Hong Kong and China are in a political pissing contest which was only further exacerbated by GM Jocksniffer of the Houston Rockets when he tweeted his support for Hong Kong.
This scab that’s been picked off surrounds the topic of censorship. Free speech rules in the United States… or so I thought.
Because of China’s trading status with our country, some companies are tip-toeing around the issue in an effort not to be the victim of China flexing its muscle, and censoring their content and products from its 1 billion potential consumers.
Pride, morals, and the “American Way” are being pushed aside for the almighty dollar. These companies all acting like China’s bitch!
Google, Apple, Disney, the NBA, and countless other companies mute themselves and turn the other way concerning China’s immoral business practices. All for the chance of getting at their consumers.
However, China has more people playing basketball than there are people in the United States! Also, more than 600 million people watch the NBA on TV in China, which is why the NBA freaked out when China recently stopped airing games.
Ad revenue anyone? Any shoe buyers over there Lebron? Are you that shallow, player?
There’s a lesson for all of us in this crisis though.
- How are you being censored in your business or personal life?
- Why are you allowing it to happen?
- Where do you draw the line?
Think about what you might be allowing to happen, and stop that shit now! Censorship comes in all forms. Speech and appearance are probably the top two that you and I have to deal with.
In my opinion, us asskickers should be in a constant “Ready. Aim. Fire.” mode and let the chips falls where they may. Free speech and freedom of expression in your business and personal life is all that matters in the Buckster’s opinion.
Say what you want. Do what you want. Dress how you want.
Let’s learn from these pansy-ass corporations that whore themselves out for a frickin’ buck. The lesson is this… don’t be like them!
Be yourself. Be original. Speak your mind. Live an uncensored life.
