Is Serena a Socially Responsible Individual?

We all know about Nike's "production shops" in third world countries.

By wearing the NIKE logo on her shirt is Serena saying she will take 'profit: at all cost'?

How socially responsible is that of Serena?

It is as responsible as JHH, who wears Adidas. We all know about Adidas using very young childes in India and China, to product their material.
The list can go on and on.

Good job!!!!! I'm glad that you are single-handedly bringing the Williams Sisters down!!!!! Also, don't fail to mention that they endorse Wrigley's gum. Everybody knows that the sugar from the gum is drawn from little baby snails who deserve to live too.

Is the topic to talk about Nike or to bash Serena? cause it's seems more of the later to me.
Don't you have better things to do with your life? (If you have one)

So are Lindsay Davenport, Mary Pierce, Daniela Hantuchova, Amelie Mauresmo, and Maria Sharapova bad people for wearing Nike? No. Neither is Serena. Get over it.

What about Lebron James? Michael Jordan? Andre Agassi? Tiger Woods? Daniela Hantuchova? Marion James? They are all Nike representatives and I did see you pinpointing them about social responsibility. Unfortunately, slave labor exists in the world today, and corporations like Nike, Disney, Reebook, Microsoft, Adidas, etc all take advantage of it. It is like Sophiane said the list can go on and on.

Honestly, your "hating" on Serena Williams is getting old. You seem to enjoy criticizing her without noticing that other players have the exact same behavior. Perhaps you're envious? I can't tell, but find something else to do.

I think the topic is very clearly outlined in the title of the thread. Kindly read it again.

I am sorry, I did not realize that Michael Jordan, Lebron James and Andre Agassi are female tennis players.

Daniela Hantuchova clearly does not have the 'power' of Serena in terms of raising society's awareness.
IF you would like to discuss them, please make a new thread. Thank you.

How economically exploitive and environmentally destructive are the clothes in YOUR wardrobe?

The food you eat?

The products you buy?

I think she's probably no more or less socially responsible than the rest of us.

I also think Sofiane read the title and intent of this thread just right

These are good questions for everyone to ask themselves. Including Serena.
