The Netflix Original “Dear White People” trailer was published to Youtube on Feb 8, 2017. It was met with immediate backlash from commenters/customers of Netflix. Within one day, the trailer has received over 100,000+ down-votes.
Here is the trailer:
Identity politics is sad in general. It seems as if “white people” bashing has become normalized.
I would like to point your attention to someone who may be invested in causing chaos in the political/streaming video realm to push an agenda.
Why Has Netflix’s Stock Price Risen by 21% in the Last Month?
George Soros bullish on Netflix
On November 24, 2015, TheStreet reported that billionaire investor George Soros’s investment company, Soros Fund Management, owned 318,000 shares worth $32.8 million in Netflix (NFLX). This indicates bullishness regarding the stock on the part of Soros.
TheStreet report also mentioned that other investment companies such as Viking Global and Renaissance Technologies had obtained stakes in Netflix as well.
The stock price of Netflix has risen by ~20% since November 16, 2015, when news of Soros’s investment first broke. It has risen by 21% in the last month. Last month, Netflix announced its 3Q15 earnings.
George Soros is known to use his wealth to push different initiatives on a global scale. Recently, he helped fund the chaos at UC Berkeley.
According to its most recent 990 tax form, Alliance for Global Justice (AfGJ) received $2.2 million in funding for the fiscal year ending in March 2016.
One of the group’s biggest donors is the Tides Foundation, a non-profit funded by billionaire progressive philanthropist George Soros. Tides gave AfGJ $50,000.
This Netflix move will probably not end well. People have already started cancelling their subscriptions.
