They do suck !!!
But are they racist and does all business have to make decisions on what to offer as service or product based on affirmative action ?
That seems like a stretch but it could be the future.
Wendy's may have to start offering burritos and Kung Pao Chicken !!!

Who case who the CEO donated for, and adding the word 'ultra' to everything, does nor actually make things any more, or less liberal.

No, you don't . No one has a choice between two cable companies. You can choose satellite, or now ATT, which do not use cable.
