Just in the course of two years, they haven't kept up with this change. This tidal wave in the way that consumers are willing to speak up and and be heard had to something that happened I. Think just a couple of weeks ago. With was a pay. Pal Who is taking KKK? Payments Yeah, I was researching for a talk giving touring best and I went to look up a fresh example of hate group using payment processors. All I did was typing KKK in I don't know something else I. Don't know. And I ended up on KKK website. I saw that they were soliciting donations using paypal. And I started out at the company and.
