8 in 10 Americans Think Corporate Anti-Racism Statements Are Bullshit


Efforts by corporations to kowtow to the woke crowd may avail little because few Americans see sincerity in the anti-racism messages pouring out of PR departments amid Black Lives Matter protests, a poll has revealed.

Only 19 percent of Americans believe genuine concern over the treatment of black people in the US was a major contributing factor behind companies speaking out about race, according to a Pew Research Center poll released on Wednesday. Just 14 percent of Republicans and 22 percent of Democrats considered the motivations to be genuine.

There were significant variations by the race of respondents – for instance, 30 percent of blacks thought companies were acting on genuine concern, versus 14 percent of whites – but all groups largely found the statements to be motivated by outside pressure. Some 69 percent of those polled cited outside pressure as the key motivating factor, including 75 percent of Republicans and 65 percent of Democrats.
