'Woke' Social Justice-Convicted Companies Change Marketing Strategies to Respect Black Consumers
It was just announced by PepsiCo, owner of Quaker Oats, that Aunt Jemima will be retired. Her namesake, the country's favorite brand of syrup and pancake mix, will finally reflect our modern sensibilities. The acknowledgement was made in clear terms by Kristin Kroepfl, chief marketing officer, that the friendly smiling mammy, around since the 1890s (and awkwardly updated in 1989 for the 1990s) is "based on a racial stereotype". The new name of the soon-to-be re-issued product has not been revealed.
Incidentally, there has been some controversy over Uncle Ben's brand of parboiled rice for many years. However no plans are known regarding a change to his image. Mars Inc. states that he's based on an actual person, a rice grower by the name of Gordon L. Harwell, a black entrepreneur who supplied a high-quality grade to the Armed Forces during World War II. In 2007 the character was promoted to "The Chairman of the Board" in an ad campaign. That would seemingly be the justification for keeping Uncle Ben as he is.
Nike continues to support Colin Kaepernick, the controversial African- American NFL player who was shunned by the league for his displays of kneeling during The National Anthem. An ad he did for said sportswear company in 2018 was revived after the George Floyd incident and gained renewed popularity. An updated survey done on consumer response to the commercial showed that almost half of those originally opposed to its message or messenger now see it positively - even the most conservative viewers.
After Mr Kaepernick's four-year absence from the game more than half of its fans are petitioning for a team to take him on. Despite the objections of a core group of traditionalists who still find his actions to be anti-American, the NFL has decided to make concessions. Its commissioner Roger Goodell made a public statement to that effect. It appeared that he was reluctant or altogether insincere in doing so to many. The President of the United States tweeted his opposition to the move, with questioning its adherence to our patriotism.
But in the meantime Nike carries on with its objectives. Its general division pledged 40 million dollars to remedying racial inequality and other social justice-based issues and the sub-brand owned by Michael Jordan will contribute 100 million. The new CEO John Donahue announced that Juneteenth, a holiday celebrating the end of slavery in America, will be a paid day off for its workers.
The travel and fashion industries have jumped on board the Good Ship Justice as well; but with mixed results.
Airbnb, the site offering use of private homes to member guests reiterated that it will do more to curb discrimination at the time of booking. The travel journal, AFAR, posted this as the subject of a notice:
"AFAR Is Too White—and We Plan to Change That".
Famous celebrity stylist and fashion entrepreneur Rachel Zoe for several days on end has made the focus of her web magazine's features / e-mail newsletters the work of up-and-coming Black designers. Virgil Abloh, who is also Black, the owner of the brand Off-White and the principal designer for Louis Vuitton men's line, bowed under pressure when he received pushback for criticizing the actions of those Floyd supporters turned rioters who looted the Vuitton stores.
Though it's deemed by many that Abloh spoke with the most tact that could be applied, he inevitably apologized for speaking out and donated money to the bail fund for his legal adversaries. A quote from The Business of Fashion, a trade magazine, reads, "People responding to looting but not to black cries for change is irresponsible and dismissive."
It's obvious from the recent change in corporate response that social controversies (legitimate or not) are known to be bad for business.
UPDATE: Mars Inc. has conceded to the need to review the image of its Uncle Ben's line.

A Big Black Attack - Race-Baiting in America
It seems that so much more often than we field racial epithets hurled at us by White Supremacist groups such as the KKK and Neo-Nazis, we Blacks encounter the patronizing and pathetic attempts of White Liberals to safeguard our "delicate" sensibilities and repair our self-damaged reputations.
Several days ago Senator and former Vice President Joe Biden made a completely tactless statement in the effort to cement his support with Black voters. The Democratic nominee has been known (and mocked) for his awkwardness in both his physical interactions with others (especially with women) and in speechmaking. He has repeatedly made what are universally deemed to be off-base comments in answering the most simple and casual of inquiries, earning him the nickname of "Gaffey". In a 2009 article posted on the website of NBC 4, DC's broadcast affliate, the title reads "Biden Annoying Obama More Than Ever". An excerpt from said states, "... [he is] a man with a talent for saying exactly the wrong thing in any situation."
The aforementioned gaffe was expressed in an interview within an installment of a podcast called "The Breakfast Club" hosted by Charlemagne tha God. It was stunning. And again, though Mr. Biden is known for his lack of verbal finesse, he should have known better than to say this:
"Well I tell you what, If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black."
So, Joe Biden never having been black himself can determine what Blackness is for all the people of our color? Why should he have been like that sassy Black Know-It-All Sistah with her hand on her hip? And are Blacks supposed to mindlessly follow the others wherever they would go like lemmings heading toward the edge of a steep cliff? Or are we all just sheep in a heavily politicized pasture waiting for the wolf to gobble us up unless our Good White Shepard comes in to save us?
In addition, these forgotten remarks from previous years were made by Mr. Biden:
"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," Biden said in relation to Obama. "I mean, that's a storybook, man."
"We got a real clear picture of what they all value," Biden said. "Every Republican's voted for it. Look at what they value and look at their budget and what they're proposing. Romney wants to let the - he said in the first hundred days he's going to let the big banks once again write their own rules, 'unchain Wall Street.' They're going to put y'all back in chains."
Though the second quote in the passage just above would be taken out of context if assigned a racial connotation, it and the reaction to it still reflects both our insensitivity and our hypersensitivity to ethnic stereotypes.
The image imposed on us, partly by others and partly by ourselves, is so insulting and demeaning. Things Biden touted remind me of the time when many Whites said that we all looked alike. If memory serves correctly that cliche was referenced by Carroll O'Connor's Archie Bunker (or a corresponding character) in an episode of All in the Family. But contrary to the somehow lovable biggot's perception, we do not all look alike, think alike or vote alike.
But somehow in the meantime we as Blacks at-large have paid a false debt to The Left and its Progressive and often radical activists. Most of us have thought that we owe them loyalty and total solidarity - especially if we want to keep all of the goodies that the government has to offer. And several representatives of the Democratic party have come to collect their own assumed entitlement over the years through grandstanding for it in our churchs' pulpits.
Blacks are told that "The Man" is out to get us while we let him lead us by our collective hand. And many of us rail against the establishment, wanting to tear it down, without the vaguest idea of how to reform it.
As with Reverse Racism we are also guilty of Reverse Race-Baiting. We assert that any and all who do not agree with the objectionable actions of militant Black demonstrators, or, opinions of controversial Black public figures (especially elected officials) are by their nature racist. We will not acknowledge that not all of our concerns (and especially theirs) are race-based.
What we do not need in any civilzation is anarchy. Yet during the marches over George Floyd's death the streets were filled with violence and general lawlessness, overshadowing the efforts of legitimate protesters. It appears that only a few of us realize that a segment of our own community grossly distorted and permanently marred George's memory. Young Ultra-Leftists (and pure opportunists) saw theft, generalized destruction of property, arson (a capital crime) and physical assault as appropriate outlets for their frustrations and ambitions - and their enablers - politicians and the Hollywood Elite - foot the bill for their bail money. There is evidence to suggest that the most disruptive actioners were staged by paid agents hired by the likes of megamogul George Soros.
How will we ever overcome the notion that we're a bunch of heathen savages who need to be manhandled by the police (and otherwise minimized) if we keep rioting, burning and looting? How will Black Lives Matter if we continue to present ourselves as enemies of society and an outright nuisance?
Even the celebrated Black fashion designer Virgil Abloh (owner of the label Off-White and a creative director at Louis Vuitton) was chastised for criticizing merely the acts of looters who raided his stores. After receiving immense pressure from his "peers" he acquiesced to their demand to be excused for their behavior and granted $50 toward their release. As quoted from an article in The Business of Fashion, a trade magazine, "People responding to looting but not to black cries for change is irresponsible and dismissive."
What's irresponsible and dismissive is the failure to hold grown Black folks to account for their own choices. It's as though we're the strange Freaky Friday-like cross between the justified and righteously indignant victim and the cranky and bratty child who acts out because he was kept up past his bedtime. But as long as we misbehave there will be someone to spank us for it.
The protests of the 60s and 70s put on by our parents placed a distinct and strict emphasis on non-violence. And it's not that riots didn't occur; but they were condemned when they did. Our chief examples were Dr. Martin Luther King and college students seated at sit-ins; not arsonists and Antifa. We cannot expect constructive change in the midst of destroying respect for ourselves and others.
And displays like those of football player Colin Kaepernick (who kneels during The National Anthem) only serve to demonstrate a disregard for our patriotic traditions and to offend the majority of the Americans that grew up with them - White and Black. There were always better means to specifically and therefore more effectively address the problem of police brutality and racial inequality. Refusing to engage in a practice that has cultural significance but no direct or indirect correlation with law enforcement will not strike the targeted goal. Also, it must be understood that our nation and the police on the whole are not copeable for the misdeeds of rouge cops - only those officers and their departments are.
What we need now more than ever is what unifies; not what divides. Though we speak to being of different races, we are in fact only of one such group - The Human Race. Our ethnicities are only colorful varieties of the same species... But we are so much more than glorified animals - so let's act like it.
Derek Chauvin - A Disgrace To The Uniform: The Embattled Officer Did More Than Kill George Floyd
Mr. Chauvin, now ironically in a jail in which he put so many others, has and always had serious issues. It is apparent that for some reason they were all but completely ignored.
The 44 year old, in his 19-year career with the Minneapolis Police Department, was the subject of 17 investigations and the respondent to 12 formal complaints against him. The documents pertaining to said are heavily redacted but still reveal pressing problems.
His most obvious display of excessive force occurred in 2007. It involved a mother and her infant (with the family's german shepherd) on their way home from a local grocery store. Officer Chauvin and an unnamed partner forced the mother to stop. Initially she was unsure of the cause. It was cited as her driving 10 miles over the speed limit. Then without another word exchanged the officers opened her door and began to pull her out of the minivan - well before she had the opportunity to unlatch her seatbelt. She was pulled through her restraints out to the street and then into the back of their squadcar. With her child crying loudly in the background she insistantly asked why she was arrested. After a long period of his refusal to answer Chauvin muttered that her vechicle "fit a description".
There were also incidents with shootings in which his use of firepower was questionable. 1 of the 3 or so reported described him as chasing and firing at a man who was already running from another (presumably non-police) shooter.
Those things coupled with the fact that he was perpetually in massive debt (which was brought into his marriage at its start) and the years-long dissatisfaction of and relational distance from his wife evidently took its toll on his mindset and the community he swore to protect and serve.
It was said by onlookers (primarily the couple's neighbors) that the Chauvins' relationship had been under visible strain for years and that Chauvin's wife had been looking for some time for the right opportunity to divorce him. Conflicting schedules and conflicting views caused further estrangement between them. Also Mrs. Chauvin bore concern for the children she had from a previous marriage. What was done to George Floyd was the last straw, finally giving her the courage to leave. She in disgust over her former husband's actions and the desire to make a clean break decided to forego spousal support and petitioned the court to change back to her previous name.
After analysis of the video that rocked the world, Mr. Chauvin's indictment was necessarily moved up from manslaughter to second-degree murder plus the previous charge. A group of bystanders are heard pleading for Mr. Floyd's life as Chauvin continues to drive his knee into his victim's neck, fatally asphyxiating him. The other three officers on the scene were taken in as co-conspirators and will share the same fate as the first. As appalling as Chauvin's example is, it seems that his presence on the force and this case are just the tip of the iceberg.
Major Study Says Officially Misreported COVID-19 Statistics Were A False Alarm - Americans Are Scared Over Minor Risks
As reported on a podcast entitled "The Daily Daily Caller" (hosted by Derek Hunter and affliated with Daily Caller, a prominent Conservative news magazine) the jig is up on The Coronavirus. Though its impact has had a devastating effect on The American People, it has not directly impacted as much of our population as we have been led to believe.
Only 39 of the 50 US states were respondents in the said survey. The remaining eleven were reticent to report anything, with the prevailing coincidence being that their governors were Democrats. It's found that while Conservatives have been taking ordinary precautions, Liberals have demonstrated an especially stringent approach. The old maxim rightly says "it's better to be safe than to be sorry". However, it appears that the Progressives have progressed past the point of being useful in our shared crisis.
The data taken, which is touted to be a strict result of number crunching only, shows that 43% of COVID-19 fatalities come from what is merely 0.6% of the general population - i.e.; nursing home residents.
It was further stated that such controversy arose over both the detailing of the involved statistics and the handling of protocols set for the homes that Governor Cuomo of New York was forced to take down his published directives for said from the state's website. That development would suggest that there were serious issues with the collection and interpretation of Coronavirus stats all along.
It is still widely asserted by leading epidemiologists that the virus is of much greater concern to the elderly than to the younger of us - and that the status of a person's health before contracting COVID-19 is the key determining factor as to whether or not the infection becomes lethal. Also, best practices in hygiene have done their job.

California Sues 'Criminal Minds' for Habitual Sexual Harassment
An apparent culture of endemic sexual abuse on the set of the highly-popular CBS show was brought to the attention of the state through the mass firing of a dozen production assistants. The program, which aired its last episode in February, has had a years-long issue with the alleged exploitation of its crew by its director of photography, Gregory St. Johns. It is claimed by virtually all but the accused and those named as his co-conspirators that said violations were openly committed and fully tolerated by senior executives.
The investigation by the Department of Fair Employment and Housing cites that the executive team took no measues whatsover - punitive or corrective - to stem the harassment except to dismiss its subjected employees. A bevy of indictments comes from California itself, including that of discrimination and retaliation.
When St. Johns was finally removed in light of what was uncovered, he was still given an "enhanced severance package" by ABC Studios, the Walt Disney Company subsidiary in charge. Despite St. Johns having been sued privately just prior to the state's action on the same misbehavior, he was not discharged until the initial reporting of this account was done by Variety Magazine. The Hollywood trade journal offers several exclusives on this story's developments.
Variety.com has, of course, published extensive details which involve a group e-mail notification to tip off staffers and the dumping of a whole department as payback for whistleblowing. It seems the most "Criminal Minds" shown were those in the top ranks of Disney and / or CBS.
25% of U.S. Restaurants Will Remain Closed... Forever
Said is the very bleak projection made by the leading online restaurant reservation booking platform, OpenTable. Through its own system-based statistical analysis it counts reservations as having gone down by 95% from where they were at this point last year. Of course, this State of Affairs is due almost entirely to the Covid-19 outbreak and local ordinances which restrict operation under its influence. (However, though dine-in is on a separate track than carry out, the situation is not helped by the fact that the consumer is getting accustomed to the convenience of delivery.)
By way of force the former diners are discovering "the joy of cooking" and even baking. There is currently a shortage of flour (in all its varieties) that is readily evidenced in any grocery store.
The Do-It-at-Home and / or Do-It-Yourself culture imposed by the Coronavirus has / have created new and possibly long-standing habits; due largely in part to the economic insufficiency caused by mass unemployment. Eating out is something that we do only with discretionary income, and as many have had none to spare lately, there has been none to give to an ailing industry that relies so heavily on the personal prosperity of its customer base.
Unfortunately so many popular spots, from Mom and Pop-run places, established 50 years ago, to the hot new bistros with their 4 star chefs, are taking a nosedive into oblivion. And patrons are just as sad as owners to see them go.
It goes without saying that many of the earliest protesters of the Coronavirus-based shutdowns were restauranteurs. They felt the impact of the virus well before most of the rest of us did. In addition to losing the primary basis of their revenue, through which to pay themselves and their employees, the owners of the now depressed businesses still face having to pay for all the overhead involved - from credit-bound purchases or rental of equipment to overdue lease payments for the commercial space occupied.
Restaurants lost more than $30 billion in sales during March and $50 billion in April, according to the National Restaurant Association. As of 2019, an estimated 9.6 million Americans worked in Food Service. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics at the time reported that:
"Employment of food and beverage serving and related workers is projected to grow 14 percent from 2018 to 2028, much faster than the average for all occupations. Job prospects in most dining establishments will be excellent because many workers leave the occupation each year, resulting in numerous job openings."
There will definitely be a radical shift in what that report details. There is some hope in the fact that diners from states like Arizona and Texas (where restaurants reopened several days ago) told OpenTable that they look forward to going out again... but the associated numbers are still at a very low count as compared to last year.

The Plan for Our Total Recovery from The Coronavirus - Vaccination Efforts Against COVID-19
The President and leading health officials are working feverishly (no pun intended) on a plan to roll out vaccines for the virus; for as soon as it is at all possible to deploy them. The selection for U.S. use has been narrowed down to four or five serums that are still in development. 2 are yielding great promise in the eyes of researchers and may see the end of investigation by July. (China is currently testing several of at least 100 formulas in existence.) Of course, caution must be used when administering a brand new drug to a mass population - but the frustration over the delay is mounting for the Trump Administration and the International Community.
In April a consortium of 16 biopharmaceutical companies and government health agencies led by the U.S. National Institutes of Health introduced Activ, or Accelerating Covid-19 Therapeutic Interventions and Vaccines, to jumpstart those efforts.
Days ago Mr. Trump announced "Operation Warp Speed", installing GlaxoSmithKline's chief executive, Moncef Slaoui, as the head of the initiative. In addition, Gustave Perna, Commanding General of the U.S. Army Material Command, is onboard as its officer of operations. The target date for conpletion of The White House's campaign, with full national distribution of dosings to the general public, is in six months from its launch - that is, January. The National Institutes of Health set up uniform guidelines on the trials for and manufacturing of the vaccines so as to aid in expediting the process as well as to safeguard it.
There are many supporters of the goal, such as Microsoft founder Bill Gates, and vocal critics of the plan and its timetable, especially Rick Bright, a self-proclaimed whistleblower and the former director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), an office of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. He and the Trump Administration came to blows when his claim was asserted before the Congress in regard to being ignored on 2019 warnings about Covid-19.
Dr. Bright is definitely of the belief that nothing that is both an effective and safe treatment can be created so quickly. However, when addressing Congress in 2018 he stated, "No one can rival BARDA's success in expanding capacity and pushing new products to the marketplace." Other experts such as Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and Health and Human Services Secretary, Alex Azar, see reaching a solution in 12 - 18 months. Strategic emphasis and substantial funding are still placed on long-term virus detection testing.
As for the anti-malarial drugs some have held in high esteem - chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine - there seems to be more objecton to the purported side effects than confidence in the restorative properties of them. However, President Trump, a staunch supporter of the "Right to Try" laws, allowing terminally ill patients access to experimental therapies, will likely continue to press for whatever demonstrates a change in outcomes.

More people have died from coronavirus in the United States than during the First World War
The death toll from coronavirus in the United States has exceeded the number of American soldiers killed in World War I. According to Johns Hopkins University, as of June 17, the number of deaths in the United States was almost 117 thousand, more than 2.13 million were infected. The outbreak is on the rise in some states.
Such figures exceed the number of people lost by the United States during the First World War - 116,516. Of them - more than 53 thousand people died in battle, and more than 63 thousand - due to disease, mainly the 1918 flu epidemic.

It's only four points:
The authorities will work for the economic well-being of minorities, their access to capital for small businesses will be increased.
The American leader promised to address the problem of unequal access to health services.
Trump said he is working on a decree that "will encourage U.S. police departments to meet the latest professional standards in the use of force, including de-escalation tactics. In addition, the White House again calls on Congress to raise the issue of allowing the right to choose a school. "Because access to education is a civil rights issue of our time," Trump said.

Trump reported on the work on the decree, which "will encourage police departments in the U.S. to meet the most modern professional standards in the use of force, including tactics of de-escalation of conflicts. In addition, the White House again calls on Congress to raise the issue of allowing the right to choose a school. "Because access to education is a civil rights issue of our time," Trump said.
The President also stressed that he would not deprive the police of funding, but, on the contrary, guaranteed that they would be well trained and equipped.
The United States saw a wave of protests and riots after the death of African-American police officer George Floyd in Minneapolis. Despite the fact that the four police officers involved in the detention had been dismissed, people had taken to the streets accusing the authorities of racism.

17-06-20.-Juan Barreto, fundador del partido Redes, afirmó durasnte una entrevista en Unión Radio que el nuevo Consejo Nacional Electoral designado el pasado viernes por el Tribunal Supremo de Justicia "no es el ideal tampoco, pero es mucho más equilibrado que el anterior". Consideró que hay aspectos «favorables» dentro de la nueva dirección del ente comicial. "Que el CNE tenga aguas abajo en los rectores suplentes, en la Junta electoral principal y en la Junta de totalización también es una buena noticia", dijo. Destacó también que se saldrá del régimen de las mayorías en el que quien ganaba se lo llevaba todo "a un régimen de representación proporcional que permite más diversidad en la representación de las distintas fracciones". Recordó que no es la primera vez que los rectores del CNE son nombrados por medio del Tribunal Supremo de Justicia (TSJ). Criticó las últimas acciones de sectores opositores en la Asamblea Nacional. "Boicotearon la posibilidad de que se creara desde la Asamblea Nacional un nuevo CNE y cuando lo asume el TSJ producto de una negociación democrática (…) no lo aceptan", agregó. Sobre la decisión judicial contra la dirección nacional de Acción Democrática consideró que hay una doble moral en el discurso porque no se ha permitido la renovación a lo interno de sus filas.

Video / Shakira se luce sobre una patineta - Panorama.com.ve
La colombiana compartió la aventura en su cuenta de Instagram.
Shakira sigue ideando formas de divertirse en medio de la cuarentena en su casa de Barcelona. Hace poco su esposo, el futbolista Piqué, reveló que la colombiana comenzó a estudiar filosofía por internet. Pero ahora la artista decidió hacer algo con un poco más de acción. Por eso compartió un vídeo en su cuenta de Instagram mostrando sus progresos como 'skater'. "Mi nuevo hobby: era esto o la alfarería", comentó junto al clip en el que demuestra tener bastante controlado el equilibrio básico y los giros sobre la patineta. No es su primera vez. Hace unos años Shakira se inició en el mundo del skate acompañando a sus hijos a dar una vuelta por los alrededores de su hogar de Esplugues de Llobregat. Vestida con ropa deportiva negra, y ataviada con casco, rodilleras y coderas, a Shakira se ve en el video rodando desenvuelta por el paseo marítimo de Gavà. Uno de sus colegas, Alejandro Sanz, respondió a la 'travesura' de la barranquillera con un comentario en Instagram. "Vuela amiga, vuela" le escribió el cantante español. La actividad artística de Shakira no se detiene y hace apenas unos días anunció su colaboración en el nuevo disco de Black Eyed Peas.
