Football Ratings Up, NFL players Kneel, and Trump Racism Rolls on...

Trump's American Great Again?

One of the coupons calls for consumers "To show solidarity with the things WE believe in we are offering people of color 75% off any purchase of Nike's shoes or apparel."

“I wouldn’t characterize this as a scam, but a full on racial epithet,” Jack Gillis, executive director of the Consumer Federation of America, said in an email. “This is nothing more than a dog whistle to a small, and unfortunate, segment of America. Another way to put it is that this is a racial statement masquerading as a scam.”

Some of the early fake coupons detailed by Snopes included a QR code that when scanned read, “This is a ROBBERY, Move slowly and put all the LARGE bills in the shoe box OR everyone DIES.”
