Buy-cott Home Depot

| No Comments

Already shop at Home Depot over Lowe's for a number of reasons (except for electrical switches and receptacles - Eaton/Arrow-Hart has better build-quality than Leviton). From that bastion of bias-free reporting The Huffington Post:

Home Depot Discriminated Against Worker For Black Lives Matter Support, NLRB Alleges
An official with the National Labor Relations Board has filed a complaint against Home Depot alleging that the retailer discriminated against a Minneapolis employee for their Black Lives Matter activism at work.

The filing from an NLRB regional director claims the company used its uniform policy to “selectively and disparately” punish workers who had the initials “BLM” on their Home Depot aprons.

One worker was allegedly told to choose between wearing the slogan and having a job at the store. That worker was suspended and then terminated, according to the complaint.

The complaint also alleges that management threatened workers with “unspecified consequences” over their Black Lives Matter activism during an online work meeting in February.

Black Lives Matter has absolutely nothing to do with poverty, living conditions or the plight of the urban black individual.  It is a Marxist grift by a few people who have made a lot of money off their supposed activist charity. Almost none of the donated money gets handed to the local communities, it all goes into a slush-fund for progressive and Marxist organizations. No money is used to actually help the urban black person. And don't forget about those luxury houses the founders own too - must be nice...


Under the National Labor Relations Act, workers have a right to join together to try to improve their working conditions under what’s known as “protected concerted activity.” The NLRB regional director who issued the complaint, Jennifer Hadsall, made clear in a statement that the law covers workers trying to address racial harassment in the workplace.

I bet that this will get shot down in court - this has nothing to do with working conditions.  The employee was trying to bring social activism into the work place.  Supporting this grift has nothing to do with helping someone choose a 2X6 for their carport. The perpetrators of BLM are the racists here.  They are racist bigots. They clutch their pearls and shriek and demand that we give them money. The sad thing is that many people do thinking that these bigots will go away.  They never go away, they just keep demanding more and more and more.

They need to be laughed at.  Mocked. Made fun of. Ridiculed. Compared to Dr. Martin Luther King and found severely wanting. We can see the content of their character.

Shop at Home Depot.  Spend money there. Lowes gives a lot of money to Democrat political campaigns.
