Eric sent a message to Rodney McMullen that said:
I am writing to, again, express my anger at your pandering with this diversity/equity/inclusion bandwagon that you have attached Kroger to. You should be hiring, promoting, and purchasing from the most qualified or best candidate or best supplier. This is WITHOUT REGARD to race or any other qualifier. If your desire is to look for specific diversity then you are instead causing the problem you are pandering to. You have lost me as a customer for good. I hope others walk away and to your competitor as well.
