(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) Chick-fil-A which has been pretending to be a Christian fast-food restaurant chain recently showed its true colors and received a backlash for advancing several “diversity” initiates.
According to the Daily Wire, Chick-fil-A decided to gamble with its fate during the time of massive boycotts of Bud Light and Target by not firing Erick Reynolds from his job as a vice president of diversity, equity and inclusion that he got two years ago.
The company also features diversity programs that are meant for women and non-white people only.
Additionally, three years ago, Chick-fil-A Chairman Dan Cathy called for white Americans to shine the shoes of black people because the latter were once discriminated against in the United States. After that, he started shining the shoes of a black man himself while telling white people to have a sense of “shame” and “embarrassment.”
Aside from collaborating with race-exclusionary organizations like the National Black MBA Association, the Association of Latino Professionals of America and the Black Employee Resource Group, the company also wants to develop “mentorship, development and partnership opportunities for minority-owned businesses to strategically engage” with their supply chain.
For a recent sustainability report, the firm created an evaluation of “top ESG issues that internal and external stakeholders expect to grow in importance in the next five years,” which included “climate and energy stewardship” and “diversity, equity, and inclusion.”
Chick-fil-A published another sustainability report last week that also cited the firm’s commitment to “diversity,” saying that the company established a steering committee to provide insights for DEI initiatives and seeks to make diversity an “integral part” of their “culture of care.”
The fast-food company also halted its donations to several Christian organizations like the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, while donating to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Black Lives Matter and other leftist organizations.
