The founder of Papa John's, John Schnatter, reportedly used the N-word during a conference call in May, according to Forbes. A spokesperson for Papa John's said the company "condemns racism and any insensitive language, no matter the situation or setting."
Odd world... he gets fired for using the "N" word and just about every form of entertainment with black people and all they say is the "N" word... Very odd world.. Don't use the "N" word and don't associate with people that do... Black people are so angry with Americans but then they do something like that and go around saying the "N" word left and right knowing it is 100% not acceptable...
It doesn't matter how you explain the situation, people have a one-track mind the moment they hear about these things. Nobody is willing to hear his side of the story, and if they do they still stick to their original statements. I'm not condoning the use of that word, but you need to at least view all sides and stop saying it's okay in one instance and not okay in another.
I don't know any of you, and I don't know Mr. Schnatter. That being said, I am willing to hear his side of the story. For all of you saying he deserves all the hate and backlash, sorry to break it to you...that makes you just as bad as you're perceiving him to be. Whoever here is without sin..... please cast the first stone.
People need to learn to extend grace and forgiveness to others, even when we don't think they deserve it. We're all sinners here and imperfect human beings. All I ask is that you think about that the next time you make a mistake. I willing to bet you'll expect forgiveness and understanding. This world needs Jesus rather than pushing him aside.
“Regardless of the context (of the n-word), racism has no place in our society” that is such a bad statement to make, if people can use the word without proper context i would understand but denying that we should use the word under any context whatsoever is not functional to society and will just turn everyone into soft shelled morons. Im not saying we should use this word out of our asses i just think it should be ok to quote someone else ei: colonel sanders or a book without people getting upset. I think context is very important these days and the fact that john here is getting shot down for using the word in the context of colonel sanders saying it is not fair, i do think he shouldn’t have said the word if he could have done it again but i also think that other society should be more forgiving and give papa johns a n-word pass.
The thing is he never called anyone that!!! He just simply used it in a sentence. If its not ok for him to say it. It shouldn't be ok for anyone to use it but I can walk down the street and hear black people calling each other that all the time!!! That is just flat out fucking ridiculous!!!
Does ANYONE have a link to the conference call or the apology? All of these videos are of news reporters stating what was said and not videos of him. For example, try to get a Donald Trump interview. It actually takes some time because videos appear that show what other people say about him instead. Anyway, I believe he said it, which sucks.
He's white, male and conservative. No context is acceptable. No apology will be accepted. He must be completely destroyed according to the left. Is this really about the use of the word on a conference call? I think not. His comments about Obama care and then the NFL were the real reason, the last issue was just the excuse.
AGAIN ANOTHER REASON WHY THAT NO MATTER HOW YOU SPELL IT THE N-WORD SHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN REVIVED AS PART OF ANY SOCIETY!
WHITES SAY IT BECAUSE BLACKS ALLOWED THEM TO..
IT MAKES THEM FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE LEVERAGE OVER BLACK SOCIETY!!!
YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW TO STOP WHITE RACISM ?
STOP EMPOWERING THEM !!!
FINANCIALLY & SOCIALLY!!
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO REASON TO LISTEN TO NOR ACKNOWLEDGE ANYTHING A WHITE HAVE TO SAY AFTER THEY USE THE N-WORD!!!
STOP WHITES & RACSIM BY WHITES :
(1). BLACK & BROWN SOCIETY UNITE- AFRICANS, BLACK AMERICANS, MEXICANS, LATINOS, HISPANICS , DOMINICIANS, PUERTO RICANS.......
(2). DO NOT SPEND MONEY WITH THEM
(3). BUY FROM ONLY BLACK & BROWN BUSINESSES!
(4). STOP WHITES FINANCIALLY & SOCIALLY
Pappa John's apology letter. My niggas. My peeps in the house. The bitch set me up. I still have my fly Camaro for the skeezies. And I am billionaire. If you use N word at Papa John's you get $5 off any large pizza. Pizza out.
The press loves the chaos theory!!stop feeding it people!! We all humans and in every race we discriminate our own kind!! It's our nature! If you like to mix your race go ahead and do it! Build your own community!! If you wanna keep your race as one then do it!!
She's a nagger. Do this. Do that. Yes'ms. ... well, that's it. I'm having me an affair. Meet wife number 2. Wanna go for 3? .. Oddly enough, it was Sarah's idea for Abraham to go after wife number 2, Hagar, for in her old age, she had no desire to "have sex" with him, for 'it had seized to be with Sarah after the manner of women'. ..
See, gen 18 : 11-12, kjv. But conception had been promised her who was already married to Abraham, and so the Lord visited her, in a manner not unlike when He visited the Virgin Mary : see, gen 21 : 1-2, kjv. That is why Isaac is called a child of promise, and Ishmael a child of flesh. And why one should not confuse correlation with causality. Is she with child because she "had sex" or because....
So whites (some) started calling blacks "Nigger" , most blacks accepted it and now call themselves this word but yet wants to get mad when a white person says the word now. You accepted and now use it in everyday vocab, you call your friends, family and self a disrespectful word from a white man now all of a sudden you get mad cause they say it now. Please get some sense, a brain, and a life. I haven't ever used this word and won't ever use it. Nobody should use it period. Not just whites
He’s had a target in his back for a long time. Par for the course. Liberals claim another scalp. Can we please split this country in two already? This is getting old. So he said nigger. Blacks say it every other word when they jive with each other.
It's like that Meet the Parents episode where Ben Stiller is on the plane and says it's not like I have a bomb. sorry you can't say that word on the plane sir! but I said it's not like I have a bomb I don't have a bomb! Proceeds to get arrested.
It is so horrible that people used to call black people n1gg3rs! Omg i should be fired and shamed from society!
Haha that's for not hiring me papa racism piece of shits ,ur pizza is racist ,,what happened when ur hiring manager said ur not because I was Mexican ,in San Antonio TX these papa John pizza places are racist because they said they couldn't hire me as a driver because I was Mex,,what goes around comes around
No apology required or needed. Our society is far too "politically correct", I have never frequented Papa John's , but I will now. Good for John, calling a spade a spade. When Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and black Nationalist Louis Farrakhan apologize for slandering whites I will gladly share a 12piece and a gallon of Kool-Aid with then. Until then it's Papa Johns for all!
Papa John is innocent! He was quoting someone, and later referred to blacks as African-Americans! Everyone is getting so offended for no reason! It’s just Papa. The pizza is still good and Papa is an icon! Now Papa isn’t in the house anymore. Papa John’s can’t be Papa John’s without Papa John
the crybaby society.the new generation of name calling.You hurt my feelings.blacks calling blacks the N word is okay ?Your answer would be ."we do not use it in the same way"well the definition says different since we changed it in the dictionary.Stop degrading each other with it and maybe others will respect the word as it should be respected.
He apologized for quoting another person and said how "racism has no place in our society" (which he is right about). This language policing is going so far that you can't quote racist people in a negative context. Anyone offended by this really needs to rethink quite a bit of their lives. In the meantime, I'm getting Papa John's for dinner solely because of this.
[To Papa] "How would you distance yourself from racist groups online?"
[Papa] "Well Col. Sanders called blacks nigg---, but he never recieved any public backlash."
Not sure what point he was trying to make here. Anyone know?
So far I'm leaning 'yeah fuck that cunt'
P.s. *SHOUT OUT TO THIS CHANNEL FOR HAVING A DIRECT QUOTE* it took me forever to finally track it down, many thanks
It doesn't matter. The fascist Left have control over speech. But Schnatter did the right thing and bowed out making his company non-political. However, this is one more reason to vote against Democrats this November.
This is the most stupid story BY FAR !!
The guy was CONDEMNING RACISM - so he was fired for using the word IN CONTEXT to condemn racism! SJWs are fucking RETARDED! In fact that's an insult to retards... SJWs have degenerated into sacks of sh*t with impulses to anything that offends them.
I dont care about this Dude or his Pizza... when Blacks call each other the so called N word day in day out 24/7 on the street at the Gym in songs and media the whole story and reaction seems to me hypocritical to say the least......Blacks need to understand they dont help eliminating the N word from peoples vocabulary when they call each other by that name all the time....
My mom is a teacher at a high school and I hear the n-Word thrown around by all races of teenagers like it’s nothing. You hear Young Jeezy on the radio with his song my nigge , and Lil Wayne making it seem like it’s a way to greet your friend . Nowadays things are different and I’m not trying to defend this guy but when a white dude with money says that word game over .
