Ben & Jerry’s Protests White Supremacy, Racist Ice Cream Eaters No-Likey

Ben & Jerrys goes a tough line against white supremacy and some buyers freak out
Since the murder of Georg Floyd and the resulting unrest, companies have finally come to realize that serious anti-racist work must be done. Better late than never for some. Many have made statements, pledged to donate money, and have even made great strides to improve their own white supremacist structures. The statement Ben & Jerry released last week was one that definitely didn't shred words.
"We all at Ben & Jerry are outraged at the murder of another black person by police officers in Minneapolis last week and the continued violent police reaction against demonstrators. We have to speak up," the statement began Victims of murder, marginalization and oppression based on their skin color and standing with those who seek justice through protests in our country, we have to say his name: George Floyd. ”
We have to deal with victims of murder, marginalization and oppression because of their skin color. Who could have a problem with this statement?

George Floyd's murder was the result of inhumane police brutality carried on by a culture of white supremacy.

In addition to its own pledge to support the Black Lives Matter movement, the company listed some government action points that could basically be summed up first by asking Trump to reject white Supremacists and secondly by asking Congress to form a commission to “Investigate the effects of slavery and discrimination from 1619 to the present day and recommend appropriate remedial measures. “Third, you should set up a national task force to draft bipartisan laws to end racist violence and increase police accountability. Most recently, the company called on the Department of Justice to "revive the Civil Rights Department as a staunch defender of the rights of the black and brown."
Vanilla Heath Bar Crunch eaters were pissed everywhere.

How exactly "create division"? By demanding that blacks not be murdered on the street by some police officers who have been conditioned to believe that they are judges, juries and executioners?
Ruth doesn't want to be "taught" about being anti-racist. Damn it, Ben, you ruined that for her.

I pay for your ice cream. That is our relationship. I do not expect to be informed by you and I am not interested in your political opinions. You have just lost a customer.

X Hiwayman X, who calls himself an "old, ugly country boy with tobacco chew whiskey", now has to buy private label ice cream because you believe that everyone has the right not to be shot on the street for minor crimes. Private labels don't even make Cherry Garcia, damn it.

CLOCKED! I'll get up here and say that Ben & Jerry probably never noticed you blocked them, but that's just a guess, Michael.
Here are a few more if you thought this kind of stupidity was a one-time thing:
What is the other reason, Lori? Are you allergic to yummy?
Listen: It's hellishly racist to protest a company that's against white dominance. Because why would anyone have a problem with that? What is this "split" that these people are talking about? Share something? If there are two sides here, one side believes that everyone should have the same rights, privileges, and opportunities, and I don't know that street officials do not shoot them down or strangle them - and the other side doesn't. If you don't think that all races are equal and legally deserve the same protection, you're racist. I don't make rules. I just point them out and shame people for being garbage. This is my job. Type of.
And please do not tell me out of love for God and all sacred things that this is not an issue of parenting. I have two black children. That is certainly a problem of parenting for me. And if you sit here and say that my two children, who have equal rights and rights under the law, are split, you can go fuck yourself. Forever.
COUNT BLACK LIFE.
