Sam’s Club is Walmart’s private wholesale club, and it boasts a massive customer base across the country. However, the company’s CEO recently made some controversial remarks about white men, and as a result, people are vowing to boycott the business.
Rosalind Brewer presides over one of the largest wholesale clubs in America, and apparently, she’s a raging liberal, according to Yahoo! Finance. She recently did an interview with CNN and revealed that to her, the color of one’s skin is more important than their contribution to the company, and her number one priority is ensuring her corporate team is diverse, rather than the most efficient it can be.
“It has to start with top leadership,” Brewer said. “My executive team is very diverse and I make that a priority. I demand it within my team.”
On top of ensuring that minorities get priority in the hiring process at Sam’s, she also said that she favors female employees and encourages Sam’s Club partners to do the same. The controversial remark she made is below, and you’ll see why people are so upset after you read it.
Just today we met with a supplier and the entire other side of the table was all Caucasian males. That was interesting. I decided not to talk about it directly with [the supplier’s] folks in the room because there were actually no female, like, levels down. So I’m going to place a call to him.
You catch that? She’s so upset that she was in a room full of white men that she’s actually going to call the company to talk to them about it. Because, you know, the color of people’s skin and their genitalia are more important than what they give to the company, in her eyes anyways.
After reading her incredibly racist and sexist comments, people across the country vowed to boycott the company, saying they refuse to support racism from anybody.
“As a white male I’m deeply offended by the remarks of your employee,” one person wrote on Sam’s Club’s Facebook page. “We will not be patronizing Sam’s Club until this is corrected.”
“Racism is alive and well in America,” another user wrote. “I will never spend a dime in a Sam’s club!”
Do you agree? I do. Imagine, for a second, if a white CEO was in a meeting with all black women from another company and said something like that. Go on, think about what would happen.
I’ll tell you, the liberal lynch mob would flood social media and demand they be fired. Meanwhile, groups of #BlackLivesMatter hired protesters would surround their home and demand hate crime charges be filed, and Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders along with Barack Obama would decry racism and sexism in America, all of which would lead to the person’s life being destroyed and their career ended.
Now, do you want to know what happened with Brewer after her racist comment? First off, Walmart is standing behind her obviously racist remarks.
“For years, we’ve asked our suppliers to prioritize the talent and diversity of their sales teams calling on our company,” Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said. “Roz was simply trying to reiterate that we believe diverse and inclusive teams make for a stronger business. That’s all there is to it and I support that important ideal.”
Secondly, her “diversity” comments are being applauded by the left, who openly advocate for the discrimination of white, Christian males. Meanwhile, the rest of us look on in disgust at the obvious double standard in our nation, and I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of it.
