Are you currently treating a company such as the way the parent talks about a child? I really don't understand why it's our responsibility to baby businesses into getting empathy. Why is it that they need to"learn" to do good for humanity, why can't they simply do it? It's the same as white folks putting the duty on black folks to educate them not to be displaced when there's plenty of resources available on the way to do it. That said, I really do want to say that I apologize if any of my comment comes off as hostile or assaulting to you. I value this discussion a lot even when I think at the end of this we will still disagree. I hope I'm not creating a strawman from your argument once I say you see hardly any value in making a statement with nothing to back this up. Whereas when a large firm makes an official announcement I think that carries a fair bit of weight even if they don't do anything else.
I really don't think EA has any moral imperative to do anything at all in this circumstance, at least not publicly. They're not the reason for the issue, it would be simple and appropriate for them to stay quiet or skirt around this political issue, but they didn't. They had three choices: say nothing, say something, or say something and produce a dramatic gesture. Anything above the bare minimum is worth acknowledging in my eyes. I really don't find it as"babying" them to acknowledge that a company statement that I agree with. I believe we agree about more things than we disagree about. And while we're being antagonistic in these Reddit remarks because that's the prevailing tone of this place, I don't believe anything you have said has come across as disrespectful in any respect and that I hope you feel the same about the things I have said.
I am really thankful we managed to have the conversation we did and that we're seeing businesses place their money where their mouth is. The weekend was tough in my mental health and perspective on what is gont get achieved and probably reached in my comments, and that can still change as the times come and go. But today seeing protests get even larger and more peaceful than before and seeing companies really do shit, it gets me a little more hopeful. Thank you for a discussion that in the very least gave me a new outlook. I really don't need businesses saying something. In fact I'm fed up with companies saying stuff. Create your product. Make it great. Then shut up and let actual individuals speak. Nobody needs corporations to speak for them.
As it is silly bullshit meant to placate dumb white people who can easily be vulnerable to this sort of marketing tactic. This marketing tactic where businesses express commitments to resist injustice whilst avoiding specifics regarding what exactly is wrong, what should change, and exactly what they're going to do about it. Every single fucking firm does this and it's empty rhetoric. They don't give one fuck. This is precisely the same EA that censored the word"Kaepernick" out of a song in multiple games now in an effort to avoid offending their black participant base. People catching that and calling out it isn't nihilism. It's realism. What does stating something achieve? Why should anyone be pleased about E-fucking-A posing the delay of a game reveal as if it's somehow remotely related to the current unrest?
