    Exclamation Chick-fil-A CEO urges white people to find strangers, 'shine their shoes' to combat racism

    Chick-fil-A CEO urges white people to find strangers, 'shine their shoes' to combat racism

    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news...-people-to-fi/

    By Douglas Ernst - The Washington Times - Thursday, June 18, 2020

    Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy says it’s time to find strangers and “shine their shoes” to combat racism in the U.S.

    The Christian businessman, long reviled by LGBT activists for his support of the traditional definition of marriage, suggested the idea while weighing in on Black Lives Matter protests across the nation.

    He made the remarks during a June 14 panel at Passion City Church in Atlanta.

    “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,” Mr. Cathy told Christian rapper Lecrae and Passion City Founder Louie Giglio.

    “Whether they got tennis shoes on or not — maybe they got sandals on — it really doesn’t matter,” he continued. “But there’s a time in which we need to have some personal action here. Maybe we need to give them a huge too. … I bought about 1,500 of these [shoeshine 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.”

    The businessman said that he got the idea after hearing about an incident at a Texas revival church.

    Someone at the event, distraught over racism in town, shined the shoes of an elderly black man.

    The 70-minute discussion also featured Mr. Cathy urging Americans not to “let this moment pass” or to “point fingers” at looters.

    “[We had] about a dozen Chick-fil-A restaurants vandalized in the last week, but my plea would be for the white people, rather than point fingers at that kind of criminal effort, would be to see the level of frustration and exasperation and almost the sense of hopelessness that exists on some of those activists within the African-American community,” he said.

    I really love Wendy's.

    It hurt me to see the Wendy's in ATL burned down.

    Chikfilit?

    Not so much.

    Maybe their throngs of new h0m0 customers will gather up a militia to protect their stores from the angry black hordes.

    Maybe risk management should check their insurance coverage.

    The absolute state of Chik Fil A.

    They were one of the holdouts. No more. Woke capital is omnipresent. This statement is particularly bizarre too.

    Chik-fil-a is my favorite food on the planet. I would eat it every meal if I could.

    I don't agree with the founder, but I don't boycott them over it.

    For what it is worth my daughter who is gay knows about the anti-gay stance and still eats there all the time. She doesn't boycott businesses over an owners views either.

    Also although I'm sure it's not official company policy but Chik-fil-a does not hire black people. I've never personally witnessed a black employee at any of their restaurants in all my travels. They only hire white Christians.

    You can rest assured that Chick-fil-a now fully supports h0m0's.

    Why I am not a Christian Part One Million.

    I accept no unearned guilt for any past sins or racism by people. I do not believe in "social justice". I only believe in justice which is protecting the rights of individuals from aggression.

    Also untrue: The one and only time I was at one, there were numerous black employees and patrons.
    That sounds familiar but I don't quite remember it.

    I will stand by what I said. I've been in probably 10-12 Chik-fil-a in probably 5-6 states on the east coast and have never once seen a black employee. Only young very obviously Christian people. They have a certain type of employee they favor.

    I like the food and don't care.

    I apologize, 69360. I confused you with Superfluous Man.

    I reviewed that thread and I was incorrect.

    Chick-fil-a now fully supports and funds the h0m0's.

    Bon appetite!

    This CEO's net worth is at least 6.6 Billion. Would the CEO share his wealth to the Black Community rather then asking millions of white Americans who had nothing to do with slavery?

    6.6 Billion is alot of wealth to keep for yourself. Thats quite the privilege.

    Like just anyone can put a good shine on shoes.

    My brother always wears a good pair of shoes to the airport because a black lady who is also an ex marine has a shoe shine chair there. He flew in for my dads funeral with shoes so shiney they'd blind you if the light them the right way.
