Believe it or not, in Southern New Jersey a Wal-Mart employees got on the PA system and told all the "Black People" to leave the store. Can you believe it? http://www.aolnews.com/nation/article/new-jersey-walmart-announcer-says-all-black-people-leave-the-store-now/19404321?sms_ss=email

They did. A 16yr old boy who was a customer in the store is in custody now for making a bias remark and causing a commotion.

A prankster --wonder how easy it is to get on the PA system there?? Blacks have every right in a Wal Mart unless they were being told to leave due a threat to their lives. I'd ignore it even if I were black. It was meant to be nasty if it were a prangster but this kind of thing has been happening for centuries now. Black , white? we are all the same inside.

With all the effort that's been made in the past 30-40 years, I'm always surprised that things like this happen. It takes a person who truly wants to be hateful to still hold onto ignorance and prejudice to do things like this.

Maybe there's someone who is a racists,not to blame the Wal-Mart employees and other staffs. No one actually knows who made the statement,but they can investigate this matter too. This is too upsetting to hear such words when kids are around. Hope the culprit will be charge and be punished for this very rude statement. In behalf of Wal-Mart,they should add more security cam around the costumer service to see who's using the mic for instances like this.

I know its 2010 but you would think the way things are going on in the world with racism that we were going backwards instead of forward. If it was an employee I surely hope he was fired. If they find out it was a customer that customer should never be allowed back in the store. What is going on in the world today. We have a black President but it seems like it doesn't matter. There must be alot of people hating blacks for some reason. Its so sad the way the world is going I wouldn't be surprised if the world was to end in 2012. God has to be so angry at us for what we are doing after all that he did for us and gave us.
