Nike and Converse (which is owned by Nike) just held their #LawEnforcementAppreciationDay on May 13th, and the community had a strong stance in light of recent killings by police officers in urban communities including Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore, Maryland. If you’re not sure of what I’m talking about then you can do a simple google search and you’ll get all the information you need.

The promotion requires any member of Law Enforcement to simply show their badge or a valid I.D. at the time of purchase and they will receive 30% off that purchase. Many people on social media have had strong words for Nike’s decision to do this, including well know U.S. activist Deray Mckesson:

Nike has issued the following statement in response to public outcry over its Law Enforcement Day promotion: “Nike has held discount days in its stores for first responders, including law enforcement and the military, since 9/11. Nike has no intention to offend anyone, nor to imply that we are insensitive to the serious and important issues between law enforcement and black communities in America. We care about and support efforts to continue discussions to create positive change and bring equality for everyone in our society.”

This post is not meant to stir the pot or create any controversy regarding Law Enforcement in the U.S., we would just like to know what you think of Nike’s actions to continue with their promotion. Should they have cancelled it all together or was it a good idea that they went ahead with it? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
