      You do realize that the vast majority of people on the left think this stuff is ridiculous and benefits nobody, and that most of that nonsense comes from tone-deaf businesses looking for cheap PR and pats on the back (and failing miserably), right?



      Twitter is the most left leaning of the major social media platforms. Read the responses to this tweet. Universally called out as a stupid gesture with no relevance to the actual issues being discussed. It’s pretty disingenuous to present this as some front line issue that people care about.

        What about the NBA no longer using the term owner? Just a PR move they are using as well?

                Agreed but let’s frame it the way it actually is: tone-deaf idiots in board meetings across the country looking for cheap PR and getting universally criticized for missing the point. This is not coming from the people so using it to discredit them and belittle their arguments is unfair.

                          True, but most of the things people are outraged about right now, are actually linked to racism and it's just been seen as "Ok" before now.

                              MLB is underrepresented in the South. The Atlanta Braves pretty much own the entire market.

                              It's foolish too because the South has a strong amateur talent base in high school and the two top collegiate conferences with the SEC and ACC.

                                There is way too much looking for racism right now, and its making the legitimate claims lose actual value.
