Gap Clothing Just Published an Ad About Closing America's Political Divide and People Aren't Happy

I saw the tweet. I personally disagree with their statement. I don't think it's a timing thing. Whether it was shared yesterday or two months from now, I generally think that companies that jump on certain political ideologies, like uniting Americans, like Black Lives Matters, as a way to market themselves (and god forbid, generate ad clicks) are advocating for the wrong reasons. They're driving, at the end of the day, towards capitalist ideals through social issues and, to me, that's emptiness. I'd rather for example they give all of their workers a paid day off to volunteer at the polls if they truly want to stand for change./endcynicalTeresa
