So it doesn’t bother you that Nike has sweat shops overseas that make their products?
@Rissyanne agreed if kapernick really wanted to protest injustice he'd have taken a knee and refused to advertise for Nike until the give they raise the slave wages they pay their sweat shop workers. Kapernick also should check his white privledge even if it's only half white privledge lol
@Rissyanne I never said that didn't bother me, he asked about Kaepernick, I answered about Kaepernick. Bringing up things that aren't at all related the question at hand in an attempt to make me seem like a bad person because you don't agree with my opinion is a really unfair debate tactic, don't you think?
If you can’t understand the connection... and if this was a white man doing this. You liberals would lose your mind. And tell me what has he sacrificed?
@Rissyanne1. There is no connection between my opinion of nikes choice to use kaepernick as a face to the company and nikes choice to use sweatshops. Thats like you saying you like suckers and me being like "Oh, so you dont care about that fact that hundreds of children choke and die on them?" completely unrelated and unfair argument. 2.

@Rissyanne #. You used you liberals and the idea that I for some reason think the race of a person matters when I judge something as a whole. Which shows more how much race matters to you than it does to me. I am biracial, WHITE and BLACK and I show as white. I am not some psycho liberal, although I do have liberal values at times. You are a person who cannot see past your assumptions when getting into a debate and would rather get into an argument. I will not be continuing this past this comment, though you are free to respond.
Don’t give me that crap. Like I said if this was a white man you would be singing a different song.

Have you read about Levi's? Taking a stand with gun grabbers to try and repeal the 2nd Amendment.
I have not. Another company added to the boycott list.
Yeah but they care about their shoes being bought.
I think they'd care more if their shoes were being stolen first and then burned.
They care if the shoes are unsold
They are burning the product and then buying rebook or Adidas instead
trumpazees... brilliant. how have i not heard that before.
@wankiam trumpazees is a homophobic word. By adding it onto something or someone who you don't like or hate you basically saying that being homosexual or a "panzee" is a negative thing. Both of you guys should check your cis gendered homophobic fat transphobic liberal privledge (boom that just happened).
you stre about that coz i read it as a play on chimpanzee
@wankiam oh well using words like ape, monkey, chimpanzee, gorilla or any word that is a derivative of a primate is now racist in 2018 so stop being racist.
that just confirms that many trump supporters have trouble understanding what racism really is but carry on please... i have stopped listening though
@wankiam hey I didn't write this year's political correctness rule book.
How is going out and buying new shoes from a different company hurting them?You wouldn't have bought Nike's anyways because you already had a pair. All you did is make yourself go buy new shoes when you had a perfectly good pair of shoes.If I buy McDonalds and then throw it in the trash and then go buy burger king, I didn't hurt McDonalds at all. I just wasted a product and my own money, which only hurts me.
Of course it hurts them, because you aren't buying their shoes. They aren't getting your money.If you and others boycotted McDonald's and choose burger king for all your fast food burger needs for the next ten years how much of a loss in revenue would that be.
And the part where you burn your already paid for product somehow fits into this... where?
Well wearing them is free advertising for the brand.
That's pretty arrogant to think you're advertising for any company because you're wearing their product. Unless you're famous and people emulate you, you're not advertising shit. It's like when people say they won't buy a game franchise anymore as if they stuck it to a company. That company doesn't even know you exist.
Of course your advertising. That's why you see Nike and the nile symbol everywhere on their clothes.
Well enjoy throwing away your money thinking Nike noticed that you even did anything. Not sure what it is with far-right winged people and burning stuff. You guys have book burnings, cross burnings and clothing burnings.
Lol some of the things left wingers say about Jews would make Hitler blush.
I appreciate you don't even deny any of the burnings and instead just try to shift the focus.
In defence of the book burning those folks buy the books in the store rather than just burn down the book store. The cross burning hasn't happened since the KKK were a part of the democrat party. Left wingers have burning shit for years, mostly private property rather than their own personal belongings.
"In defence of the book burning"yep.
It's their books. Liberals burn books and deny anyone the right to free speech they dont agree with.
I know I've just been denying your right to speech all day haven't I?
Depends have you been preventing people from speaking at a male suicide prevention convention?
How dare Nike let women have jobs!
You mean how dare Nike allow children to have jobs?
Notbrash decisions but more miscalculations.
Trust me there is no miscalculations. These companies do their homework well before they do something drastic.
Yes but they can still miscalculate
Look at it from their perspective. Do you really think Nike gives a damn about blacks, mostly criminals getting killed by cops? Of course not.Nike knows there is a huge PC and social justice movement going on now and they are trying to exploit it to their advantage.Nike's hardcore supporters aren't going anywhere. They will still buy Nike products.Many whites especially young ones are pressured into the PC movement therefore they will be made to subconsciously feel guilty for not supporting Nike products and their social "cause"Lastly, many blacks will now feel like Nike is on their side and will flock to the mall and buy their products... and lets not forget Christmas is around the corner too.Like I said these billionaire companies aren't stupid. They know exactly what they are doing, but the average person is clueless about their tactics.
Blacks always bought Nike, by hiring kapernick they are alienating a large percentage of the population. As a rule investing in social justice is a gamble.
Blacks will support Nike even more... and the emmense of whites will support or still buy Nike products..Its mainly only the whites that live in Alabama or Tennessee and other southern states which are butt hurt consertives that won't buy Nike products anymore, which they really don't buy anyways.Nike gains to win long term for all the previous reasons I gave.
Not true at all. It whites who don't live on the east or west coast. Blacks aren't as anti-trump as the media portrays, it's mostly privledged middle class black college students that hate trump.
Oh don't they? How do you explain the New Coke fiasco from Coca Cola? The Nova fiasco in Latin America from Chevrolet? The McDonald's fail entering the Japan market? There are so many tales of big corporations making giant blunders throughout history. There will certainly be more.
We will see. Corporations don't like to profits to drop
Please, Money will never drop from companies. Nike is one of them. I mean America has a cheeto for president, I doubt we can talk.
Can you think of any examples?The recent boycotts I could think of would be star wars, battlefield, and most of Marvel comics all of these are now floundering to make changes.
@ladsin People have been complaining about EA for years and nothing has changed because people will still buy their games, and their product is games.Nike's product is footwear, something people need. I doubt they will lose any money they already didn't project to lose.I think this is a stunt to raise sales, since people who agreed with Kapernick will look to buy Nike now.
Mm good one to point out although EA is currently on a slump and I hope it continues because they piss me off XD
@ladsin I agree. A loss of even 1% revenue is quite simply bad business. SJW politics just doesn't sell.People don't need Nike footwear as it's over priced and there are other brands.
Most companies expect earnings and losses every quarter. A million dollar loss is not bad if they expect a gain later on. Companies think about the long game. And yes, no one needs Nikes, but they need Nike more than video games and video games companies don't care, so why should a clothing company, albeit an expensive one, care?
Lossing millions is a big loss, long term in means less capital to invest and less overall prophit
EA is starting to make changes ie Souderland, Fan, etc. Nobody needs Nike. I was sponsored by Adidas anyway so I never wore Nike. "Impossible is nothing"
EA is starting to make changes apparently because of their losses. Battlefield V apparently is 85% behind expectations.
@ladsin 85% is a huge loss for any company. damn.
It's an EA game. That's just from the pre-order numbers, but it's big enough for EA to freak
Or burn flags
Or other people's private property, or block roads and damage other people's cars.
2.9%. Form just hiring kapernick seems a lot, if sales drop how much will the stock fall?
Who knows? Keep in mind that for every Conservative out there trying to keep his tears from putting out the fire of his shoes burning, there's a Liberal stocking up on Nike cross trainers. So I don't know what will happen to their sales.
The snowflakes seem to be the ones supporting Colin’s racist lying ass
About half say yes.
Half who've voted on this thread but that doesn't represent the whole world. Most people in the world don't understand American football let alone know the name of the players.
