Nike pulls shoe after Kaepernick expresses issue with ‘Betsy Ross Flag’
Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick took issue with Nike’s new Air Max 1 Fourth of July themed sneaker as it featured the controversial slave era flag on the heel. Nike decided to pull the shoe, saying it was racially insensitive and could unintentionally offend and detract from the nation’s holiday. The shoe had already been distributed to different retailers and despite the company getting a majority of the product back, some are being resold online for as much as $2,500. RT America’s Steve Christakos joins Scottie Nell Hughes to discuss.
