GOYA PRODUCTS BOYCOTT
Unless you are Hispanic, I believe there’s no place in this conversation for you. I don’t mean to say that you shouldn’t have an opinion. Yet, I won’t tolerate anyone absconding with this narrative because it belongs to the Latin cultures stemming from Spain (from where the company originated) and other countries where the brand took off and became successful.
I grew with these products in my mother’s kitchen … the “habichuelas, gandules, sofrito, adobo, spices“. If you don’t know these words, their meaning or how we use them … that strengthens my point.
The Goya CEO went to the White House, poohoo … big deal!
Yet, he had the gall to say: ‘we are blessed to have a leader like Trump’. He can pray for Trump all he wants. But he won’t be able to erase all the comments, actions, etc., which came from that disgusting Oval office squatter as a show of overt racism and prejudice with Hispanics all over this nation and the world:
1. Mexicans are rapist and murderers.
2. prejudice against Latinos and Puerto Rican (they want everything done for them, after throwing paper towels during the devastation after Hurricane María).
3. separating immigrant families at the border and placing them and their kids in cages … still happening to this day.
4. overt attempt to deports DACA recipients.
5. Draconian immigration policies against peoples trying to escape from danger and oppressive governments.
6. building his wall to keep Mexicans and other immigrants from crossing over to the US … ironic that now, because of COVID, Mexico is keeping Americans out).
…. and so much more.
For me personally, it’s not only Goya. I feel the same way about Chick-fil-A, Ace Hardware, Home Depot, My Pillow … and any other business or company that embraces/supports and contributes to this ‘swamp creature‘.
Hence, I full support the boycott!! No more Goya in my household!
The very same way he has a right to express his feeling and thoughts, so do we, the consumers.
#BoycottGoya … #Goyaway
Goya Foods, Inc. is an American producer of a brand of foods sold in the United States and many Hispanic countries. It has facilities in different parts of the United States, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Spain. It is under third-generation ownership of the Unanue family, and is headquartered in Jersey City, New Jersey, USA.
Goya was founded in 1936, by Prudencio Unanue Ortiz (1886–1976) from Valle de Mena, Spain. Unanue immigrated to Puerto Rico, where he met and married Carolina Casal (1890–1984), also a Spanish immigrant; they later moved to New York City.
Ortiz purchased the “Goya” name from a Moroccan sardine company because he believed that his last name was too difficult to pronounce for American customers and also liked the association to Spanish artist Francisco Goya.
AND THEN DRUMPF HAS THE BALLS TO TWEET THIS OUT!!
ANOTHER REASON TO DROP GOYA!
DRUMPF IS USING THEM, AND, EITHER THEY ARE DENSE AND DON’T KNOW OR THEY ARE AWARE AND APPROVE!
AND TO THOSE NON-LATINX (nice way of identifying tem) THIS APPLIES TO YOU. DO NOT APPROPRIATE THE PRODUCTS TRULY ASSOCIATED WITH HISPANIC CULTURE.
IS THIS “CANCEL CULTURE”?
IF IT IS, I DON’T GIVE A SHYTE!!
THEIR SLOGAN IS:
“SI ES GOYA, TIENE QUE SER BUENO!”
“SI NO ES GOYA, TIENE QUE SER BUENO!”
