Sony Music Group Has Setup a $100M Fund to Combat Racial Inequality and Discriminations
Music Publishing Corporation, Sony has launched a whopping $100m Fund to support the movement for eradication of racism in America and to organizations fighting racial discrimination elsewhere in the world.
“Racial injustice is a global issue that affects our artists, songwriters, our people and of course society at large. We stand against discrimination everywhere and we will take action accordingly with our community fully involved in effectively using these funds.”ROB STRINGER, SONY MUSIC GROUP – CEO
The Sony Group vow to continue donation to organizations in the US and elsewhere in the world who their main aim is to fight racial inequality. This follows earlier move by other music giant corporations such as Warner Music, Universal Music Group who pledge their support for the #BlackLivesMatter movement and other organizations fighting racism in America.
All of these moves by these giant corporations were sparked by the extensive nationwide protest that had spilled over to nearly every country in the world after the brutal and senseless killing of yet another Black American (George Floyd) by white policemen.
While some hailed the moves, others would not be satisfied citing that its almost too little too late and effort due to the fact that the open and systematic racism in the American society has being striving for too long.
