You're trying to bring logic and values into an arena of emotions and partisanship. Keep it up and they'll call you a right winger.

This is a real quagmire. I salute a corporate taking a progressive stance on a touchy socio political issue, but yes, the sweat shops... err nuts

Is the corporation really taking a "progressive stance" by embracing CK or are they merely virtue signaling? If they really want to take a progressive stance they wouldn't use sweat shops.

I thought NIKE got called out on the sweatshops a while back and there was a massive protest and boycott... are they still practicing this? IF they are, this is a good way to raise awareness of their factory conditions with a controversial ad campaign.

What type of shoes do you wear?
lol

Dolphin safe, organic farm to feet handcrafted by rich folks in the Hamptons?
lol

Quit your trolling dude. Tell me about your shoes and then we’ll talk.

Also Nike is experimenting with 3D printed shoes so no actual people will have to make a living making making the shoes other than the dude slaving over the hot button that says “print”

This is quite literally a marketing ploy to sell merchandise. There's little altruistic about it.

Conservatives had zero issues with Nike's labor practices until yesterday. For that matter, Americans as a whole largely turn a blind eye to them, as they do with the companies who make their clothes, food, smartphones, appliances and countless other items they use every single day.

But somehow, we're supposed to single out Nike, because the Right's Reigning Boogeyman is getting a piece of the action.

Exactly, not only that, they are the ones who have worked hardest to eliminate labor laws here and making it easier for the largest corporations to get whatever breaks they wanted, where ever they wanted.

..and let’s not strawman that because we believe that since Kirkpatrick has been maligned by the right-wing, and think it’s cool he was given a break by a sponsor, that we now support bad labor policies anywhere by anyone.

When did right-wingers become so sanctimonious when other athlete got a Nike sponsorships? When it suits them, yeah. lol

Nike shares tumble amid Kaepernick ad backlash
: https://www.google.com/am...ck-ad/amp/

September 4, 2018 | 9:25am


Getty Images for Nike
Shares of Nike fell 3.2 percent on Tuesday as calls for a boycott of the sportswear giant gained traction on social media following its choice of Colin Kaepernick as a face for the 30th anniversary of its “Just Do It” slogan.

people against Colin kaepernick just don't want to get it.
imo it's about people (black men and people of color) who have worked hard to build and contribute militarily to our society/country.
then these same people have to contend with a corrupt, racially biased, overtly violent police force. and at the same time a racially charged judicial syatem that blinds justice that shows favoritism to murdering cops in many many cases.
kneeling in memory to the many who have died under a flag that is supposed support the words,"liberty and justice for all," is the point, because it does NOT!
the twisted perception that those kneeling are disrespecting the military is a giant ruse imo.

I do not remember all the particulars but some years back, there was some really big business to-do. I think it had to do with the "sweatshops" you are referring to, but I could be wrong. At any rate, I know it involved lots of different big American companies.

The reporter who broke the story tried to get an audience with the CEOs of each company involved. Every one of them turned him down...

...except Phil Knight.

Knight not only met with the reporter but whatever the issue was, Knight fixed it.

You need to learn how to analyze politics and people more deeply than from a bumpersticker or a Noam Chomsky video.

So, this now becomes a wait and see if Nike drop kicks Colin to the curb if their profits keep slipping or if they stand by their own convictions. Or are people supposed to start running out and buying Nike products thereby increasing Nike's profit margin? I see no issue with Colin, he did what he thought he should do, and he still has to make a living. But seeing big corp jump into this, one signed to a contract with the NFL and all the other stuff tied to one another is just messy af. I can't jump on this bandwagon, nor curse it. I'm just smh seeing reallife issues going to hell in a handbasket over who gets to yell the loudest.



Took me the longest time to figure out why I walked into a wall of sh***y attitudes today at work, I came in totally in lala land. Geesh, got my passport ready, I'm getting real fed up with stoopid stuff.

It’s jealousy and the fact that many of them are still pissed that Colin exposed a societal issue they don’t want to admit exists. They’d rather it keep happening and everybody keep their mouth shut about it.

If youre talking about right-wingers, the answer is always a big NO, just partisan hacks who’s beliefs are “only” (wink wink) about the partisan talking points they are told to regurgitate on that particular day

I hope Colin take his check and live well and whatever other checks he gets too. Outside of that, I hope I'm paying attention enough, cause I'mma hafta let the rest of this hit the pavement.
