Colin Kaepernick slave master

He's against slavery until it gets into his pocket. Then he suddenly falls silent.

 

 

Since his debut as a leading athlete protester against the United States, Colin Kaepernick has time and again slammed the U.S. over slavery, even though it was eliminated more than 150 years ago. Yet, Kaepernick has remained utterly silent as his financial backer, Nike, employs slave labor in China to make its products.

This month, news broke that giant multinational corporations including Nike have been in congress against the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, a bill that seeks to put an end to the slave labor camps China employs to manufacture many of the products sold by big corporations in the west.

Nike, along with manufacturers including Apple, Patagonia, Adidas, and many others, was named in a study by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) that identifies 83 international corporations that use factories where the ruling Communist Party of China uses thousands of Uyghur Muslims as slave labor.

Also, nearly 200 labor and human rights groups recently launched a campaign claiming that “virtually the entire apparel industry is tainted by forced Uyghur and Turkic Muslim labour.” The campaign insists that 80 percent of the cotton used to make clothing in China was picked in Xinjiang province using slave labor.

Colin Kaepernick has been utterly silent on all this news, even as he has benefited greatly from the multimillion-dollar contract he has with Nike. The sportswear giant has produced multiple shoes and signature jerseys carrying Kaepernick’s name, face, and slogans.

Re: Colin Kaepernick slave master

the old biblical adage that one should remove the log from his own eye first, before going after the speck in someone else's eye, comes to mind here.

Democrats just never have a negative word to say about China do they.  The #2 economy in the world but dems are fine with it being treated like a developing country with regard to environmental regulation.  They are fine with China's human rights violations.  Maybe hunter could explain why.

Re: Colin Kaepernick slave master

china jo and hunter have millions of reasons not to criticize china.

This should be investigated until no stone is left unturned, and if treason is there, let their heads roll.

If not, they should be given formal apologies and charges brought against the false accusers, just like with Trump and RX3.

Then do it - like your chant of Hillary 4 years ago - “Lock her up!!!”   How far did that go, when the reality of PROOF stood in the way, of those prison bars.

You guys love to spew trash.   BS all day long - day after day.   America is sick of it.   That’s why Trump lost.   And you guys can’t stand the fact, that you still are trying to carry water for a “failed president”, who spent millions campaigning for 4 years, wasting time when he could have actually been doing something for the American people.   

But no - his “feel good” rallies, and his golfing, got in the way of him doing the job he was hired to do - to be the President of the United States.   

He didn’t give a lick about being President, or actually doing anything.   It was just a way to get attention - that’s all Trump really wants in life.

And OH, but he triiiiiied, didn’t he?
