Target's brass dodge shareholder queries on company transgender policy

But they equate people who object to it with the "nigger haters" back in the 'Sixties


Target is allowing transgenders to use the bathroom or changing room of the gender in which they say they identify. Several groups,including the American Family Association, have raised concerns about privacy and security, the idea being that a sexual predator may take advantage of the policy.

Like AFA public policy analyst Abraham Hamilton III, Justin Danhof of the National Center for Public Policy Research traveled to the Target shareholders meeting in Southern California this week to pose questions to Target CEO Brian Cornell.

"On CNBC in May, he compared what they're doing with bathrooms to the company's using of black models in the 1960s, stating that essentially that wasn't very popular at the time either," Danhof explains.

"So the first pointed question I asked him was this: Do you think that those who oppose your bathroom policy are bigots? You essentially made that comparison. You compared them to racists from the 60s."

Danhof says he didn't get an answer, but instead got what he describes as "empty platitudes about diversity and inclusion."
