    Chick-fil-A CEO Calls for White Christians to Repent for Racism: 'We're Shameful

    Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy called for white Christians to repent for racism Sunday after his company suffered vandalism in about a dozen of the chain's restaurants over the past week.

    Cathy, the son of Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy, spoke in a roundtable discussion with Passion City founder Louie Giglio and Christian rapper Lecrae. He said whites should not condemn the behavior of destroying others' property. Instead, he said, they should have empathy for the underlying frustration.

    "[M]y plea would be for the white people, rather than point fingers at that kind of criminal effort, would be to see the level of frustration and exasperation and almost the sense of hopelessness that exists on some of those activists within the African-American community," he said.

    Chick-fil-A CEO: White people should show their 'sense of shame' for racism by shining black people's shoes

    Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy said during a church service that one way white people can atone for racism is to shine the shoes of black people to show their "shame."

    "Most of us white people, we're 'out of sight, out of mind' oblivious to it," Cathy said on Sunday. "We cannot let this moment pass."

    Cathy, who was speaking at Atlanta's Passion City Church, told a story about a young man who was "gripped with conviction about the racism that was happening" in his small Texas town and inspired him to kneel before a black man and shine his shoes. Cathy said that "tears began to flow" when that young man told his story at a church service.

    If he really cared he should give all his money to poor African Americans and help them lift their standard of living

    Mr Cathy might have had in mind the foot washing tradition of humble service as described in John:

    If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. 15 For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. 16 Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. 17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them."
