Corporate Social Responsibility: The Elephant In The Room Finally Speaks Up.

Corporate Social Responsibility Has Begun and the Rippling Effect Is Affecting Every Aspect of American and Global Society for the Better in the Following Ways

Sports

  • FedEx, PepsiCo, Nike, and Bank of America put such pressure on the Washington Redskin’s football team that it has decided to drop the offensive and racist name “Redskins” as the official name of the team. This ends 87 years of insults and degradation and humiliation for the indigenous Native Americas who suffered the loss of their country, their heritage, their culture, their dignity, and had to be reminded of it every time the name “Redskins” was used in promoting a company that has made billions of dollars from a slur that will last a lifetime for so many people.
  • NASCAR has stepped up and removed the long-overdue symbol and stigma of slavery and bondage that divides Black and White citizens by banning the presence of the Confederate flag from its events. A long-standing tradition of flying the flag of the confederacy and conjuring up ghosts of the past has finally been put in the grave where it belongs.
  • The National Football League (NFL), finally sees the light and apologizes for the treatment it allowed Black American athletes to suffer for the simple act of exercising their constitutional right to peaceful protest against racial injustice by kneeling on one knee during the singing of the National Anthem. Corporate social responsibility sparked this change. It sends a message that peaceful protest is an American tradition and part of the fabric of our constitutional rights no matter who it pisses off or who disapproves.
  • The hiring practices of NFL teams have been radically changed to ensure and require that during the vetting process to hire team head coaches, general managers, and other executive positions, minorities, women, and particularly Black candidates will be interviewed and seriously considered for hire. The pressure of Corporate America helped provide the fuel to make this change.
