We know Chick-fil A is an “embattled,” establishment for Gays!-but are they, “Secretly” pushing an Anti Black Agenda as well?
This past week on Wednesday November 6, 2013-Dan Cathy’s (Owners Son) was promoted to CEO, and it was announced privately to company employees, but no formal public disclosure is planned at this time, a company spokesman said.
The company said Truett Cathy, (The founder) at age 92, nevertheless is in good health and that Dan Cathy’s progression to CEO is part of a succession to lead the company into the Future. S. Truett Cathy, the founder, is an 89-year-old, Harley-riding Southern Baptist who started Chick fil A as a small diner near the Atlanta airport 1946. He closed the business on Sundays because he was a churchgoer who required a day to relax and be with his family.
Specialists say New CEO Dan Cathy will be compelled to restrain tendencies to speak out about private and personal views that have thrust the company into the cultural battle and made dining at Chick-fil-A a wedge problem for some. One Example, Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” on August 1, 2012 was set for “conservatives” (who confuse Christian belief as axiomatically conservative opinion) to show those leftist liberals pushing gay marriage a thing or two about collected consumer power from the “right.”
Dan Cathy Anti Gay Statement;
“I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage’. I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.”
Dan Cathy also will face strategic resolutions on international development as the chain seeks to maintain its lofty extension and growth. Chick-fil-A runs 1,530 eateries in 39 states, but it still feels like a hometown restaurant to fans in Georgia, which has 189 outlets. Sales numbers beyond 2012 will most likely be over $3.5 billion a year, a spokesman said.
Questionable Franchise Practices
The organization’s Christian culture and its strict contracting practices, which require potential operators to review their marital status and civic and church involvement, had attracted debate before, a 2002 lawsuit brought by a Muslim restaurant owner in Houston who said he was fired because he did not pray to Jesus with other operators at a training session. The suit was settled.
A 10 year Sample Study conducted by the St.Petersburg Times shows the locations are 80 percent in the White Suburbs with little to no locations in Black Areas?
Looking at the area of Georgia’s 196 locations (those that were first opened in Clayton County when it was 90 percent white in the 1980s are outliers, with Riverdale, Jonesboro, Morrow, and Forest Park massively Black and those that were “grandfathered in” in East Point); the establishment – in some cases a fabled “Dwarf House” being remnants of past civilization while the surrounding area becomes littered with liquor, Title Loan stores, and pawn shops), it is striking how those “thriving communities with high social capital” that Chick-fil-A Owners/Operators invest are amazingly and overwhelmingly white.
So is The business model of Chick-fil-A…. Racist? Does it conform to the method that was laid out in theory of the Affordable Family Formation (cities with Chick-fil-A’s tend to actually have thriving communities)? Should the Department of Justice look into the locations of Chick-fil-A’s because of some sort of disparate impact in where they open, considering that the clientele that Owners/Operators tend to cater to is overwhelmingly white?
Chick-fil-A is reliant on strong communities (which, coincidentally, means white communities) to exist and prosper.By controlling certain variables (hospitals weren’t counted; nor were malls, considering that they have a tendency to go from catering to a majority white clientele to a majority Black clientele in a matter of years) it became a comedy of errors in seeing where Chick-fil-A decides to open up stores.
Outside of Chick-fil-A’s in areas that went from majority white to majority Black (thus, grandfathered in), the company has a business model that can be accurately described by many as “discriminatory management practices,” or even go so far as to say racist. GLG
