Walmart is apologizing for a public announcement at a southern New Jersey store that directed "all black people" to leave immediately.
Officials at the Arkansas-based company said they were " just as appalled by this incident as our customers." They're trying to find out whether an employee or a customer made the "unacceptable" comment Sunday night in Washington Township and how it happened.
A male voice calmly announced: "Attention Walmart customers: All black people leave the store now." Shoppers said a store manager quickly apologized over the PA.
Customers were stunned.
"In 2010, I want to know why such statements are being made, because it flies in the face of what we teach them at home, and that's tolerance for people," shopper Shelia Ellington told the Courier-Post.
Nice to know what some people still think is funny nowadays. But then white liberals constantly preaching about living in a "post-racial America" now, you wouldn't think that this sort of thing could still be happening. Right.
