How great would it be if we found out that this whole time he was squatting in that house.

Correct. Nike has used slaves and has done as little as possible to cut that shit out. They are scum, and supporting them is unjustifiable. Not a conspiracy theory.

While it's difficult to track everything through the vast network of international trade, Nike and its vendors generally have better labor practices than most of the rest of the athletic shoe industry, likely due to the increased scrutiny. I haven't looked in a while, but they had the best (possibly dubious) "ethical" rating of any skate shoe manufacturer, especially and including our beloved core brands

Nike's own press release about the Uyghur slaves is more damning than your interpretation. A lot has changed recently because of China's new initiatives. It's a good time to look again.

About a week ago Weck went into full conspiracy mode on Live. He was linking BLM protests to Jews and so on. In no way did it seem like he was joking. I saw this in passing and talked about it with another friend who also saw it, didnít care enough to screen record it.
Also, a few weeks back his fiancť was making the rounds on Twitter for being called out for supporting that Kyle Rittenhouse kid. She made her twitter private right after.

With no product to sell or sponsors to call his actions to account why the fuck do I care what he has to say.

Show me please. I try to keep up on labor standards, and Nike is consistently shit.

Adidas is the only once Iíve seen that approaches decency.

Weck learning a hard lesson about capitalism.
Now, we used to say we put on our tights to put on the world. So I don't think it tarnishes the image at all.

Slaves built your iPhone. We literally all rely on the slave labor of other human beings, it's become inescapable in our lives. At least Nike isn't raising the prices every year when they sell me the same pair of Blazers over and over again like Apple does with iPhones. Not that Nike isn't total slimebucket corporation.

If we didnít buy the shoes, how would they be able to afford all that rodent fecal matter-contaminated gruel for all those slaves?  That shitís not free you know.

I mean what he said is 100% true but the same thing goes for every other so called "core" company.

Here are some important differences:
1. They have a much bigger influence over how China operates its clothing and shoe factories because of the volume produced. They alone can make major changes if they're willing to face China head on.
2. While it's fair to suspect any other company producing shoes/clothes in China has these issues, nike was actually caught red handed with slaves (Quingdao Taekwang factory).
3. Other companies that were caught showed more transparency in dealing with it. They allowed human rights groups to conduct follow up inspections of their facilities and appear to actually want to address the issue.
4. Nike still produces shoes at the factory where they were caught with slaves and refuses to allow human rights groups to inspect.
5. Nike used obvious weasel language in their PR statement about the issue. The fact that they couldn't make more explicit statements to clear up doubts points towards the issue being as bad as one would fear.
6. Nike tries to be the sjw brand.

Not saying other companies are totally innocent, but Nike has been a focus because of the scale of their involvement and their poor response. They are not in the same basket as everyone else.
