In what could be the most ridiculous showing of white guilt in the history of white guilt, Dan Cathy, the CEO of Chick-Fil-A sent a message to white America.
He wants white people to repent of the sins of slavery by shining the shoes of black people, and he led by example, The Sun reported.
Speaking on a panel discussion at the Passion City Church in Atlanta, Georgia, with Christian rapper Lecrae and Louie Giglio, the church’s founder, Dan Cathy said of racial injustice: “Most of us, white people, we’re out-of-sight, out-of-mind oblivious to it.”
CEO OF CHICK A FILA WANTS WHITE PEOPLE TO SHINE SHOES OF BLACK PEOPLE

“We cannot let this moment pass,” he said. “Our silence is so huge at this time. We cannot be silent. Somebody has to fight and God has so blessed our city, but it’s shameful how we let things get so out of whack.”
His epiphany came after dozens of Chick-Fil-A establishments were vandalized in riots for the killings of George Floyd and Rayshard Brooks.
“We as Caucasians, until we’re willing to just pick up the baton and fight for our black, African American brothers and sisters, which they are as one human race, we’re shameful,” he said.
As he was speaking to the panel about taking action he got on his knees and shined the shoes of the rapper.
“Any expressions of a contrite heart, of a sense of humility, a sense of shame, a sense of embarrassment … an apologetic heart, I think that’s what our world needs to hear today,” he said.
His show of contrition came as other white people have been caught on video kissing the feet of black protesters.
“If we need to find somebody that needs to have their shoes shined, we just need to go right on over and shine their shoes and whether they got tennis shoes on or not, maybe they got sandals on, it really doesn’t matter.
“But there’s a time at which we need to have, you know, some personal action here. Maybe we need to give them a hug, too,” he said.
During the 70-minute talk Cathy implored Americans not to “let this moment pass” or to “point fingers” at the rioters and looters.
“[We had] about a dozen Chick-fil-A restaurants vandalized in the last week, but my plea would be for the white people, rather than point fingers at that kind of criminal effort, would be to see the level of frustration and exasperation and almost the sense of hopelessness that exists on some of those activists within the African-American community,” the CEO said.
Yeah Dan, perhaps if you shine the rioters and looters shoes they will not burn your business to the ground.
In fact, that could be what this entire thing is about. All the rioting, the looting, the attacking of random people. It could all be caused by a lack of shined shoes.
Does this man realize what a clown he looks like now? Not only to his customers but to the rioters and looters who should be laughing at him.
If he feels so strongly about helping the black community why does he not have billions from his more than $6 billion fortune and give it to black people?
Simple answer. Virtue signaling is a ton cheaper.
