This story is so absurd I actually wonder if Bezos doesn't secretly hate black people and liberals and is doing this to illustrate how fucking ridiculous the black worship has gotten. Even the most brainwashed shitlib can see how ridiculous it is for Bezos to give this money to some comfortably wealthy establishment black political operative/pundit, at a time when several millions of Americans are homeless and countless more have lost their livelyhood during covid. It's an optics nightmare from the shitlib point of view.

Even worse is if Jones accepts the money, as I'm sure he will. What better way to illustrate the pure corruption and propagandistic nature of modern "journalism" than having favored members of the media periodically gifted a huge fortune by some filthy rich oligarch who fought paying their own employees a living wage.

I find it hard to believe the shitlib establishment would be so out of touch as to see this as some warm fuzzy feel good story, but it's certainly possible. This is the perfect let them eat cake moment. Maybe Bezos really does secretly despise the system and could try to subversively tear it down while pretending to support it, but I'm gonna guess no.

That didn't stop Walmart, Target, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft etc from donating billions to the George Floyd protests last year, even as their own businesses were being burned down. They really are that crazy.

Edit: And it's not only exclusive to America that big business or governments would rather ignore the homeless problem in order to appease blacks.

Toronto, Canada is expected to pay $21 million just to remove the name of a street because they got complaints it's "racist".

I fucking hate these articles. It's always "Thanks for bending the knee, but it's still not good enough, more gibs".

I can't fucking stand it.

Ha, the timing of this thread is incredible. I was working on a separate one comparing all the times White people have donated to Black people. I'm sure to add this one to the list as well.

    It's why society should never be run by merchants.

    Seems like Bezos is trying to get rid of money really quickly. I wonder if this has something to do with taxes or his ex wife.

    What in the fuck? Either that guy is so rich that this is like $1 to him or as Tucker said, 🤔.

    I would much prefer them spend their money doing stuff like that

    What? Ego trips?
