Despite Corporate Virtue Signaling, Nike and Amazon Both Targeted by Rioters

Despite their best efforts to corporate virtue signal in favor of the rioters and looters currently tearing apart American cities, both Nike and Amazon were targeted anyway.

Last week, Nike tweeted a video in which the company urged people, “Don’t turn your back on racism,” “don’t pretend there’s not a problem in America” and demanding people “be part of the change.”

Within days footage emerged of rioters looting a Nike store, which is undoubtedly one of several that have been targeted over the last few days.

There’s an added layer of irony to the footage when you consider the fact that Nike used Colin Kaepernick, the face of the “take a knee” campaign, for its 2018 commercial in which Kaepernick asserted, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything. Just Do It.”

Nike made $6 billion dollars from the ad, so they’re probably not too fussed about a handful of their stores being looted. Supporting looters is more lucrative than denouncing them, even at the cost of comparatively minor property damage and stock loss.

Meanwhile, Amazon issued a statement from its official Twitter account yesterday declaring, “The inequitable and brutal treatment of black people in our country must stop. Together we stand in solidarity with the black community, our employees, customers, and partners – in the fight against systematic racism and injustice.”

They pledged their support for the rioters even as their own employees were being targeted by the mob.

Video footage out of Santa Monica, California shows an Amazon truck being ransacked by a group of what the media will no doubt describe as “white nationalists.”

“You can see the mob looting the Amazon delivery truck and knocking what looks like an old white lady to the ground while ripping the purse out of her hands in this video,” writes Chris Menahan.

Will Amazon denounce such attacks on their own staff or will they continue to support the looters?

The answer is obvious.

Bank of America Warns “Civil Unrest” Could Crash Global Economy

“Flashbacks to the days just before the French Revolution are all too real.”

In its latest Fund Manager survey, Bank of America warns that one of the biggest risks that could precipitate a global economic collapse is the prospect of mass “civil unrest.”

While the market is looking bullish thanks to several rounds of positive news regarding a COVID-19 vaccine, BofA Chief Investment Officer Michael Hartnett is telling investors that that sentiment is baked in and it’s now time to “sell the vaccine” in coming weeks/months as we think we’re close to “full bull”.

Coronavirus itself remains the biggest “tail risk” to the global economy for the 8th consecutive month, followed by the “tech bubble.”

However, what’s really raising eyebrows is the factor that BofA considers to be the third most likely threat to financial stability and growth, namely “civil unrest.”

Zero Hedge explains exactly what Bank of America is referring to with its warning of “civil unrest”:

“So what’s going on here, is Wall Street really starting to worry about what we first said back in 2010 – much to Time Magazine’s mockery – that the Fed’s disastrous policies would eventually push US society to armed conflict and/or to civil war. While it may be easy to dismiss such fears as hyperbolic, consider what otherwise level-headed Bloomberg macro commentator (and former Lehman trader) Mark Cudmore wrote overnight in his latest lament that markets are so broken, that in the end it will all “end in tears”, either in the form of collapse of fiat currency or through “political revolution”, read armed conflict.”

“Which brings us back to square one. Because in a world where a handful of traders are the most bullish they have been in 20 years while the living standards of tens of millions of Americans are absolutely dismal with the economy on the verge of yet another depression-causing shutdown, the flashbacks to the days just before the French Revolution are all too real.”

Target Reopens Looted Store in Minneapolis With Goal of Being Less “Racist”

But adds shutters in case it gets looted again.

Target has re-opened its looted Minneapolis store that was completely ransacked during the George Floyd riots over 5 months ago with the goal of catering more to black shoppers and being less “racist.”

Yes, really.

According to a Bloomberg report, there is now a new “mural” at the entrance of the store and it has been completely remodeled by a contracting company owned by a Somali-American woman in order to make it more welcoming for black people.

The store will also stock more products made by black-owned brands.

In August, Target’s new “racial justice committee” outlined the goal of responding to its stores being looted (predominantly by black criminals), by tackling its reputation of appealing primarily to white shoppers.

One of those committee members, Stephanie Creary, assistant professor of management at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, said Target’s mission was to “reduce the impact of racism that is created from its operations.”

Chief external engagement officer Laysha Ward said the new ethos would be implemented across the country in the construction of new Target stores and the remodeling of existing ones.

“We’re really thinking about this relevant experience that is overtly Black and reflecting overtly Black needs and culture,” said Ward.

According to the report, white residents in the local area previously avoided using the store, preferring instead to drive to another branch further away, and referred to it as “Tar-ghetto.”

Crucially, the store has also added shutters in case of “emergencies,” meaning in case the local diverse community decides to loot it again.
