Vans

(owned by VF Corporation)

 

Touts itself as fighting against systemic racism

by implementing systemically racist hiring policies

 

THE BAD:

Vans is owned by the 'ultra-woke' VF Corp, which also owns the far-left NorthFace company. VF Corp donated nearly 12 times as much money to the Biden campaign than to the Trump campaign.

 

Vans is "building and supporting a diverse culture". This is a soft metaphor for race quotas. Vans wants to hire more people based on race rather than merit. Vans is so proud of their reverse racism that they display it prominently for all to see.

 

Vans actually keeps an employee "race scorecard" comparing white employees to black, indigenous, and people of color employees. Vans has vowed to double the number of employees with black skin pigmentation by 2025 -- AKA get rid of or hire fewer employees with white skin pigmentation. Considering that Vans shoes have been a shoe of choice for white surfers and skateboarders, is it any wonder that 61% of Vans office employees are white? If everything must be equal, then why doesn't the NBA hire more white players? The NBA lacks diversity, as 74.2 percent of players are black, only 16.9 percent are white, only 2.2 percent Latino, and only 0.4 percent Asian.

Vans donated $200,000 to the NAACP, Color of Change, and DSA Network.

 

THE GOOD:

Vans has no redeeming qualities.

 

THE BOTTOM LINE:

Do not buy Vans shoes or any other VF Corp company merchandise from The NorthFace, JanSport, Eastpak, Timberland, Dickies, Kodiac, Red Kap, Altra shoes.

 

 

ALTERNATIVES:

1. New Balance has a stellar donation record. However, pushing climate change nonsense. Beggars can't be choosers in this 'woke' category.

 

2. Dr. Scholl's seems to be apolitical.

 

3. Denali is owned by a company that seems to be apolitical.

 

4. Any other brand that is not on our boycott list.
