  1. “Corporations” and “businesses” are soulless things that only care about money; they do not care about ANY lives, let alone black lives. Therefore, “corporations” and “businesses” will SAY whatever it takes to make money, or, at the very least, not to lose money. The really important thing is to watch who gets their POLITICAL CONTRIBUTIONS.

    • @Texasforever NO YOU PUNKED YOURSELF BECAUSE BOTH PARTIES ARE THE KKK BUT IT’S. OVER NOW BECAUSE THE KKK ARE BEING CALLED OUT THE WORLD IS WATCHING THIS IS WHAT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR CENTURIES SO GUESS WHAT? YOU’RE BUSTED.

  2. Peebles: “when they founded this company” Freudian slip.

  3. Is this 1820 or 2020? In 200 years the USA still hasn’t grown up.

    • In 200,000 years the mentality of some humans hasn’t evolved. They still can’t get passed their differences and disagreements without getting violent. Not understanding that money, the economy, and the capitalist mentality could vanish from the earth and that everything necessary for life on earth would still be here is SERIOUSLY not evolved…, more like regression.
      Not understanding that any system that induces monetary dependence and voluntary submission to those with the most money is a beast of Revelation system is just plain dumb.

    • you can always move to a different country if you have it soooo bad?

    • @j 76 YES THE COUNTRY IS COLLAPSING BECAUSE OF ALL THE EVIL THAT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR CENTURIES. GOD DON’T LIKE UGLY.

    • @Joe V UNTIL YOU REALIZE THE RACISM IN THIS COUNTRY YOU WILL FOREVER BE STUCK IN YOUR IGNORANCE THINKING THAT DONALD. TRUMP ISN’T RACIST. THAT’S. JUST LIKE SAYING YOU’RE. NOT RACIST. SMFH.

    THE ONLY THINGS MATTER AT THE TOP IS MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY

    • ​@Land of the Free Compare the following to 9/11/2001 and the right wing dubya and company’s leadership of America on and after 9/11/2001.

      “Why of course the people don’t want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don’t want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But after all it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or fascist dictatorship, or a parliament or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peace makers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”

      ― Hermann Goering

      Bushco and the right wing took the page right out of the NAZI playbook. That’s YOUR closet fascist party, and it becomes more and more obvious every time a right winger speaks.

    I think the businesses are trying but are not sure what you say.

    • my business will NOT cater to only one race. If you work for me you wont be wearing anything saying Black lives matter or you will be fired..I sell guns and ammunition….I dont sell political issues or beliefs and NEVER will!!

    • ​@Roboman Robo Things do even out in the end if you raise everything at once and encourage capitalization. The proper analogy is not the framing of a house, but more akin to filling cement into a foundation(or putting sand into a hollow space with uneven ground) – the cement or sand follows the path of least resistance, lifting up areas that would need small amounts of capital for larger gains, and eventually level ground emerges at the top without any discrimination necessary. Trying to fill in gaps individually would not only be a painstaking and inefficient process, but would also require a constant game of whack-a-mole as one part becomes more level than the other and you end up filling a different spot needlessly.

      If it were me on the other side, I would demand of myself pure individual responsibility – I would be well aware, hopefully, as I am now, that inequality and unfairness exists in almost all aspects of life. It is universal, the entire world runs on unequal processes working in tandem, and that is especially true of the human brain and the human condition. There is no better way to level the playing field than to advocate individual responsibility from the ground up, removing victimhood and instead encouraging each person to do the best they can to rise above their challenges, and with each misstep or perceived injustice, to instead look inward and ask questions than to blanket entire groups as the victims or the oppressors.

      So if it were me, I would ask myself what the precise value of my work is and begin from that point. I am a software developer, so I would begin looking at each line of my code and demanding that I improve for each bout of perceived injustice I received from my out-group peers. If it’s not the color of my skin, then it’s a smaller neuron count, a mental disability, or simply being an inefficient learner. That’s unfairness, but it’s life, and the more issues you turn into “Us Versus Them” dichotomies, the more opaque the view of your own abilities and product is. The most pleasing thing to me is the product I produce and how hard I work at it to make something wholesome that other people want to buy or see as my value. That’s the emphasis of individual responsibility I would emphasize, and that’s the type of holistic strategy I would use over Black Lives Matter to achieve justice and more equality.

    • I reiterate: #AllLivesMatter , not Black Lives Matter.

    • Look it’s really simple at the end of the day we all want to go to work and go home to our families. You can either see that and understand it or you cant. In this country no one should have to worry about going out and not coming home because some cop with a hard on for control killed you cause you didn’t give him the respect or whatever it was that he thought he was entitled to. We want to live peacefully just like everybody else and live our lives. What’s so hard about that?

    • @riles2626 Agreed. #AllLivesMatter very simple.

    • Sparky's Space | June 13, 2020 at 3:31 PM | Reply

      @Vhalrouge Larfouxe All lives should matter, but clearly they do not, if all lives mattered, black lives would matter, it is meant to draw attention to the fact that they are not treated equally, it is about them, not us, it is not meant to devalue our lives, is it meant to bring value to their’s.

      ​@Sparky’s Space It’s not the protests that turn people off. It’s the riots, and bullying public figures and corporations into making public statements supporting a cause. These corporations don’t want to make these statements. They are practically being forced to at gunpoint by radical leftists. You guys on the left have become tyrants, and normal Americans are scared of you.

    • It will soon turn into an antitrump protest and it will be bigger than ever.

    • my business will NOT cater to only one race. If you work for me you wont be wearing anything saying Black lives matter or you will be fired

    • Bob Bob you mean Candace Owen’s type black elders? Just because one elder makes a statement suddenly rewrites history? Africans till date have a very strong sense about family, and would never sell their family members for anything. The child soldiers that pushed us back from Somalia were joining those militia to prevent other militants from bullying their family. That’s why the first thing the slave owners attacked was the Black family structure.

    • cozy Cool most people won’t even believe it when you tell them the original jews were black. Moses would never have blended in as one of Pharaoh’s princes. Even Jesus’ parents ran to Egypt where they would blend in after Herod ordered the killing of babies. Samson in the Bible was described as having 7 locks of hair. Today, they call it dreadlocks.

    • They HELPED to build this country. Side by side with all the other races that lived here too

    • @Mulinaster imagine this for a moment. Your friend comes to you and says his dad died. What is your response to him? Do you say that it doenst matter all people die or do you recognize that in this very moment its him you need to be concerned about and show sympathy towards? Asking for a friend.

    • @Joshua Turpentine White girl you are missing the point. Wake up you have been strangling us for over 400yrs. George Floyd was the straw that broke the camel’s back it’s not just about George it’s a whole lot more than George. You’ve been living your privileged life so you would never understand.

      Expert witness, that’s my point, cutting personnel is not hiring. It also means that production is cut, so either production is being moved offshore, cutting more jobs, or the company is shrinking and profit taking.

      As long as profits and unchecked capitalism are all that matter to those businesses, they can go the way of everything else in this world that has failed; Capitalism’s days are numbered.

    • @Faub so you are going to bad mouth the very cities that out there taking a stand for #BLM. I would say they did a hell of a good job raising these people if you asked me. They have a heart unlike those that don’t get the need for change.

    • @get lost a Trump supporter ha

    • @Mulinaster they made up of a business plan that never includes the human condition in the calculation

    • @Sandy Allen If you don’t think productive value and “value add” ideals, which are an intrinsic part of self-actualization and human value, are not made into a business plan I don’t know what to tell you. Society does not run itself off of circle jerking each other off and far flung ideals of empathy. Money must meet value must meet the rubber on the road. The corporation as a “legal fiction” entity is quite necessary to provide momentum to human enterprise and entrepreneurism. Those that do not dare to be creative in how they make money and add value to the world are doomed to whine about others that do so with their own brains.
