NBA star Enes Kanter spoke out against other NBA players who he perceives as being unthinkingly pro-China, in spite of that country’s horrible record on human rights.

As The Daily Wire reports:

Over the past days, Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter has gone after China for their treatment of the Tibetan people and their imprisonment of the Uyghur Muslims.

Now, Kanter is turning his attention to those who profit off of Chinese labor.

In a video posted to his social media account on Monday, Kanter went after Nike and founder Phil Knight for their unwillingness to speak out on atrocities committed by the Chinese government.

“Your company says that you’re making a positive impact in our communities,” Kanter said. “And that is true. Yes, you are. Here, in the United States, Nike stands with Black Lives Matter. Nike stands with Stop Asian Hate. Nike stands with the Latino community. And Nike stands with the LGBTQ community … But when it comes to China, Nike remains silent.”

Will the NBA ever wake up to the consequences of its embrace of Communist China? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
