On July 1, Nike recalled their Betsy Ross Flag Air Max 1 USA sneakers because former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick said “he believed” it had “associations with an era of slavery.” One African family didn’t get the memo and proudly stood beneath the same flag to become American citizens.
From National Review:
Fode Bade did not know he was supposed to feel oppressed in the United States. However, as a native of Guinea, he certainly knew what oppression was. Entrenched poverty and periodic political violence plagued the African nation, and Bade’s survival to the next day was not guaranteed. In 2005, he came to the United States as a political refugee and was granted asylum. Free from the oppression of his native land, Bade prospered in America. And on July 4, he brimmed with pride as his four daughters and son became legal citizens of the United States at a special naturalization ceremony at the Betsy Ross House in Philadelphia.
Bade proudly stated, “I’m so grateful to this country.”
As part of “Welcome America,” Philadelphia’s annual weeklong July 4 celebration, 13 children became American citizens at a special ceremony at the Betsy Ross House. Thirteen children are selected to commemorate the original 13 colonies, and the venue is chosen in honor of the seamstress of the first United States flag featuring the stars and stripes. The ceremony is in its 15th year and features a swearing-in ceremony, patriotic decorations, colonial reenactors, and the symbolic ringing of a bell — one time by each of the children — to honor the 13 original colonies. “Coming here, being an American citizen is the greatest thing someone can have on this earth,” Bade told National Review.
NOTE FROM DML NEWS:
It’s all about money! Nike’s sales have only grown since running its ad campaign featuring former disgraced NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. So, when the radical athlete raised concerns over a sneaker featuring an early American flag, Nike immediately yanked the shoes from store shelves.
