AmeriKKKa gaslights black people.

That’s it. That’s the post.

Seriously, though. Now that America is having her racial awakening and realizing just how inherently racist she really is, we have companies and celebrities and everyone else jumping on the #BlackLivesMatter bandwagon.

Should these moves be applauded or are they simply superficial gestures so “the blacks” will shut the fuck up? Let’s discuss.

100% superficial. It’s all brand building. They’re still going to exploit their employees by underpaying them or screw with their hours so they don’t have to give them benefits and all that crap. They all want the easy out and they also want to monetize public sentiment. Maybe some smaller companies actually live those values but most large corporations also exploit Black and Brown labor all over the globe so a public statement or co-opting a hashtag doesn’t mean shit.
