National radio host Buck Sexton weighed-in on the controversy surrounding Starbucks Tuesday night; saying the company’s “knee-jerk” reaction to close 8,000 stores for anti-racism training was just the latest example of America’s “social justice” corporate culture.
“Why is Starbucks in trouble now? Over issues of race. This has now led to a shutdown of 8,000 stores. 175,000 employees are now going to receive anti-racism training,” said Buck. “The knee-jerk reaction is that you don’t want to deal with it. From the company’s perspective, you want the problem to go away.”
“You have to do something to show you take this issue very seriously,” he added. “Wherever you work, or wherever your family members work, they are being affected by this culture of appeasing whatever the social justice mob demands at any point in time.”
“You don’t want a boycott, you don’t want people picketing your stores,” Sexton said. “Now Starbucks has become a target. This isn’t about one company, it’s about corporate culture in America.”
