Companies say they support Black Lives Matter. What real action are they taking?

Corporations big and small are responding publicly to the protests taking over American cities. Amazon, Peloton, Gushers, the NFL, and other companies have proclaimed they stand with Black Lives Matter. They say they’re examining their own business practices and promise to do better. 

Is this posturing on the part of corporate America, or will companies substantially change the inequalities within their own staff and hiring practices?
