    Someone should check to see if his white mothers family ever owned slaves. He could then pay reparations to their descendants.

    Child labor does have its drawbacks.

    This is what I think of Nike and their child labor practices. Never owned a pair and never will.

    This entire thing is a win for conservatives. Nike decides to listen to Kap and virtue signal to less than 8% of the population (progressive “woke” left), alienating the majority of the nation in the process, to include moderate Democrats. R Gov Duecy pulls incentive, D Gov Newsom falls for the trap and wants Nike to go to CA. Says they “represent the best of our American values”. So we have an idiot Dem saying a company known for child labor and human rights violations and thinks the American flag is offensive, represents the best of American values. Get woke go broke.

    Nike had to know using a flag from that era would draw criticism from the whacked out left and this whole charade may have been premeditated. I just don't understand what their motive would be.

    I'm calling shenanigans for the simple reason that media and such tells us we can't survive w/o professional sports along with blockhead "athletes" giving us guidance on social issues.

    The primary "whale" buyers of Nike are liberal colored people and communist soy boys.

    Yes, all sorts of Americans buy Nike products, but most don't pay attention or spend that much money, regularly, individually.

    They guys dropping $200-300 every week for whatever latest colorway are likely communists cheering this move.

    One thought I did have, who thinks that Nike has the right to place a symbol of America on anything they make? Their weak knees approach proves to me that they and their products have zero to do with what America really is. America has always stood for promise based on individual excellence. Nike has no business talking America, go sell that shit in France.

    That's just it. nike (doesn't deserve a capital) doesn't want to support the country but will gladly take advantage of or national symbol. IMO, let them support that nappy haired, perm wearing degenerate and when I need clothing or footwear I'll know exactly which companies to avoid. On the same topic, is it converse or adidas making lgbtq shoes. Now I know not to buy its crap.

    Maybe principles come before economic opportunity sometimes. Voters will have the final say I suppose.

    While they both threw four touchdowns in a single game, only one of them is a man.

    How dare you disparage Al by trying to show them as being the same. Al would kick his a** while wearing Betsy Ross Nike's.
