The Boston Celtics’ Enes Kanter continued his social media pressure campaign on Tuesday against the NBA‘s social justice hypocrisy with an invitation to perhaps the league’s biggest kingpins — Nike, superstar LeBron James (pictured), and all-time great Michael Jordan — to visit China’s forced labor camps:
To the owner of @Nike, Phil Knight
How about I book plane tickets for us
and let’s fly to China together.

Nike’s Twitter profile prominently displays hashtags for #BlackLivesMatter and #StopAsianHate.
The company has not responded to Kanter’s entreaties to speak out against China’s atrocities.
Apparently it’s important for co-founder and chairman emeritus Phil Knight to speak out against only certain types of “Asian hate” — China’s hate against the oppressed Uyghurs and Tibetans would seem to be perfectly acceptable.
