Target is still evil. The Republican controlled legislature in Minnesota recently pushed through a ballot initiative for 2012 that would add an anti-marriage equality ammendment to the State Constitution. Target, a Minneapolis based company, has been a long-time sponsor of Twin Cities Pride, but it’s CEO stated that the company will remain neutral on the ammendment. Twin Cities Pride, nonetheless, chose to keep them on as a sponsor knowing their reluctance to come out either way on this extremely divisive issue.
It reminds me of how AT&T are buying off non-profits for support. Twin Cities Pride should dump Target as a sponsor, no matter how much cash the corporation throws at the event, until they take a stand on marriage equality.
Minnesota Independent has more.
