Ford Keeps Sinking

Boy, they just keep getting their asses kicked. I guess it's true what my momma always said: "If you go to bed with dogs, you'll wake up with fleas."

Well, they got in bed with the AFA, now Ford is their bitch. I don't know if all the spin in the world will fix what ails them: pure unadulterated bigotry.

A headline from the Holmes Report, one of the TOP corporate communications publications in the country that EVERY public relations agency reads, states:

Under Pressure From KKK, Ford Pulls Ads From Black Media

Okay, so that’s not quite the story, although the KKK should probably give it a try, because if Ford’s craven response to pressure from the American Family Association is any indication, the company would buckle under at the first sign of trouble....
...
Forty years ago, at the height of the civil rights struggle, the KKK had about the same economic influence, popular support and moral authority the American Family Association enjoys today. It’s hard to imagine that Ford then would have negotiated with the Klan, far less given it an excuse to claim victory. The company’s surrender to the AFA tells you all you need to know about the quality of leadership at Ford today.
