  "and if your a girl from compton"  -holy fucking fuck!!     (there referencing compton no only cause she's from there but cause that's one of the 12 things most american white people associate black people with)   There making profit from racial stereotype re enforcement.    Nike have a long reach into alot of young peoples psyches and whoevers behind ads like this fully desearve a kick in the nuts from behind.

That's not what that means at all, goddamn did you miss the point. They're saying that you shouldn't let those stereotypes you mentioned define your life. They mentioned the Williams sisters being from Compton because that's where they from. Black women growing up in 1980's Compton 100% had to work harder and overcome more shit than most people.

If he comes out with some shoes or clothing, profits better go to the causes he's sacrificing everything for. I'd probably be supportive of that.

   Yeah I get that.  But at the end of the sound bite it's still 'black bitch -compton'.  They know what will hit home with white america.  These ads are an evil science.  (I'm not THAT fucking thick, I know its disquised as 'good' but trust me its not.  Your crazy pretending a corporation has a fucking soul. )  Its a sound bite bringing the same old negative trope to the light, capitalizing on it, while hiding under a lampshade of rightousness. wake up 
I'm not american.  Every time I've brought up racism in America I've been laughed out on slap.

Iíd take givecigsís race critiques very little attention. Still never going to wear a pair of nikes, but the ad was well done and sent the right message. I love the subtle Lacey Baker jab at gender norms that 99.9% of angry rednecks didnít even notice.

And hey, look at that, Nike has turned skateboarding into just another fuckiní sport in their ads. Thatís the real issue with nike skateboarding.

It's funny because that's not a picture of Colin Kaepernick it's a picture of Nyjah Huston. Guess all black people look alike, huh Nike?

Apparently you missde my point: Your points are stupid and not worth addressing. A dude who constantly posts racist bullshit doesnít suddenly become a philosopher on race or care about those exploited by its presence because we changed the subject.
Iím antiracist and anti-nike so Iíd love to be able to take your bullshit seriously, but youíre on a list of those to never be

If a big corporation can do evil, it can also do good. This is an example of the latter.
B-but you're talking to the same people who said that whatever Jason Jesse may have said 10 years ago must be how he thinks now and that he can't change and needs to be punished for the rest of his life, how does this work to claim that a corporation can change overnight because of an ad campaign they put out to pander, but an individual can't?  Just wondering how this works, illogical things are tricky like that.

The ONLY time a marketing department doesn't do things with generating more sales in mind is when the company is SO profitable that they just need to burn off money for the sake of ensuring that they (the marketing department) continue to receive the same budget the following year.  Otherwise, cuts happen, citing "if you needed the money, you'd have spent it already".  Worked in the industry long enough to know that's the way the game is played, so anything Nike does that's not intended to directly generate more profit is being done simply because they're literally needing to burn money right now from making more than usual this year.  But hey, I'm sure this was done for pure altruism's sake!

I worry your post is purposefully disingenuous for two reasons.

First, you equate acknowledging that x has done something good with fully accepting x as something good. This is not the case. For example, I firmly believe that Rob Dyrdek is bad for skateboarding, but I can acknowledge that his Memory Screen part is amazing.

Second, you are playing with the definition of reformed (which I don't think anyone has said, "Well, Nike is reformed. They are no longer about profit and they are all about the community.")

"How do we define a person or company as being reformed?" could be an interesting question, but, sadly, this isn't how you phrased it. Is someone reformed because they apologized (in order to save their sponsorships)? This would be a tough sell. A better example of reform, albeit fictional, is Ed Norton's character in American History X. He obviously goes from nazi scum to reformed human. What was the exact point of reform? How many good actions did it take for him to be classified as non-nazi? I'm not certain but by the end of the film it is very apparent he has given up his former beliefs and practices.

why do you keep ignoring that jason jessee was continuing to sport nazi paraphernalia after the thread was initially created? it wasnt about what he did 10 years ago.
