As 24News reported Tuesday, a leaked mandated "diversity training" training session from Goodyear branded Blue Lives Matter, All Lives Matter and MAGA attire unacceptable, while deeming Black Lives Matter and LGBT slogans to be acceptable.
The leaked slide is of their zero tolerance policy towards support for police or conservative values, making clear which opinions are allowed and which arent.
Under acceptable: Black Lives Matter (BLM), Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride.
Listed as unacceptable: Blue Lives Matter, All Lives Matter, MAGA Attire, Political Affiliated Slogans or Material.
According to a report from WIBW, the person who took the photo of the slide said that it was presented at a Topeka plant by an area manager and says it came from their corporate office out of Akron, Ohio.

OOooohh . and I was just about to buy an $800 set of goodyear tires...
Never buy goodyear.
Gonna be a bad year for Goodyear.
I have Goodyear tires. Next time it will be something else.
So ... “Badyear” is the new branding? Sounds like a winner.
I smell a boycott in the air — and a buycott for Michelin, etc.
Those Japanese Toyo tires are looking better all the time
And you can bet Goodyear was enforcing that policy outside the workplace if you got caught wearing anything with the prohibited phrases.
Goodyear has chosen violence, and to use
its tires for sex trafficking instead of America.
BYE BYE Goodyear.
Bought your racist/antiAmerican tires for DECADES.
Here are some business models that I think some US companies might want to adopt:
“We sell tires.”
“We sell shoes.”
“We sell coffee.”
There is no need to venture into the political realm, or punish employees who have political opinions. Just sell products.
Yup, so was I.
Aint gonna happen now and I WILL tell the tire guy why.
this is so typical of large corp who run diversity operations, they are often led by HR people coming out of liberal colleges or are “women of color” and hence can never be challenged.i ran into the same thing at a large food corp-African Americans and women were protected from any layoff and even if caught stealing could not be fired without HR approval. I will not be buying Goodyear tires
The replacements will not be Goodyear tires.
Buy Cooper tires, they are better anyway.
Cooper AT-3 are the best summer/winter AT tires I’ve ever seen. You may never need to put it in 4X4 again. They are that good.
Dunlop for my Harley.
Something else for my car.
And a dart from a blowgun for the blimp. :-)
We sell tires.
We sell shoes.
We sell coffee.

Completely agree. It's so basic. Don't alienate ~50% of your customer base.
Ive been buying Continental for my bike and hatchback/SUV (Sorry, its a hatchback despite what MB says.).
My real SUV got Coopers. Theres no way Im buying Goodyear but honestly it was never an issue since I never bought them to begin with.
We only buy Michelin as a rule, unless they don’t have the type of tire my hubby wants.
