Why *Not* to Shop at Amazon

August 31, 2007

Being a good corporate citizen is something I look for and admire in a business. Amazon does not fall into that category.

Several months ago, I learned that Amazon sells magazines and other publications related to cockfighting. I participated in a letter writing campaign through the Humane Society asking Amazon to stop selling these inhumane publications that support illegal activity. I received a response about free speech. Hey, I’m all for supporting freedom of speech, but supporting cruel and illegal activities? Come on! Don’t hide behind the first amendment to protect your profits.

Any person or corporation who promotes inhuman activities doesn’t deserve my business.
