Dear Unilever officers,
I am disappointed that Unilever spends customer money to buy Dove and Knorr advertising on The ReidOut show. The ReidOut’s host, sit in hosts and some contributors practice anti-white labeling that is offensive, racist and likely inspires hate among some viewers of this show. Some examples of the daily instances of racism on Joy Reid’s show follow.
Joy Reid promoted the book “White Too Long” on her July 28, 2022 episode with the author Robert P. Jones telling her audience that “white (emphasized) Christian Nationalism is what the threat is before us.”
Joy Reid promoted the film “The Big Pay Back” on June 17, 2022 which she is co-executive producer of that pushes reparations that according to the film director is "for discrimination even still today because of the color of our skin."
On the April 25, 2022 episode of The ReidOut Reid’s guest Anand Giridharadas called Elon Musk and all white Twitter users racists and Joy Reid lashed out that at all white Twitter users on the right are racists.
Joy Reid had Anthea Butler, a professor of religion and the chair of the University of Pennsylvania Department of Religious Studies, on the May 9, 2022 episode of The ReidOut to promote her racist book titled “White Evangelical Racism.” Butler falsely claims that racism, not faith or position on many social issues, is the common denominator that binds all Christian conservatives together.
I am certain that Unilever would not support with its advertising dollars a white talk show host or white contributors making such false and offensive statements about black people. So will Unilever continue to advertise on Reid's show given its racist content?
Unilever certainly has the right to advertise on whatever shows it chooses. Likewise, I have the same right to voice my concern and not patronize companies that support racist, anti-white program content.
