People are calling Sam’s Club CEO ‘racist’ after she gave an interview about diversity

Yahoo Finance – by Haley Peterson

Sam’s Club CEO Rosalind Brewer is being accused of discriminating against white men following a CNN interview where she discussed the importance of workforce diversity.

Brewer was asked by the interviewer how she promotes diversity within her company.

“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.”  

She said she mentors women inside and outside of her company, as well, and also encourages Sam’s Club’s partners to hire a more diverse workforce.

Now here’s the comment that ignited the uproar. Brewer said:

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.

Critics are claiming that Brewer’s remarks are evidence that she advocates against employing and hiring white men — even though four of the eight people on her executive team are white men. Some customers are now accusing Brewer of being “racist” toward white men and are threatening to boycott Sam’s Club.

The interview has since been shared widely by right-wing sites, including RedState, BizPac Review, and TeaParty.org, prompting some customers to criticize the company online.

As a white male I’m deeply offended by the remarks of your employee,” one person wrote on Sam’s Club’s Facebook page. “We will not be patronizing Sam’s Club until this is corrected.”

“Racism is alive and well in America,” another user wrote. “I will never spend a dime in a Sam’s club!”

A third wrote: “This is so wrong she needs to be fired ASAP.”

Walmart is standing behind Brewer’s remarks.

“For years, we’ve asked our suppliers to prioritize the talent and diversity of their sales teams calling on our company,” Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said. “Roz was simply trying to reiterate that we believe diverse and inclusive teams make for a stronger business. That’s all there is to it and I support that important ideal.”

Some critics reacted to Brewer’s remarks on Twitter:

Others showed support for Brewer:

    She cannot be a racist, she is black and she is slamming white males.

    I think this is a good idea. White people should JUMP at every opportunity to expose racism, because they’re usually the victims of it rather than being the perpetrators.

    The whole “racism” propaganda angle is really only a tool to attack white Americans, and it always was. When we start exposing racism against whites, and BANDING TOGETHER to boycott the “liberal” racists, who regularly employ racism as a tool of attack, we’ll see an end to the tool’s effectiveness.

    Had they all been black, or Mexican, or Chinese… that would NOT have been just as interesting, jewb#tch sleazebag?

    Diversity = White genocide-period.

    This white guilt thing is going to be one hell of a boomerang when people stop giving a shit about lower class, lower IQ mentalities. A Meritocracy would put them all back in the slums. Without guilt and pathetic racist laws, you have Benin, Togo, Ethiopia. Actually, all of the predominantly black countries are infantile/stillborn in every street and geopolitical strata.

    They kill what they don’t understand…which is almost everything under the sun. I wanted to be wrong for so many decades.
