    Corporations are not moral or immoral. The management can be good or bad, moral or immoral but mostly they just virtue signal.

    Ad touting black businesses are made to appeal to young liberals. Otherwise they would be promoting businesses with real entrepreneurs, not models.

    Why is that necessary? Also, again, flip the narrative. Imagine if there were "white pride" newsletters being sent out from Godddy.

    Do you not understand how you're literally proving my point? Your post above makes you sound as if you truly believe that blacks are somehow innately "incapable" of building businesses when compared to other races. And the crime comment? Do you not understand how overtly racist all of that sounds? Sorry, but I don't think you're grasping any of this.

    Hi

    basically, your point, is pointing in the wrong direction.

    i think you are wanting to see it as being racist and are gripping hard on that perspective.

    and as is, it's already too political, so i'm out, before i have to go aqua boogie

    imo...

    Rover, support Black businesses one weekend out of the month if you can. In my town we have a night fleamarket, but if you make the effort we can go a long way to building Black wealth in this country.

    So this is my challenge to you - don't get angry - find some black owned businesses near you, and give them support over a weekend. Give it a shot and see if it feels racist. Thanks.

    Just an experiment.

    Black owned business promotion happens just about everywhere not just GoDaddy. Just Google Black owned business as a category I order from DoorDash a lot and they have a section that says black owned businesses.



    Why are there so few Black businesses?


    It's true that the numbers should be higher. African Americans make up more than 13% of the U.S. population, but only own 7% of the businesses there. The answer to this question will vary depending on whom you ask, but most agree that racism, discrimination and predatory lending are all factors because many aspiring Black business owners have been unfairly turned down by banks when applying for small business loans.

    Another factor is that there is a lack of economic and business resources in African American communities. This leads to a lack of education on how to properly start and manage a successful business.

    Simple solution … Don’t give Godaddy your money … don’t give Woke Fucks money and they will eventually collapse …

    @Paul-nicks

    Question A.) Will you be injecting the skin colors of all other races into your subject lines of your mass emails?

    Question B.) If the answer is "no" to question A, then how does that define "equality" and "inclusiveness" that your company claims to promote?

    These are two simple questions that I'd like to have your perspectives on.

    A) I have nothing to do with our marketing dept, so I can't speak to whatever campaigns they may choose to run.
    B) I don't believe marketing is a zero-sum effort, just because we try to lift up or promote one demographic in an email blast doesn't mean we are denigrating all others

    My best guess is that our analytics team found that black entrepreneurs (or maybe female+black, or female+black+young) was growing quickly and would respond positively to that email, thus endearing themselves more to the brand. Every brand wants their customer to feel like they are seen/heard and their needs are met. When you blast everyone with the exact same message then you run into the issue of ppl assuming you (the customer) are "just a number". People generally respond positively to personalization.

    @Paul Nicks … I have been around in this industry a few minutes .. I have talked Bob Parsons on few occasions by phone . .. met him once .. Bob is a great guy and I hated to see him sell Godaddy ..Godaddy should leave any and all political .. racial .. gender … out of their business model .. In my Opinion…. Webmasters .. domainers have a very broad spectrum of different races .. religions .. everything for that matter .. it’s a very broad spectrum of people from all over the world .. I can’t speak for others .. but when I am using hosting .. purchasing domain services from a service … the very last thing I want is that service promoting racial .. gender .. religion .. if it doesn’t have to with the services offered .. I don’t want see or feel that shit .. period …
