Former Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime comments on the Black Lives Matter Movement
On the latest episode of podcast 'Talking Games with Reggie and Harold", Reggie and Harold introduce the episode with a brief prelude, acknowledging the current events ongoing in the United States.
The prelude notes that the episode itself was recorded before the murder of George Floyd and the subsequent protests and riots that we are dealing with today.
In the clip, Reggie and Harold voice their support for the freedom of press and the first amendment right to protest, while condemning the damage and destruction of the riots.

In the past, Reggie has previously said that Nintendo stays out of politics, but it looks like personally he is ready to fight the good fight.
Nintendo has yet to comment on the ongoing issues in the country.
In these trying times, we all have a responsibility to support and uplift each other, and it seems like Reggie understands that.
What do you think of his comments? What about Nintendo's silence?
