This is a very recent development. I as a shareholder have some huge alarms going off in my head about PYPL joining team ADL to somehow identify “hate” groups and “extremeism” somehow deny them service. When everyone was on board with tolerating all other viewpoints, lifestyles, etc., it feels like the tide has turned and intolerance of anything not progressive is becoming the new norm. If I didn’t already own PYPL stock, this development would surely influence my decision to “wait and see” how things progress. However, I can’t see any benefit from a business perspective how this will ultimately benefit PYPL or their stockholders. I’ve done some research on ADL and find their rhetoric “extreme” and skewed. Their entry into educating children about race interaction and history, maybe it’s just me but I find it problematic.
