#1 If you ever wondered what it would take to get the woke Social Justice Warrior crowd to loudly support a multinational corporation with nearly $35 billion in revenue in 2017; that pays its assembly line workers about 2.5 percent of production costs; that faces accusations that its factories bar independent inspections of working conditions; whose workers frequently faint from heat and exhaustion, and suffer wage theft, forced overtime, restrictions on their use of toilets, exposure to toxic solvents, and padlocked exit doors . . . well, apparently Colin Kaepernick is all that it takes.

#2 The -6 billion dollar man.

Boycott Nike and your chances of being murdered for shoes in urban America go way down. If it saves just one thousand lives.

#7 #4 BP, interesting point about Women Soldiers Targets in a FPS...

That's what they are to the Player. Does one get the same game enjoyment sniping at women soldiers? Possibly a certain fraction of the gamers would find a certain distaste at shooting unaware women ... or children. Why not explore the Ick Factor!, EA, by having underaged children in the target groups?

There is a Vietnam-Era FPS that I find myself unable to play. My older brother manned the forward MG on a riverboat in Vietnam and I get a visceral distaste shooting at targets like that in the game. He survived his year unlike many of the electronic phantoms I massacred...

#8 stock dropped 2.7 percent today

It makes any buybacks that much less expensive, I guess.
