He’s no different from the oppressor profiting from black death, pain and suffering… coopting, making it all about him and his to sell… everything from candles and shampoo to self empowerment and ” awareness to properly interact with law enforcement”. Nike was just the beginning,
“Kaepernick is considering using the mark on a wide variety of items, from candles and shampoo bottles to clothes, mugs and backpacks. He may also use the mark in conjunction with “providing classes, workshops, seminars and camps in the field of self empowerment and awareness to properly interact with law enforcement” and the “production of television shows and films,” according to USPTO records.
The trademark application, which was first reported by ESPN, comes a little more than a month after Kaepernick was featured in a Nike advertising campaign.
Kaepernick, who remains a free agent and has filed a collusion grievance against NFL owners, also sought to previously trademark “I’m With Kap” for use on clothing. That application was filed in August.”
