(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) Black American leaders called on “woke corporations,” including Papa John’s and Coca-Cola, to stop “blindly” supporting Black Lives Matter and similar groups, which have plundered the nation based on lies, Just the News reported.
Concerned Communities for America asked Papa John’s CEO Robert Lynch and Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey to sign a pledge “to signal support of the women and men who serve their communities as police officers,” according to the Tennessee Star.
“This pledge is in response to Papa Johns’ and Coca-Cola’s blind support, vocally and/or financially, of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation and its affiliates,” the group wrote in a press release.
The group’s leaders, including Executive Director DaQuawn Bruce and pastor Marc Little, spoke at a press conference on April 20 in Atlanta.
CCA plans to hold another press conference on April 21 in New York City. In that press conference, Bruce and Little will ask Comcast/NBC and Peloton to sign the same pledge showing support for America’s police officers.
Little blamed the BLM movement for an increase in violence against police officers.
“What I am exposing is the Four Ds: Defund, Demean, and cause our police to Die, Doing their job protecting and serving all of us,” he said.
The woke corporations funnel money into BLM’s coffers, but it never reaches black Americans in need.
Little said companies like Papa John’s and Coca-Cola are “helping BLM leaders amass a reported treasure trove of hate mongering, blood money totaling 100 million dollars.”
Bruce said the BLM movement has hijacked the civil rights movement for its own profit.
“Since the rise of the Civil Rights movement under the unifying leadership of Rev. Martin Luther King, there has been an attempt to exploit his movement’s effort to improve the lives and treatment of Black and Brown Americans,” he said.
