A shop in this far-left city temporarily closed down for this crazy and divisive reason

Large west coast cities have been ground zero in the woke culture wars for years.

Rioting in 2020 after George Floyd’s death led to billions in damages nationwide, but radical Left virtue signaling has remained sickeningly pervasive.

Now, a shop in this far-left city temporarily closed down for this crazy and divisive reason .

A Portland, Oregon clothing store has announced that they will be closing their store for three weeks to undergo training to cure “white supremacy” because of guilt over firing a BIPOC employee.

The clothing store, called Artifact, said in an Instagram post, “After deep consideration, we have decided to close Artifact’s doors for the next two to three weeks, effective immediately, February 26th. After letting a BIPOC employee go, it was brought to our attention concerns of microaggression and racial biases within the store. We value our employee’s experiences and do not take their words lightly.”

But wait, there’s more.

Also on Instagram, the store posted, “Artifact is engaging an independent BIPOC investigator who will conduct interviews with employees. In addition the investigator will audit our organization to highlight areas to improve to make mindful change to an anti-racist future. Artifact will take the opportunity to further educate its management team on racial equity, implicit bias, white supremacy culture and identifying and interrupting microaggressions. Artifact will hold staff-wide training on any topics recommended by the investigator as areas of improvement.”

One detail missing in all of this is why the store chose to fire the employee and what, if anything, it had to do with any of the gobbledygook in their Instagram posts.

This seems kind of important, because individual BIPOC employees can be just as wonderful, or terrible, in the workplace as anyone else.

Libs Of TikTok gets to the heart of the matter, saying “A Portland clothing shop apologized for firing a BIPOC employee and announced they will close for 3 weeks to conduct racial equity, white supremacy and microaggressions education. This announcement is peak leftist virtue signaling.”

It may not be the best place to raise a family, earn a middle-class living or run a business, but Portland always seems to be on the cutting edge of the latest cultural trends.
