Sometimes you just have to call a spade a spade. National Black Farmers Association (NBFA) president John Boyd is calling out PepsiCo for claims of all talk and no action when it comes to their approach to discrimination. The giant food and beverage company is currently under fire for its alleged dismissive treatment of Black farmers along with claims of other environmental issues that include the exploitation of water resources and global plastic pollution, according to a press release. “As a shareholder of the PepsiCo Corporation, I am calling on PepsiCo Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Ramon Laguarta to meet with NBFA leaders and respond to the hardship and realities his company’s latest recent discriminatory act has caused,” said Boyd.
