[This is from Patreon. I find it shocking how many American businesses are falling over their own feet in order to stand by these blacks … apparently. Black American politics is a load of nonsense really. I will discuss this more later. It also shows the tremendous weakness of Capitalism! Jan]
We’re enraged and saddened by the persistent racism that permeates our society — but our feelings won’t fix the problem. As a company and a community, Patreon has a platform with the power to drive change, and if we fail to leverage that platform, we become part of the problem.
To help in the fight against racism and police brutality, we’re donating $50,000 to Black Lives Matter and other organizations on the front line. We’re also going to increase our financial support to creators of color on Patreon through internal employee programs, and invest to boost diversity among our own ranks, so our team looks more like the community we serve. You can learn more in this blog post from Jack, our CEO.
Today and forever, Patreon stands with our Black creators and with Black people everywhere. We stand with all the courageous people fighting for equality. We stand with the voices calling for change, reform and the end of racial injustice.
