Nike sucks. But it's nice to see 'em piss your folks off, heheheheheh.

And your president attacking the free market is pretty fookin' hilarious. Especially over what is constitutionally protected speech and corporate action. It's called the first amendment Jody. It's legal and proper, imo, to speak or act freely, we ain't soviet america eh?


This America of which we speak is not a country of big government, you know, where the highest lawman in the country interferes in business operations. You damn socialist. You crack me up.

Please do continue to amuse me with your viewpoint.

Yeah, probably safer than Chicago.

Is that where police walk into your home and shoot you because you are black?

It cracks me up, you capitalist-hating, free-market despising, big business hating people so vociferously defending Nike.

And you freedumb loving, liberty tree watering dimwits complain when a black man exercises his rights... and blow it off when a black man gets gunned down in his own home by a stupid cop, knowing FULL F*#KING WELL that implicit bias was the cause an it NEVER would have happened to a white guy.

So f*#king sad that you are incapable of acknowledging the deep societal racism that exist JUST 60 years after state and federel sanctiined Jim Crow.

No, it is where blacks kill each other.

Colin Kaepernick is the "real hero

No Edward, perhaps you think Colin is some kind of "hero" but I sure don't

But you used to.

Why the flip flop?

Hmmm, do we pay those "blacks" to "serve and protect" and give them all that great training?

Funny how you enslave a group of people for hundreds if years, persecute them for a few more generations, discriminate against them for another few generations, including hanging them in public for LOOKING at white wimen wrong, and then can't understand why their children are stuck in a cycle of poverty and crime.

BUT, you give a cop all this "great" training and she walks into the wrong apartment, kills the legal resident, and... oops, she was dumb. She was a product of our law enforcement system... a system that needs to be fixed. A system that inflicts lingering institutional racism on the african american community. There is study after study after study confirming implicit bias in Merkin society in general and law enforcement in particular... and you just can't handle the truth. You can't even handle a peaceful protest... and if you are honest with yourself you KNOW she would not have shot a white man or a white woman in the exact same situation... and you know if that black man had shot her he would have been beaten and arrested.

We all wonder stuff. The step between wondering and knowing seems all too easy for all of us.

That step always seems to produce a result where the stuff that I wonder is true, and the different stuff that other people wonder is false, and their belief is a data point indicating that those other people are either stupid or immoral or self-delusional or racist or shall we go on?

I wonder why that’s so easy for us?

Not for them, for an us that includes them. I’m not all too sanguine about humans either, but I aspire to count myself among their ranks.

Trump, implicit bias against african american men is real, prolific, measureable, and adamantly denied by the majority of conservative white folk. When armed white men protest law enforcement in S Nevada, the right applauds. When a black man kneels they are outraged. It boggles the f*#king mind that Merkins have come to this.

AntiChrist I agree. But as the parent of children of color myself, I don’t find my liberal friends to always be free of unacknowledged implicit racism either, and they seem guilty of the same kind of me-centric thinking that we’re all guilty of, just a slightly different flavor of it. No get out of racism free card for me, regardless of who my children or political biases are.

yes he is, because he is black and he should know better, discrimination does not exist anymore

and unarmed blacks do not get shot in the back by cops in American, that is fake news

now if a white football player kneeled during the anthem that would be ok

because they would be rightfully protesting the very "different" America they live in

white Americans are victims of "affirmative action" and denied jobs and getting into college

so when a white player kneels during the anthem he is not disrespecting the flag, god, or the NFL

he is just saying the white people should not be singled out for special negative treatment

ABSOLUTELY, implicit bias has been identified across the board. In fact, it is such a problem that people of color often show implicit bias against other people of color... THAT is how engrained it is in our society.

I never suggested liberals are any more immune to implicit bias, but far more liberals are willing to accept it exists and address it. Whereas the alt-right adamently deny implicit bias, write off ANY abuse of brown folk by law enforcement as isolated and probably justified, yet literally set their sights on law enforcement when a white guy is threatened.

In Cultural Anthropology they taught us to acknowledge and account for our cultural and racial bias’. That is the key. No one is completely objective.

Not as easy as it seems. It takes a fair amount of humility. Constant struggle.

...and the funding that Nike chairman Phil Knight has pitched to the Republican candidate for Gov. has hit at least $2.5 million buckeroos. Plus another reputed Million bucks to the Republican something or other. I don't think it's mattered though. $3.5 million didn't buy enough votes. Come back tomorrow evening and I'll confirm that for ya.

Or knot.

Post election edit: Phil Knights $3.5 million dollar donation to the republicans was knott enough although it was much closer than folks expected. Kate Brown (D) won the race, beating Knute Buhler.

Um .. well .. you know. .. Stuff happens things change we only have so much space and processing power in these brains of ours, sometimes maybe we’re just paying attention to different things.

“As much as I hate to admit this, perhaps there are more Brandon Marshall and Colin Kaepernich supporters out there than I realized.”

Yea, probably the same is true of Trump supporters.

Still, there might be something good about each of those supporters, even maybe something good about why they support who they support. Looks like they each won one way or another.
