The only reason hes donating 1M is because he almost ruined his career buy doing something so utterly stupid. So now he has to spend extra time and money to fix the issue he just caused.

He knew he would lose endorsements the second he decided to protest

Hint: BLM is a movement, not an organization
Hint: http://blacklivesmatter.com/getinvolved/
Contact a local chapter, make a donation, make a purchase, find resources and actions.
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

That is true except this one is an organization. Sometimes it is better just to accept you are in a hole and not dig it any deeper.  :)
This is the Official #BlackLivesMatter Organization founded by Patrisse Cullors, Opal Tometi, and Alicia Garza.

A movement started and afterwards one group of the many BLM groups conveniently called themselves BLM. That doesn't make them BLM. Next we'll hear that that there's an organization called Anonymous.

You need to give it a break before you can't see out of the hole.

You are limiting BLM to an org when they're much bigger than that.
If I said: Kaep will donate to 1 million to flag lovers.
That means he will donate to the official Flag Lovers® organization?

No that is not what I am doing and I understand why you are trying to pivot. I am pointing out that you can donate to BLM organizations.

It is your hole and your shovel so dig it as deep as you want. One thing to remember is it is Friday so no matter what I will have the last word on this.  :)

Was there a real threat to his endorsement contracts?
  For the record I'm not a fan of using endorsements (money) as a means to censor anyone even a fool like him. Unless the company felt that by alienating fans his endorsement was worth less in which case its no intended to censor but its a financial decision.

Fridays are all your fault I just realized. You are fully willing to fight an argument because you always get the last say in the matter on friday.
I'm not who you think I am.

Why not? He has a right to do/say whatever he wants but the company and its owner/board doesn't?

They do have the right to do what they please. I still am not a fan. Its bullying someone who has a diffrent opinion as opposed to engaging in discourse.

Exactly. So now why did you bring up that BLM is a movement and not an organization?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Because you clearly can't comprehend the difference.
Is BLM bad or good?
Doesn't it depend where exactly the money is going to?
