    So, earlier today got an email from Fender - if you got it too, then you know what I'm alluding to - if not, no doubt you can look it up elsewhere.... simple as that.

    Personally, and hang any consequences... I say, well said Fender and great to see a big American Corp. coming out with that.

    It's for them to know and you to find out.

    I got it too .... I agree that it's "great to see a big American Corp. coming out with that" but on the other hand I'm sad that in 2020 it needs to be said.

    Had to look it up. Im assuming it’s the same thing they posted on Twitter. Good for them saying it. It’s pretty sad we can’t have a civil discussion about it here.

    It's certainly unusual for the CEO of a major company to issue such a statement.

    It could easily lead there.

    Wow!
    I just hope the statement is genuine and not the result of some focus group outcome.
    Apologies for the cynicism but it is automatically activated with corporation statements.

    Edit: Just to add, there was a similar statement from my UK-based employer today.

    it sure as hell shouldn`t be. the CEO of every company should speak out against racism
