Apparently the swoosh on Rory McIlroy’s hat and chest represents Communist China.
Speaking to Wall Street analysts, Nike’s new CEO, John Donahoe, said, “Nike is a brand that is of China and for China.”
Donahoe’s comment comes after Nike had been under fire by China’s consumer class for denying it uses slave labor. The company released a statement and laughably claimed it does not source its product material from “forced labor.” Yet does anyone think the supply chain documentation in a totalitarian country is going to somehow list forced labor?
Additionally, critics argue the country’s supply chains are all interwoven and Xinjiang, where the Uyghur Muslims are imprisoned, delivers 80 percent of Chinese cotton and so when all mixed within the chains, it’d be virtually impossible not be using native Xinjiang cotton.
