Yet another wealthy white business owner has been caught whining about and trashing religious and racial minority groups in this country, and she’s the founder of an oil corporation.
Charlotte Lucas founded Lucas Oil with her husband in 1989. Her surname is perhaps most visible to the public, however, on the stadium where the Indianapolis Colts play football. Her husband Forrest has a net worth of $300 million and their company brings in an annual revenue of $150 million. One would think they would have respect for Americans of every color and creed, considering that they didn’t make their fortune just selling oil products to white Christians. But Charlotte Lucas took to the internet anyway to write a hateful post on Facebook about how she’s sick and tired of atheists, Muslims, and other minorities in this country telling the white majority what to do.
“I’m sick and tired of minorities running our country!” Lucas wrote according to RTV6 in Indiana.
As far as I’m concerned, I don’t think that atheists (minority), muslims [sic] (minority) nor any other minority group has the right to tell the majority of the people in the United States what they can and cannot do here. Is everyone so scared that they can’t fight back for what is right or wrong with his country?
Here’s the image of the post via RTV6.
It appears that Lucas has since removed her post and taken down her page but as is usually the case with the internet, once you post it, there will always be a copy. But Charlotte wasn’t finished embarrassing herself and her family in public. In a phone call with RTV6, Lucas explained that she was angry when she wrote the post but then went on to stick her foot back in her mouth.
I was very upset when I wrote that. I will not elaborate other than to say that there are certain people who are trying to make the whole world eat what they want to eat and do what they want to do. I don’t think it’s any of their business what I put in my mouth. Thank you.
Here’s a video of the report via RTV6.
Presumably, Lucas is mad because racial minorities want equal rights and religious and non-religious minorities want the government to adhere to the separation of church and state and stay neutral in religious matters. It’s been a hallmark of conservative “Christians” for decades now to try and declare America a Christian state ruled by biblical law with people of “Anglo-Saxon” heritage (white people) in power. Lucas, like other wealthy one percenters, apparently would prefer a white conservative man in the White House and the continued oppression of those they feel are inferior in society.
Once again, a wealthy white member of the corporate elite has opened their mouth to disparage a huge swath of Americans. Minority groups currently make up 37 percent of the American population. Lucas’ post also seems to be an angry gasp lamenting the dwindling power of the white majority in America. According to US Census estimates, white Americans will become the new minority by 2043. So perhaps it would be a much smarter idea for Lucas and those of her ilk to keep their hate to themselves. Or better yet, help minorities have a fair and equal voice in this country and support the separation of church and state. Because one day in the near future, minorities will outnumber white people, which means they not only don’t have to take the sh*t you hurl at them anymore, they can start treating you the way you have been treating them. Then you’ll have something real to whine about.
