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

Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 6/18/2020 3:00:15 PM

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.(Snip) “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.


This adds perverse detail to the Fox News article already posted. Why not take an extra step? When a bLACK person appears at Chick-Fil-A, have the white members of the staff prostrate themselves in the foyer so the bLACK patron can stride across their backs, as a symbolic gesture. Why not sell franchise rights to bLACK people at a steep discount, or give them a special discount on food, seeing how their average salaries are that much lower than those of the despised white people?

I would be livid were I a franchise holder. As a former regular customer, this latest move reconfirms my decision to never (trigger alert) darken their doorsteps again. I do not want a side of politics with my food, most certainly not of the corrosive Marxism we get everywhere else.

I really wish he had just stuck to making the best fast food around. Not everyone (business) needs to appear "woke" and come out with some slobbering statement about their pereived (real or imagined) racial shortcomings. I'm still waiting for some nimrod to suggest we rename Washington DC and the White House. Believe me, it's coming.

I kept saying this has to be fake news, or at very least The Onion. But alas, No. There are no real men left in media, tech, Hollywood, or corporate America (except for maybe the “My Pillow Guy”). What this country desperately needs is a few George Pattons to drive the damned girlie-men and manly-girls from our midst.

I used to eat at CfA at least 3-4 times a week. I was known to go 20 miles out of my way to get to one. I was happy to do it because they stood for the values I have, and that is important. Plus I loved their food!!! I haven't been boycotting them. I just lost interest when they folded to the "woke" crowd and changed the groups they supported. There isn't one all that close, and I have no desire to go out of my way to support them any more. However, now I am done. Lie-berals will never forgive them for the fact that they used to be unapologetically Christian, and conservatives will no longer care. But I am still not "boycotting" them. Boycotting implies a temporary change in a habit. Once you lose me, it's forever.

Pay attention! This ''Dan Cathy'' is NOT the founder of the restaurant chain, but only the son of the founder. As such, I don't think he has any skin in the game. Maybe the madness hasn't yet reached the units in other states. Sounds like corporate touchy-feely idea.

1) I didn't ask for a lecture, nor did your wonderful franchise owners who Cathy is damaging with his lecture. Honestly, I pity the first young scared liberal that tries to lecture me about not wearing a mask. I have reached my limit of "know it all" idiots. 2) For those who are prone to receive instructions like this, I can just imagine a few responses they might get: "Are you saying my shoes are filthy? Get away from me, are you trying to look up my dress?! You think you can do away with the sin of slavery by cleaning my shoes?! Now that you are done, go get me some chicken."

"If I, the master and teacher, have washed your feet, then you also should wash one another's feet." I'll take Mr. Cathy's exhortation in the Christian context. If I do shine someone's shoes, though, I will only say that it is in imitation and obedience of Jesus. If pressed about BLM or reparations, I hope I will be strong enough to simply repeat that I do this in obedience of Jesus' command and imitation of his way. Maybe adding only that I follow Christ, not human politics.

Talk about going too far! Chances are he does not want to start having his restaurants destroyed by “peaceful protestors” who in the old days used to be called arsonists, looters, and people just out to steal his chicken. He would be much better off just handing a free chicken sandwich of their choice , waffle fries, a fountain drink and a napkin to every Black person or white liberal who shows up to burn down and loot his restaurants. By doing that he would also bring a lot of Popeye’s Chicken customers out of the cold.

Isn't it enough that their communist professors ruined my brother and one of my grandkids? If someone suggests that to me in person I will beat them to a bloody pulp.

Now after this, bowing down for 30 pieces of silver, whimpering "don't hurt me!" to the savages, and giving money to the extortionists, I will never eat their chicken ever again.

How clueless and ignorant can people get? Do blacks want their shoes shined? Do blacks want black people removed from all food products? Do they want the 'B' in black to be capitalized? Do blacks want to disband the police? No. Blacks don't want to get killed when they have an encounter with the police. Everything else is nonsense.

Whites in this country owe blacks nothing. Their freedom was paid for by 350,000 white Union soldiers who died fighting to end slavery and to save the country. It's up to blacks to take advantage of all the opportunities available to them created by the federal and state government.

Tasted for the most part like cardboard. When will these SJW CEOs learn that alienating at least half your customer base is a sure road to bankruptcy. Let's see if this CEO pandering to the mob will spare Chuck up Fila stores from the next round of looting and burning. Come to think of it has Chuck up Fila actually built any stores in the democrat communist plantation ghettos?

Until ALL black lives matter to BLM I will give them the respect they deserve which is none. Actually I do not believe any black life matters to them; only money matters.

I have posted on these pages favorably toward CFA for several years. I like their chicken salad sandwiches, which they have discontinued, but I do not like their chicken strips (my other default order) because the batter has an off taste----perhaps of sage. Posting here in the interests of truth. Since their shunning of the Salvation Army, we have not visited CFA, and we were regulars before then, especially since the brouhaha over homosexuality. NOW I will never go back. Fried chicken is best made at home anyway. Of the fast food chicken, I prefer the Colonel's, although God only knows what their political views are.

Very interesting thread. Seems to include a lot of defensive anger and some pretty obvious racial stereotypes. Cathy is obviously acting on his Christian beliefs to show humility to the least of us. I'd be curious to see how ordinary black people would react to this kind of virtue signaling. It seems to be more pretentious than the overt racism that they face every day. At least overt racism isn't polluted by hypocrisy. It's clear that critical race theory is very similar to Calvinism. You are either saved or damned at birth and nothing you can do will change that divine judgement.

Better yet, Cathy should make it mandatory for all white Chix A-Fil customers to shine the shoes of a black person as a condition before ordering from their menu. Let's see how his business handles that before demanding the same from the general public.

One time I went to a Bojangles and got a mouthful of political view from a teenage punk behind the counter. I found the franchise owner and told him to tell that kid he would always be working in a fast food restaurant and he should keep his political views to himself. You never know who is a relative or friend of the person being trashed. Never went back and the place closed.

The only thing that will ever change the problem of race relations in this country, perceived or otherwise, is if there is a mass migration of minority people from the inner cities to the suburbs. I have spent all of my 88+ years living in the suburbs. There has been no overt hostility between the races in the two neighborhoods in which I have dwelt, and, the current one of over 50 years of residence has always been well represented by minorities. Unfortunately, that will never happen because it is the last thing minority leaders want to happen. Why? Because it would result in a drastic reduction in the number of minority politicians being elected and thus a serious reduction in minority political influence. Those minority politicians and leaders are only too willing to tolerate the sub-standard existence of their people in order to gain personal power(and, concurrently, personal financial gain). So, sadly, just face it, the status quo will forever be with us until the action I suggested is undertaken. The countless trillions of dollars of taxpayer dollars this country has provided for multitudes of various welfare programs have done nothing to improve race relations and they never will. Neither will phony exercises in bowing down at the feet of others by various methods. You cannot dictate public behavior, it must be experienced!

The Chicago Public Library is temporarily removing six Dr. Seuss books from circulation after Dr. Seuss Enterprises announced it would cease to publish the books due to racist and insensitive imagery. ”It is important to recognize that what society understands to be relevant and/or common knowledge changes over time, and so too does the Library and the needs of the communities it serves,” Patrick Molloy, a spokesperson with the library, said in a statement. “Library staff encourage patrons of all ages to engage critically with our materials, but materials that become dated or that foster inaccurate, culturally harmful stereotypes are removed

A French schoolgirl has admitted to telling lies about a teacher who was beheaded after an online hate campaign kickstarted by her comments. The unidentified girl had claimed that high school teacher Samuel Paty showed an image depicting the Prophet Mohammed during a lesson on free speech. She said that Paty had asked Muslim pupils to leave the class before he showed the image, which had appeared in the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. On Monday, the girl's lawyer revealed that his client, 13, had confirmed that she did not actually attend the class and was off sick at the time.

Thousands of illegal immigrants are being set free across the country as the crisis on the southern border escalates—and the White House admitted Monday it isn’t doing enough to discourage people from seeking unlawful entry to the United States. Speaking to reporters during a press briefing, White House press secretary Jen Psaki acknowledged the failures after being pressed about the administration’s handling of the situation. “I would say it’s clear we need to work more on getting the message out and being very clear, now is not the time to come,” said Psaki, before reiterating the Biden administration’s claim that “the majority

Rep. Steve Cohen vowed to renew the push to remove former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover’s name from the bureau’s downtown Washington headquarters, according to an interview released Monday. Appearing on Yahoo! News’ Skullduggery podcast, the Tennessee Democrat said the effort is getting a fresh look after the release of a new movie highlighting the FBI’s secret program to discredit civil rights activists. The Washington Times in 2019 first reported Democrats’ bid to strip the longtime FBI director’s name from the bureau’s headquarters. Mr. Cohen said the impetus to revive the bid is the new movie, “Judas and the Black Messiah.” The movie details

Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab.

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.
