Something Just Popped into my Head

I was answering discussions and something my assistant said about Walt Disney being anti-semitic which I know he is, but I still like him because he was brilliant. Whether brilliant people can have serious social flaws and still be considered brilliant is another discussion which I may post later. But as I was talking about this, I began to wonder why problematic brands like Nike which get into so much trouble with their sweatshops from public outcry don't market a fair trade line. Something along the line of pay us a hundred dollars extra and we'll guarantee you that this shoe wasn't made by little kid or someone making four cents an hour. This would solve a lot of their publicity problems. Why are they not smart enough to think of this. I'm no ad executive I'm a poet and I thought of it after four minutes.

I don't know about paying extra for a shoe. They already charge an arm and a leg. As far as anti-semitism being a "social flaw," I personally believe it is a little more serious than that. Hate on any level, for any human being should be intolerable. However, that is simply my opinion.
