Video: Chick-fil-A CEO: Whites Should Shine Shoes of Black People Because … Racism

on

I have to confess, my fat ass loves the food at Chick-Fil-A … too much for my own good.

The number 2 is, IMHO, the best sandwich you can get … without getting out of your car to order, pay for and consume.

I always respected the fact that Chick-Fil-A closed on Sundays due to the religious ideals of it’s founders.  Leaving all that money on the table because of your faith in God is a powerful message, one which I respect.

I also respect when people try to bridge the gap between, well, any two groups which seem to be at odds with one another.

That being said, what I do not appreciate are stunts that are, in my view, patronizing and a shameless display of virtue signaling bordering on cuck/simpish behavior.

How the CEO of Chick-Fil-A thought it would be a good idea to shine this man’s shoes because of the color of his skin, is beyond me.

This does not look like some honest gesture or effort to bridge the divide, it looks like a transparent virtue signaling stunt that came off as more patronizing than anything in my view.

What do you think?

Transcript via MRC:

“I invite folks just to put some words to action here and if we need to find somebody that needs to have their shoes shined, we need to just go right on over and shine their shoes.”

“Whether they got tennis shoes on or not — maybe they got sandals on — it really doesn’t matter. But, there’s a time in which we need to have some personal action here. Maybe we need to give them a hug, too.

“I bought about 1,500 of these [brushes] and I gave them to all our Chick-Fil-A operators and staff a number of years ago.”

“So, any expressions of a contrite heart, of a sense of humility, a sense of shame, a sense of embarrassment begat with an apologetic heart — I think that’s what our world needs to hear today.”

Here is the complete video:

I don’t even know what to say.  How does this help further equality?

To me this looks like some Democrat level pandering, little different then their staged kneeling moment in the Capital Building.

How about we just start treating one another with respect and decency and stop focussing on what color one another’s skin is?

Whatever happened to EQUALITY?  Shake the man’s hand, look him in the eye … do it off camera, don’t make a show of it.  If we all just acted the way we wanted society to function all this crap would be over already.  FFS, how hard can this be?

How about we let every black crimnal out of jail and make sure we never prosecute any of them again so that they know they can get away with murder because of misplaced self-enforced white guilt. Then as a reward, we give them gobs and gobs of tax payer money. How crazy has racism in this country have to get until you idiots stop making everything about the color of ones skin?

I guess he believes all that crap about black people and chicken. I think we should all boycott them but this is not the time for more stupidity. Too many people already out of work thanks to the virus and Joe Biden.

I'M TIRED OF THESE BLACK PEOPLE THAT FEEL THAT WE OWE THEM ANYTHING! HOW ABOUT THE "WHITE SLAVES"? THIS LASTED LONGER THAN THE BLACK SLAVES. REPARATIONS MY ASS! GET TO WORK YOU MISERABLE BLACK ANTI-AMERICANS.

This is an old story but one worth repeating. Dan Cathy stabbed conservatives in the back who supported him for his beliefs about marriage by pandering to people because they are members of a minority. NO! In my opinion this is insulting to Jesus who washed the feet of his Disciples. I don't need to shine anybody's shoes unless that is my chosen job.

A National Boycott of Chick Fil A is in order. I would urge consumers to find another place to eat. This Vet isn't shining anyone's shoes.

Is the Chick-Fil-A exec/CEO a nut job or something? The right thing to do is treat others as you want to be treated, not as a symbol to impress them or others. Where has all this way of stupid/wrong thinking come from? People, it's time to get our heads on straight and respond accordingly. Stop listening to the weirdos!

You can shine my shoes anytime. I’m Native American your stores are on property the belong to us. We never owned slaves so why should I shine anyone’s shoes. 8th generation military who’s family has blood and treasure all over the world to protect your right to do business. Take note other minorities do you think shining shoes is your way to freedom. Maybe you should shine your own ! I don’t get on my knees for anyone but Jesus Christ. I have fought almost died for this country and will never listen to anyone who thinks I should degrade myself for there cooperate policy’s. How many slaves did your family own? Never again will I visit your stores or should any one else. Especially veterans

Sigh! When will this crap stop? I just lost my respect for Chick-Fil-A management. I thought the company was an upstanding Christian entity in the universe. This pandering to the blacks just makes me sick. I'm tired of it as they probably are. Why can't we all just get along without having to show how woke we are.

I think the Chick-fil-A thing was ridiculous. He’s reading more into the shining of shoes than what I think there was. It was a job. The only shoe shiner I saw when I was in Oakland, California was a white man shining shoes. While may be a lot of blacks did do that they were making money at it. It was a job the same as the white man I saw shining shoes. I can’t answer for the South, but Oakland, California is far from the South. So a black man never had his shoes shine by another black man? But I guess a white man had his shoes shined by another white man, or he shined anyone’s shoes he could that day to make money. Can we just move on, please!

The head of Chick-fil-A should be ashamed of himself for shinning a black Americans shoes. It did not show anything but his own stupidity. I thought Chick-fil-A was bigger than a action like this.

This asshole is a dyed in the wool sob. When blacks shined our shoes, they were paid. You are a sensationalist at best and a pandering fool at worst. I hope millions and millions will immediately boycott chic fil la and drive their success through the floor. This is not a statement about inequality, it’s an effort to appease complaints from blacks of how oppressed they’ve been. If you’re are black and you don’t see that this is another effort to demean black peoples and to disenfanchise the entire black race you’re been captivated once again of being less than white and deserve a limp effort to further oppress blacks.A less than genuine effort to Express genuine concern for the plight of ALL oppressed people is nothing but a false narrative. Black peoples are better than this.
