Arizona to pull Nike incentive over sneaker recall

Arizona’s governor on Tuesday withdrew a $1 million incentive for Nike Inc to build a plant in the state after the world’s largest sportswear maker canceled release of a sneaker featuring a colonial-era version of the American flag, which critics say reflects links to slavery.

Great call, Doug, totally back your decision to not provide special support for a company that does not support the country and people that made them wealthy.

Nike should stay in China since they hate America so much.

The only thing offensive about those shoes is the price tag

Great move , it’s the only thing these corporate types understand. The virtue signalling embarked on by the likes of Nike are to do with sales plain and simple

Yes, finally people with sense. While we’re at it, let’s ban cotton products too. Oh you know what, Fourth of July is racist because they had slaves back then, so let’s ban that holiday. Screw it, let’s just rename our country because anything to do with America nowadays is racist. Nike is a crap company that make crap products.

Weak as fu🤔k. This clown is a right anti- American dick. Look, you unpatriotic moron- remember why your rich and your mug is plastered all over the tv- not because youre ‘woke’ it’s because of the opportunities afforded to you by AMERICA. Leftist cretin, boils my piss. Maybe get him to join the military and see how ‘woke’ he is then- he’ll be shoulder to shoulder with real heroes.

Hearing Kapernick talk about slavery over and over keeps reminding me of slavery. Maybe Nike should remove him from their marketing so we won't think about awful things that happened the past.

Most of Nike’s customers are criminals and lowlife types. You don’t want to offend them.
