Reed Hastings is a harmful dickhead who has spent much of his time donating to charter school advocacy groups and attempting to gut public education. "Committing" to donate something at the height of a general corporate PR crisis doesn't change any of that.

A dickhead who does not donate 120 million bucks to black universities is way, way, way worse than one who does.

My god, he must have some huge,  asty skeletons in his closet. I guess giving huge sums of money to deserving organizations is less evil than the usual marketing strategy.

Just bring back Daredevil, you putz. And MST3K. I mean, if you have time.

You know, after reading about this guy for all of five minutes I'm trying to see why anyone would think he is a dick. I mean he does champion charter schools so if you don't like charter schools then that's that. But I see peace corps  volunteer, former math teacher, tons of support for anti-death penalty and criminal justice reform and tax the rich more kind of stuff. He fired an exec for using the n-word and encouraged employees to report sexual harassment. I doubt he's the second coming of jesus but he seems to be one of the more moral superstar ceo's. Final judgement - not a dick.

This.  He should have taken that $120 million and given it to public education, so another generation of inner-city kids can attend shiatty, unaccountable public schools, while other people use a mortgage to attend the school of their choice.

Is donating actual money really virtue signaling?

Oh it's much worse than that. Who do you think is telling us flawed human being how we should think?  That's right - other flawed human beings.

Except everyone on Fark. You guys are perfect.

Let's check in on all of this corporate giving in a few years. Let's see how much is actually given and where it ends up.
