Overpriced Michael Jordan sneakers made in foreign sweatshops

Regarding the “race issue” and “social responsibility,” look at Jordan sneakers. They sell from $350 to $450. Regular good-quality sneakers cost approximately $35.

Kids of all races are crazy to purchase Jordan sneakers. I assume Michael Jordan makes a lot of money licensing his famous name. That is totally fine with me. The only question is: Aren’t Jordan sneakers made in sweatshops in Singapore and Thailand?

If yes, wouldn’t it be better if Jordan produced in our African -American communities such as the Staten Island North Shore? It would help people who are the most disadvantaged to get jobs and training if the company supplied it and get help breaking the cycle of poverty and dependence

Training and jobs will lead to less crime in African-American communities. I am sure if his sneakers carried the label “Made in USA,” Jordan’s business would be even more successful and a model for others.
