Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy says white people should find black strangers, go up to them, and shine their shoes to show repentance for their sins of racism.
Chick-fil-a CEO Dan Cathy is a pampered and privileged multi-millionaire, and he wants the world to know that the occupation of shoe shining produces ‘shame and embarrassment’. I wonder how the families of unemployed black men during the Great Depression who shined shoes and were able to put food on the table might feel about that comment? But I digress. Cathy says that answer to our racial problems in 2020 just might be for whites to get on their knees and randomly start shining the shoes of black strangers. What tha…??
Not only is that stupid, and creepy, it would do nothing but make black people laugh at the idiocy of white people who would do that. Black rapper Lecrae was sitting on the panel with Dan Cathy when the chicken king spontaneously leaned over and began shining Lecrae’s shoes. The look on Lecrae’s face says it all, as you will see in the video below. If these are the ideas, it only goes downhill from here. Whatever happened to being nice and normal and just treating people decently? I think someone has spiked his lemonade.
Would you like some waffle fries to go with your white privilege, Dan?
Chick-Fil-A CEO: White People Should Shine Blacks’ Shoes to Show ‘Sense of Shame,’ ‘Embarrassment’ for Racism
FROM CNS NEWS: He once bought 1,500 shoe brushes for his employees to shine strangers’ shoes to exhibit their remorse for racism, Cathy said Sunday during a panel discussion at Passion City Church in Atlanta, Georgia.
By shining shoes, white Americans can express shame, embarrassment, humility and contrition, Cathy said.
“Maybe, we need to give them a hug, too,” he added, providing a demonstration to Christian Rapper Lecrae:
“I invite folks just to put some words to action here and if we need to find somebody that needs to have their shoes shined, we need to just go right on over and shine their shoes.”
“Whether they got tennis shoes on or not — maybe they got sandals on — it really doesn’t matter. But, there’s a time in which we need to have some personal action here. Maybe we need to give them a hug, too.
“I bought about 1,500 of these [brushes] and I gave them to all our Chick-Fil-A operators and staff a number of years ago.”
“So, any expressions of a contrite heart, of a sense of humility, a sense of shame, a sense of embarrassment begat with an apologetic heart — I think that’s what our world needs to hear today.” READ MORE
Hey Dan, Why Is Shoe Shining Something To Be Ashamed Of?
No shame here, Dan Cathy, why do you belittle people who shine shoes for a living? These people provide a valuable service and make lots of money doing it.

But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 15,500+ people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 150,000+ followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 15,900 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
