I’d drink the white tears ensuing, but my doctor says that much salt is bad for my health. Ben & Jerry’s announces its support of BLM, allocating a portion of its proceeds to non-profits working to help black voters overcome voter suppression:
“We believe that saying Black lives matter is not to say that the lives of those who serve in the law enforcement community don’t. We respect and value the commitment to our communities that those in law enforcement make, and we respect the value of every one of their lives.
But we do believe that — whether Black, brown, white, or blue — our nation and our very way of life is dependent on the principle of all people being served equal justice under the law. And it’s clear, the effects of the criminal justice system are not color blind.”
Ten cool points if you can guess what happened next. Got your bingo cards ready?
Somebody call the whaaambulance.
I don’t know how people even have the patience to explain this shit anymore, but I’m glad there are folks out there doing good work.
As for Ben & Jerry’s, I think I’ll have some ice cream for dinner.
