The AJC stories that upon successful their awards, the corporate stated:
“Renaissance Man Meals Companies is one in all our longstanding and intensely profitable numerous provider partnerships … Owned and operated by Mr. Herschel Walker, Renaissance Man has served as an integral meals companion to our Courtyard Model, supplying rooster merchandise to the vast majority of these properties all through america.”
However throughout a Republican roundtable in an Atlanta neighborhood, Walker took a really totally different tone about minority-owned companies.
“I didn’t need to be a Black-owned enterprise … I needed to be a enterprise,” Walker stated.
And when requested concerning the difficulties of being a minority enterprise proprietor and the way the grants and assist they’ll obtain can usually assist making alternatives equal, the AJC stories the Heisman Trophy winner replied: “There’s at all times room for affirmative motion, however it’s a must to put the suitable individual on the desk.”
However Walker’s double commonplace angle actually is the least of his issues.
As we’ve reported at Day by day Kos, Walker’s lies are ubiquitous.

He even lately tried to disclaim that former President Donald Trump ever stated that the 2020 election was stolen.
It’s no surprise Walker has continued to waffle on debates in opposition to Georgia’s Democratic incumbent, Sen. Raphael Warnock.
As reported by Georgia Public Radio (GPB) in early August, Walker agreed to a debate in opposition to Warnock in Savannah on Oct. 14. The controversy is sponsored by the mammoth conglomerate Nexstar Media Group, “which owns a number of tv stations in Georgia, together with WSAV in Savannah,” based on GPB.
