MINNEAPOLIS—For a limited time only, residents can get 100% discount at Minneapolis Nike store when they use the promo code #justice.
Nike is running the promotion after the killing of 20-year-old Daunte Wright on Sunday during a police traffic stop and may extend it indefinitely after the verdict of the Derek Chauvin trial is announced.
Since the Wright shooting, crowds of protesters have gathered outside the Minneapolis Nike stores awaiting the announcement of the discount.
A Nike spokesman says that they are running the promotion for anyone affected by systemic racism in the United States.
“Whenever black people are shot by police, it’s an injustice and we hope to alleviate any injustice by letting people destroy our stores and take our stuff,” the spokesman said.
President* Biden has promised to make it illegal for police to arrest any black person for any crime ever in response to the incident.
