Jenifer Lewis Wears Nike to the Emmy Awards


Earlier this month Nike chose exiled football player Colin Kapernick to front their 'Just Do It' 30th anniversary campaign, sparking boycotts by people opposed to Colin's peaceful national anthem protests against police brutality [click here if you missed that].    

Last night actress Jenifer Lewis wore Nike to the Emmy Awards...

We stay bothered smh damn it’s exhausting being black. They want me to support every retaliatory tactic, that shit exhausting and we wonder why we got high blood pressure. Let shit go... can’t fight every battle not unless u black. Now here’s the part Where I’m called a coon because I choose happiness instead of this draining bullshit. The script never changes. Never....

You can count on Jennifer to stand up for Black folk and she looks Jack Happy to me.

Great, support the company that sells overpriced shoes while paying wages of $2 a day. In 2018 and some Black folk still can't tell our power is being exploited.

STFU! You are the BIGGEST boot licking COON on earth. I see that you recognize it too.
Black folks as a whole will be better off when coons, sellouts, bootlicks like you are killed off.

Being black is exhausting but being beat down by a racist officer because he / she doesn't like your skin color, the car you drive or the neighborhood you are driving through is also exhausting. On top of all the other shit we can't do while being black, we now must add "Quiet Enjoyment in ones Apartment." It's a mental mind fuck and we are weary but here we are in 2018, fighting the good fight and trying to push for change. So when you pay your taxes, please note that your taxes are mixed in with White Boy Rick's taxes and Becky's taxes. But your tax dollars don't get you the same police protection, a better school system or better roads. And the kicker, sis? You probably pay MORE in taxes than they do! So yeah, we're all exhausted but that never stopped those before us. Strap on your Nike's and let's keep it moving. We have a way to go.

I love JL but she looks like a damn fool in that Nike shit at the Emmy's. Yeah yeah Nike supports Kap, ok I get it. But there's more to the Nike story, and for that reason this outfit is too much. She just wanted to piss off wypipo.

People really need to need to do some research. HE IS NOT THE MAN TPTB PORTRAYS HIM TO BE.

-research the crime he was accused of doing.
-research the Boule. He is a member of the Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity.
-research his appearance BEFORE he took a knee.
-why was he CHOSEN to be the face of the "take a knee" movement.

We are being manipulated EVERY second to see/react to situations the way TPTB wants us to. However, we are not going to be able to see every scheme but the more aware we become, maybe we can more easily recognize the manipulation.

Some of you sound like those damn crackers. If she wants to support Nike and you dont, it's cool. That's HER choice like it's your choice to complain about everything under the sun, good or bad.

Chrissy you not lying...this is a good look for this corporation to make money and they have been maximizing that potential. But Nike has been problematic forever, so if you support please know what you are supporting, the message is but one for looks, but what Nike does is for keeps...Marketing at it's finest.

0948 I've learned plenty about the guy, haven't seen anything problematic in the areas you're mentioning. Do tell....

Thank you
Those that are "tired" of fighting for our people will be the first ones to take the chip and line up for the fema camps

Come on yall,JL is the original! She crazy but she is real and that is to be noted. I will say though nike knows their relationship witht he black community black people made nike what it is! This is a marketing tool for nike to get them coins off the backs of blacks! lets also not forget about the asians who make their products and get paid pennies to do so. Nike can support all the black activist all they want but I dont see them building schools for black communities or investing inthe asians who make their products! at the end of the day this is a smart business move for nike. cause remember blacks are the number one consumers in the united states. So if you support things that are popular to black folks then they will support you.

She doesn't care that Nike uses children in sweatshops and pays then nothing. Hypocrite.

^ Asia needs to start giving a crap about their kids then.

L. Eller said...

Facts at 3:16. Tell those wanna be white supremacists over in Asia to stop exploiting their children. Black people always want to be on some inclusive shit when Asians steady beating our asses. Until we get our house in order, I could give a damn less about what Asians do to each other.
