”The statements made on our earnings call were describing the factors that impact our business and we sincerely apologize to anyone that thought they were divisive Cheap Vincent Valentine Jersey ,” it said. ”That definitely was not our intention.

”We believe in the right to protest inequality and support the players’ movement to create a new platform for change. We also believe, as Americans Cheap Trey Flowers Jersey , we should honor our anthem. There is a way to do both.”

The movement was started last year by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who kneeled to protest what he said was police mistreatment of blacks.
