Nike Caves: Removes All ‘Redskins’ Gear From Website


Nike seems to have caved to pressure from activists over the name of the Washington Redskins, and has removed all Redskins gear from their website.

“Last week, three letters signed by 87 different investment firms and shareholders asked Nike, FedEx, and PepsiCo to end their business relationships with the Washington Redskins until the team decides to change its name,” Fox 5 reported. “The investment firms and shareholders are worth a collective $620 billion.”

Following nationwide protests after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Adweek reports there has been renewed interest to get the team to change its name.

Last month, the team removed a monument commemorating former owner George Preston Marshall, who was the last NFL owner to integrate his team’s roster, from the front of RFK Stadium.

The letters were sent by First Peoples Worldwide, Oneida Nation Trust Enrollment Committee, Trillium Asset Management, LLC Boston Common Asset Management, LLC Boston Trust Walden Mercy Investment Services, and First Affirmative Financial Network, according to reports, along with an additional 80 firms and trusts.

Remember the old saying that”imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” having red skin represents being strong and brave, I never thought of it as anything but that, the little amount of time I spent thinking about it!

So they take a stand on the name Redskins, but they’re totally cool with running sweatshops and using child labor. How about Nike stop producing their products with child slave labor.
