Swoosh

I don't want to dwell on this but Nike's decision to not market a shoe with the original thirteen star flag is ludicrous. Historical revisionism at its worst.

I consider myself pretty aware and I did not know that nazis had appropriated this symbol. Neither do 99% of the rest of the people out there, I will bet.

It is a symbol of our country, for all its warts, pluses and minuses. I'm not going to give it up to the white supremacists. Make them fight for it.

You shouldn't sanitize our history and go over it with a fine tooth comb in order to be politically correct. And historical figures should not be judged by today's standards.

Hey Robert,
I agree with you but consider Nike’s customers. I think it was a business decision not a political one.
