Here are some of my diversity and inclusion heroes and zeros for August 2014-
Feel free to send me your diversity and inclusion heroes and zeros.
Diversity and Inclusion Hero #1 is
The Chicago White Sox for sponsoring a night called “LGBT Pride Night, Out At the Sox,” on August 16, when they played against the Blue Jays. So if you live in Chicago, I hope you cancelled all other plans and bought a ticket. Remember we have to support the people who support us. I expect to see a bunch of selfies to prove you were at the game.
And corresponding Diversity Zeros- all the bigots drinking gallons of Haterade who posted hate bites like When is the Straight Pride night going to be? Duh! It’s everyday, but then again this person is waiting to attend doofus pride. You don’t need a night because you show your doofus pride every time you open your mouth.
An honorary diversity and Inclusion hero wrote back:
And to those "Where is straight pride night" people... come back to me when you can point out a time when straight people were persecuted and alienated because of their orientation. I'll give you a hint and save you time: IT'S NEVER HAPPENED. EVER.
You jerks are an absolute disgrace to humanity.
Go White Sox- my father was from Chicago and the White Sox was his team.
Diversity and Inclusion Hero #2 although a little late to the party but it’s actually never too late to come out for equality-
Target, who announced their public support for marriage equality by signing an amicus brief before a Chicago federal appeals court.
And corresponding Diversity and Inclusion zero(we expected this,) the National Organization for Marriage who are planning a boycott.
President of this fringe group Brian Brown said “I'm announcing a new boycott today, against Target, for insulting consumers like you and me. The brief they signed in court this week insinuates that people like you and me, who would vote to uphold traditional marriage, as akin to segregationists and racial bigots. Would you want to shop at a place that viewed you in that way?”
What did the used to say about protesting too much? And If the shoe fits…….
Really National Organization for Marriage- I don’t see Target suffering. In fact, I know where I’m buying my new curtains and shower curtain- T A R G E T.
And finally diversity and inclusion incarnation of Satanic foolishness, talk show host Rick Wiles (who is he anyway)? who said on his show “It may be the great attitude adjustment that I believe is coming. Ebola could solve America’s problems with atheism, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, pornography and abortion. If Ebola becomes a global plague, you better make sure the blood of Jesus is upon you, you better make sure you have been marked by the angels so that you are protected by God. If not, you may be a candidate to meet the Grim Reaper.”
What hatches some of these zeros, “Godzilla?”
