Congratulations, corporate America. You’ve had blatant racists in your midst within the upper echelon of business. retail, and finance for years and you had no idea. Or did you? Were you always aware that your “respected” friends and enemies in Big Business think so low of Black people, that they feel they must protect them from the “bigoted” requirement of having identification in order to vote?
A new report from the NY Times shows just how racist corporate America is. Hundreds of companies, including some at the very top of the corporate food chain, have signed onto a condemnation letter that opposes the Georgia voting law or any law that prevents “any eligible voter from having an equal and fair opportunity to cast a ballot.” From the article:
Amazon, BlackRock, Google, Warren Buffett and hundreds of other companies and executives signed on to a new statement released on Wednesday opposing “any discriminatory legislation” that would make it harder for people to vote.
It was the biggest show of solidarity so far by the business community as companies around the country try to navigate the partisan uproar over Republican efforts to enact new election rules in almost every state. Senior Republicans, including former President Donald J. Trump and Senator Mitch McConnell, have called for companies to stay out of politics.
The statement was organized in recent days by Kenneth Chenault, a former chief executive of American Express, and Kenneth Frazier, the chief executive of Merck. A copy appeared on Wednesday in advertisements in The New York Times and The Washington Post.
Here’s the thing, and forgive me for stating the obvious, but neither the Georgia law nor any law that has been seriously proposed by any state in the last four decades fits their criteria. The Georgia law is, in fact, the epitome of “equal and fair opportunity” as it does not distinguish between races, genders, or any other type of classification. It is THEM, the corporate giants signing this letter, who are viewing people unequally and unfairly based on the color of their skin.
Regardless of race, any American citizen is capable of either meeting the very simple requirements of acquiring identification or they can receive help in doing so. Everyone. There is nobody at the DMV in any state who says, “Oh, you’re Black. I can’t give you an ID because of your race.”
This is simple stuff, folks. It’s absolutely mind-blowing and quite disturbing that in 2021, we still have so many influential people who believe in this type of belittling rhetoric. They feel they must swoop in and protect the poor Black people who can’t get an ID on their own. It’s sickening to see such blatant racism present in the United States of America.
According to Axios:
It’s the most concerted action yet by big business in opposition to GOP-sponsored bills at the state level that limit mail-in ballots, implement new voter ID requirements and slash registration options, among other measures.
Critics say the restrictions will disproportionately impact voters of color. Advocates of the bills have said they will secure the vote, and in some instances have cited former President Trump’s baseless allegations of voter fraud in the 2020 elections.
The signatories of the letter, which will appear in advertisements taking up two full pages in Wednesday’s New York Times and Washington Post, include General Motors, Netflix, Starbucks, Amazon, BlackRock, Google and Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett, among others.
Of course, what these corporations won’t tell you is that this has nothing to do with racism. It’s not about social justice. It’s not about fairness or equality or diversity or wokeness or any of the words whose meanings have been slaughtered in recent years by the radical left. This all comes down to corporations keeping their beloved Democratic Party in power for as long as the country can bear it. That wouldn’t be long if they’re unsuccessful in sustaining the voter fraud enabling rules that are in place today. If they’re successful in forcing the wool over enough people’s eyes, then the country definitely couldn’t bear it for long. Too much Democratic-Socialist rule will result in our nation’s unavoidable demise.
To those on the left who still have a true sense of fairness (as compared to the false “fairness” being pushed in this racist corporate letter), I sincerely ask that you wake up and stop allowing this charade to continue. Yes, the bullies in corporate America want to perpetuate the cheating atmosphere that has engulfed our elections for two decades with increasing severity every two years. Yes, this benefits your tribe. But wouldn’t it be better to win in the marketplace of ideas instead of “winning” in a rigged system that makes it impossible for Republicans to win? The way elections are run today is like a race in which biological males are allowed to compete with biological females. Oh, wait. That’s happening, too.
Do they realize how racist they are for believing Black people are less capable of getting identification? Let’s hope they’re just Democrat-party shills and they don’t actually believe their demeaning, bigoted stance.
