      Exactly. I don't care if a company is racist or whatever to be honest. If the product is what I want and the deal is good that's all I'm looking for.

        It’s not even the case that the company is racist. I’m
        Sure they have Asians working in the business. Unless their actual charter said no asians can work here and we won’t serve Asians, then it’s hard to say a company is racist itself. How many racists would work for the NBN co? Must be heaps. I would bet my house that hundreds of Telstra employees’s wives have said far far worse privately. I don’t think that makes Telstra a racist company as a whole, to the point where we need to boycott it so they all lose their jobs.

        •  

          I guess the question is 'how accountable should the whole company be, if some CEO's bimbohead wife said something degrading to a group of people'?
          This can be applied to any company. Any, just choose your pick. But this one just hits harder for some people rather than others.
          People are boycotting certain food products because of the way they treat animals. These brands have employees too, so should people not protest? It's a personal decision i guess..

          Where to draw the line?

        I don't know about you, but I'd prefer politicians who are upfront like Trump rather than the typical politician.

        BTW for someone you call racist, actually has a lot of support from African Americans - "That’s why he signed a $360 million grant to support Historically Black Colleges and Universities last year — by far the most that any president has ever appropriated for HBCUs. Even America’s first black president, Barack Obama, never allocated that much money to HBCUs"

          Generally those that call trump racist do it without any actual reason how or why they believe him racist other than selective out of context reports from some left leaning media. Apparently wanting only legal immigration, border protection, good trade deals, and continuing long running policies is “racist”

            @Japius: Totally agree with you, it's the globalist vs nationalist agenda. Most sheeple just repeat what they hear on a biased media. Is it too much to expect news outlets to report the news as opposed to mold opinions? I guess everyone is bought and paid for…

            BTW in case anyone is wondering, I'm not a 50 year old white guy wearing a MAGA hat. I'm actually Asian, I do have MAGA hat for the novelty factor, but haven't worn it.

                  @SlavOz: Cringing replying to you based on your post history, but you must have missed the part where he did not condemn white supremicists and said there were fine people on both sides.

                  He is single handedly responsible for an increase in hate crimes.

                  He is a racist and biggot, there's absolutely no arguing that.

                  •  

                    @TEER3X: He's condemned White supremacy multiple times. The "fine people" comment was after the incident in Charlotsville, a rally that took place legally. 1 guy there rammed a car into a group trying to intimidate him. The rest of those at the rally, on both sides, were following the law and engaging in civil protest. They were within their rights. You may not like their message or political viewpoint, but they still have a right to say it.

                    Unless you can prove that every single person at the rally broke the law, then there is nothing wrong assuming that there are fine, law-abiding citizens on both sides. The Presidents job is not to condemn people for practicing free speech or right of assembly. In fact he's supposed to encourage it. It's a Constitutional right.

          Sorry for continuing the off-topic, I think Trump's arrogant attitude and low IQ are the main causes of all the hatred towards him. The guy is pretty straight forward (which I admire), he talks what comes to his mind, unlike conventional politicians. Then again one has to be careful and politically correct, especially if you are holding such a higher-up position where people watch every step you make and listen to every word you speak. He doesn't seem to care about what others think (due to arrogance) and doesn't seem to understand the consequences (due to low IQ). Still, we got to give him credits for what he's achieved so far given his own limitations.

        All I'm saying is that if we are honest with ourselves, we all have racist attitudes to some extent. The first step to changing attitudes is to first realise that we have these biases in the first place, and to be willing to be challenged on them, hopefully by those around us.

        I've actually boycotted companies for ethical issues like under paying workers (7-11) and huge environmental and ethics violations (majority of Unilever brands) these flops are pathetic.

        Off hand racist comments from some Queensland bimbo are enough to trigger hundreds of downvotes but they'll still support FoxConn installing suicide-nets to get the latest iPhone deal.

        Or rush to get a free coffee from 7-11.

        Or trample each other for fast fashion brands that dump dye into rivers in Bangladesh that cause tetragenic mutations.

      •  

        I guess the question is, how far should we draw the line?
        Almost every company would have something that someone would have an issue with. It just happens that this one frustrates people more than others.
        It's human behaviour….. we are irrational.

        •  

          I would phrase it illogical, as OZB loved companies commit crimes leading to human deaths and destruction of the environment yet you've gone after the ones that were caught being verbally abusive?

          One is death and destruction…the other is verbally offensive behaviour. It's just fascinating

          •  

            @FlatulentFrank: As i said, where should you draw the line?
            People can be more emotional to this than something else. If people are going to neg a different deal for another company for their own reason, should i tell them that they shouldn't, because so many other companies have done terrible things you believe is more worthy of outrage?

            If people feel more strongly about racism (the fact that you've pointed out that it's just verbally offensive proves how little you know about it. It's extremely degrading and please don't debate with me if every single degrading thing should affect everyone), than something else…. you're going to sit there thinking it's fascinating that they're not pissed about every other single thing? Really…

            Legitimate question, seriously where DO you draw the line?
            Should people not protest at all?

              Lol think you've jumped the gun there my friend, my life experiences with that very topic is something most will not experience nor understand. But articulating myself to the 'correct' language you feel is reasonable while jumping to conclusions is illogical and shows your inability to have a constructive conversation. There's a difference between ending lives & life long conditions in comparison to verbal abuse. I shouldn't have to spell that out.

              It's nice to feel righteous and assume things to suit your narrative but it falls extremely short this time. I can see it's not worth having a conversation with you as you are coming across extremely unpleasant. Muted, best of luck.

    I couldn't care less about the people in the company. People are idiots no matter where you go.
    All I'm concerned about is price and product quality.

    So considering a vast majority of their foods have MSG in them (ironic, considering the previously posted link re: the founder and racist comments - https://www.9news.com.au/national/youfoodz-founder-and-fianc...) that in itself prevents me from getting too hyped about the saving money side of things.

    •  

      I saw on the show Adam Ruins Everything, that MSG is hyped up as this bad thing but the evidence doesn’t actually support it being so bad for you.

      •  

        I think all he's saying is sprinkle msg on crap so that it doesn't tastes so bad.

    •  

      MSG is naturally in many cheeses, broccoli, pasta sauces, and nuts.

      Healthcare triage also found that in double-blind trials that 'MSG-Sensitive' people could not tell which foods did or did not have MSG based on their reactions.

      The correlation between heart disease and MSG has also been largely discredited due to dubious funding sources for 2 major studies which included foods that were not only sources of MSG but also high in fat and sugar… Both of which share causal links to heart disease if consumed frequently…

      Not only that, the prolific spread of anti-msg science is actually based in racism against Chinese restaurants.

    I'd say for most normal people when it comes to choosing someone to be your partner, they being a blatant racist would be an instant deal breaker. So if the owner's girlfriend is racist, I'd pretty much guarantee the owner is too.

        Nah racism and spousal abuse are not the same thing. Skinheads, Neo Nazis, KKK, One Nation party.. Racists like to stick with their own kind. You don't see the same thing with abusers. They usually choose to weak and vulnerable as a partner, not someone like them.
