I believe the word you're having trouble assimilating and understanding is the one you used to base your meme upon: "hypocrisy".

FTFY

It's funny how people put the NFL on a pedestal when they enjoyed tax-free and monopoly status for so many years and cost billions to the country for free stadiums.

Nike's a monopoly? Sheesh, I guess we should alert Adidas, Reebok, ASICS, Converse, and the rest.

I know quite a few Nike employees. They seem pretty happy at Nike, what would they protest? Ohhh...I suppose you are hoping they protest Nikes support of someone protesting police shooting blacks unjustly? Yeah no, Nike doesn't have a large KKK contingent. Maybe some of the temps....

Don't get carried away now. lmao I personally think he is a blundering fool for ruining his career and destroying his dreams and aspirations. Give it just a little time for the shock factor to wear off in the public and he will soon be forgotten only to be brought up once in a while by somebody trying to push an agenda. The media will find something else to go on and on and on about before long.

Fascinating indeed. They've been beaten by the very system they protest and don't even know it. This topic is testimate to it.
