We now live in a nation that rewards whining, and malcontents. We live in a nation where people are afraid to stand up to those that make nuisances of themselves. This must stop, and it must stop now because if Asparagus can cause accusations of RAAAAACISM……
A dried-out batch of asparagus has touched off a debate about racial discrimination, grocery stores and the role of citizen-led commissions.
It started in May when resident David Olander was perusing the produce section of the University City Schnucks. He noticed the asparagus weren’t resting in a tray of water.
“It was just sitting there dried out,” said Olander,a member of the city’s human relations commission.
Human relations commission? That is the first alarm for me. People who think up things like a human relations commission are, likely, not too bright, way too impressed with their own importance, and generally a gigantic pain in the ass. Besides wouldn’t the Department of Social Justice for Dried Out Asparagus be better able to handle this calamity?
Olander summoned an assistant manager, and then he asked the question: Did the quality of the asparagus have any relationship to the store’s location in a black neighborhood?
Because dry-asparagus = RAAAAACISM! Seriously, this clown takes himself way too seriously. What this was is a case of whoever was in charge of the produce section not paying attention. How should such an issue be addressed? Find out who is working, show them what is wrong, have them correct it. But placating this whiner? No, it is time we all stood up against these bullies. Sure you might lose his business, but most business owners would consider that a blessing. I mean who wants Mr. Limp Asparagus snooping around your store finding imagined incidents of RAAAAACISM? I mean what would overly ripe bananas, or soft tomatoes be a sign of? That’s right RAAAAACISM! Instead, the grocery chain went wimpy.
Olander’s experience prompted him to write a letter to Schnucks CEO Scott Schnuck, and out of that came a meeting with Schnucks employees.
But the letter and meeting were tinged with allegations that the St. Louis area’s largest grocery chain was discriminating against minority communities — accusations that Schnucks vehemently denies. […]
Why encourage this buffoon? The CEO should have take the letter and threw it in the first waste basket he could find, but instead, this somehow led to a meeting with employees. Good Freaking Grief! What is this country coming to?
