Digital Extremes is working to help stop the spread of racism while donating to causes that matter. In the wake of the murder of a Black man named George Floyd, the company has decided to join the cacophony of other businesses and individuals working toward equality.
The Warframe developer made it very clear that it had noble intentions as it announced plans to start making good on its official Twitter account.
"We are world makers - and we should do more to make both our virtual world and real world welcoming," read Digital Extremes' initial tweet. "While our job is to build an escape, we must also focus on paying attention to the world as justice is demanded for Black lives. We amplify that demand for just. And we must listen and learn how to do better."
We have made a $25,000 donation to @Blklivesmatter in support of our previous statement.— WARFRAME (@PlayWarframe) June 4, 2020
We are also in the process of updating our player systems to better protect against hate speech and racism, including zero-tolerance chat policies. https://t.co/Uv7WDBssdw
But the company didn't stop there, as it took to the official Warframe Twitter account to announce a monetary pledge.
"We have made a $25,000 donation to @Blklivesmatter in support of our previous statement," the tweet read."We are also in the process of updating our player systems to better protect against hate speech and racism, including zero-tolerance chat policies."
It looks like Warframe fans have a developer they can be proud of that is standing up against the injustices in the Black community all over the world.
Brittany Vincent posted a new article, Digital Extremes donates $25,000 to Black Lives Matter to combat racism
I agree that it's very important to do everything possible to make and keep our world welcoming. And racism is one of the most serious issues nowadays, so we have to support organizations that are fighting it. BLM is for sure one of the most well-known organizations, but to be honest, I have mixed feeling about it. There is a lot of info about BLM, its' members, and its leaders. I think I need to find more before making any assumptions, and I actually have such a chance. I need to write a paper about it, and I've already found a lot. I also came across this page https://edubirdie.com/examples/black-lives-matter/ which provides many different paper examples about BLM, and they are also informative. I've looked through a few and found there some exciting writing ideas. And now, I need to read the rest of the articles and news I've discovered, analyze everything and come up with something valuable and interesting.
