Papa John Founder Drops ‘N-Word’ in Talk About National Anthem Protests, Immediately Regrets It

Published

on

John Schnatter, founder and face of Papa John’s pizza has officially resigned from the company as of Wednesday after controversial remarks he made during a conference call over the NFL national anthem protests.

Schnatter was on the phone with fellow Papa John’s executives and a marketing company called Laundry Services. The reason for the call was to role-play certain situations to help Schnatter avoid public-relations issues. Ironically, this conversation actually produced the very thing it was supposed to prevent.

During the call, the marketing group asked how Schnatter planned on distancing himself from racist online groups. “Colonel Sanders called blacks n*****s,” he responded, adding that Sanders didn’t face backlash from the public.

“Schnatter also reflected on his early life in Indiana, where, he said, people used to drag African-Americans from trucks until they died,” says the Forbes report. The comments were “intended” to express Schnatter’s “antipathy to racism” but, according to a source familiar with the matter, some on the call were offended by the remarks.

Laundry Service soon terminated its contract with Papa John’s.

“News reports attributing the use of inappropriate and hurtful language to me during a media training session regarding race are true,” wrote Schnatter in an email to Forbes. “Regardless of the context, I apologize. Simply stated, racism has no place in our society.”

“Papa John’s condemns racism and any insensitive language, no matter the situation or setting. Our company was built on a foundation of mutual respect and acceptance. One of our core company values is People Are Priority Always (P.A.P.A.) and we are committed to maintaining a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace for all of our corporate and franchise employees,” says the statement, according to Fox News.

The ‘N-word’ is absolutely a disgusting derogatory word that should not, in any way, shape, or form, be used by ANYONE, especially given that the Word of God commands us to love our neighbor and treat them with respect.

Calling them derogatory names like this one is actually a violation of the Sixth Commandment, because in a spiritual sense, it murders a person’s soul, making them feel less than the image bearer of God they are. It’s deplorable and shouldn’t be used.

However, in this case, it seems everything has been blown out of proportion. It doesn’t appear, and this might be wrong, that he was intending to use an actual racial slur, but trying to poorly illustrate a point. Then again, maybe he is racist, we can’t know the intent of his heart.

Regardless, there seems like more to this than what we’re hearing. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see if any more information becomes available.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
