President Donal Trump calls for a boycott against Goodyear Tires after they banned all "blue lives matter" "all lives matter' and "MAGA" attire in all of their stores.
In the company's diversity training program, the policy stated any pro-police and pro-Trump slogans should be banned from company stores. A list of “acceptable” expressions in the workplace included any “Black Lives Matter (BLM),” or “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT)” messaging.
An anonymous employee leaked the training slide from Topeka, Kansas.
Goodyear released a statement Wednesday, denying that corporate headquarters created or distributed the slide as part of a diversity training program.
According to WBTV
A Goodyear employee said the company has put out a new policy that has some calling it not equal for all.
A photo seen circulating on social media shows a slide that was presented during a diversity training showing what’s acceptable and what isn’t acceptable as part of Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co.‘s zero-tolerance policy.
Under acceptable: Black Lives Matter (BLM), Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride.
Listed as unacceptable: Blue Lives Matter, All Lives Matter, MAGA Attire, Political Affiliated Slogans or Material.
According to the employee who took the photo of the slide, it was presented at the Topeka plant by an area manager and said the slide came from its corporate office in Akron, Ohio.
“If someone wants to wear a BLM shirt in here, then cool. I’m not going to get offended about it. But at the same time, if someone’s not going to be able to wear something that is politically based, even in the farthest stretch of the imagination, that’s discriminatory,” said an employee, under the agreement of anonymity due to fears they could lose their job. “If we’re talking about equality, then it needs to be equality. If not, it’s discrimination.”
