The television and Internet provider Comcast will be donating up to $100 million in a “multiyear plan” aimed at combatting alleged “systemic racism” in America, according to The Hill.
The decision was announced by Comcast CEO Brian Roberts, who declared that the company will give up to $75 million in hard cash and another $25 million in media over the course of the next three years, in order to “fight injustice and inequality against any race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, or ability.”
Roberts also confirmed that he will be coordinating this effort with other major corporations and their executives, including the executive vice president of NBCUniversal, Craig Robinson.
Among other actions to be taken by Comcast, the company will begin “educating” its employees through such methods as “town halls, speaker series, and mandatory anti-racism and anti-bias training,” as well as “increasing connectivity among communities of color.”
Comcast and NBCUniversal are just two of many companies that have virtue-signaled in favor of the Black Lives Matter movement, which has generally consisted of putting out generic blanket statements about “equality” or “discrimination.” Most companies have failed to cite any evidence that such “systemic racism” even exists, and in fact most studies have debunked the idea on numerous occasions.
