The O’Keefe Media Group is sounding the alarm for yet ANOTHER whistleblower this time from the giant tech company Best Buy.
On the heels of our reporting that a Best Buy employee brought us disclosed documents of a management training offered exclusively to non-white employees showing blatant racial discrimination, we now have a second whistleblower revealing the religious bias that the retail giant has, despite their additional level of preference for the LGBTQ community.
Geek Squad member Enis Sujak who is an immigrant from Serbia spoke with James O’Keefe on a zoom call as he told the story of the interaction with his manager Michael Hirsch.
The conversation centered around the incident that occurred when another employee Athena Cruz, a well-being ambassador was giving a history on the LGBTQ Community in the workspace. Enis Sujak decided to walk out of the session, having later stated that he doesn’t care about “who you sleep with” and that he didn’t think that a lifestyle that needed to “preached” to them in a work environment.
Enis then recorded the conversation with his manager, Michael, following this incident, during which the following quotes could be heard:
“Let’s have the cross all over the hub….why don’t we have Christian stuff all over?” says Enis, to which Michael replies with “they’re not the same [as pride flags]”. He continues “you are choosing to believe in Christianity….they [LGBTQ community] don’t choose it.”
O’Keefe Media Group has reached out to both Athena Cruz and Mike Hirsch and the Best Buy CEO Corie Barry and at the time of publishing we have not yet received a comment.
The document included in the video report states in part the following regarding the people who can apply for management jobs:
Candidates must meet the requirements below.
• Identify as Black, Latino, Hispanic, Asian or Pacific Island.
The Washington Examiner published an article titled “'Time to Bud Light Best Buy': Best Buy faces blowback for leadership training program that excludes white applicants.”
Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Act prohibits employment discrimination based upon race and several other classifications.

Unlike most of Florida Family Association's action emails this email is designed to open in your email client because Best Buy and the companies of several board membersare blocking normal form emails sent through the Florida Family Association email server. If the above link does not open in your email browser or if the email is returned to you please prepare an email by copying the suggested subject line, content and email addresses provided below in your own email client. Please feel free to change the wording.
Suggested subject line:
Report regarding alleged illegal racist and religiously bigoted Best Buy employment practices.
I was shocked to read the report by the O Keefe Media Group regarding Best Buy bias against hiring white people for management positions and inequitable treatment toward Christians but favoring LGBTQ+ employee practices. It is equally concerning that Corie Barry is blocking and ignoring questions regarding the appearance that Best Buy is violating Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Act. I will patronize other electronic and high tech companies until Best Buy publicly corrects this tragic situation.
