Yes, this is a company. Yes, it's something to do with advertising.


I will preface this by stating that I do not think that it's a bad thing for them to bring awareness to this situation. It is significant that Mut 21 coins it can't only be dismissed by looking away from it. With that said, I really do hold a certain amount of distrust towards multi-billion dollar multinational corporations paying lip service to significant social issues. They're in the best possible place to do more than just put out a press release or public announcement. Obviously, as a capitalist business they are under no duty to do so, and it rings hollow when they attempt to stand in solidarity with all the ordinary people. Now there are companies out there that do things and this is the time to highlight those attempts; to demonstrate they're more than just words.
Having said that police brutality is not exactly something that a company like EA throwing cash at the issue does much towards fixing. At best they place money towards the attorneys and groups that struggle to see justice after the truth or lobby to get laws changed that in the current government won't. It has systemic difficulties within authorities of not reporting their own and holding them liable rather staying silent and with the authorities unions that allow it all to occur or in a sense even promote it by the repercussions being a slap on the wrist followed by being hired in a different precinct showing them there's no consequences. Before even getting to laws and rulings like qualified immunity that shield abusive cops and allow them to misuse their power . The vast majority of that EA and most capitalist businesses are not able to perform so much about making it unfair to state they're in the best possible position to do much more.
Those at the best possible position to do more are the assumed good cops by no longer remaining quiet and allowing bad cops to eliminate their misuse of power or voting to get better direction for their unions that won't enable the behaviour. However, of course it is just words. Since following decades of corporations doing things for the wrong reason, people are very cynical. Even if all corporations stopped doing things wrong, it'll take a long, long time for this image of corporate America to reduce its tarnish. Part of what people might do is pick politicians who at least promise that they'll hold these corporations accountable. It probably wont happen by itself. This could be much easier if a person like that may run for office .
Because regardless of the sentiment, this is still 100 percent a business and marketing maneuver. If they truly wanted to do something positive, they can do it without advertising their products while doing this. Because it's not genuine. This is not any different than the coronavirus advertisements. They could have said nothing at all. That is good. Solidarity or else they realize a decent chunk of their audience is obsessed with something more significant than a damn videogame? Man. These remarks really emphasize the nihilistic nature of reddit users.
Yes, this is a company. Yes, it's something to do with advertising. But Jesus, can't we be happy that firms are stating something? Do you not understand how much of an impact this could make? In the buy mut coins madden 21 event the company ignored the situation, it might give every checked out thoughts the idea that what is happening is normal and routine.
