On Monday while sitting down with Christian rapper Lecrae and Pastor Louie Giglio, Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy said that white people need to repent for their racism as he defended the rioters and looters who have been destroying our country in recent weeks.
“We as caucasians, until we’re willing to just pick up the baton and fight for our black, African-American brothers and sisters, which they are as one human race, we’re shameful,” Cathy said. “We’re just adding to it.”
“Our silence is so huge at this time,” he added. “We cannot be silent. Somebody has to fight and God has so blessed our city, but it’s shameful how we let things get so out of whack.”
Cathy went on to say that white Christians need to have a “sense of shame” and an “apologetic heart” as he polished LeCrae’s shoes.
“Any expressions of a contrite heart, of a sense of humility, a sense of shame, a sense of embarrassment … an apologetic heart,” he said, “I think that’s what our world needs to hear today.”

The outlandish comments didn’t stop there. During the same interview, Cathy defended the rioters who burnt down the Wendy’s restaurant in Atlanta, saying that black people have “incredible amounts of frustration and pain” that “white people” are “simply just out-of-sight, out-of-mind oblivious to.”
“I think, before we try to jump into action, I would say that we need a period of contrition and a broken heart in the city of Atlanta,” said Cathy. “And a sense of real identity, not just criticizing people that are burning down that restaurant last night. We’ve got a heart for the Rayshard Brooks and others that you’ve (Lecrae) mentioned, we’ve gotta have a sense of empathy of what led to this. This is a tip of the iceberg of incredible amounts of frustration and pain that the whole spectrum of the African American community [is feeling] … that most of us white people are simply just out-of-sight, out-of-mind oblivious to. We cannot let this moment pass.”
Cathy then admitted that “a dozen Chick-fil-A restaurants have been vandalized in the last week,” but instead turned the attention on white people and urged them to feel the “pain” of the rioters.
Cathy appears to be finally bending the knee to the far-left mob. Back in 2019, Chick-fil-A said they would no longer be donating to organizations that were seen as “anti-LGBT” by the far-Left mob.
Check out what The Daily Wire reported:
In an interview with Bisnow, Chick-fil-A President and Chief Operating Officer Tim Tassopoulos announced that the famous fried chicken chain plans to make significant changes in which charities it donates to, in part because “as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are.” Amid continued boycotts of the highly popular and successful chain over its donations to supposed “anti-LGBT” groups and causes, Tassopoulos revealed that the company’s foundation will no longer donate to some high-profile Christian organizations.
