Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy got down on his knees and shined rapper Lecrae’s shoes after claiming white Christians should shine stranger’s shoes to “repent” for the “shame” and “embarrassment” of racism.
From CNS News, “Chick-Fil-A CEO: White People Should Shine Blacks’ Shoes to Show ‘Sense of Shame,’ ‘Embarrassment’ for Racism”:
Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy says white people should find black strangers, go up to them, and shine their shoes to show repentance for their sins of racism.
He once bought 1,500 shoe brushes for his employees to shine strangers’ shoes to exhibit their remorse for racism, Cathy said Sunday during a panel discussion at Passion City Church in Atlanta, Georgia.
By shining shoes, white Americans can express shame, embarrassment, humility and contrition, Cathy said.
