Black Sam’s Club CEO Calls For More Diversity, Conservatives Go Ballistic

This post originally appeared on AddictingInfo.org. 

The Party of Perpetually-Enraged White People is furious — mostly because it’s a day that ends in “-day,” but partly because theCEO of Sam’s Club had the gall to suggest that businesses should hire a more diverse team than the main cast of the Brady Bunch. The Stupid Part of America is accusing Rosalind Brewer of “racism” because the African-American CEO remarked that it is a problem when she meets with a company whose entire executive team is filled with white males.

“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.” In other words, she ensures that people of all races and sexes receive an opportunity to advance within the company. But here’s the part that really set conservatives off:

“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.”

Our frenemies on the Right jumped on that one faster than a Trump supporter on an African-American man standing up for his rights at a rally in Birmingham. Almost immediately, these headlines began popping up:

Boy, that sounds terrible — and it might be — if it happened to be true. All Brewer said was that it might be a bit of a problem that the company in question was headed solely by wealthy white men — but conservatives insist that she said companies should not hire white men. This assertion is, of course, ridiculous when one considers that half of her eight-person executive team are white men.

“Really? She’s going to dictate to another business their race and sex quotas? I hate to point this out to her, but that’s both racist and sexist on her end of the deal. I shop at Sam’s Club, but suddenly I’m wondering if that is such a good idea,” writes Right Wing News’ Terresa Monroe-Hamilton “I guess I’m just not ‘diverse’ enough for them.”

“While this does not appear to be an issue to the mainstream media since this is the admission of a Black corporate executive, however, if the roles were reversed and a White CEO admitted to the same, there would be massive backlash along with angry mobs calling for the chain of wholesale stores to be burned to the ground,” says Liberty News‘ Jenna Leigh Richardson.

“She is the dictionary definition of a prejudiced, racist bigot,” one commenter at Top Right News attacked. “But she’s a female of color so her prejudiced, bigoted racism is, like, totally OK.”

“When will white people start filing discrimination lawsuits? Or demanding equal treatment? We need our ‘safe spaces’, too,” another raged. “We need a White Miss America contest. A White Caucus in the House of Representative. A White entertainment channel. And stop calling us white — we’re European American.”

“Time for her to pay the price,” another added. “The liberals must be kept to the same standard as they try to impose on Conservatives.”

“Typical of black woman, really,” another added.

“Can only hope that this Affirmative Actioned CEO bring Sams exactly what they deserve!” a commenter at Liberty News writes. “Remember her name you will se it again!”

“And to think a white man from arkansas laid the groundwork for this bitches job….i worked at wal-mart as a retiree for a while and i have never seen such ignorance in one place….they cowtow to blacks, women, gays……” a commenter at Right Wing News complained. “And i don’t mean just being fair, if ur a white male, u r screwed…..”

“‘F*CK THAT SHIT’ more proof of the ”veryreal ” war being waged at all levels against ANY ” EVERY””and ::white man>>>>>>>>> dammi what the fuckkk is a caucasion this fuckkk_up word “OFFENDS” the hell out of me>>>>” another helpfully adds.

Needless to say….They mad.

Unfortunately, we can expect this white rage to amplify as the Trump Effect takes hold, with conservatives increasingly willing to say the things they have secretly felt but not said in the past. To conservatives, anything that does not maintain the white, straight, male status quo is a threat and therefore “racist” — and they are perfectly willing to actually get a lot racist to prove that point.
