All this modern racism and diversity shit isn't about treating people better; it's about power and control and special treatment.

100% agree that if he had used it in a derogatory way with an intent to treat people like shit, then he should have to pay the price, but then I think that about execs treating people like shit generally, and it goes on WAY more than normal people realize.

Nobody is saying it's not the rule. I agree that he deserves some sort of criticism or censure. I disagree that it is grounds for immediate firing and literally chiseling his name off a stone building.

I man, I agree that it should be illegal to steal a car, but that doesn't mean you should get an immediate life sentence no appeals.

OP is right. Diversity training is literal entrapment.

"The worst kind . . . ? Well, I guess I would say something like 'nigger' . . . ."

that's kind of the point. there are some things you just know better than to talk about. nothing inherently wrong with anal sex, but it's a widely-understood professional (not talking about drinks out with your bros but 10 AM all-hands conference calls) no-go zone. are the rules purposefully chosen and selectively enforced to benefit the left's sacred cows? absolutely. you can either acknowledge that reality or not, but i'd rather not put my family's livelihood in jeopardy just to irl n-thread.

no, the appropriate analogy is if the company hired consultants to train their employees to stop bringing up "anal sex" at work, but then when they were discussing the topic and the CEO said the word "anal sex" in the midst of the discussion, he got fired

you're just being imprecise ITT.

you make arguments like "do you use the word at work?"

i would never talk about anal sex at work, but pretty sure if i were a CEO of a public company i wouldn't get fired and literally have my name erased from buildings if i were to opine that some other CEO talked about anal sex all the time and never had any repercussions.

there isn't really a broader point to be made, though you seem to try to be reaching for one. the point, of course, is that blacks, and by proxy the left, have singled out the use of "nigger", now seemingly whether done with intent to offend or even with intent to educate of its harm, as a way to justify destroying people and going buckwild.

how hard is it to understand that you're not allowed to say that word under any circumstance?

*you hire a diversity training company*

*company asks you to list offensive words*

*you list offensive words*

*you are fired that same day*

I think we were still at the place, culturally, where mention of the word 'nigger', in a sober context about how painful its use can be, was considered by some blinkered boomers as acceptable. By now, with this, however, it should be clear to everyone that liberals are sirens singing you to shipwreck, and no one should ever, ever do "diversity training" or, indeed, speak out loud to liberals.

while there is a general rule of don't use slurs in a white collar environment, when you build it...you should be able to go full Marge Schott.

giving any control of a business you make to others is a bad deal imho.

all we get are snippets, but it's clear he was condemning racism. next time CNN says we need a national conversation on race, just remember that that means "we want to trap non-racists and destroy them as an example of our power."

Papa John's founder John Schnatter resigns as chairman after apologizing for N-word comment

John Schnatter, the founder of Papa John's, resigns as chairman of the company's board.

Schnatter apologized for using the N-word during a May conference call after Forbes magazine reported the incident.

The stock rebounded Thursday morning, recouping Wednesday's losses.

Papa John's founder John Schnatter has resigned as chairman of the board after admitting and apologizing for using the N-word during a May conference call.

Shares of the pizza chain were up more than 5.2 percent in premarket trading Thursday — recovering all of the $96.2 million in market value the company lost after Schnatter's comments were reported by Forbes the day before.

Papa John's said in a statement late Wednesday night that it will appoint a new chairman in the coming weeks. Olivia Kirtley, the board's lead independent director, will run the board until a permanent replacement is found, it added.

News of Schnatter's resignation came shortly after Major League Baseball indefinitely suspended its Papa Slam promotion — a campaign that both sides have collaborated on since 2016.

The conference call in May came to light after Forbes magazine detailed the incident in an article Wednesday. The report, which was later confirmed by Schnatter, said he was on a call with marketing agency Laundry Service when he tried to downplay comments he made about the National Football League last fall by saying, “Colonel Sanders called blacks n-----s" and never faced any public backlash at KFC.

According to Forbes, Schnatter added that people used to drag African-Americans from trucks until they died. Although his comment was apparently intended to convey his distaste for racism, Forbes said multiple people on the call were offended. The call was part of media training for Schnatter to prevent future public relations fumbles.

“News reports attributing the use of inappropriate and hurtful language to me during a media training session regarding race are true," Schnatter said Wednesday in a statement released by Papa John's. "Regardless of the context, I apologize. Simply stated, racism has no place in our society.”

His departure as chairman comes just seven months after he abruptly exited the C-suite. Schnatter faced backlash in November for critical statements he made about the NFL that ultimately caused the league to remove the pizza chain as an official sponsor.

These incidents underscore the risks of using an individual to represent a brand, said crisis communications consultant Dan Hill, CEO of Hill Impact.

“You do not want to give Jeff Bezos a seven-year head start.”

“This is the danger when organizations are too tied to a personality,” Hill told CNBC. “We saw it with Subway and Jared ... when things are going well and those people are popular, and they are doing smart things, it works. But then you have a single point of failure and it’s that person’s actions that reflect on the entire organization.”

While Schnatter is no longer the CEO or chairman of Papa John's, he is still tied with the brand's image and is featured prominently on the company's pizza boxes.

“I think the big thing for them going forward is how do they distance themselves entirely from John?" Hill said.

Papa John's fell by as much as 5.9 percent Wednesday to a 12-month low before rebounding Thursday. Papa John's stock is down nearly 14 percent so far this year while Domino's shares have gained 48 percent.
