3 Business Owners That Have Profited After Racist Comments Exposed

1.

Owner Jan Morgan of The Gun Cave Indoor Firing Range in Heber Springs, Arkansas made national headlines after confronting 2 Indian descent, Hindu men and informing them, “ this is a Muslim-free gun range and if you are then please leave.”

The rightfully insulted men took to twitter to express their displeasure with Morgan’s misjudgment and discrimination, stating, “My dad and I just got kicked out of a Muslim-free gun range … I’m not Muslim, I’m just brown.”

Well one would think that Morgan’s exposed discriminative “policy” would negatively impact her business, but according to her, just the opposite has taken place. Since the controversy, Morgan claims that her business has “quadrupled” with supporters coming from all over the country to support her decision and business. People have even made donations in case Morgan faces legal ramification for discrimination.

Donald Sterling—ex-owner of professional basketball team LA Clippers, was heard on audio making racist comments to his girlfriend at the time, V Stiviano.

“Why are you taking pictures with minorities?” Sterling asked. Obviously confused, Stiviano reminded him that she was bi-racial. Bizarrely, Sterling responded, “You told me that you were going to remove those.” What are “those”, you ask? Well Stiviano retorted, “You’re asking me to remove something that’s part of me and in my blood stream.”

Sterling explained that his discomfort with Stiviano’s public interactions with black people is essentially that in his “culture,” black people aren’t accepted are viewed as equal.

Nevertheless, after Sterling’s hidden racism was exposed, he eventually sold the LA Clippers for a whopping $2 billion dollars when the team was only worth roughly $700 million. Pretty good pay out for someone living in a racist “culture.”

Revlon Italian CEO Lorenzo Delpani was accused of being racist and discriminative by the company’s previous chief scientific officer Alan Meyers. According to Meyers, Delpani have “referred to Americans as ‘small-minded’ and ‘dirty,'” and “following a meeting in South Africa, said he ‘could smell a black person when he entered a room.'”

Meyers has an ongoing lawsuit filed against Delpani for allegedly firing him raising concerns about Revlon’s Spanish beauty care company Colomer Group using materials that “did not satisfy regulatory and safety requirements, and that its laboratories did not meet Revlon’s standards.”

After the allegations were made public, neither Revlon’s revenues nor investors were fazed as a result. As a matter of fact, the company’s 2015 predicted revenues haven’t been compromised by the controversy at all and are expected to exceed 2014’s annual profit of $500 million.
