Minnesota Mom Shows Target She Rejects Inequality

Much has been in the news over the past month about the Target Corporation, and its donation of $150,000 to the political campaign of anti-gay Minnesotan... Tom Emmer... who is the Republican candidate for Governor of Minnesota.

Shown below is a video that really appeals to me.  I think that when some people see talk about all of these boycotting activities that can go on across the country in favor of equal rights, the first thing that many of them think of is some large LBGT organization like HRC... the Human Rights Campaign... and others... and perhaps from that mental image they come away with ideas of a noisy, raucous rally... even if it IS in support of equal rights.

Here is a video by a really wonderful woman... who made an excellent protest, all by herself, at her local Target.  When I viewed this video, I just felt so good inside... just to see that someone... in this case a very out-of-the-ordinary "ordinary woman..." would do something like this, with the care and grace that she showed, and then put it up on YouTube for all to see.

Take a look.

Unfortunately, I don't believe that Target was opposing gay rights when they backed their candidate. From my understanding they were backing a candidate that had their business interests at heart. I'm glad that the woman stood up for her beliefs, unfortunately, it wasn't a gay rights political move that Target was thinking about. It was a monetary and business aspect of candidates decisions. Make sense? My brother works for Target and from what I know they have backed gay rights in other ways in the past.

Anna:  That was one of the things that I really loved most about this video... that this Mom... would do this, and do it in the manner she did.  So many times using a feather can have much more of an effect than using a baseball bat.

Posted by Karen Anne Stone, Fort Worth Real Estate (New Home Hunters of Fort Worth and Tarrant County) about 8 years ago

Joan:  Ordinary people.  Just THINK how many "ordinary people" are out "there"... who actually could make such a difference if, in the middle of their "ordinarily special" lives, they stood up for what they thought was right.

Posted by Karen Anne Stone, Fort Worth Real Estate (New Home Hunters of Fort Worth and Tarrant County) about 8 years ago

 

Sally:  Sometimes we just do "say it."  Maybe even only to ourselves.  I wonder if this woman ever did anything like this before.  Regardless, it takes a great degree of spunk to speak your mind... and I am glad she did.

Posted by Karen Anne Stone, Fort Worth Real Estate (New Home Hunters of Fort Worth and Tarrant County) about 8 years ago

Lindsey:  If anyone so far knows the real situation here, that would be YOU.  I know you live right in the middle of it.  Perhaps if Target had made it more known what the real purpose of what they were doing... was simply looking out for their "business interests"... and just how and why they made that decision, then this controversy would not have become so "mainstream."

Or... even IF Target had made this contribution, and maintained their position in backing Mr Emmers... perhaps if they had stated publicly and very loudly why they were doing it... and also that, even though they were backing Emmers from a business standpoint... that they, Target, were NOT in favor of any of the anti-gay stands and viewpoints that Mr Emmers espouses... then things might have been different.

To agree with someone, and his candidacy, does NOT have to mean that you agree with everything he stands for.  Perhaps if Target had been more vocal about THEIR backing of equal rights for all... they could have supported Emmers regarding what they felt was in their best "business interests"... yet at the same time perhaps they could have influenced his anti-equality views as far as gays are concerned.

Again... I value your viewpoint.  I know you live very, very close to Minneapolis-St Paul... and probably see this on the news every day.  Thank you so much for sharing your views.  By the way... what a cute profile picture... <smile>

Karen Anne, I have to give her credit for the courage of her convictions. Usually the store employees and managers though have nothing to do with corporate donations to candidates but the principle of her convictions is very admirable. I think if she could organize a massive boycott, that might make a dent. But the YouTube video can't hurt either. Thanks for finding this.

Posted by Gary Woltal, Assoc. Broker Realtor SFR Dallas Ft. Worth (Keller Williams Realty) about 8 years ago

Gary:  I believe there already IS a boycott going on.  And, as Lindsey alluded to in her comment # 4... sometimes that can hurt many employees unintentionally.  In this case... especially up in Minnesota... a state with very much of it's own "personality"... (in some ways, I almost think Minnesota is in a different country... and I mean that in a good way)... the Minnesotans really need to "do it their way."  Personally, I think this woman has it right.

Posted by Karen Anne Stone, Fort Worth Real Estate (New Home Hunters of Fort Worth and Tarrant County) about 8 years ago

Karen - I do realize that every person has to make a choice as to their 'final line' when choosing candidates. And, you are right that Target could have made it more apparent that they were making a business decision and not an equal rights decision.

I haven't honestly listened much to it on the news. I kind of turn the station. :) With having family working for the company I have heard what I need to know.

I DO applaud the woman for standing up for what she believes. That is something that many would "talk" about doing and never do. We all have issues that speak very close to our hearts and we could do more to communicate how it affects us.

 

Posted by Lindsey Hasford, Bringing you home... (Edina Realty) about 8 years ago

Karen,  Thank you for sharing this video.  I don't shop at Target, now I have a reason.  I have boycotted Walmart for years because of their stance on not providing medical insurance for the vast majority of their employees.   I think it is scandalous that the largest retailer in America hires nearly all part time employees to get around the benefits rules!  They never get my money or my endorsement.

We all have a voice, and she is using hers.

Karen Anne, I just loved this video.  Her sincerity and calm, matter of fact conviction is truly moving.

To the point of Target's support for the candidate.  That is of course their right, but even if they say it was because of his pro-business stance, it is still a little hard to swallow.  This is not your average anti-gay candidate.  His other views should have been (and maybe were - I don't know) considered.  He has close ties to a radical Christian rock group that has publicly stated their liking of the idea of killing homosexuals.  This is a problem!

Boycotts can always be a double edged sword and there can be unintended consequences.  These can be avoided if consumers and employees voice their discontent loud enough so that Target does something to end the boycott.  Ironically, the boycott would need to be even stronger to avoid these consequences.  A weak boycott will only reduce sales to the point that perhaps not all employees are retained.  A strong boycott will impact the company so much that they will do what they need to do to protect themselves (i.e. reconsider their position.) in order to maintain their sales levels.

Lindsey:  One of the things I REALLY like about writing my posts, and reading the comments of those who participate... is that people actually CONTRIBUTE on my posts... rather than just make "ten word comments" to get their silly 25 points.

And... the beauty of that... is that everybody learns things from each other... myself included.  We really get a dialogue going.  People even come back and make second and third comments.  Now, when THAT happens, I know I've written a good post.  For ME... that is my own "Gold Star."  Star

Lindsey... further on down... in comment # 14... Kristen Wheatley mentions that Mr Emmer had "close ties" to a radical Christian rock group that has publicly stated their liking of the idea of killing homosexuals.

I think somewhere down in the buried depths of my lil old wrinkled brain I remember hearing that, but had forgotten.  Now that I recall that... this pretty much changes everything as far as my opinion of him.

If it is just he is anti-gay marriage... but pro-business... that is one thing.  But if this is true, he is way too much off the deep end for me.

One of the main reasons I wrote this post was to highlight the "everyday-ness' of this woman and her video.  It is awesome in it's everyday-ness.  It is a wonderful example of what anyone could do to express themselves in this YouTube world of today.

And... with the ease of videos going "viral" these days... all it has to do is "catch on"... and Target would more than "get the point."  It's one thing for groups of gay protestors to show up.  It is quite another for thousands and thousands of nice, everyday older women shoppers with gay kids or relatives, or friends... to get riled up enough to do the same thing as this woman did.  Again... thank you so much for sharing your views.

Hi Karen Anne... I saw this video online last week.  Having the courage of one's convictions is a wonderful thing!

Posted by Steve Shatsky about 8 years ago

Deborah:  You are very welcome.  Yes... Wal Mart has many reasons in their make-up for being boycotted.  Lack of health insurance is a good one.  If everyone is part time, they do not need to pay benefits.  Perhaps we all need to remember that the next time we walk in to a Wal Mart and see those "older" ladies and gentlemen "greeters" there.  I am sure they would appreciate an extra smile or an extra kind word from us.

Norma:  How wonderfu it would be if many more of us used our voices to share our thoughts... instead of simply thinking them.

Posted by Karen Anne Stone, Fort Worth Real Estate (New Home Hunters of Fort Worth and Tarrant County) about 8 years ago

Kristen:  I mentioned what you said about the hateful "Christian" rock group.  Killing homosexuals.  Pretty christian, huh ? 

And yes, boycotts can surely be double-edged swords.  I had never thought of the degree of boycott-effectiveness that you mentioned.  Sounds like it is better either to do a video like this woman did, or to REALLY get a boycott going and really make the drop in sales and traffic felt.  I never thought about it... like you said... that an "iffy" boycott that was just enough to cause lay-offs... would be a negative... and that to do it right... would mean to really pull out all the stops.

As I said above, I just love it when commentors on my posts add to much to them... that everyone else learns things... myself included.  Thank you... <smile>

Ruthmarie:  Yes... "power to the older chicks !"  I agree... what this brave woman did was splendid indeed.  Hopefully Target will see that what they did is a really dumb thing.  I can just imagine all the havoc that Emmer as Governor... and that crazy Michelle Bachmann could do together.  Wow... she is one crazy chick.  And her puppies just seem to follow after her... happily lapping up everything she has to say.

Margaret:  I would love to see your next video... the one I just KNOW you will do, when whatever it is that bothers you enough to do it... happens.  And, if you do it loudly enough, perhaps you could become the next "Big Noise from Winnetka."  And yes, I am old enough to remember that tune.

By the way... very cute puppy you have there.  What's your puppy's name?

Roger:  I think Minnesota Mom IS pretty awesome.  She made her point very well with me.  The Target execs ?  Well, as I said in # 19 to Lindsey... something like her video could go "viral."  And, I think that's all it could take.  Maybe I could email my good friend Rachel Maddow... don't I wish... and see if she could feature it one night.  After all... Ms Maddow is "family."

Posted by Karen Anne Stone, Fort Worth Real Estate (New Home Hunters of Fort Worth and Tarrant County) about 8 years ago

Steve:  Yes, I found that this video has been on YouTube for awhile.  Sometimes it takes me awhile to get to things, or for them to get to me.  Slower, old age... that stuff.  The big thing for this woman... was to of course think that... but then to follow through and do it, get it video'd, and get it on YouTube.  How cool !

Posted by Karen Anne Stone, Fort Worth Real Estate (New Home Hunters of Fort Worth and Tarrant County) about 8 years ago

Karen Anne, I just came out from under the mushroom.  I had heard about some sort of controversy created by Target, but I didn't know what it was.  I am so thankful to have been enlightened by your post.  I watched the video with tears in my eyes toward the end, as she described her grandchildren's Uncle Jay.  Children accept people as they are... straight, gay, lesbian, purple, blue, pink and white striped... kids don't have prejudices.  Too bad we adults can't be more childlike.

There was a time when I just didn't get it.  My aha moment was the movie Philadelphia.  I came away from that movie with a much better understanding.  Even now, I get goose bumps when I think of that movie.  It changed my entire way of thinking.

Posted by Christine Hart Howlett, Keller Williams Greater Cleveland NE (Painesville and Eastern Lake County) about 8 years ago

Christine:  Mushrooms are good.  I will gently saute them, and then make a big hot bowl of Campbell's Mushroom Soup, and put the sauteed mushrooms in.  Yum.

Ok... now that we've got that settled... funny you mention purple and pink lesbians.  They are my favorite kind.  I knew one named Brenda some time ago.   Pink and purple.  And, what a talker she was.  A lovely woman.  Anyway, I digress.

I am so glad you watched this video.  It is wonderful in its ordinary-ness.  This woman, in her quiet graceful way, rocks.  And yes... the way she described Uncle Jay... it really doesn't matter.  It IS too bad we adults cannot be more child-like.  I actually think that is one thing about most kids that really scares their homophobic parents.  That the kids really don't care... they accept people, for the most part, just as they are.  And their parents are afraid they'll grow up and stay "unafraid."

I am sad for you for the time in your life when you "just didn't get it."  And I am so glad that now... you DO... "get it."  And yes, the movie Philadelphia was excellent.  Tom Hanks is such a prize of an actor.  So many other actors just "play themselves."  Hanks... actually "acts."

Gay folks are just like anybody else.  Just like left-handed folks are just like right-handed folks.  Or just like blue-eyed folks are just like green-eyed folks.  It is just so sad that so many folks get so freaky over people who are different from them.

By the way... did you read ALL of the comments in my post ?  Usually my posts turn into more like dialogues than just one-shot comment posts.  Often-times most folks either come back and make more comments... which I encourage... or at least come back and read and follow along on the newer comments.

I am so glad you stopped by, Christine.  Have a great weekend.

Wow.

Subtle... 

Powerful... 

Meaningful... 

A new Super Target opened in my neighborhood, and I was excited about it. I recently, eagerly starting shopping there. So new, so big, so convenient. In fact, I was heading over there this morning with my shopping list in-hand. But in support of this boycott, I’ll take my grocery list and shop elsewhere, quietly expressing my disagreement with Target’s choice to support an anti-gay candidate… one-dollar-at-a-time.  

Thanks for sharing this, Karen Anne.

Bill:  Ouch... so sorry to have ruined your shopping day.  Super Targets are fun.  But I will admit that doing things like this... and going against those who are against equal rights, and in this case, are supporting folks (that "christian" rock group) that advocates killing homosexuals... sometimes us doing what we can to right a wrong... can take us "walking the extra mile" or driving further to take care of some shopping. 

This is really too bad, cuz I liked Target.  But, there are many other places out there that want my shopping dollar.  Thanks for your comment, Bill... and have a great weekend.

Posted by Karen Anne Stone, Fort Worth Real Estate (New Home Hunters of Fort Worth and Tarrant County) about 8 years ago

Dawn:  Oh, this is much more than simply interesting.  And yes, the woman in the video makes a very strong point.  Your question about just how far up the Target management chain her message will go... would be quite different if it were not for YouTube.

Trust me... upper management is most certainly aware of this video... and surely monitors how many hits it gets on YouTube... perhaps even several times a day.  This is one of the wonders, and one of the things that can be either a positive or a negative about the internet and YouTube.  This woman's video is going around the world.

So no... I am sure she is not worried about whether or not her effort was a wasted one.  It WILL be seen.

William:  Yes, the woman has the courage to stand up for her beliefs.  And... it's not just an equality issue.  With the revelation that Gubernatorial candidate Emmers is a fanatical supporter of this "christian" rock group that encourages violence and actually killing of gays and lesbians... we are talking about supporting MURDER here.  So, this is not a small thing this woman has done.

Christians advocating killing homosexuals.  Sounds pretty serious to me.  I am very proud of this woman, and of what she has done, and continues to do.

OHMYGOSH! I'm with Ellie (#45)! I've been avoiding WalMart for years now in protest of their part-time, no insurance, no benefit treatment of so many workers. I guess Sears and KMart are maybe, I hope, a little better?

Even higher education is affected by this part-time worker phenomenon. Our local university has been working under a hiring freeze for what seems like YEARS. They replace professors with part-time teachers who get paid $2000 to teach a semester course. No benefits, no voice, no job security, but they are cheap. Five classes for two semesters would equal a full-time position. 5 x 2 x $2000 = a year's worth of college level teaching for the princely sum of $20,000! That's a WalMart attitude invading education. Where are the academics who hold office hours, agonize over curriculum issues, cultivate a professional atmosphere? Oh, I know. They are out at their part-time jobs at Wally World and Target.

Wallace:  Welcome to my world... <smile>  So, if I am hearing you correctly, being an ethical person, and not supporting candidates that advocate the killing of certain groups of minorities... by which I mean Tom Emmer supporting a music group that advocates violence against them... that it is ok to be against such killings, unless said protest has a negative effect on the company's business and bottom line, and then it's NOT ok to protest someone who advocates such killings ?

I do not understand the concept of "negotiable virtue."  That doing the right thing is great, unless it costs the company money.

Wallace:  Target contributed $150,000 to Tom Emmer.  Mr Emmer supports this "christian" rock band and so-called ministry called "You can run but you cannot hide." 

Here is a link to an article about them... which shows Mr Emmer in a photo with some band members.   GOP-linked punk rock ministry says executing gays is "moral" | Twin Cities Daily Planet .  I welcome you to read the article, and try and understand why supporting a group and ministry that advocates KILLING gays... is thought to be objectionable.

There are too many comments for me to read them all. But I want to say what I got out of this video and the few comments I did read was something else.

People and people who run companies need to be careful of who they endorse or actions they may take and most of all "gifts" they may receive.

Maybe Target was not against Gay Rights but rather hopeful to get something else from the canidate and didn't bother to read the fine print that came with the "gift". Getting something for something. I hope I am expressing my self to where I make sense.

We have all done this at one time or another in our past and we may do it in our future. All I am saying is study the thing before you get on board with it.

Coming to you from Texas,,,
