This afternoon the Human Rights Campaign did the right thing and removed Target and Best Buy from their Equality Buying 2010 buyer's guide. This morning my interview with HRC's Fred Sainz had been posted on many web sites. Glad to see HRC removing these companies from their guide, as there need to be consequences for Target's, and Best Buy's, actions. Wrote HRC's Michael Cole in a statement which he sent me:
Because we understand the impact of leaving Target and Best Buy on the various products associated with the Buyer’s Guide, both companies will soon be removed from it.HRC will not encourage people to shop at either store and believes that consumers should make their own decisions after careful consideration of all of the information available to them.
