Companies never had this fear before. "Private" ones.

IMHO - Daily Sun nailed it this morning with a cartoon of a man throwing his Nike's in the garbage pail with the caption, "just did it"! LOL

Nike is catering to its customer base. It's all about the money!

MONEY is their responsibility to all shareholders. That is the way our economy is supposed to work

I also agree with this opinion piece.

Why Nike Did The Right Thing



That's what makes this country, which was already great, the shining beacon it is around the world...and a dictator's (who at a minimum try to call critics fake, at worst have them jailed/executed)...worst nightmare.

Conversely, people also have the right to protest the protest...by burning Nike products they've already purchased.

Hopefully, they're smart enough...to take them off first.
Gotta buy them first..... can't we just smash a store front window and steal them? What if we promise not to touch the work boots?

This sarcasm is about as valid as the one about the old angry men.

Generalization as both make are counter productive in every intelligent way

Exactly. And when the leader of a country (ANY country) tries to dictate what consumers should and shouldn't buy or what manufacturers should or shouldn't do for advertising - when the only criteria is "does it criticize ME or my personal interests?" then it's incumbent upon that country's citizens (any country, any citizens) to reject the dictation for as long as they are legally allowed to do so.

Because if they continue to ignore it - or comply - they will eventually cease having that right to reject it. That right will be eliminated. Along with others.

Subtly bringing up an old racist joke...is duly noted.

Which is actually an excellent example...of why Nike is doing the right thing.

Thanks for that.

Well stated.


Too bad those that need to understand it the most, will either not get it...or will refuse to acknowledge it.

And then there is this one, which says that "Old angry white guys" are not the demographics of Nike buyers. (My old white guy has several pairs, hmmmm) And I do too.

Us old Gantners will replace the Nikes with something else as soon as they wear out. Old habits die hard. Waste not, want not.

This debate continues to be a sad commentary on the part of the US population whose self-centered ignorance of what occurs outside of 'their' bubble and their view that all others should cater to their views or get out. Sad. So Sad.
