So With The Race Card Played, Will GM Pay The Danegeld?

The Detroit Free Press: Full-page ad blasts GM CEO Mary Barra as racist

As one might expect, it's all about the money.

A groupd of Black publications including Ebony which is now only available digitally after going bankrupt, demanded that Mary Barra meet with them to give them more advertising dollars or they'd play the race card.   She didn;t immediately do so, so they did.

It's based on a false premise that presupposes that Blacks only use Black Media to see things, and eyeballs on ads and that the ads lead to the eyeballs going forth and buying the product is the only thing that matters in the world of advertising.   How may subscribers to the now free digital edition of Ebony exist and are there, and are there more effective ways to advertise to them and many others such as on TV and other media with larger subscriber bases and regular viewers?

Basically this is another shakedown for money and we will see if GM bends the knee.

Do they have the two Reverends, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, as advisors? Because they are two "ministers" who know all about shakedowns.

Pigpen51: Not yet, but they sure are copying their techniques.

Old NFO: Yep, I expect GM to concede and pay them off in no time flat.

Hey Aaron;

Of course, they have learned from the masters and in this day and age of BLM/antifa, GM will pay the Danegeld because the "Woke" control the outrage machine.
