WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) -- A Walmart store announcement ordering black people to leave brought chagrin and apologies Wednesday from leaders of the company, which has built a fragile trust among minority communities.

A male voice came over the public-address system Sunday evening at a store in Washington Township, in southern New Jersey, and calmly announced: "Attention, Walmart customers: All black people, leave the store now."

Shoppers in the store at the time said a manager quickly got on the public-address system and apologized for the remark. And while it was unclear whether a rogue patron or an employee was responsible for the comment, many customers expressed their anger to store management.

"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."

Ellington, of Monroe, and her friend Patricia Covington said they plan to boycott the retailer until they're assured the issue has been addressed so it doesn't happen again.

The pair said they were stunned when they heard the announcement and initially believed they had misheard it. But once the words sank in, they grew angry.

"I depended on Walmart for all my needs, because the store has pretty much everything you could want," Covington said. "But until this issue is addressed in a way I'm comfortable with, I can't walk through those doors again."

Officials with Wal-Mart Stores Inc., based in Bentonville, Ark., said that the announcement was "unacceptable" and that they're trying to determine who made it and how it happened.

"We are just as appalled by this incident as our customers," the company said in a statement. "Whoever did this is just wrong and acted in an inappropriate manner. Clearly, this is completely unacceptable to us and to our customers."

This is not the first time the retailer has faced such problems.

There have been several past instances of black customers claiming they were treated unfairly at Walmart stores, and the company faced lawsuits alleging that women were passed over in favor of men for pay raises and promotions.

In February 2009, the retailer paid $17.5 million to settle a class action lawsuit alleging racial discrimination in its hiring of truck drivers.

And the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued the company in May 2009, claiming some Hispanic employees at a Sam's Club subsidiary in California were subjected to a hostile work environment. That suit alleges managers failed to stop repeated verbal harassment, including the use of derogatory words, against employees of Mexican descent.

However, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has said the company has worked hard in recent years to show it cares about diversity.

Bill Mitchell, a former Walmart employee who was shopping Wednesday at the store, said that he was saddened to hear about the announcement but that "as a black man, I've heard worse things."

As customer Sharon Osbourne, of Williamstown, left the store Wednesday, she called the announcement "appalling, stupid and sad."

To be fair the apology issued by the manager was:

"We apologize profusely for the announcement over the PA system asking that all black patrons immediately leave the premises. This was some sick joke. Everyone knows that you if you all left immediately, you wouldn't pay for your goods, so please pay for the items in your cart, and then leave. Thank you. Shop again at Walmart."

Yeah this is dumb. Blame Wal-Mart. I used to work at Sam's Club, it's the same code everywhere I've went to get on the PA system. When I was a young hoodlum, I got on the intercom at a Wal-Mart store (I did not work there) and I said we were having a special on some inappropriate item. Could have been anybody, and even if it was an employee....so what. Shit happens.

"I depended on Walmart for all my needs, because the store has pretty much everything you could want," Covington said. "But until this issue is addressed in a way I'm comfortable with, I can't walk through those doors again."...

I'm assuming from the context that Ms. Ellington and Ms. Covington are African Americans.

Setting aside the question of what kind of a woman could have "all (her) needs" met by Walmart, it occurs to me that by staying away from the store Ms. Covington is doing exactly what the announcement suggested.

You'll have Sharpton calling racism, some white moron calling reverse racism, and Whitlock will come out with a column explaining why he wants to be on this side this time, but will have the other side in his holster for the next slow day. When I hear something along these lines I find myself asking "are we really still here?" I don't get racism, the other ism's, or phobe's that still exist in the world today. Was dating a girl about a month ago that's a big Bible thumper and she told me with a straight face (pardon the pun) that being gay is a lifestyle choice and they're all sinners on the fast track to the "lake of fire"................what?? Sorry, but your wired that way straight out of the box. Maybe had a difficult birth and swore off the pussy from that point on........I don't know, but two guys that I went to school with pretty much K-12th grade that have come out of the closet since and everyone knew in 3rd grade they where queer as a football bat. Who gives two shit's about consenting adults doing something that doesn't hurt anyone else or what color sombodies skin is...........this isn't aimed at anyone here in particular, but if you've got a superiority complex because of your sexuality or skin color, grow up.

I mean she was just so hurt and saddened by this, because you know, WAL-MART does this all the time and it was surely on purpose. Addressing the issue???? If it was a co-worker, obviously he will get fired. If it was some customer that got onto the PA system, what is the store supposed to do? Look at security, notify the FBI and try to hunt this person down??? The store immediately got on the PA and apologized.

Arrest Made in N.J. Walmart 'All Black People' Case

AP

The Washington Township Police Department said on its Web site early Saturday that an arrest has been made in a "bias incident" at the retail store.

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. - Police say they have made an arrest in the case of a racial comment being made over the public-address system at a Walmart store in southern New Jersey.

The Washington Township Police Department said on its Web site early Saturday that an arrest has been made in a "bias incident" at the retail store. The posting says the police and Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office will announce the arrest at a midday news conference.

Washington Township Police declined to comment early Saturday.

A male voice came over the Walmart public address system Sunday evening and calmly announced: "Attention, Walmart customers: All black people, leave the store now." The announcement provoked an immediate apology from the store manager.

Officials for Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart Stores Inc., said the announcement was "unacceptable."

Teen charged in NJ Walmart racial comment case


By BRUCE SHIPKOWSKI, Associated Press Writer Bruce Shipkowski, Associated Press Writer – 35 mins ago

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. – A 16-year-old boy patronizing a Walmart store in southern New Jersey took over the public-address system and ordered black people to leave, angering customers and prompting company leaders to apologize, police said Saturday.

Police said the boy, whose name is not being released because he is a juvenile, went on the intercom at Walmart's Washington Township store Sunday evening and calmly announced: "Attention, Walmart customers: All black people, leave the store now."

The teen was arrested Friday on charges of harassment and bias intimidation. Authorities said he was released to the custody of his parents; they did not know whether he had a lawyer.

"This was an extremely disturbing event on many levels," Gloucester County Prosecutor Sean Dalton said at a news conference. "Any statements like these that can cause harm or grave concern must be addressed as quickly we possibly can."

Authorities would not say whether the announcement was planned or made impulsively. Police said they were also investigating a teenage boy who accompanied the suspect to the store, but had not charged the other boy.

Although a manager quickly went on the intercom system and apologized for the remark, many customers expressed their anger to store management.

Officials for Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart Stores Inc., said the announcement was "unacceptable." Spokesman David Tovar said the company planned to release a statement later Saturday, after the news conference.

The company said it has already updated the store's intercom system to prevent a similar incident from happening again.

It was the latest in a series of problems the retailer has had in its dealings with minorities and women.

There have been several past instances of black customers claiming they were treated unfairly at Walmart stores, and the company faced lawsuits alleging that women were passed over in favor of men for pay raises and promotions.

In February 2009, the retailer paid $17.5 million to settle a class action lawsuit alleging racial discrimination in its hiring of truck drivers.

And the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued the company in May 2009, claiming some Hispanic employees at a Sam's Club subsidiary in California were subjected to a hostile work environment. That suit alleges managers failed to stop repeated verbal harassment, including the use of derogatory words, against employees of Mexican descent.

However, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has said the company has worked hard in recent years to show it cares about diversity.

Told you. Wasn't even an employee. Anybody can get on those things. It's easy. I think it's just like pound 96 or something like that.

This dude is a kid, give him disorderly conduct or something and move on.

I like Target. The higher prices mean I can shop in relative peace and safety.
