Alveda King, a conservative pundit and pro-life advocate, appeared on Fox Business to question the quarterback’s knowledge of the American flag maker after Nike announced that it was pulling a shoe after he raised concerns.
‘I am not so sure brother Kaepernick even totally understands who Betsy Ross is,’ Alveda King said on Wednesday.
‘It’s kind of unfortunate that we are fighting over sneakers when we should be celebrating living in the best country on the planet.’
She added that ‘restoration, renewal, forgiveness and communication’ were effective means to achieve progress.
While she stressed that she found the shoes to be cute, King also speculated that ‘Betsy Ross may or may have not designed the flag.’
King also added that the company’s decision to pull the shoe added to the division happening in the country.
