What do tats have to do with anything?
I sport a full body up to my neck line.


He was triggered because I mentioned his bitching and moaning in his previous posts about being oppressed and I mention his narcissism of posting his pics with all of his ink!

I have ink as well, and know how much it costs. Although I do go for quality over quantity!



Got it, I thought he was saying you were calling him white trash or something.



Well according to the progressive definitions of white males, I am white trash and proud of it!
I definitely wasn't comparing him to me!


well im a white Semite Muslim Arab for the records here on ATS and might be trash because of you know the narratives



Well if you ever get to Western Pennsylvania, let's have a few beers and talk some snip!
I would love to sit down with and learn about our differences versus the MSM telling us how we are different!

Well, I identify as "white trash"... That's the whole reason why I exclusively only ever wear nike airs.

People on the left used to be against vile and sickening Mega Corporations like Nike that dehumanize and destroy the lives of poor brown people with their slave labour tactics.


Isnt Apple synonymous with the liberal identity?

However they managed that hoodwink, I recall a story around 2010 that Chinese slave laborers were committing suicide one after another off Apple's iPad factory (which they live inside of).


One of the reasons I refuse to buy Apple products. That and they're garbage imo.

Well liberals buying Nike stock would do that but that only lasts for so long. Sales will tell the real tale. I just can't see those same liberals buying sneakers unless they are going to give them away to charity.

I have a traditional Japanese tattoo or irezumi, and keeping with the tradition I have no tats on the neck, face or hands.

No violent images but some kids may think they are scary.

i was just curious...seems like some with the tats run out of room in the traditional places and start inking the face neck hands and the like. never understood why and never understood the violent words and images...i guess to intimidate the un-knowing amongst us. thanks for answering that for me. this was a reply to Muninn….not the O.P.a reply to: Muninn

What do Democrats have to do with anything? I know you guys love to bring Democrats into anything and everything you possibly can but this has nothing to do with being a brainwashed Democrat, it has to do with being a brainwashed Trump supporter. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of brainwashed Democrats thanks to CNN but this doesn't have anything to do with them even if you really want it to.

Where was this outrage over Nike before you were told to be outraged? Where were your cries about slave labor before Trump commented on them? Oh that's right, you are simply following the pied piper.

It's the stock market, you can't attribute it to one thing. Look at tlry on the nasdaq recently, a nowhere pot company with no decent products. They had 20 million in revenue last year, they sky rocketed to a 20 billion dollar company. Then in one hour went up another 20 billion in market value, for no effing reason at all. The market is just surging from trump getting offshore money back into the states economy.

it seems some people were pissed for a couple days. boycott football. boycott nike. 


Which ppl ??,certainly not folks I interact with both on line and off, my social media friends and others had nothing but positive responses.. but yeah I understand a number of blowhards got triggered and burned a couple of well worn Nikes, which could have been donated to some homeless dudes some of them vets.

It wasn't that gutsy a move by Nike just great research and marketing..

Lol it didnt "surge" 6 billion - it lost 4 billion and normalized + 2 billion as traders looked to capitalize the inevitable return to normalcy.

While 2 billion is significant its a small drop in the current 136 billion dollar bucket of total valuation.

What the "news" did is claim it "fell" 3% and then "gained" 6 billion to confuse the issue and make it look better.

NKE stock is increasing in price due to earnings on Wednesday. Very typical move which probably would have happened with or without the Kaepernick ad.

It will be back under 80 on Thursday where it should be.

I'm betting on 77.50 on open Thursday morning.

Good for Nike. They saw an opening and took it.

There's a sucker born every minute. And now they're wearing Nikes.

Nothing says Leftist Idealolgy more than a Capatalistic Company selling shoes at overaly inflated prices, made by people making and living in slave wage conditions by using social justice as their selling point.

I wonder how some manage to wrap their heads around that.

"Sacrifice Everything".......

NIke would whore out anyone and anything to sell their goods.

Fact is Nike have generally always been one of the better products, controversial Kaepernick adds or otherwise.

Under Armours also quite good these days.

6 Billion through is indeed quite a figure.

It's good to see that their move to not let the political tools trying to leverage them pay off.

Now you fools cheer them on 'cause Trump.


I'm not cheering anyone on, least of all Nike. They could go out of business tomorrow and I wouldn't be affected one bit and wouldn't really care to be honest, I don't wear Nikes nor do I have any stake in their success or failure. People around here act like they will somehow benefit from Nike succeeding or failing which is kind of dumb if you ask me, unless you own stocks in their business of course.



Once upon a time it was the left marching against companys like Nike. It was the left destroying their products.


Once upon a time it was the right defending companies like Nike. Wanna admit that you are also a hypocrite? That whataboutism simply shows just how similar the right and left actually are, changing stances on the whim of whomever is in office and whatever their preferred media outlet tells them.

This fake outrage is getting old, from both sides of the aisle, it's childish. Wanna know why society seems to be breaking down right now? Because of stupid # like this and people valuing their own opinions over anything else. It's social engineering at its worst and you guys are swallowing it hook, line and sinker. Sad.
