After Sam's Club's CEO Admitted To Discriminating Against White Males, Sam's Is Paying A BIG Price
Sam’s Club CEO Rosalind Brewer made no secret of her dislike at having to sit across the table from a group of white guys. In response, the Twittersphere is exploding with calls to give Sam’s Club what they think it deserves — fewer white customers.
Brewer touched off the controversy in an interview with CNN in which she made it clear that the color of a management team was very important to her.
“My executive team is very diverse and I make that a priority. I demand it within my team,” she said, noting that she favors minorities and women in the hiring and promotion processes.
She also demands it of everyone else.
“Just today we met with a supplier and the entire other side of the table was all Caucasian males,” she said in the interview. “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.”
Brewer’s remarks have sparked calls for a boycott.
“Sam Club’s idea of “diversity” is to not hire white men. That’s why I’m going to ##BoycottRacistSamsClub,” tweeted Nick Joseph.
“#BoycottRacistSamsClub because, if the CEO is uncomfortable around white executives, how about the white customer?” wrote a Twitter poster using the name I, Constitution.
“Lesson – Refuse to do business with any racial group of people you don’t like, and call it a ‘quest for diversity,'” tweeted a poster using the name Morality is Freedom.
