To be fair, I’ve boycotted Sam’s Club for years, the moment our town got a CostCo. But it had nothing to do about race. It has everything to do with MUCH better customer service at CostCo, better paid and happier employees at CostCo, and the fact that Sam’s Club is a Walton Family company.
Bandwagon anger is the worst kind. These are not people that can be reasoned with, and all the facts in the world won’t change their world view. They’ve always been there, but social media has made them louder and less afraid of the social stigma they would receive if they were shouting this in the town square.
