Is the Home Depot Anti-American?

Diversity in work is good as long as American values are maintained

My friend who works at the Home Depot store, provided the photo to me showing how HD promotes diversity in the work place. It shows an assistant manager woman who is wearing the black hijab of a Muslim that covers the face except for a section for the eyes. There is no doubt that due to the laws that cover diversity in work, HD was forced to allow this woman to "practice her faith and customs", as long as the orange Home Depot is showing that identifies her as an employee.

As a customer, with all the terrorism in the world, would you feel a little bit uneasy if this approached you? Most Americans would feel uneasy because in this culture, if you cannot see the face of a person, you are suspicious. The black hijab in the world media represents a terrorist or someone trying to do evil. This is how ISIS portrayed it and others. If the hijab was a different color, there might be less push back from customers and employees.

But there is an anti-America streak at Home Depot. A few years ago, employees were forbidden to wear American flag pins on the apron. There was a huge push back from employees but in the end they were forced to comply. This is hypocrisy. HD allows a symbol of terrorism and anti-American culture to be worn by employees under the guise of diversity in the workplace, yet one cannot wear a small American flag pin ??? Sounds like HD will do anything for a buck, patriotic or not.

Granted, there are not that many Muslims wearing Hijabs at HD stores, but this one, shown in a video on their company website (not public) promoting diversity is just a bad idea. There is such a thing of eroding American values and culture as many cultures come to reside here. Why does America have to assimilate all of them while tossing aside those core American values in the work place? There are plenty of other places to show off one's cultural and religious beliefs outside of work.

Only in America does the law allow for this. In France, women are fined for wearing the Hijab in public, like the one at HD. Some call this racist, but the French government is only trying to preserve its culture and identity. If those Muslims there have an issue with this, they can move out of France or obey the law of the land, no different than traffic rules. Other European countries have made similar laws as countries are flooded with Muslims from those countries wear the Hijab must be worn. Ironically, if those same women did not wear the Hijab, they would be flogged or beaten, in France, they get fined for wearing it.

Laws are laws. Western women going to Iran, Saudi Arabia and other such countries respect their law by wearing a head scarf over their head.

The black Hijab is politically charged symbol in the West representing hate, racism, and terrorism. Diversity in the work place in America is being used to all this to promote and force Americans to accept the Hijab. This is a bad move for any business to adopt where one cannot look at the face of the salesperson. It's a matter of trust and this black hijab promotes distrust.

      Thanks for speaking up about Home Depot and these issues Americans face. I would not shop at the store.

      Each business needs to determine their own culture, but having a face covered is a no-go for business. For any ID, the face must be visible.

      I agree.

      What about these facial coverings and the pictures on driver licenses?

      Should that be allowed?

      It is just bad business policy in the USA to allow it. Employers just need to stand their ground when it comes to what to allow in the name of diversity.
