Florida is using the law to try to force Disney to stop criticizing the state ‘s homophobic laws

Florida's culture war against anything non-white male like is taking a new direction today. According to reports, government officials in the state have enacted a new law set to take flight in 2023 that is raising eyebrows. Back in 1967, the state permitted the company to run its theme park in the state as a self-governed entity. The state has now introduced legislation for next year that would reverse that self-governing status simply because Disney does not agree with the state 's "Don't Say Gay Bill." It is reverse "cancel culture" at its finest when it benefits Republicans instead of working against them but is never "OK" when it just so happens to involve a Democrat. In the words of one legislator, Disney was "being reminded that it is a guest" in the state of Florida.

Zillow is shutting down its “Offers” business that nearly wrecked U.S neighborhoods in the name of “profits”

Zillow 's iBuy programme (not to be confusing because the name kind of doesn't make sense to begin with) is no more. The iBuy programme was just as it sounds --- they buy houses for one price; fix it up, sell it again for one price and then make a profit off if it in essence. The move was originally revealed and taken down by a realtor who exposed the company for the wreckage they've caused in several U.S neighborhoods. The company denies that the realtor had anything to do with their decision or their business practices though many people on sites like Trustpilot and beyond have all had claims surrounding the idea that the move was a scam. “We’ve determined the unpredictability in forecasting home prices far exceeds what we anticipated,” Zillow CEO Rich Barton said in the rele...

Coca-Cola: We need you to be less white

Coca-Cola is catching some flack this week over reports of a diversity training course that allegedly told employees to be less white. While the course wasn't formally shared by the company, whistleblowers posted parts of the course online and it immediately garnered backlash. “In the U.S. and other Western nations, white people are socialized to feel that they are inherently superior because they are white,” reads one of the slides, allegedly sent from an “internal whistleblower” and posted on Twitter . In statements to several outlets, Coke denied that the course was required although it has since been pulled from Linkedin and the like.

Aunt Jemima has been renamed to sound like a construction company in Kansas

That could be in part because it sounds like a construction company somewhere in the midwest. On Tuesday, the company formerly known as Aunt Jemima announced that it had renamed itself to the Pearl Milling Company in an effort to escape its horrific past. "This name is a nod to where our delicious products began before becoming a family-favorite breakfast staple," says parent company PepsiCo. "While the Aunt Jemima brand was updated over the years in a manner intended to remove racial stereotypes, it has not progressed enough to appropriately reflect the dignity, respect and warmth that we stand for today."

Very different stories are emerging out of the New York Times over the firing of one Lauren Wolfe

Columnist Lauren Wolfe who has long been a respected freelance journalist (among other things) found herself without a job leading into the inauguration of Joe Biden. Her cushy gig at the New York Times reportedly came to an end following a tweet by Wolfe that conservative quickly pounced on which apparently noted "media bias." The tweet merely noted that Wolfe "had chills" during the fact that Biden 's plane was touching down. Nothing more nothing less. The Times caved to what is being called a conservative hate crusade, mostly, led by critics who are mad that the media is not as right-wing as some would like it to be. Critics falsely claimed that Wolfe 's tweet was evidence of bias although it contained no mention of such. The Times, thus, maintains that Wolfe was not fired ...
