    They keep getting bolder and bolder....

    I'm no marketer, but isn't it the goal to spend as little as possible on a demographic while still earning good results with the same demographic? .5% on the budget spent with 14% of sales going to black owned households sounds pretty good to me so why would GM want to spend more when the results likely won't improve by much?

    I hope they burn GM to the ground and they go out of business.

    Get woke, go broke.

    Do you mean the black owned media group or the white woman?

    At GM, with COVID-19 and the longer pandemic of systemic racism, we know we all need to move through the world in a new way. For us, this means aspiring to be the most inclusive company in the world. And our hope is that every company will do the same.

    Both are trying to get something through unscrupulous means, yes? One was pandering and one is doing a shakedown.

    I bet that you think that she does not change the lightbulbs in all of GMs factories, either. I am so tired of having to explain this shit to racist assholes.

    More corporations need to refuse to bow to BLM and other black groups making these demands.

    You need to review the last 3 years of GM ads and announcements, let them all burn

    Anybody who works in advertising long enough will encounter the minority-owned media shakedown. The bigger or more government the advertiser, the sooner and more often it will happen. Sometimes it's low key, like "we just want to make sure our audience is properly represented in your advertising investments," but often sounds more like "that's a nice company you have there, be a shame if it came out you were racist". And that's what's happening here.

    The thing is, just because the media entity is minority owned doesn't mean its audiences can't be reached in other ways that are usually already taking place. They're usually dog turd publishers with tiny audiences well below the radar of mass marketers, but they're there with their hand out.

    I'll never forget running the media investments for a significant state government entity that had mandates for the use of minority- and women-owned suppliers. I got a call from a guy who ran some 2-bit Black newspaper complaining about how they weren't on the buy. I said something like we could maybe fit him in using the mandate and he got all indignant, "I'm not looking for a handout". Yes. Yes you are, you shiny-suit mother****er, now take your 3 dollars and **** off.

    This. Good for her for not being willfully extorted by the woke crowd.

    It's great seeing the woke eat their own. The only way to fight these terrorists is by having a zero tolerance policy from the get go. These woke companies and organizations are going to learn real hard that tough times are a coming. Pissing off half the country can't be good anybody's pocketbook.

    It’s ironic the people who claim racism are more racist than the ones they’re accusing

    I added an extension to your post. ;) If the bowing continues, it will get much worse.

    Quite bold going after a female.

    I’m amazed.

    She should claim the allegation is sexist.

    It’s like a nationwide crybaby competition.
