As a human being everybody has an opinion about world issues. You shouldn’t be punished for your opinion or perspective on something like world issues. This is how change occurs through discussion.

Some people don’t say anything because they fear they may lose their job, loss of future opportunities. People should be able to speak out and their comments should not be attributed to the company they work for.

But that’s the unfortunate works we live in. Where’s the freedom of speech? The CEO of CPI security sent the following email below and it was construed as racist. So then many businesses made announcements that they were canceling security contracts with CPI Security.

People are reaching with this racism stuff going on. If you concluded racism from this one email, you’re reaching. Maybe after seeing the whole email thread racism can be concluded, but not from this one lil email. Racism is not liking people because they are that race and treating them different. The more broad racism is defined, the more people can accuse others of being racist in an effort to publicly call them out. Today we have white people calling white people racist to make themselves look good and the other guy look bad — not solely because they are truly racist.


“Please spend your time in a more productive way. A better use of time would be to focus on the black on black crime and senseless killing of our young men by other young men.”

I don’t see anything wrong with Gill’s statement. People should spend more time on black on black murder. Nobody wants to talk about this. Instead all the time and resources are being spent on police killings of black men. The majority of black men killed each year are by other black men. Businesses and politicians want to continue to push this racist narrative.

It is best to be your own boss so you don’t have to deal with this type of foolishness when you say something. Companies think they have the upper hand. There are more employees than companies. It should be the other way around. Everybody should work for themself instead of companies capitalizing on millions of human labor.
