Sounds great, think I'll sign up! Oh, wait, what's that link to a Daily News article [1] they've so helpfully provided? What? It details how residents of the Los Angeles neighborhood Sunland-Tujunga have been fighting against a Home Depot moving in to their area and:
...Organizers originally hired by a public relations firm working for Home Depot say they have independently launched a campaign to expose what they say is rampant racism in the opposition of the big-box home store.

...Daniel Haro said he witnessed blatant racism as he canvassed Sunland-Tujunga to drum up support for the store. About a month ago, he quit his job with Dakota Communications, a public relations and lobbying firm representing Home Depot, to start Stop Racism...

That they look stupid because of it is part of my satisfaction about this turncoat company.
