    I guess some niggers got upset.

    You can murder your baby in the womb, consider yourself a 5th gender, sleep with anyone, everyone, and anything, but don't you dare say nigger or your life is over.
    Stop, world, I want to get off.

  • I agree. He messed up and said "nigger". And? It's very hard to disagree with the zeitgeist these days, so it's no surprise that he got fired.

    He shouldn't be fired from everything, though. Not at all. It's his company!

  • Shouldn't music and comedy shows ban the "N" word?

  • Seriously... have some class.  :really-mad2:

    Some words just aren't appropriate for mixed company.  "All things have their season, and in their times all things pass under heaven."

    No wonder so many people are turned off by so-called "traditionalism".

    I'm not defending his use of the racial slur - moreso that he made a mistake, apologized and shouldn't have his name scrubbed from everything. It's his company that he started from the ground up.

    So how does a pizza chain fire the owner of the company? Was it the board of directors of a corporation? 
    If so, then he wasn't really the "owner." The shareholders own the corporation, so he must not have had 51% of the shares?

    .
    Papa John's Founder and former CEO John Schnatter -- resigned as chairman of the board, following outrage over the use of a racial slur on a conference call. (Reuters)
    .

    Papa John’s further distanced itself from founder John Schnatter Friday over his use of a racial slur during a May conference call, saying he would no longer be included in advertisements as the company sought to “regain trust.”
    .
    The statement by CEO Steve Ritchie was shared on social media hours after the University of Louisville said it planned to remove the pizza company’s name from its football stadium. This follows Major League Baseball’s suspension of a leaguewide Papa John’s promotion, while some teams have vowed to shutter stadium concession stands.
    .
    Schnatter, 56, uttered the racial slur during a call between Papa John’s executives and the marketing agency Laundry Service, Forbes reported Wednesday. The group was undergoing a role-playing exercise meant to prepare for public relations challenges.
    .
    During his first full-length interview Friday, Schnatter, who still has a substantial ownership stake in the company and sits on its board, told WHAS in Louisville that his comments were taken out of context but he still expressed contrition for hurting people.
    .
    “I can’t talk like that even if it’s confidential and it’s behind closed doors,” he said. “I did it. And I own it. And I’m sorry. And I’m sick about it, frankly.”
    .
    He resigned as chairman of the company’s board late Wednesday and also stepped down from the University of Louisville’s Board of Trustees after the local branch of the NAACP called for his removal.
    .
    After news that he had used the n-word went viral, Papa John’s stock plunged to a 12-month low. The subsequent update, confirming his resignation, however, caused prices to surge 12 percent over the following days. Rebound notwithstanding, Schnatter’s stepping down did little to quell the growing cloud around the company.
    .
    .
    Fair warning to CEOs not to get too involved with role-playing games directed at improving public relations!!

    In his statement Friday, Ritchie said that, “Papa John’s is not an individual. Papa John’s is a pizza company with 120,000 corporate and franchise team members around the world.” He promised an external audit of company policies, training for senior management, and an open-door policy encouraging employee feedback.
    .
    The company could suffer a bit because Schnatter is inextricably intertwined with Papa John’s, said Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, Senior Associate Dean for Leadership Studies at Yale School of Management.
    .
    He pointed to Martha Stewart as a case where the association didn’t hurt her product because “her base cared more about the square inch of her fabric.” But Schnatter may have alienated his customers.
    .
    “He may just want to sever all ties,” — including divesting his ownership interest — “simply because people won’t want to enrich him,” Sonnenfeld said.
    .
    Schnatter, a Trump donor, had already stepped down as his company’s chief executive in January after he faced fallout for blaming staggering pizza sales on the National Football League protests.
    .
    “The ratings have gone backward because of the controversy,” Schnatter had said at the time. Papa John’s was an NFL advertiser and President Trump had attacked the NFL and its players who knelt in protest over racial injustice and police brutality. “The controversy is polarizing the customer, polarizing the country.”
    .
    Schnatter founded the company shortly after he graduated from Ball State University, opening the first restaurant in 1985, in Jeffersonville, Ind. Papa John’s — PZZA on Nasdaq — went public in 1993 and has grown into a corporate chain with more than 5,100 locations around the world.
    .
    The brand is deeply intertwined with its founder’s image — which adorns the company’s pizza boxes — presenting challenges for corporate management to distance itself from him.
    .
    “I don’t condone racism. I don’t condone prejudice,” Schnatter said, adding that he would like to issue an apology to the university’s football players of color, “if they would let me.”

    .
    There you go again, trying to inject LOGIC into an entirely emotionally-charged issue.
    .
    I can just imagine all the blacks throwing pieces of pizza around in protest, even if it's not Papa John's.
    .
    They might even throw some on your car -- or on you. But they won't be held liable for any damages. That would be "racist."
    .
    I find it highly IRONIC that this news comes out just as news of Charles Manson's estate hits the news, when the court has said that his estate is being restricted to two people, one of whom is his grandson. 
    .
    Why ironic?
    .
    If you don't recall, it was Manson himself who explained that his murder spree was his attempt to jump-start a RACE WAR between blacks and whites.

  • Schnatter committed an unforgivable sin, according to leftists and mainsteam media. As though it is one of the most horrible things ever to use the "N" word. That being said, Schnatter should have been more guarded in his language; he knows that now. 

    The mainstream media has to find a way justify leftist outrage against others, especially White guys.
