    So what youre saying is that youre not doing everything you can to lower your footprint?


    As a side note, why can you try to even things out and Kanter can't?

    Because I’m putting cans in a bag….. not calling out other people raging about it. You think our actions are similar?

    I think if you're advocating Kanter singling out LeBron then you're advocating him telling another how he should have his voice heard. It's pointing at a symptom... in the form of a human being who is just a little more complicit than Kanter himself, instead of pointing at the institution. I am all for Kanter protesting the horrible injustices going on in China. I'm even for politicians who really want to make policy changes when it comes to China and human rights over there. That being said Kanter and the politicians that have gone after the league and LeBron are ignoring just how attached we are as a country economically to China and their slave labor.

    Kanter is being unjust in singling out LeBron and the image on Kanter's shoe of LeBron being crowned by Xi Jinping while LeBron is taking a knee is some bullshit.

    no more than Kanter is. Not sure your point or the relevance of it.
    What does that have to do with your claim of him basically being a hypocrite?
    Also that was a typo. Meant to say shouldn't. Not should.

    I agree, he doesn't have to do that way.

    We don't actually recycle much of anything in this country, we just ship it off to China so we feel better about our rate of consumption. And they either turn it into single-use products to sell back to us, or dump it on poorer countries to sift through.

    and what we do recycle is often tossed back in the trash due to lack of proper segregation and cleansing of the products tossed in the recycle bin.
    And then how much ends up in the oceans?

    I’m saying stand up or accept. Can’t do both. Can’t support what you are against sir. Doesn’t work that way.

    That's like saying you can't be against homelessness if you don't open your home to homeless.

    It's because LeBron likes to be seen as a SJW and is very outspoken about inequality. But as it turns out he only has selective outrage because he's pretty quiet about things when they affect money going into his pocket. In fact he sided with China over the whole Morey fiasco.

    Bottom line, LeBron is a hypocrite and Kanter is rightfully calling him out for it.
