The ones in the best possible position to do more

  • I would generally agree in the case of paying lip service to social problems without also putting support and money to advocate for change or applying it to the company and their work at the very least. That said police brutality isn't exactly something that a company like EA throwing money at the issue does much towards fixing. At best they put money towards the lawyers and groups that struggle to see justice after the truth or lobby to get laws changed that in the current government won't. It's systemic issues within authorities of not reporting their particular and holding them accountable rather staying silent and with the authorities unions that allow it all to occur or in Mut 21 coins ways even encourage it from the repercussions being a slap on the wrist followed by being hired at another precinct showing them there is no consequences. Before even getting to laws and rulings such as qualified immunity which shield abusive cops and allow them to misuse their power . The majority of that EA and many capitalist companies are not able to do all that much about making it unfair to say they're in the best possible position to do much more.

    The ones in the best possible position to do more would be the assumed great cops by no more remaining quiet and enabling bad cops to eliminate their abuse of power or voting for better leadership for their unions that will not enable the behavior. But of course it's just words. Businesses will only ever do these things once public opinion has turned into one way. Even if all corporations stopped doing things wrong, it'll take a longlong time for this image of corporate America to reduce its tarnish. Part of what people might do is elect politicians who at least promise that they'll hold these corporations accountable. It probably wont happen alone. This would be a lot easier if a person like that could run for office successfully.

    Because regardless of the sentiment, this remains 100 percent a company and marketing maneuver. If they truly wanted to do something positive, they could do it without marketing their products while doing this. Because it is not genuine. This is not any different than the coronavirus commercials. They might have said nothing in any way. Instead, they attracted positive attention to the protests. That's good. Solidarity or they realize a decent chunk of their audience is obsessed with something more significant than a damn videogame? Man. These remarks really emphasize the nihilistic nature of reddit users. Yes, this is a provider. Yes, it has something to do with advertising. But Jesus, can't we be happy that companies are stating something? Do you not understand how much of an effect this could create? In the event the company ignored the situation, it would give every checked out mind the idea that what's happening is normal and routine.

    EA does not care about people that aren't investors. Eliminating Kaepernick's title from tunes in Madden two years in a row shows it. Businesses don't want one to defend them, let their lawyers do that work. EDIT: Let me be clear. But we should not praise a business for reaching the absolute bare minimum. It seems like throwing a party for when your friend says"Hey guys I'm not racist" after he said the N word a year ago. You are not cool and ethical for thanking corporations for not spitting on you. We should praise firms who show patterns of positivity. Feel free to disagree, but don't behave like this specific case is this incredibly complicated morally-grey situation. I mean I believed there were fairly strict regulations whose names and likeliness can be used in Madden. Just like Belicheck and Payton aren't in Madden because they aren't a part of the NFLCA and that is who EA has a contract with. They may need to cover Kap if his name is used and therefore are buy mut coins madden 21 probably avoiding that. That and Kap is not exactly welcome in the NFL world (not speaking about lovers ) anymore.
