SHOCK DETAILS: Kaepernick Donated $25K to Group That Honors Convicted Cop Killer

Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is adored by the mainstream media for taking a stand (by kneeling) against civil injustice.

That’s probably why Nike decided to make him the face of their 30th anniversary of the “Just Do It” slogan.

What Nike didn’t know, or maybe did know but didn’t care, was that Colin donated $25,000 to a group that honors a convicted cop killer.

Once people learn about this, it’s likely even more Nike’s will go up in flames.

From Daily Mail:

Colin Kaepernick’s $25,000 donation to a charitable group honoring a convicted cop killer has been revealed.

Kaepernick’s foundation made the donation to Chicago-based Assata’s Daughters, named after former Black Liberation Army member Assata Shakur, in April as part of a $1million charitable pledge.

Shakur was convicted of first-degree murder in the 1973 shooting death of New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster and sentenced to life in prison, but staged a daring jailbreak and now lives as a fugitive in Cuba.

Continued:

Kaepernick, who is well known for his protests against police during the national anthem as a former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, made the donation as part of his pledge to donate $100,000 a month for 10 months to ‘organizations working in oppressed communities’.

Assata’s Daughters was founded in 2015 to ‘develop and train young people, ages 4-19, in the Black queer feminist tradition and in the spirit of Assata,’ according to the group’s website.

Is Nike’s gamble paying off? Tucker Carlson debates…

Because of their association with Kaepernick, does this put Nike in bed with the group that honors Assata Shakur, too?
