  1. These corporations didn’t have a problem with the voting restriction laws until the looming possibility of a boycott threatened their bottom line.

    1. @Normal Human Nor should they. It’s up to people to clearly state what they will stand for and what won’t fly. Then the corporation can decide whether making money is still their goal today and how do you best achieve that given the circumstances.

    2. Like I always say, speak with your wallet, it’s the only language they understand, especially now with the pandemic threatening their large profits.

    1. They told their white employees to “be less white.” Gee, I wonder if that maybe had something to do with it.

  2. It’s too bad we have to “waste” so much time with activism but it’s because of the overwhelming forces of evil that run full blast here 24/7

    1. Not evil, no one thinks “they” are evil. Money, greed, elitism, racism, selfishness: all apply. What happened to “Public Service”?

  3. Amazing how fast their attitudes change when you hit them in the WALLET !! Just shows how money hungry companies work…

    1. I was one of them.. then i became a republican bc as a latino i got sick of the victimization and socialist policies. I don’t regret it.

    2. @Glasgow Doors Interesting. No one does the politics of identity & perceived persecution like today’s Republican Party. The party of “personal responsibility”, is no more. (Then again, no one insults Republican voters like the Republican Party & right wing media do, mainly via gaslighting & projection.)

  4. Boycott Boycott Boycott! Spend your money elsewhere. Support communities affected by this oppressive legislation.

    1. I think its even more bonkers that people expect the corporations to help MORE than they’re elected politicians?! I feel like THAT’S a statement too….

  5. the drink machine at work carries Coke products, guess I will be bringing other brands from home. Bye Coke. Bye Home Depot.

    1. It was frustrating for me for all of one day. There’s a Coke machine at my place of work and I like drinking Coke a lot. But I didn’t touch it. When I found out about this, I didn’t touch a drop of Coke from that day on. It has only been rough for one day. So far I’m good without it

  6. This corporations only speak a good game, but they do nothing to follow up. We the people need to boycott these corporations that do nothing to help change the direction that these laws are going into. In any case, it is such a shame that corporations have more voice than the people. The lesson here people, spend your money with the businesses that have your back. Shop the mom and pop stores as often as you can.

  7. Thank you delta and coke thank you very very very much but yall know very well you can do so much more to help prevent this

  8. to all those below who say Coke out, Pepsi in, Home Depot out, Lowes in, Delta out, United in,
    it behooves you to find out if your option is headquartered in a state (and there are, last I heard,
    26 of them) that also has new (or old) restrictive voting laws on the table, or in the books…
    jessayin…
    and bear in mind that, support local is almost always the best option

  9. So Delta, has had a change of mind. What about coke? So what you’re saying we should have a change of heart. We will think about it. maybe later. After you make some real noise. Ok we are reasonable.
