Amazon.com Inc Chief Jeff Bezos used an Instagram post on Friday to share an emailed response to a customer and express his support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
“No, Macy, I have to disagree with you,” he wrote to the customer who had emailed him with a complaint about a banner featured on the Amazon.com website. “Black lives matter speaks to racism and the disproportionate risk that Black people face” in the “law and 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,” Bezos continued.” It’s not something I worry about. Black parents can’t say the same.”
