Multinational companies can’t be woke in the US and silent in China anymore

Having different value systems for different markets is trickier in a world where consumers can easily track what companies are saying to different audiences.

Will 2020 Go Down as The Longest Year?

I read a post on Twitter recently that wondered if, years from now, scholars will be asked: Which quarter of 2020 do you specialize in? “We’ve lived through three major events that would be the defining story of any normal decade, and we’re only six months into the first year of the 2020s,” wrote the […]

Dear Jews: The Summer of 2020 Is Not About Us

An extraordinary moment has arisen in America that taps into a deep history of racism that predates the birth of our country. But instead of allowing blacks their moment, I’m seeing an outpouring of hysterics from some in the Jewish community about “anti-Semitism rearing its ugly head again!” A small fraction of the countless businesses […]

Comparing US race issues to “Black Mirror” trivializes a real crisis

The state of unrest in the US is being compared to the Netflix series all over social media. But for many Americans, that dystopia has been their reality for decades.

TikTok’s new CEO faces his first challenge—navigating America’s police brutality protests

An apology for a glitch that made it appear #blacklivesmatter videos weren’t getting views may generate some goodwill, but the real challenges for Mayer lie ahead.

A Prayer for America on May 30, 2020

Can We Keep the Focus on George Floyd’s Killer?

The death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin, who dug his knee into Floyd’s neck, feels all too familiar.
