Why so serious? Nike has the right to do whatever they can with their brand. They are not refusing service to anyone , though that should be ok by ‘conservative’ standards anyway. Nike is not going to lose much revenue. Yea, they lose OP, big loss indeed. But you know who wins the popular vote in this country. AZ on the other hand is cool with losing jobs and revenue. Jobs, jobs , jobs. # MAGA On a side note, I hope GA is not dumb enough to lose all the Hollywood revenue over abortion BS

Nike did not announce any changes to the proposed manufacturing plant in Goodyear. The city offered to waive $1mm in fees and grant Nike another $1mm in corporate welfare. The governor is capitalizing on the media frenzy for political gains but no state subsidy was ever reported prior to today. The more you know.

So police brutality against minorities across the country are lies? Even those documented by video camera? Amazing. Amuse me with what you consider your proud American History, I’m all ears. Later you can get your soap box and educate me about the great white flight post segregation, I’ll save you some tissues for that as well.

CD1 thinks that all the racists and bigots who voted for segregationist Democrats moved to different states??? They obviously did not, they now vote Republican.

What lies did Kaep tell about America? We are still waiting for you to address that. And please allow me to love and criticize my country at the same time. Baffling that becoming aware of and critical of certain times in our history equates to hating my country. Very low IQ stance there OP

Nike isnt selling shoes to Conservative white people. At least, that isn't who they are marketing to. Step aside.

If we can't unite under the American flag what the hell can we unite under? The union was never perfect and we keep striving to perfect it. Even the 50 star flag flew at the time of segregation.

Forget symbols and emblems. You want all people to forcefully unite for what.

At least Arizona has some backbone in the controversy. They pulled all state level economic incentives off the table in negotiations with Nike to build a facility in Phoenix over this latest flag decision.

OP, educate us on Kap’s lies about American culture. I’d like to know what lies are being elevated over our proud American history. Btw, kneeling is not protesting this country or the flag

Why do all of you hate this country so much You can be against some of its policies and fight for a better tomorrow without trashing our history No country has been more selfless fighting the good fight, saving lives, protecting the innocent, shedding its blood and treasure - if you can name a country which has (without our support) please do so Of course when they teach the Howard Zinn version of history in high school and college today it’s hard not to hate this country or think the wrong side lost in the Cold War and everything would be wonderful if only we followed Bernie Sanders, AOC and Marx

Fact: America was founded by old white men that wanted to exploit black people and women. Could either vote? No. Loving this country means acknowledging its mistakes, not "rewriting history"

Just because some hate group adopts the Betsy Ross flag doesn’t mean that’s what it stands for. We are constantly apologizing for history. Should we pretend we never left England? Let’s not allow English if French in the US. They had slaves too. Oh, and what about the African countries exploiting and raping women? Colin’s fifteen minutes are up and I’m voting with my wallet. I’ll buy German pumas or adidas even though that country has a checkered past. Principle 1, do you drive a Japanese or German car. Look at their history. It’s a bit more recent than the Betsy Ross

Nope, that’s not what this is. That knee jerk defensiveness is right in line with not wanting to actually discuss nuance though

The Betsy Ross flag fell out of style pretty quickly (Obama’s second inauguration in 2013).
