If you thought you could avoid supporting Amazon’s big-money, corporate, establishment racism by patronizing Etsy instead, think again.
In case you haven’t noticed, it’s Black History Month. They tell us that every other month of the year is de-facto White History Month. Let’s see what Etsy is promoting these days:
This is what I got in an email:
I wonder how they’d react if I tried to sell a shirt that said “Hella White Hella Proud” on their site. Or if I tried to encourage people to “Buy White.” I would try it, but they would surely ban me from their services if I did so.
The Narrative tells us that there’s “systemic,” and “pervasive” anti-black racism in America. If this were truly the case, then we’d be seeing a backlash against corporations for exposing black-owned businesses. If there really was pervasive anti-black racism in our society, then we would be HARMING black-owned businesses by trying to promote them. It would be counterproductive.
The very fact that Corporate America goes out of its way to identify black-owned businesses, and nobody publicly objects, proves that The Narrative is wrong.
We can do our part by patronizing white-owned businesses. Not because we hate black people, but because we want to support the underdog, and take a stand against The Man – just as so many on Reddit recently did, rising up and striking a blow against the fat cats on Wall Street.
