America continues to play the Chinese philosophy of Yin-Yang with African Americans, the love-hate game continues in the United States. This country loves African American music, food, clothes, culture, and athletic skills but America still wants to fight Black people for civil rights, equal pay, and basic respect. The Me Too Movement has more power then Black Lives Matter Movement and there is a reason for that.
The principle of all things exists as inseparable and contradictory opposites. Yin and Yang describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. This is the current mindset of the United States of America, today.
This well-known credit card company Capital One wants Black people to use their credit cards in their pockets. They employ less than 12% of African Americans the Black input or Black officers in their company had little or no influence on this decision. They (Capitol One) want the financial benefits, the financial profits, but do not want to give Blacks the rewards.
The CEO-Chief Executive Officer made the decision to create these three advertisements because they (Capital One) did not have to pay as much radio and television royalties for the use of these records. So we as African Americans have the responsibility not to use their credit card.
This is another call for African Americans to take economic action. AGAIN!!!
Wal-Mart, Amazon, and Capital One Credit Card Company saw fit to use recently passed African American singers in their Holiday commercials…
The question needs to be asked why this card company waited until these superstars died to use their music in their holiday commercials. The next question is this company honoring or profiting from these commercials.
Last question, American females (ME TOO MOVEMENT) can shut down all of the radio stations across this nation from playing the Christmas tune “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” why can’t African American likewise shut down this company that uses the following songs.
Michael Jackson- Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough- Capital One
Prince- Let’s Go Crazy- Capital One,
and Whitney Houston- I Wanna Dance With Somebody- Capital One
The last two songs are just irritating and arrogance trying to get Black shoppers to use their services. These two songs are for dancing not selling products. Question what happens on December 26th?
The Jacksons – Can You Feel It- Amazon
Rick James- Give It To Me Baby- Wal-Mart
All of these artists had issues with the rights to their records and all have passed away with this issue still in limbo. They died within the last 15 years under questionable circumstances.
My Fellow Americans please put away that Capital One Card this Christmas and write to them and tell them why you are not using the card.
