Someone took to the loud speaker in a NJ Wal-Mart the other day
and made an announcement for ‘black folks to go away’::

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, New Jersey – Wal-Mart Stores Inc. officials are reviewing security tapes to try to determine who used a southern New Jersey store’s public-address system to tell “all black people” to leave.

On Sunday evening at the Washington Township store, a male voice calmly announced: “Attention Wal-Mart customers: All black people leave the store now.”

Witnesses told the Courier-Post newspaper that customers and store employees looked stunned. Management later apologized.

The company spokesperson can’t identify who did the bid of ‘ill customer relations’
So Wal-Mart is looking into the matter and the incident is under investigation.

As for the black customers who were shopping – an apology will have to suffice
After all if you’re shopping at Wal-Mart chalk it up to the high cost of a low price.
