Number 4 Bigot of the Year Award 2011: Corporate America

29 Dec

Number 4 Bigot of 2011

Corporate America received more than two dozen nominations from TSM readers as Bigot of the Year. 2011 was a particularly nasty and ugly year to witness how corporations are willing to discriminate based on gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, and gender conformity.  Here were some of the top offenders of 2010: Target and its significant donation to key anti-gay politicians that profit from being homophobic and anti-woman; Gold’s Gym funding the misogynistic and homophobic Karl Rove; Walmart holding such enormous political clout as a corporation that even the United States Supreme Court refused to heard the collective voices of millions of women who faced and continue to face discrimination; and of course Lowe’s which helps to perpetuate the vile myth that Muslims should be feared and can’t be trusted.  Yes, these are just a few of the corporations that are lumped together as a cancerous mass that have earned the dubious honor of the number 4 Bigot of the Year Award.
