Volkswagen could end up in hot water over its 'Voltswagen' marketing stunt

“This is not the sort of thing that a responsible global company should be doing,” says Charles Whitehead, #CornellLawSchool professor, via CNN Business.

Volkswagen of America says its "Voltswagen" name change was merely a joke "in the spirit of April Fools' Day" to promote a new electric car. But even if it was meant as a lighthearted marketing gag, the move could land the carmaker in some serious trouble.

Socratic Dialectical Inquiry – Is Megan Brown’s appointment as the first Black Editor-in-Chief of the Michigan Law Review Good News or Affirmative Action Propaganda cynically used to obscure existential IDEOLOGICAL RACISM rampant throughout all institutions in America…including the Academy? You decide! Here is my response sent to about 400 people including to about 200 University of Michigan Departments, Faculty, and Student organizations including to Ms. Megan Brown (via the Michigan Law Review page) . . .
ARE CORPORATIONS PEOPLE? If Black People were granted Citizenship, Humanity & Equality which is "Personhood" under the 14th Amendment (on 9 July 1868) eventhough God - under NATURAL LAW - granted U.S. "Personhood" at BIRTH!), then why is the Democrat Party, the Marxist-Darwinist-Eugenics Academy and the Political Left so ANGRY that Personhood was granted to Corporations which are created by and composed of... (wait for it....) P-E-O-P-L-E!?? - Including Black People who create Businesses and Corporations all the time. ANSWER? Because to the Democrat Party and the Left the STATE is god and the omnipotent Leviathan State can countenance no competition... especially from Woke Black People (like me and you who are my Facebook Friends) nor from Businesses and Corporations Unleashed, Unshackled, FREE from Taxation without Representation, Crony Capitalism & Socialism SLAVERY. FREE to use their God-given Talent to create a Businees, a Corporation, yes even an Economy based on Dynamism, Creativity and Laissez Faire (Free Market) C-A-P-I-T-A-L-I-S-M! Thanks to my colleague Brian, Editor of the Iconoclastic news site, WhatDoesItMean.com who asked me to write on this largely ignored, misunderstood, very IMPORTANT subject. Here is Part I of my Essay -- "Democrat Party Racism, Corporate Personhood, and the Right to Bear Arms Against Government Democide—Part I" Ellis Washington | September 7, 2019 http://www.elliswashingtonreport.com/2019/09/07/democrat-party-racism-corporate-personhood-and-the-right-to-bear-arms-against-government-democide-part-i/
