My husband and I stopped shopping at Lowe’s when we learned they scored a 15 out of 100 on the HRC consumer guide of LGBT friendly stores. Now, with their recent endorsement of Islamophobia, I hope everyone will boycott Lowe’s Home Improvement Store. Lowe’s had been one of the sponsors for the television show “All American Muslim,” but they withdrew their sponsorship after caving into right wing hate groups like The Florida Family Association, which referred to the TLC show as:
propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda’s clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values.
How bigoted do you have to be to continue to target a marginalized population? Am I the only one that is exceedingly tired of Americans vilifying Muslim Americans? How ironic that most acts of terrorism in the United States have been perpetrated by white heterosexual men such as: Timothy McVeigh, Ted Kaczynski, and Scott Roeder of Operation Rescue. It seems to me that we need to be much more afraid of white heterosexual men than we do of Muslims.
Shame on Lowe’s and other corporate giants that contribute to marginalization of Muslims, women, or the LGBT community. I hope people will boycott Lowe’s.
