I'm sure those losing their job from a boycott will feel this way.

The smart ones quit when they realized they were working for fascists. Darwin will handle the rest.

Goodyear just announced a new line of tires targeted towards BLM, it's specifically designed to run over white people for maximum damage.

All of them? No one is working at goodyear?

When so many are losing their jobs the right thing to do is boycott.

Do you want the Mariam-Webster definition or the new definition assigned by Wiki? Because they both apply, I just need to know how to show you in a way that your beliefs will accept

Conservatives buy tires before they get to the wear lines.....liberals buy the tires that were taken off the conservatives cars and run around with bald tires.

Can you tell I have two liberal daughters?


If they were my daughters, I'd buy 'em some cheap but good tires
My (millenial) son actually surprised me by actually knowing Jo Jorgensen was running for the Libertarian party

Ah yes, the ole’ “They do it too, so I must also get in the mud and do the same thing while also speaking out against doing things like this. We are not two heads of the same snake.”, routine.

So much for a business running things the way they want. Surely we should have more government interruption in private businesses. Never a bad thing when the federal government swoops in to trash talk an American company, right?

I say this with a pantry full of Goya products.

I’ve never understood why so many companies chose to take public stances on political and social justice issues. There didn’t seem to be much — if any — pressure from customers to be woke.

Why risk offending a large part of your customer base? It just doesn’t make good business sense.

So the BLM movement is getting tireing now.

I heard they're not into puns and will be turning their new Cracker Crusher tires on you.

Doesn't NASCAR use Goodyear tires?

In this case it doesn't sound like Goodyear was trying to take a public stance; they where deseminating internal training information to their employees; it was one of their employees who than put it into the public eye.

A company like Goodyear does have to set conduct policies for their employees and in this day and age that does include politics given the fact that so many people want to take their politics to work with them these days.

They should have just been smarter about it; they instead tried to be compassionate while being tone def.

It's very easy. NOTHING POLITICAL IS ALLOWED! There. Simple, fair and to the point. Goodyear was choosing sides and they got called on it.

This is why for the most part I run Yokohama tires, the Japanese don't really feed in to the SJW or woke stuff. Same with the tires I run on the track, which come from Pirelli, no agendas there either, just really good tires.

You’re right. They weren’t virtue signaling.

You might want to check their environmental and social responsibility policies.

Just because Trump hasn't read about it on Twitter doesn't mean they're not spending millions on it...
