Riots have quantified the the cost of social injustice. Now everyone can estimated the cost and benefits of social and law enforcement reform. Businesses, who essentially run the country, now know that not supporting reform will impact their balance sheet.

They are collateral damage as you mentioned.

They can also drive change with their votes.

Terrible take, OP. Riots have destroyed black small businesses, killed additional black men, and caused greater division between Americans.

Do the black business owners who agree with the message of black lives matter also need to account for this on their balance sheet? Rioters are destroying their own neighborhoods and acting like fools.


Some slaves were better off before the abolishment of slavery. Some lost their lives involuntarily. Would use that logic to say we shouldn’t have eliminated it?

So mob rule then


Thanks OP. While I think you may be a little off base with bringing in global economic sanctions compared to a national human rights crisis. I understand the gist of what you are saying. I can’t speak to the details of the sanctions but there could be innocent people hurt.

And yes I agree let’s solve the injustices, but keep in mind many individuals make up the society. This is human civil rights issue I don’t see why collectively business and small business have to be destroyed. I have not seen a single quality answer. If It’s the collective societies issue than why are you glossing over this group of people - they are a part of society and have rights too.

And that’s, ladies and gentlemen, how anarchy is born


OP, I agree with you. As a society, we definitely pay a collective price to keep anarchy at bay. I think you’re focusing on one of the two primary payment methods, the financial/pocketbook costs. Like, on our soil for infrastructure (including a courts system) but also stuff like Naval shipbuilding budgets. Open shipping lanes is actually in the USN’s mandate.

The other main payment method is individual freedoms. We make a collective choice there too, and occasionally that balance should be revisited as well.

I know this is very superficial and lots of complexities around ability to be free while living paycheck to paycheck. Just wanted to highlight that there are two ways in which we pay this piper.

The only thing business will take away from this is to avoid setting up business in areas with lots of minorities. This will trigger lower economic activity in those areas which will reduce jobs and opportunities for local residents and contribute to greater unrest and poverty. This is exactly what happened in Ferguson after the riots.


Are you trying to start a violent revolution and overthrow the government? We’re not talking about a coup d’etat here; we’re trying to reform the behavior of police in what are largely big cities with democratic leaders and a population that by and large skews liberal. There are many people sympathetic to the protest and all looting and rioting is doing is alienating the supporters who also believe that violent means should not be condoned.

Looters and rioters are just shooting them selves in the foot. Riots are how Nixon won the election over Humphrey. Can you imagine how different this country would look like if the author of the Civil Rights Act was president instead of a criminal?




Sure, I just think anyone that justifies looting by saying insurance is stupid.


Is this a threat? Because it sounds like a threat


You don’t think the society you knew and grew up with is under threat?


I don’t think Macy’s filing an insurance claim is going to change the world. That’s up to all of us. This effort would have to be sustained long term. Basically refusing a return to normal until a reform plan is put into action. Sustained loss of revenue is what businesses understand.

Exactly. Sustained loss of revenue! A threat of recurring losses! Impacts to supply chains! Forced closures (temporary and permanent).

How is your company dealing with Covid.

Our company is making Vaxxed people come into the office but non vaccinated are required to wfh.… I support choice of vaccination or not and this isn’t a post trying to lean to any side.

But I’m more confused as this feels like punishment for getting the vaccine while those who chose not too are allowed to wfh during the holiday season. Our company is required all vaccinated people to come in 3x a week but those who
