A Wal-Mart store in Washington Township, New Jersey as found itself in a full fledged shit storm after a racist announcement was made over the in store PA system Wednesday.
"Attention Wal-Mart customers: All Black people leave the store now."
That was the announcement heard throughout the store.
"I want to know why such statements are being made, because it flies in the face of what we teach our children about tolerance for all," said Sheila Ellington, who was in the store at the time with a friend. "If this was meant to be a prank, there's only one person laughing, and it's not either one of us."
The store manager reportedly was quick to get on the Pa after the announcement was made, apologizing for the comment (and I’m sure very uncomfortably telling the black folk within the store that they were welcome to stay and shop.) Wal-Mart has not yet disclosed if it was a random customer or a rogue employee who made the announcement.
So...How much you wanna bet that the Wal-Mart broke out into thunderous applause upon hearing the announcement...
