He obviously isn't part of Tump's protected groups. As far as I can tell that consists of his family, Vladimir Putin, and white supremists (the base of his base).

it is of note that he is African American
Which explains why he resigned, but I really don't think Trump cares one way or another. Trump sucking up to these groups has nothing to do with him being a racist or not. He is just an opportunistic POS with the moral/ethical backbone of a hyena.

Why is it of note? If that tweet counts as 'goes after' he's gone after plenty of non-minorities.
Not everything is racism
was part of the CEO's personal choice of resignation and concerns with Trump....was pointing out CEO said he had a personal conflict with Trump. Not that Trump had an issue with him because the color of his skin

Then why say anything about his race. You are implying by saying he is AA that Trump had a problem with him because of that when that had nothing to do with it.

You got proof he is protecting white supremacists or Putin? Last I checked he denounced the violence in NC. Go ahead I'll be waiting :)
Exactly, instead of disavowing neonazis as the un-American scum that they are, he disavowed "violence."

Further given the opportunity to disavow Nazis in the follow-up questions, he did not. Exactly the opposite of presidents in the past, like the video of Reagan shown clearly disavowing Nazis and all that they stand for.

If you cannot see how a hate group like that, typically vilified by politicians of both parties, would not see that as protection then you are blind.

This couldn't be just them making excuses could it? It might be that they manufacture their products overseas and they were being pushed to move them to the USA .

Under armor from investors website http://investor.underarmour.com/company/products.cfm
"Many of the specialty fabrics used in our products are technically advanced textile products developed by third parties. The fabric used to manufacture our products is sourced by our manufacturers from suppliers pre-approved by us.

Substantially all of our products are manufactured by unaffiliated manufacturers. In 2006, our products were primarily manufactured in Asia, Central and South America and Mexico. All manufacturers are evaluated for quality systems, social compliance and financial strength by our quality assurance team prior to being selected on an ongoing basis. We strive to qualify multiple manufacturers where appropriate for particular product types and fabrications. We also actively seek out vendors that can perform multiple manufacturing stages, such as procuring fabric and providing finished products, helping us to reduce the cost of goods sold. We enter into a variety of agreements all of our manufacturers, including non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements, and we require that all of our manufacturers adhere to a code of conduct regarding quality of manufacturing and working conditions and other social concerns. We do not, however, have any long-term agreements requiring us to utilize any manufacturer, and no manufacturer is required to produce our products in the long term.

We also manufacture a limited number of products in our quick turn, Special Make-Up Shop, located at our distribution facility in Glen Burnie, MD. This 17,000 square-foot shop is stocked with our fabric in multiple colors to help build and ship products on tight deadlines for high-profile athletes, leagues, and teams. While the products manufactured in the quick turn, Special Make-Up Shop represent an immaterial portion of our total net revenues, we believe the facility helps us to provide superior service to select customers."


Intel is similar with most around the world . A development fab shop in Oregon and a fab shop in Arizona

Merck is not very telling with just a quick look. closed shops in NJ . Then open others
