Today we are joining Black Out Tuesday, a moment of solidarity that unites the music industry against racism, injustice, and inequality experienced by the Black community. As its creators say, “It is a day to take a beat for an honest, reflective, and productive conversation about what actions we need to collectively take to support the Black community.” We’re pausing as a company and dedicating all our promotional space to encouraging that conversation. And we’re pausing as individuals, to take care of each other, and to plan for action.
If you want to take action now, we encourage you to donate to the NAACP. For over a hundred years, they’ve worked to secure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights in order to eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure the health and well-being of all persons.
We believe in the power of our platform to support and elevate our Black community – employees, creators, listeners, and partners. We are in this, not for today, but for history.“
One thought on “SoundCloud Supporting the Black Community and the NAACP”
Our African American race is so under rated and unrecognized. All you hear and see is white CEO’s like Donald Trump CEO of trump industry, Safea Catz CEO of Oracle Corp, Robert Allen Iger CEO of Walt Disney. The world know all about them. But what about Jide J. Zeitlin CEO of Tapestry Inc”, Kenneth C. Frazier CEO of Merck &Co, Marvin Ellison CEO of Lowe’s, Clarence Otis JR former CEO of Darden Restaurants. I can make this list go on and on. It’s about time someone steps of for our black community and speak up for what’s right. The killing of George Floyd is only the beginning. Stop killing off the blacks that help keep this country going and realize it’s not just about white supremacy their not the only ones. Barack Obama was the first black president, Guion Stewart Bluford Jr first and second of the African decent to go to space. Give us the credit we fucking deserve. I am a young African American male with 4 kids. I do not want them to grow up in this raciest society.
