(FamilyRetirementClub.com)- It is not officially controversial to say that all lives matter. Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, chose to attack one of his customers in an email for saying “all lives matter” in an attempt to bully others into toeing the Black Lives Matter line. The controversial billionaire, who regularly champions left-wing causes, was widely condemned for his bullying when he uploaded a screenshot of the email to his Instagram account.
Just think about that. Not only did a billionaire CEO scold a customer for saying all lives matter, but he also uploaded that email to Instagram to publicly humiliate and shame the customer (and anyone who agreed with them!).
The Instagram post shows that a customer told Bezos, “ALL LIVES MATTER!” and “If it wasn’t for all these lives providing their service to you and your company, where would Amazon be today?”
Bezos, who at least blurred out the surname of the customer, scolder her in return.
“No, Macy, I have to disagree with you,” he said. “’Black Lives Matter’ doesn’t mean other lives don’t matter. Black lives matter speaks to racism that Black people face in our law enforcement and justice system. I have a 20-year-old son, and I simply don’t worry that he might be choked to death while being detained one day. It’s not something I worry about. Black parents can’t say the same.”
Bezos is wrong. While some parents may worry about their child being killed by the police, statistics show that they are more likely to be killed by members of their own community or in a random attack or mugging. Last year, police officers killed nine unarmed black men, and in almost all of those instances, there were aggravating factors that made the deaths almost unavoidable. In the handful of cases where the cop was wrong, they were prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

“None of this is intended to dismiss or minimize the very real worries you or anyone else might have ibn their own life,” he added, “but I want you to know I support this that we see happening all around us, and my stance won’t change.”
The Instagram post came a day after an Amazon warehouse was burned to the ground by rioters.
Hey, Jeff, no matter what you say they’ll still target you!
