White mediocrity, and their racism, never fail to surprise me.
“Trolls on the notorious site’s /pol (a.k.a. “politically incorrect”) forum have been circulating fake Nike coupons for “people of color,” USA Today reports. The coupons, which feature photos of Kaepernick, promise massive discounts on Nike shoes and apparel for non-white folks and “urban youth” who use them in-store, claiming Nike rolled out the deal “to show solidarity with the things we believe in.” Obviously, they’re totally bogus.
Aside from being blatantly racist, the coupons might actually be trying to incite violence. According to Snopes, scan the QR code on one of them—say, if you’re a Nike store employee—and you’ll see the following message: “This is a ROBBERY, Move slowly and put all the LARGE bills in the shoe box OR everyone DIES.”
According to USA Today, Nike knows about the coupons, and it’s warned all of its US retail outlets to watch out for them. Meanwhile, the trolls over at /pol are congratulating themselves for making headlines with the racist scam—though as Jack Gillis, executive director of the Consumer Federation of America, told USA Today, “scam” doesn’t quite cover it.”
I love when racist whites say they’re American and patriotic. There’s nothing more un-Patriotic than dividing your own country.
Following all of the yakubian devils destroying their Nike sneakers and apparel in protest of protesting racial injustice and police brutality in America, Nike’s stock has risen to an all-time high. Good job, racist assholes.
