Key Words: Nike pulls new sneaker after Kaepernick complains, and Arizona’s governor takes action against ‘shameful’ decision

Nike NKE, -0.53% kicked off another controversy this week when it announced that it’s canceling a new sneaker featuring an early American flag after former NFL star Colin Kaepernick complained the symbolism is offensive.

The noted Anthem-kneeler isn’t the first to have a problem with the so-called Betsy Ross flag, which, according the NAACP, has been appropriated by white supremacist groups in recent years. In 2016, a Michigan school superintendent issued an apology after students waved the flag at a high-school football game.

The governor of Arizona, however, doesn’t see it that way.

‘Instead of celebrating American history the week of our nation’s independence, Nike has apparently decided that Betsy Ross is unworthy, and has bowed to the current onslaught of political correctness and historical revisionism.
