No More Chik-Fil-A For Me: Chick-fil-A Just Dropped A BOMBSHELL On ‘Black Lives Matter’ That Is Just Hateful

It’s not too often a large company like Chick-fil-A gets involved in a controversial topic, but they have thrown themselves right smack in the middle of the #Black Lives Matter movement with a statement that has millions of people talking across the country.

Police Lives Matter is a movement that counters BLM by encouraging citizens to support police officers that put their lives on the line every single day for citizens across the country.

Police officers are here to protect citizens and will do so regardless of color, as long as you cooperate and obey the law. However, it seems that Chick-fil-A is not buying the whole #BlackLivesMatter movement.

In fact, they have boldly endorsed the police and their justification of killing black people by having their employees wear t-shirts that support police brutality against Black citizens, even the unarmed and innocent who were murdered for no reason.

To show support for law enforcement, Chick-fil-A has unveiled their “Back The Blue” t-shirts:

    The author is not just ignorant but also prejudice. Why would you not support an organization that does so many good things for every community where they are located? Instead this author chooses to support a hate group. Sad that this even got published as news.

    • phil

      The fact that you referenced a group that has only promoted peace as a “hate” group shows your prejudice and ignorance.

      • mastedon2

        Peace as in Kill all white babies? What do we want, Dead Cops, when do we want them “now”.. Phil you are an ignorant person……

        • Who is promoting killing white babies? None of the BLM groups I’ve ever encountered have said anything about killing anyways, babies, law enforcement or no. Don’t believe everything you hear on Fix News.

          • Damn_you’re_dumb

            She said none of the ones she has ever encountered pussy. You can’t really read can you? Besides, cops have killed plenty of children, the dickhead above you as well as yourself have no true understanding of rationale.

          • John Rainwater

            I love it when people call me names. It means I struck a chord with them. I don’t normally lead off with hey dumbfuck in my own comments because it implies I have been reduced to namecalling and that is really a juvenile approach to a grown up conversation. If I thought it would matter, I would take it back but I know it won’t. Besides, I really meant it. How many BLM groups has she ever encountered? Maybe one? And they didn’t do it. So all of a sudden, no BLMers she has ever heard of is doing it, yet here is proof that there is groups that are doing it. I was just informing here that they are out there and maybe she needed to do a little research before she starts spouting off because this shit, WAS in the news. So now that you have jumped in an attacked me and my character with all your shit about me sitting on my front porch with my little radio or whatever shit came out of your mouth, we see who is looking down on people, making judgments, and I detected a bit of racism in there as well. But, I refuse to stoop to that level because you know nothing about me. I won’t even stoop so low as to call you a stupid nigger because similarly I know nothing about you. Nigger isn’t a color, it’s an attitude. And while I believe you are an idiot, I respect your opinion and your decision to be a racist asshole. By the way, show me where cops are killing babies. Half the blacks conceived since Roe v Wade was instituted in 1973 have been aborted. So who’s killing babies? Did you know that the black population hasn’t even increased by one percent since 1969? Do you know why that is? Because you can’t stop killing each other. Cops aren’t the problem. Blacks seem to be the problem. Not for whites because cops kill twice as many of us than blacks every year. Blacks are the problem for blacks. Black teens just shot up a club in Florida killing a 12 year old and a 14 year old. Look up Hey Jackass.com. It shows how many dumbfucks are killing blacks in Chicago every day. Something like 2500 blacks are killed every year by other blacks and cops across the country last year killed 250 blacks. So I say again. Fuck you and your bullshit.
            In 2012, white males were 38 percent of the population and committed 4,582 murders. That same year, black males were just 6.6 percent of the population but committed a staggering 5,531 murders.

            In other words: black people–at just a fifth of the size–committed almost 1,000 more murders than their white counterparts.

            DOJ statistics show that between 1980 and 2008, black people committed 52% of homicides.

            In 2013, black criminals committed 38% of the murders. Whites accounted for just 31 percent.

            There are five times fewer black people than white people in America and, yet, they consistently carry out a larger share of the crimes?

            There have been almost as many deaths in one American city as there have been in the two major wars carried out by the U.S. military this century.

            Chicago’s death toll from 2001–November, 26 2015 stands at 7,401. The combined total deaths during Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003-2015: 4,815) and Operation Enduring Freedom/Afghanistan (2001-2015: 3,506), total 8,321.

            It would take cops 40 years to kill as many black men as have died at the hands of others black men in 2012 alone.

            University of Toledo criminologist Dr. Richard R. Johnson examined the latest crime data from the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports and Centers for Disease Control and found that an average of 4,472 black men were killed by other black men annually between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012.

            Professor Johnson’s research further concluded that 112 black men died from both justified and unjustified police-involved killings annually during this same period.

            So. Show me where cops are the problem. In the mean time, take your racist bullshit and shove it up your ass. When blacks start giving a damn about blacks killing each other I will start giving a damn when one is killed by police officers.

            This.

      • Kelly Shearer

        Peace?? As in shooting police officers?? Blocking ambulances from making it hospitals??? Obviously you are the one ignorant about the horrible things happening based on let’s face it, a racist inspired movement…

        • Elizabeth Harvey

          You people are so misinformed! Another one that’s part of the problem!

      • skat

        What peace have BLM promoted? Lol..fucking joke. Only serves to prove how uneducated the people following that group are, seriously. If you want to promote peace, stop breeding.

        • Elizabeth Harvey

          Why don’t you stop breading, you are part of the problem!

      • BaliHai84

        Only promoted peace? That’s why FERguson and BALTimore got destroyed, looted and burned down. Please. BLM is a hate group.

    • Damn_you’re_dumb

      Because Todd, they do not do so many good things for every community they are located in. Plenty of video evidence.

      • Dan Sainz

        Haven’t done so in mine or MOST communities you’re generalizing because you try to sound Right instead of trying to sound like you know what the fuck you’re talking about

    • Elizabeth Harvey

      Do you not see how police treat Black people in this country? The organization does good things for your people, most black people’s experiences with police are negative and people like you that don’t see or understand are Part of the Problem!

      • Rodney E Overby

        Yea ok..it is white people and police who are shooting and killing 100 black men and women every month in chicago huh? Clean up your own problems before you cry about the cops.

  • Zachary Troutman

    The author obviously supports BLM. So being biased on the topic makes the comments corrupt. Blue loves matter.

    • John “Kahless” Taylor

      Blue love? Is that some STD thingy? 🙂

  • David Prichard

    BLM is being used as a political pawn to continue the SAME POLICIES that have devastated our inner cities and black morale for almost 30 years. WE (blacks & whites, hand-in-hand), won the Civil Rights movement, only to sell our inner cities down the drain by wasteful Washington bureaucracies, Marxist policies, Globalism on steroids, and corruption across the board. Politicians have gotten rich, their friends have gotten rich, and they couldn’t care less that our inner cities are a shambles and 75% [?] of the African American community is no better off than they have been since the 1980’s – as long as they have the advantage of being “in the club” (Republican, Democrat), then they seem to be satisfied. I only see ONE OUTSIDER CANDIDATE who IS ABLE to make a difference and begin the LONG PATH BACK to an ACCOUNTABLE GOVERNMENT. The other Outsider, the Elitists already knocked into the dirt because the opposing candidate has been running some kind of mafia organization for decades that is so powerful that it has literally hijacked almost their whole party’s elite… I can’t guarantee you how much this Outsider Candidate WILL fix. But I believe he is our only hope for ANY REAL CHANGE that can UNDO what corrupt politicians have been doing to gum up the natural flow of decent jobs and resources to our lower and middle class people.

  • tthorman

    If Black lives matter, who is protesting the black policeman that was killed in Dallas? Does that Black life matter to you? Or is he expendable because he’s a police officer? What about all the Black lives that are snuffed out by gangs? Who is protesting them? Hundreds of Black men are being killed by Black hoodlums all around America in the inner cities. If BLM can muster enough to close a freeway, why don’t they go into the inner cities and get the bastards who are killing Black children every day with illegal weapons? (This is where we hear the crickets chirping due to no answer by the ill-informed idiot that posted this…..)

    • According to a chicago activist and blm organizer, Jessica, they want to disarm and disband all police and come up with community solutions. Now, this lady is from Chicago, where people are dying by the thousands and she wants to get rid of police? Where is she gonna hide….a bunker? Thats what the innocent families will need if she got her wish. Apparently community solutions havent worked with law enforcement, how the heck does she think it would work then?

    • Damn_you’re_dumb

      You’re an idiot and I can tell you’ve never been to any of the places you think you’re talking about. Life isn’t that way there, but because you’re a prejudice white and sheltered from the ‘dangerous’ parts of life you think it’s all cookie cutter solutions. You dumbasses don’t really shock me but its still crazy how willfully ignorant you are.

      • Dan Sainz

        You’re the only willfully Ignorant one I see here

    • Jackie Alexander

      There were no black police killed in the Dallas July 7th shooting. There were some shot though fyi.

    • frank96740

      lol – i still like the idea – too bad it ISN’T true…

    • The original shirt was created for one store’s local team but kept them to support law enforcement. As popularity of them grew, they are now nationwide as a show of support of the Officers.

  • ugottabekiddinme

    Well this just goes to show that everybody can get their 15 minutes of fame. I think I’ll be buying a bit more chik fil a for a while. They are a little pricey for me because I’m POOR.

    • Julie

      Every time someone tries a boycott of Chic Filet their sales go thru the roof!

      • Thomas Graham

        You’re right. I’m going to eat there for lunch and breakfast today.

  • Crystal Fletcher Pendergast

    You are a special kind of inflammatory stupid aren’t you??

    “I Back the Blue” does not equal “kill the black man” as you suggest. It means that men and women, white, black, mixed, Asian, Latino, Native, etc, deserve our support. NOT our support to kill ANYONE without just cause, but our support for putting their lives on the line to protect everyone, even those who would cause them harm.

    Keep trying to drive the country apart you asshat!

    • phil

      Then why is it that you never hear “all cancer matters” during a breast cancer walk?

      • mastedon2

        How completely stupid of a statement Phil…. Have you forgotten your meds today?>

        • Yeah it’s not a stupid question. It’s a valid one and just because it makes you uncomfortable or angry doesn’t make it an invalid thing to ask.

          • Dan Sainz

            Actually no it’s not it’s just trying to defuse the argument of others by insulting their beliefs

          • John Rainwater

            Saying cancer matters is the same as saying black lives matter? You’re an idiot.

        • Elizabeth Harvey

          Yup he has!

      • frank96740

        Are you REALLY this stupid or are you just ‘baiting’ honest people that care about something other than themselves?? Waiting…..

      • John “Kahless” Taylor

        When has cancer saved lives?

        • Jonathan Baker

          this is a question that actually could be picked apart… when it killed say a drug lord and his good organs where given to peeps, sadly the money people pay in chemo helps feed the working classes kids, and when Kirk got radiation in the second new film i thought it would have saved my life by not watching the next film, but they revived him with Kanns blood and thus STAR TREK BEYOND!!! to where no cops where harmed during the making or BLM protesters!!! (ps love the middle name!!)

          • John “Kahless” Taylor

            I suppose a drug lord getting cancer and their good organs being used to save lives could be an exception.

            I used my Kahless persona years ago on Classmates dot com and my cyber-buddies loved it. The constant Klingon arrogance was just delicious. And I could list many problems with Trek Into Darkness but we only have so many hours in a day. 🙂

      • Elizabeth Harvey

        You need to give it up!

    • Damn_you’re_dumb

      They don’t protect black people, they shoot at black people. There is no support or love for those subhumans. And dont hit me with the whole “well don’t call the cops when you need help” line either. I never have because I learned a long time ago they dont come to help black people.

      • Kelly Shearer

        You do realize more white people were shot by police last year than any other race, right?? But the media doesn’t talk about that because it doesn’t cause controversy and strife. People won’t get shot by police if they do what they are told and don’t talk back…it’s simple, more people aren’t shot by the police when stopped than those who are shot….

        • Elizabeth Harvey

          was there video, did they have their hands raised, were they put in a choke hold, were they running away, did the police say they were armed and it was later discovered the police lied? Kelly you’re a Racist! if you don’t think police mishandling of black people is wrong you are most definitely are part of the problem.

          • Jonathan Baker

            the only racists i know are the ones that point their fingers at others!!!

          • BaliHai84

            Nobody had their hands raised. Michael lBrown wasn’t killed because he was black. He robbed a store and rushed the police officer. If you do that, black or white, you will get shot. He was a thug and a dumb one.

        • rasil4u

          Excuse you me!! No one should be shot or brutalized bc a cop has a mission to execute. Go back to sleep.

        • heart of Dixie

          Blacks killed by blacks , 3600 last month ‘ I don’t blame cops , black or white , I wouldn’t want to go in any community where you out number by guns 15-1 to save some sorry Ass crack head’ just so he can hit the streets selling five mins later’ ……….

      • Dan Sainz

        You’re a racist piece of shit aren’t you?

      • Pam_L

        You are absolutely right. Police are nothing but hired goons that harass and kill black people, and they have never been anything more than that. To claim that hate-filled racists have any intention of “serving and protecting” the very objects of their hatred is nothing but deception.

        • John Rainwater

          You’re fucking stupid. Cops kill twice as many whites every year than blacks. Look it up. Try thinking for yourself instead of jumping on the bandwagon.

          • Elizabeth Harvey

            Duh! Because its more white people, Black people only make up 12% of the population!

          • BaliHai84

            THEY make up 13% of the population and commit 50% Of the crime.

          • You so dumb

            First off the don’t kill twice as many, and secondly more whites would get killed by cops because THEY’RE THE FUCKING MAJORITY.. stupid bastard

        • Elizabeth Harvey

          Absolutely Pam!

        • BaliHai84

          It’s a lie Pam. You are a Kool AId drinking media drone. Black people tearing up towns, looting, burning down businesses based on a lie . Michael BROwn was a thug. And a stupid one. If you rush a cop, black or white, you will be shot. GOod riddance. One more thug off the street.

      • John “Kahless” Taylor

        Strange, I’m black and have never had a problem with the police.

        • Pam_L

          Well since you’re a Klingon I’m sure that explains why.

          • John “Kahless” Taylor

            LoL! And I guess that Bird of Prey hovering behind me kind of put the officers off. 🙂

            Kahless: nuQ’neQ officer!
            Officer (looking terrified): Uh, nothing, I just wanted to say Hi.
            Kahless: I see you’re staring at my Bird of Prey!
            Officer: Is that what that is?
            Kahless: AND WHAT DO YOU EXPECT IT TO BE, PETAQ??!!
            Officer (backing away): Uh, nothing. Have a good day, uh, sir?
            Kahless: Humans!!

      • heart of Dixie

        you ever thought it’s not just white’ that’s shooting, it’s black as well ‘break the law deal with the Law;;;;; black or white , lets’ don’t forget 3600 blacks killed by other street blacks in one month alone ‘ Nuke their Ass. the whole state . no tears lost here.

        • You so dumb

          I am confident you have no real hispanic or latin blood in you because they are waking up too, realizing that even if their skin is light they’ll still get shot in the name of corruption. And if you believe that the shirt had nothing to do with police…

          Damn you’re dumb.

  • mastedon2

    With BLM protesters stating they want to kill all white babies??? Racist article by another racist black person looking for an excuse…

  • yikesarama

    “…t-shirts that support police brutality against Black citizens,…” Are you totally deranged? Blue Lives Matter supports the police in doing their job. Unfortunately, 14% of our population has become about 80% of their jobs: drug dealers, drug buyers, petty thefts, warrant searches, shootings, and murder. (Young black males are 40% of the murderers in this country– FBI, 2014.) Can you please keep two things in your head at once??? 1. Police who shoot anyone wrongly will be prosecuted. 2. Police need to be supported by us all. (BTW, the police in Ferguson and now in Baltimore have been exonerated.)

  • Jane Jessee

    BULL!!! why do black thugs matter and our police do not???? Get serious…when was the last time a black thug came to your rescue????

  • Julie

    Excuse me please…exactly WHERE on that shirt does it justify killing black people???? I even put on my glasses and can only make out that it supports NOT killing Police Officers. I don’t blame the author of this dribble for not signing his name to it. I’d be embarrassed if something this ignorant could be traced back to me too!

  • elhigh

    You ignorant tit. Did you do any research at all before copying and pasting this “news” item? http://www.snopes.com/chick-fil-a-just-dropped-a-bomb-on-black-lives-matter/

  • jksopinion

    93% of all black people killed, are killed by other black people, they commit more than half of all violent crimes, while only comprising 12% of the population. but ya, keep blaming cops for a culture that promotes theft, murder, objectification of women and illegitimate childbirth, and money being more important than integrity. Hey BLM fix Chicago, then we’ll talk….

    • Aerialla

      LOL your stats are all off, it’s sad yet very funny.

  • Kay Martin

    Whomever wrote this article is a predjudiced moron. Supporting the people who put their lives on the line everyday by wearing shirts that support their dangerous work has absolutely nothing to do with the drivel you posted here. Only thing for you to do at this point to salvage yourself is to humbly apologize to all police officers and to ChickFilA in particular for their gracious effort to supporr their community. They are one of the most thoughtful and decent companies around. God bless all of our law enforcement officers and all of the great people at ChickFilA.

    • Jennifer Charles

      Well said!

    • Ernie McDowell

      The shirts were in support of their local high school football team any way. This story is so stupid. SMFH

    • John “Kahless” Taylor

      I think the author just wanted to increase Chick-fil-A’s revenue…and it will.

  • Ernie McDowell

    This was years ago and the shirts were in support of a high school football team in that town…SMFH

  • Beverly Golato

    Because of the T shirts they are condoning killing black people???? Really, moron? How about they are against BLM killing cops or is that too deep for the moron who wrote this article.

  • John Rainwater

    Bullshit. BLM is about the 250 blacks that are killed every year by cops. Period. Armed unarmed doesn’t matter. What I want to know is what HURA (Hypocritical Uneducated Racist Assholes) thinks about the 4500 blacks killed by blacks every year. Seriously. Fill me in. You all don’t give a DAMN about those black lives. If you did you’d be in THOSE neighborhoods trying to help out the plight of the black man there instead of interfering with the daily lives of those of us who are sick and fucking tired of your shit. Twice as many whites were killed last year than blacks. Look it up. We aren’t burning down our cities because 500 whites were killed. And I will tell you why. We understand that the vast majority of them were fucking criminals, or they didn’t do what the police told them to do at a traffic stop. Let me tell you how it works. Blue and red lights WEE OO WEE OO WEE OO!!!! Stop the fucking car. Don’t try to out run the cops. You have to stop sometime. If the officer tells you to stay in the car, stay in the fucking car. If you DO get out of the fucking car like a dumbfuck because you don’t fucking listen, then when he tells you to get on the ground; get on the muthafuckin ground. If he tells you to put your hands up or behind your back…fucking do it. If you fail to do all of that and decide it is in your best interest to approach the officer, he or she will probably tell you to stop. You already have a gun pointed at your chest at this point. SMART people will take this as a sign of increase in the force continuum and will put their hands up and lay down face first in the dirt, on the asphalt, in a mud puddle or in a fucking ant mound because they realize they are about to get their dumbasses shot. But not these guys. They will do even more stupid shit like continue walking, charge the officer, reach in his pocket to make the cop THINK he has a gun or even pull out a muthafuckin gun. You stupid motherfuckers! You’re not a martyr. You’re a dead motherfucker and none of the smart people that get pulled over by the police for something and do what they are told by the officer don’t give a fuck about dead motherfuckers who don’t listen and get shot by police. So. If you want us to care about black lives, stop being fucking stupid, take responsibility for your actions, do what you are told and you just might make it back home to your kids. That is, if you manage not to get killed by another stupid motherfucker. Fuck you and good night.

    • Damn_you’re_dumb

      Proven on camera that the stupid shit you’re saying doesn’t work for black people because of ignorant prejudice backwoods hicks like yourself. Some of you put on uniforms and infect the rest of the force which lack the nuts to speak out against you hillbillies. You just heard about Charles Kinsey right? Probably not because of your selective redneck hearing, hard to pull info off that 19th century radio you got on your front porch. Pussy.

      • John Rainwater

        Hey dumbfuck. You didn’t read anything I wrote. More whites are killed by police officers that blacks. Go fuck yourself.

        • RaiseTheFair

          Hey dumber fuck– that’s only because you guys make up more of the population! HOW FUCKING EVER— BLACKS ONLY MAKE UP 13%, you WHITE-TINY-DICK CURSED MORON and the FACT OF THE MATTER IS WE ARE 3 times as likely to be shot while unarmed and we are shot MORE than Whites BECAUSE of our population! Stop with the pseudo argument, asshole! BLACKS GET SHOT MORE BASED OFF OF OUR POPULATION IN THIS COUNTRY AND THE RATE BY WHICH WE ARE BEING KILLED BY FUCKING POLICE!

          • Elizabeth Harvey

            Don’t waste your intelligence on these dumbass hicks!

          • BaliHai84

            Maybe if black men stayed with their families instead of father babies from 4 different “baby mommas”. Then they could teach their sons respect. Then those boys wouldn’t be joining gangs, then young black men wouldn’t be joining gangs at a higher rate than other communities. THEn they wouldn’t be commiting crimes. THEn they wouldn’t be getting shot. THE problem is with the culture. Black men abandon their families, and the boys go looking for male role models and find it in gangs. CLEAn up your own communities, instead of blaming white people for all your problems.

      • John “Kahless” Taylor

        So because some cops are bad, all cops are bad? This is your reasoning? I wonder what non-blacks think of blacks because of all the black-on-black crime happening?

        • John Rainwater

          Exactly. And saying that all cops are bad is like saying that every black guy is a drug dealing, car stealing, baby making no child support paying thug. They ignore the black on black. I have been told as much. I think that the exact words were, That’s not what BLM is about. Well of course not. “There is (a) class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. … ” Booker T. Washington. (Black man, btw…lol)

    • Sonnyboy Hamilton

      Your comment speaks volumes, everyone should read it. I would like your permission to post it on my Facebook page. I have two nephews that are police officers and their lives certainly matter to me.

      • John Rainwater

        Go for it.

        • RaiseTheFair

          You’re an idiot and those were irrational generalizations and assumptions because your feeble brain assumes to know what happens in the Black community your idiotic presence isn’t part of! It’s crakkas like you who make this discussion so difficult because you ignorant pricks want to be able to tell Black people how to feel, how to react and how to be based on your own dweeb-oriented misconceptions of Black life.

      • RaiseTheFair

        His comment is idiotic and based off of misconceptions and silly assumptions that he, himself believes to correspond within the Black community. You are talking about a community that makes up 13% of the population, has a median income of $11,000 compared to $141,000 for Whites, is 2x as likely to be unemployed, and makes up 40% of the prison population DESPITE being ONLY 13 FUCKING % of the population. Any asshole who doesn’t see institutionalized racism is an idiot who lacks common sense. Racism is prejudice plus power. Power is abused in social, political, legal, financial and economic systems! PERIOD, you fucks!

          13% OF THE POPULATION< DOING 60% of the crimes. It's not a black/white issue. It's a criminal issue. If you break the law, you will have an interaction with the police. If you "rush" an officer, or put your hand in your lap where your gun is, you will get shot. I take that back. It's a STUPID criminal issue. If you are stupid, you will get shot.

    • You so dumb

      You have no basis in fact. There are at least two videos up for your stupid ass to see, one being Philando Castile which you couldn’t justify with ANY of your white racist logic, and another who was shot at a gas station for complying with the officer’s commands. You also know by now of the caregiver of that autistic kid who got shot for nothing. This shit is not new. Its just being caught on videotape. You’re a pussy and a dirty one at that.

    Once again, working under a false pretense. I really wish the protesters (and the author) would do their research. That’s a photo from October 2015.

  • dougmeeks

    Just for discussion this whole thing is false, just Google it yourself and you will see. Nobody does their own research anymore and liars and scam artists have a field day. And we already have people here wanting to boycott Chick-fil-A, get a life or better yet find a brain to use.

    Actually, according to Snopes, the “back the blue” campaign was started by one Chick-Fil-A… To promote & support their local high school football team. The internet made up the stories about how it was to back the police (of course corporately, I’m sure they do, we’ve never actually heard them say it.

    Look it up folks.

  • Eron Lindsey
  • Zamara Moon

    The author need to do some fact checking before putting stuff like this out there. The shirts were in ONE store TO SUPPORT the LOCAL FOOTBALL TEAM mainly and LOCAL RESPONDERS. This was all BEFORE BLM was formed.

    How does supporting police equal hating black individuals and promoting police brutality against them?? The author of this is really a special kind of stupid.

  • I support chick-Fil-A

    • John “Kahless” Taylor

      Always have, always will.

  • Damn_you’re_dumb

    I’m not surprised. I don’t eat at these chains in the first place, I keep it local so I can spend my money with people who don’t harbor prejudice. Racist whites and possibly even all of them will forever try to maintain power in whatever way they can, and honestly can you blame them? I would wager that anyone with power wouldn’t want to give it up. If you are a brother or sister of mine, don’t shop with these racist whites. Don’t spend your money in their stores. I know it’s difficult but every penny counts. Open an account with a verifiably black-owned bank ASAP, to more closely align yourself with our upliftment. Black owned banks that are checked and balanced by the people they serve will be the best, and probably quickest way out of all this. A lot of black people ask what we can do, and its simple. The power is in the money. Spend ONLY with black people, and start today. Doing this will erode their economic base, and with it, any superiority complex that racist whites suffer from.

      You are the most racist person on this whole thread and yes dumbass Blacks can be racist too

  • Brenna Lowitz

    Where in the fuck does it say on that shirt that they support brutality of blacks? All I see is blue lives matter. It’s the same as saying if it said black lives matter that the shirt enforces killing cops. This author is ignorant.

  • Cherie

    On 14 July 2016, a representative for Chick-fil-A clarified to us that the shirts were never meant as a reference to police officers:

    During high school football season last year, one locally owned restaurant in Houston, Texas created t-shirts for the sole reason of supporting its local football team. However, when asked, the local manager also made a statement in support of the local first responders, as we have a history of honoring them for their public service. The shirts have nothing to do with the current national discussion. Chick-fil-A restaurants are committed to serving everyone delicious food while creating a welcoming environment for anyone who walks through our doors.

  • John “Kahless” Taylor

    I’m sorry but if you look at the number of lives saved (including black lives) vs. the number of lives taken by police officers, you will see that the amount of lives saved far far outweighs the amount lost. And in those cases of lives lost, over 90% of the time it was justified. This is all Chick-fil-A is saying, support the officers who save lives.

  • John “Kahless” Taylor

    As many have posted here, the T-Shirts were in support of a local football team, but they also support first responders. Will you print a retraction?

    • S. D.

      No, they won’t, because it doesn’t support the agenda and it would mean they would have to accept responsibility for their actions, and admit they were wrong. ..not gonna happen.

      • John “Kahless” Taylor

        Yeah, I know, but wanted to put that out there anyway.

  • Pressto

    So in this authors mind anyone who backs the police is bad. Guess what I don’t think Chick-fil-A is going to miss your business or anyone else like you.

  • Rory Anderson

    Going out for some waffle fries tomorrow!

  • cpbcop

    I was a Kentucky Fried Chicken guy up until now. The filet place was across town and not worth the drive just for a chicken sandwich. That has now changed. Sorry colonel.

  • Oceanwalk8305

    Well, at least I won’t have to worry about running into the author at Chik. Sounds like an obnoxious person.

  • Moose68

    I’ll take a dozen shirts, Diet Coke, and a grilled chicken sandwich to go. BLM members should be in prison with Hillary.

  • S. D.

    What an idiot. Just because Chick-fil-A supports police, that AUTOMATICALLY means they’re anti black people, or BLM….? Even if that were true, you are ASSuming that!

    I’m gonna stay eating there twice as much! They don’t need losers like you dirtying up the place anyway. Bye, Felicia!

  • Malissa McKay Arnold

    You know this is fake, right? The “Blue” was a local sports team they sponsored, and this picture is a few years old. it has nothing to do with the police

  • Michelle Potter

    I support Black Lives Matter, but you might want to be aware that this t-shirt controversy is completely made up. These shirts are actually from last year, and were made by some high school aged employees to support a local high school football team here in Texas. Just down the road from me, in fact. When they were originally misinterpreted, the manager of that location said that they also support police – but it had absolutely nothing to do with Black Lives Matter or Police Lives Matter, or any of that, considering that the whole thing happened a year before the Dallas shootings.

    Fine, the author is not going to eat there. His decision will have zero impact. As we often say, it’s a free country.

  • RoscoeRussell Robinson

    When someone is breaking into your house who will call? BLM???

  • Eric

    Whether you support Black Lives Matter or Blue Lives Matter…This is a ploy to boost their sales…Just like when they spoke out about the gay and lesbian community and cleaned it up by saying that the reason they are closed on Sunday’s because of their deep Christian beliefs…The CEO was recorded in a corporate meeting after the Dallas police shooting stating that he would use that incident to help boost the sales again. That if he went against the Black Live Matter movement that will increase their sales.

    So for Chik-Fil-A to be this great Christian company with Christian values why would they choose to anger one group over another when the BIBLE says love is the most powerful weapon…But the CEO new that by making a move like we support blue lives would bring out the most racist American in support of Chik-Fil-A and by going against Black Lives Matter will have the dumbest racist coming in their store to buy those chicken sandwiches. Not once did they say that the profits from this promotion are going to the families of those cops who lost their life in the line of duty. So now who are you really supporting or did the CEO call it right that every dumb redneck would rush to get that chicken sandwich because we are going against black Americans

    And to all those who say what about the 4500 blacks that are not killed by cops do their live Matter …I say yes…when you live in a community of blacks that is who you are most likely o have problems with…Just like when you live in a community of whites you will have a high number of white on white crime and so on with any other culture in America …but the one thing that makes them different is which one gets the most publicity…Pay attention to your news stations when a white person kills another their race is never brought up or the area in which they live in…but when their is black on black crime their race and the area that they live in is broadcast multiple times in your news media.

    Black Lives Matter is a group that cares about the injustice to anyone living in their communities not only by cops but black on black crimes as well.

  • Rodney E Overby

    This might be the dumbest thing i have ever read. So if i say BLM is stupid idea and that no lives matter i guess that means i endorse murdering black people? Stay in school stupid!!

  • Me

    if black lives matter why are the not helping those in La. right now with all the flooding?

  • john dillngerr

    this article is so lame

  • Mark Davis

    Well I was trying to decide what to have for lunch today. Thank you for making that decision for me. Chik-fil-A it is.

  • Popi Massey

    We need to stop the division. Period. The police officers in my neighborhood have protected me and my Black family more times than I can count. And I’m sure this is the case in many neighborhoods. Just as #BLM doesn’t mean police lives don’t matter, supporting police (who by the way come in ALL colors) doesn’t mean they don’t value Black lives. We need to take care of each racist (black or white) one at a time, starting with ourselves because the possibility of discriminating against someone because of the color of their skin sadly can exist in any of us. If we really want to make a difference, let’s start building our own companies and businesses and promote change from within. God is ultimately the one who has our backs anyway. …#unitedwestand
