On May 25, 2020 an African American man by the name of George Floyd died under the watch and under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer. Despite countless injustices over the years against African Americans, this was actually captured on video from multiple angles and during broad daylight. Regardless of whatever this man may have done, his life did not deserve to be taken in the streets over a matter concerning twenty dollars.
We here at Gourmet Popcorn Finder take an unwavering stance against unjust, inhumane and brutal treatment of all human beings regardless of race or creed. However it cannot be denied that African Americans have been targeted in their cars, in the street, and most recently in their own homes whilst they sleep. 2020 ironically is both a year and an indicator of perfect vision, as things are becoming evidently more clear that sweeping changes are needed in our laws, mindsets and how we treat one another. We here at Gourmet Popcorn Finder as a company are taking the following steps:
Black Owned Business Feature
Stores and companies listed in our directory can voluntarily identify themselves as Black-owned. All new and existing listings are eligible to add or modify their listing with this feature in mind. Those wanting to support a black-owned business will now have the ability to search for these businesses with just a click. Once businesses have added this designation to their popcorn shop listing, we will update this article with a link to all Black Owned Businesses on our platform.
We as a company are devastated by what has unfolded. Amidst this injustice is a pandemic with no end in sight, and an election year that seems to be overshadowed and undermined. “We the people” cannot allow ourselves to become distracted. Change is never an easy process, and many have been martyred in the name of it.
Gourmet Popcorn Finder stands in solidarity against injustice.
“Without struggle, there is no progress”
