point: Nike shares reached an all-time high of $83.49 on Friday, CBS reports. Far from hurting sales, the ad campaign seems to be helping them. Between the Sunday of Labor Day weekend and the following Tuesday, sales grew 31%, compared with 17% the year before, Market Watch reports. Though, Bloomberg notes, it could be months before the full impact of the ad campaign is known, and the increased sales in early September don't account for how a boycott by some will play out in the long run. Some other metrics: After the campaign was released, Nike gained some 170,000 new Instagram followers, Christopher Svezia, an analyst, tells CBS. Also, polling data found that 29% of young men would buy Nike products because of the ad, which, per Svezia, is connecting "in a way that is authentic, culturally relevant, experiential, and emotionally engaging." (Mayor has rescinded his Nike ban.

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.

more false flag something here....a lie. they always lie

Nike wud have done its own quite surveys they went out and spent a ton of money on an ad featuring Kaepernick. Nike would never have done it unless they knew what the result would be

Nike knows that the american people are no longer what they used to be. with my own eyes I see things like

the Black american population is like half black not 12% like deh always talking. that is patent nonsense when one goes inside america and see the population for themselves

also the american population is increasingly mixed black and white. that is now a powerful element in America..brown people coming out of the woodwork into the light of day. that is why they got Obama elected because... he could and would be elected by population composition and votes.

this is what they do..they liie on the surface while they keep up to the minute stats on the population and all there i to know about the population. they know the economy has failed and what it would produce socially. they know the people will be pissed and become revolutionary. they are exploiting that too. a lot of aspects that come out in a revolutionary people they know so they look for these and actually bring them forward

they know socialism would be right to the front..SOCIAL CHANGE! so they have invested that too by Bringing Bernie Sanders to the front lines. Sanders is a fake. so is Ocasio and the other mixed Black female Senator what's her name?

there are socialist coming out of the political woodwork but they are all fake..rich people, upper middle class people not connected to the people in organic ways at all, they will lead the people astray...the whole political frame is fake with few exceptions..hopefully TULSI GABBARD is not fake. she looks the read deal but no one is interfering with her..and that worries me. if she is sincere they do into have her under control and she is building her base and administrative group they have a problem. yet Gabbard is out there doing her thing and she seems safe, her life protected.


the american people love such as Kaepernick. they want social change, would change ameican from the ground up right now. well the criminal rich are right up in there doing its best to miss direct that and used it to further control of the people not to ease it up of take it off the people

look at how american has changed.

if there is an issue in that nations eye...television,, the media is just as likely, maybe even more likely currently to call up a black expert to comment and explain as they are to call up a white one.

Serena gets beaten by Osaka..there is the presentation by the USA LTA..a huge powerful organisation..look who runs it..the most beautiful healthy looking black woman imaginable..right there on the media screen.

look around..black people right up there running everything. but they are rich black people, upper class black people and they look it. but what happen' to the blacks in jail...who talking about them, looking out for them...the ordinary blacks on the streets shot by the cops..etc etc etc?

the rich blacks are not concerned in the least about ordinary blacks that's why. in many cases the cops who oppress blacks are blacks themselves. there are black police chiefs all across america..black policemen...tons and tons of them. how is it then that blacks get oppressed by the cops when the cops are black themselves?

and that is the same question all along the way...how black american power is obviously growing and blacks still getting wood?

well its class all along the way also..class. rich people regardless of color don't care about poor people. the black class divide is opening wider each day. :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: allyuh doh blink!

allyuh might miss it
