Rosalind Brewer, CEO of Sam’s Club, has come under fire for remarks she made in an interview with CNN recently about the diversity of the hiring process and condemnation of white males.
In fact, a movement to boycott Sam’s Club over the comments appears to be gaining momentum.
“It has to start with top leadership,” Brewer told CNN recently, according to Yahoo Finance. “My executive team is very diverse and I make that a priority. I demand it within my team.”
Basically, Brewer demands putting the color of a person’s skin over the quality of work someone can provide. That’s not only bad management; it’s racism.
“Just today we met with a supplier and the entire other side of the table was all Caucasian males,” she also said. “That was interesting. I decided not to talk about it directly with (the supplier’s) folks in the room because there were actually no females, like, levels down. So I’m going to place a call to him.”
So, Brewer is going to call the supplier’s CEO to discuss the lack of females representing his company; we call that sexism.
Upon the publication of these comments, thousands have called for a massive boycott of Sam’s Club. Twitter is going 100 miles a minute with tweets asking people to stop shopping there. Many people are waiting for some sort of corporate punishment, while some are curious to know why she hasn’t been fired already.
What would happen if Donald Trump made these comments after a meeting with several African-American women?
Al Sharpton would be inciting riots in every major city. The president’s spokesman would say that Trump is unfit for the White House — again. The ladies of “The View” would have conniption fits.
As Americans, we must be intolerant of racism and sexism elitists like Rosalind Brewer and allow every American — regardless of race or gender — to succeed or fail on the basis of his or her hard work, skills, experience and abilities.
