these dummies are making it so much worse for themselves because whenever they post these support posts the comments fill up with the worst people just kind of proving the point.

you would think if a company saw a bunch of racists supporting their posts they would take a second look at their message.

This is maybe a dumb question but who even owns/runs Santa Cruz? Who is it that’s “standing behind” him exactly?

The four founders were Richard Novak and Jay Shuirman, who owned NHS, and Fausto Vitello and Eric Swenson — mechanics who owned a small metal shop and foundry called Ermico Enterprises. The four originally met at a Los Angeles downhill skateboard race in 1977. Novak and Shuirman were there with their Santa Cruz skateboards and Road Rider wheels while Vitello and Swenson showed up with their Stroker truck — an elaborate automobile-style suspension design. Novak and Shuirman had also been working on a suspension truck for downhill racing at their Santa Cruz locale based on a different design. Realizing their common interests, the four spent the following months meeting up to work and party together. NHS had the money, distribution, and marketing but had no way to properly engineer the trucks, and Ermico had the ability and the drive to make the truck. They burst on the scene at a Newark, California, Hester Pro-Bowl Series contest on May 23rd, 1978, with a truck that would change skateboarding forever.

ok.. I've been sitting on this article for a while.. it is an old article.
I've wanted to post it just so a lot of people who may not know about
it might learn something. This article is about Ermico Enterprises
which is the main company that Fausto owns. Ermico produces and/or
has financial connections to Thrasher, Slap, Independent trucks,
Venture trucks, Thunder trucks, Real skateboards, Think skateboards,
Adrenaline skateboards, Stereo skateboards, Spitfire wheels, and a
shitload of other companies that I could name for a few more lines..
I guess the point behind this is that you may want to think a bit
before you purchase products from these people. I don't know the
current labor status with Ermico but I've been trying to reach Local
164 every now and then.

for the record, I don't think that Fausto is an ultimate evil, I think
some things that I've heard and seen evidence of are kinda shady, the
advertising practices are just the beginning.

oh, and I ride Spitfire wheels and Thunder trucks, go figure.
...murray...


the following article was in the San Francisco Chronicle March 18th,
1987. It was reprinted in whole.

*Unusual Strike By Immigrants at S.F. Factory*

        A walkout by Salvadoran immigrants at a San Francisco
skateboard-parts factory provides a glimpse of organizing efforts in
the Bay Area's growing population of young Latino workers.

        The 20 nonunion employees of Ermico Enterprises Inc. are on strike
for higher pay, better working conditions and union recognition.

        Newly arrived, timid immigrants tend to remain silent about working
conditions that would provoke longtime residents. But two weeks ago,
20 of the 40 laborers at Ermico decided to walk off their jobs because
they felt that management was thwarting their attempt to form a
union. The other 20 are still working.

        The strike came at a time when the workers, most of them
Salvadoran men in their 20s, were scheduled to vote in a secret
ballot election on whether to join Molders and Allied Workers Union
Local 164, which represents most Bay Area foundry employees.

        Nelson Moran, 20, sat on the stump of a telephone pole as a trash
can fire warmed him and three other young strikers outside the gates
of the Hunters Point industrial park that contains the Ermico plant.

        A police van was parked nearby. Nine strikers were arrested last
week for blocking access to the factory.

        Checking of his list of grievances, Moran said there is no
ventilation
in a 20-by-40-foot area of the plant where workers grind aluminum
castings for skateboard wheels assemblies.

        The only bathroom has no hot water, he said. Workers whose hands
are hot from handling molten metal sometimes get painful cramps
when washing with cold water, he said.

        Workers sometimes get nauseated from breathing fumes from
lubricants used to cool drills and grinding machines, one young
unidentified laborer said. "You start feeling bad, sleepy, things like
that," he said.

        David Bacon, and organizer for the molders' union, called the
conditions in the plant "primitive."

        Newly hired workers earn $4.25 an hour at Ermico, according to
strikers. But workers in union foundries in the Bay Area start at $8
to $10 an hour.

        "The salary is too low," said Moran, who emigrated four years ago
from his native Salvadoran farming town to the United States. "They
don't pay vacations, holidays. We don't have good insurance."

        Management referred all questions to an attorney, James Meath of
Richmond, Va. Meath said that he is unaware of conditions in the plant
and cannot respond to any of the grievances.

        "Our position is that we're going to run our business," he said.

        Moran, who lives with his mother and brothers in San Bruno, laughed
when asked whether he feared that the U.S. Immigration and
Naturalization Service would come to check the striker's documents.

        "I don't care if the people don't have papers," another striker said.
"No more exploitation." The metal-casting industry depends on
immigrants and eventually will listen to their demands, this worker
believes.

        Ignacio de la Fuente, business manager for the molders' union,
predicted that the strike will influence other immigrants who enter
the Bay Area economy through low-paying factory and service jobs.

        Economists have said job actions among unskilled Latino immigrants
may become more common under the new immigration law. Illegal
aliens who have lived in the United States continuously since Jan. 1,
1982 may be eligible to become temporary residents under the new
law.

        Meanwhile, the union organizing effort is tied up at the National
Labor Relations Board.

        The molders' union is charging that management refused to attend a
meeting a month ago, when the NLRB was to set a date for the
secret-ballot election. The union also claims that four laborers active
in organizing were fired two days after the meeting.

        Management has responded with charges of intimidation by the union.
The company says the four workers were let go because of a business
slowdown.

what the fuck, coward cant denounce white power and racists because they are all his friends, and neither can santa cruz.  Saying they "stand behind him" just looks like you stand behind his fuckin swazi's and ss gear, which they do.

the comment sections in these should be telling enough, the type of people supporting him (besides the industry social climbers) are the worst people.

Edit: saw nopes post after, same shit
only in skateboarding is putting an adult in a position where they might have to actually work for their income "ruining their life"  ::)

They may as well change the caption to “We love and stand behind Jason Jessee and his love for nazi/racist imagery, use of racial slurs, homophobia, etc!”

Wow, that is a huge bummer of a post.  I didnt care much for the boycott his sponsors thing, but fuck santa cruz after that.  Fucking cowards.
Absolutely fucking whack
The worst thing about it is that nobody can boycott them, because nobody has given a fuck about them for years.

Anyone that has met him and talked with him would see that.
I've already explained why that's a bullshit argument. Shut up. And what am I doing to help? I'm just trying to live my life, kook. His racism is his flaw, not mine. And like I said, I. JUST. DON'T. LIKE. HIM.

Oh, and I consider all of the people who wouldn't be a target of Jason Jessee-types and sticking up for us to be rad, Oblow claims its negativity, I claim its the opposite

easy tough guy that's fine to not like him but you sure love talking about him. So go on and live that life of yours where you've never kooked it...just remember to never fuck up who knows what message board you will wind up on....errr
Plenty of people think I'm an asshole. I accept that. I don't demand that they sit down and have a discussion with me because they'd like me if they knew me. When somebody doesn't like me, I might reflect on why they don't like me, consider my actions, and then move on with the understanding that some people just won't like me either way. I especially wouldn't complain if shit I did to be shocking ended up shocking people. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Fuck a nazi.
And guess what, guy who thinks I'm an asshole: there's room for people like me, or people like him in skateboarding. He started the "I won't just let you live your life in peace" shit,  he only has a problem now because the tables have turned on him. He's a fucking kook, and fuck Santa Cruz, SCHMITTY, and Oblow are on the same boat as him. They prefer white supremacy as a cultural value in skateboarding over diversity.
Let's repeat that:
Santa Cruz skateboards values white supremacy over diversity in skateboarding
SCHMITTY values white supremacy over diversity in skateboarding
Mark Oblow (you know, the guy who started the only World brands made up of mostly white people) values white supremacy over diversity in skateboarding.

Sure, Michael Jordan always had issues with 'race' in the past and has also spoken about this in his book saying something in the lines of 'being against all white people'... because he had issues with tons of white people in the past...

Rumor has it he said something like 'Republicans buy sneakers too' about his own shoes... etc.

I just fucked around and realized that I'm a hypocrite about this, and in some years this may be me.
While i'm ashamed of it today, I definitely was a person who used "gay" as a catch-all term for something lacking or negative. I also am embarrassed to say I used the word "Faggot" to hopefully get that smoke billowing with several individuals over the years to whom I meant to cause harm.

While i've never rocked nazi/kkk/pro-hetero or anti-homosexual memorabilia, I have a past, just like Jessee.  Was Jessee's altercation with Peanut unprovoked: they were all just ripping and jessee looks over and lets the n-bomb drop, unprovoked? I sorta believe it, anyone know anything circumstantial? Maybe they had beef and Jessee wanted to bring it to the streets? It still makes him racist, but what if he really is trying to change?

I'm saying all that to say this:
If (IF) Jessee is on the level, I feel a sort of empathy for him. If he is really trying to change, and you won't let him, where does that leave you?
I definitely shouldn't be throwing the stones in here like I did, because my crackhouse is glass/plastic/plexiglass.

you are not a hypocrite. most of us have made poor decisions in our pasts but the main difference here is that while most people seem to change for the better as they grew up Jessee continued to associate himself with the very things he supposedly evolved from.
