Top MonaVie Distributor Orrin Woodward Blogs Anti-Immigrant Slander

Millionaire MonaVie distributor Orrin Woodward, in justifying his departure from his former business with Quixtar, shows his prejudice against people who don't speak English as their first language.
There's been much brouhaha on the Internet about how millionaire "Diamond" multi-level marketing distributor Orrin Woodward had his business, and thousands of members of his downline, suddenly terminated from their businesses by Quixtar -- Amway's name in the US. Each side, of course, has their own explanation for what happened, but at least in terms of his prejudices against people who don't "speak English as a first language, Mr. Woodward has shown his true colors on his "Orrin Woodward Leadership Team" blog.

There, in justifying his departure from Quixtar, he writes, "The ability for the new person to achieve success in Quixtar was deplorable in my opinion. My letter to Doug Devos clearly explains that over 600,000 people who speak English as a first language signed up into Quixtar in 1999 and 2000. Out of these 600,000 IBO’s (misnomer?) only six achieved Founders Emerald or above by the end of 2004... Can anyone name a diamond in Amway/Quixtar who signed their application after September 1, 1999 that speaks English? The joke on the internet is that Amway should change their way to Imway (Immigrant Way)."

The wealthy distributor, who has now gone to work for another MLM, MonaVie, He then goes on to give his equivalent of "some of my best friends are immigrants" by saying, "I love and respect all the different nationalities and I believed Amway should provide a business opportunity for all nationalities."

Except, of course, when immigrants and their families out-compete you, right Orrin?
