Mark Cuban Wants Others to Donate Locally Rather Than Georgia Runoffs: ‘Put Americans In Need Above Politics’

by Will Shepard

Mark Cuban takes to Twitter to express his hope that during this time people donate to food banks. Outspoken on social and political issues is the norm for Cuban. Once again, looking to put others above himself, he communicates this desire to those in Georgia.

Cuban is as generous as anyone. And Cuban reminds Georgians that no matter what is happening in politics, to donate to help those in need.

Moreover, Cuban urges those, who can give, give their aid to food banks or shelters. Those shelters will help provide comfort for those who cannot provide for themselves. All in all, these organizations allow people in need, much-needed security, especially in colder months.

Cuban says:

“For those considering donating to Reps or Dems in the Georgia Senate run-offs, can you please re-consider and donate that money to your local foodbank and organizations that can help those without food or shelter? Lets put Americans in need above Politics.”

Surely with only the best intentions at heart, Cuban hopes that the American people will help others. Truthfully an impactful statement from Cuban on an important subject.

Cuban Backlash

However, the immediate response to Cuban and his tweet, centers around one word, “re-consider.”

For Georgians and Americans alike, the two Senate races in Georgia are immensely important. These two races decide which party will control the Senate for the next two years. By 2022, these Senators will impact almost every single decision that the President and House of Representatives make.

Accordingly, singer and all-around celebrity, John Legend chimes in with his thoughts on the matter.

Legend says that he understands that in a chaotic year, politics has dragged on too long. But, he doesn’t understand why this has to be something done over politics.

Consequently, Legend expounds on this subject in his tweet. “The bottom line is that the Senate flipping would be far more impactful than a food bank donation.”

Equally outspoken on social and political issues, John Legend raises another point. “We need massive stimulus and aid to individuals. Government needs to do this.”

Although he adds that charity doesn’t do enough. However, to appease both crowds, perhaps there is a middle ground. Why not, if able, donate to both causes: humanitarian and political?
