Like countless other American companies and institutions, PetSmart has now bent the knee to the fact-free Black Lives Matter movement, cult and religion.
In an open letter that went viral this week though it was published last week, PetSmart CEO J.K. Symancyk not only apologized to the world for being white but also incorrectly asserted that white people are incapable of facing race-based discrimination, hatred and fear.

“I believe in standing up for what is right, but I recognize that my experience as a white male makes me ill equipped to know what it’s like to face discrimination, hatred or even fear for my life based solely on the color of my skin,” he wrote.
Apparently, he’s never heard of Kori Ali Muhammad, a convicted felon who faces life in prison without parole for purposefully killing four white men during a 2017 mass shooting in California.

“This is a pivotal moment in our country. It is a time to come together in support of basic human and civil rights and to love one another unconditionally. That belief in unconditional love is at the heart of our culture at PetSmart and is supported by our value of being United Together,” Symancyk’s letter continued.
“Through this value we promote belonging and inclusiveness where individuals with diverse backgrounds and talents can excel, and we know that by working together we can accomplish great things.”
While other BLM cultists have also claimed to be promoting “belonging and inclusiveness,” their behavior hasn’t matched their words.
For instance, corporations have been firing employees simply for being critical of BLM and arguing that all lives should matter. If these corporations really believed in “belonging and inclusiveness,” they’d extend the same tolerance to diverse viewpoints.
In PetSmart’s case, this corporation seems to only care about “belonging and inclusiveness” as it pertains to blacks.
“But we can – and must – do better. In this moment it isn’t enough to say that we value diversity or to speak about inclusion in general terms. Now is the time to be clear in words and actions…to say plainly that Black Lives Matter and to do our part to ensure that this is the truth, not just a phrase,” Symancyk’s statement continued.
PetSmart intends to do its part by blessing its black employees with special perks and privileges, including an “annual scholarship/tuition aid” program.
While Symancyk’s statement fits the current BLM-focused political climate to a T, objectively speaking it’s extraordinarily bigoted and uninclusive, because the world contains more than just blacks — it also contains whites, Hispanics, Asians, etc.
And so how is it fair for PetSmart to advantage one race over all others? The company’s social media critics would certainly like to know (*Language warning):
What about the Asians? Where is our apology? #choppedliver

Why are you setting up scholarships ONLY for employees who are not white. There are poor white people and rich people who are black, brown and every other shade. YOU ARE RACIST. There is a lawsuit here.

So inclusive to you means only one color can succeed? Scholarship should be based on merit not skin. Bye bye bitches. No longer shopping there

so my white daughter who is a hard worker, is not eligible for these scholarships? they are entirely based on race? isn’t that racist?

To @PetSmart Offering scholarships to one group based on race is racist and illegal. I hope your white and brown employees sue the shit out of you. I’ll buy my cat food/supplies elsewhere.

“Establishment of annual scholarship/tuition aid for black associates and their families”
So Black employees get scholarships and tuition assistance but the Asians, Hispanics and Caucasians are SOL??
Good to know. pic.twitter.com/65RNaQdK4W

The argument could be made that the BLM movement itself is racist, since it hinges on the incorrect assumption that every white person is guilty of racism. But isn’t using race to judge all members of a particular racial group the very definition of racism?
Plus, BLM’s goals all revolve around propping up blacks at the expense of everybody else, including Asians, who’ve paid a hefty price because of affirmative action policies.
Were equality, “belonging” and “inclusiveness” truly the goals, nobody would be granted special perks and advantages, and everybody would play by the same rules.
Alas, much like the rest of the brainwashed world, PetSmart has adopted an “Animal Farm”-like worldview that says all people are equal, but some people are more equal than others.
