Nike To Recognize Juneteenth As A Paid Holiday


Beginning this year, Nike will observe Juneteenth as an annual paid holiday, CEO John Donahoe said in an internal statement released to employees on Thursday.

Juneteenth, which takes place June 19, is a holiday celebrating when the last slaves found out about the Emancipation Proclamation. This holiday commemorates the end of slavery in the U.S.

The statement released by Nike said that observing the holiday serves as an “important opportunity to better commemorate and celebrate Black history and culture,” Forbes reported. Donahoe, who became CEO in January, also said Nike will launch a two-week diversity education program for employees next week.

  1. Kick kick. The black America world view does not share to shape but wits to brand. We see the ugly and who wants to smile.

    So new history is to note, but I discover that the harm is the physical body and being. Were we ever to just note that donning proper clothing matters? It does.

    Candidly, a jerk in a t-shirt is a jerk. Skin and state a jerk to avoid.

    The public must have presentation. I disagree even the caucasian jerk. I will not ever wear less than a collar shirt in Hashems America. These people are about 10 dollars wrong and 15 cents in the pig.

    Smoke a pipe.
