>>249572>Can you give better reasoning besides just saying so?
Because lip service is still a sort of backing. I'm saying that even if it was only that, it would still be the backing of every corporation, the holders of true power. It doesn't go the other way. But, of course, I'm suggesting that it is more than lip service.
By spreading the narrative that fuels the BLM protests and funding it.
>>Police brutality is partly due to corporate meddling>bla bla bla
What? I didn't say that. You're setting up strawmen. If you're going argue, quote what I actually said and explain your point, don't put your own arguments into my mouth.
>I agree that the capitalist system contributed to the creation of systematic racism and police brutality (because the purpose of governments has always been to protect the rich, not the people), but how do they benefit from it too?
I knew you'd make that argument but no, I'm not talking about that idea, which I in fact disagree. Capitalism is the great eraser of race, or any sort of collective identity that is not profitable to corporations. That is why corporations peddle internationalism and anti-racism, rather than nationalism and ethnocentrism. They are active proponents of a world that benefit their goals. Believing otherwise is naivety, and in fact it shows the mental gymnastics you have to go through to believe that at the same time we live in a fascist state controlled by corporations that can do as they please but also that corporations are always so powerless that they merely react in the most harmless way possible to the majority rather than actively deal with them. Our society is made of people who manufacture consent and support, and they are the powerful and the rich.
As for the advantages, there are innumerable material advantages. Like I said, there are billions donated or pledged, and they'll go to people and organizations who are interested in propagating this narrative. And that is direct money donation, the advantages that people received through other deals, or jobs and contracts that changed to more racially correct hands, or jobs positions like CDO (chief diversity officers) and many others that havePost too long.
