    "They" can't provoke us to do anything. It was a stupid prank, we need to stop letting little nonsense like this get us going. It's exactly the reaction that is expected.

    What it should do is "provoke" the Black people of that city to boycott that Wal-Mart store and any others in the city.


    You get some 'taintion when you hit 'em in the pocket.

    True...that's probably why they feel they have free reign to ridicule and exploit Black people monetarily, simultaneously...because they know that alot of us don't have the collective economic clout to boycott their establishments, and 'get by' comfortably...we'll go back to them despite the abuse and disrespect, because we rely too heavily on their services, smh...:10500:

    Hotep :)

    And that's the issue.....Too many of us have become complacent.

    When our people walked instead of riding a bus in Montgomery, AL, we showed them that we were not that "heavily" dependent upon their services.

    Either that person who made this announcement was a store employee, a former employee, or was a customer who was allowed entrance to that area by a store employee.

    Surely, Wal-Mart aint the only store in that city or area with the same items.

    Surely, it would not kill the Black people in that city to drive a little further for their food and/or household items.

    This isn't about Wal Mart, this is about some fool who thought it would piss black people off to do what he did as a joke. He was right, you guys are mad and he's loling and so are the rest of the people who think like him. STOP GIVING THESE TYPE OF PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT!!

    We stand by idly while our own people destroy ourselves and our communities say things like "stop hating, don't snitch, people get shot in my hood all the time, it's normal etc." those things are another way of saying "I'm ok with it or just look the other way." Not all of us think this but too many do and we need to focus on US, not them.

    chile please....

    while you all are running your already high blood pressure up, your kid is watching......um, wait....

    YOU are prolly watching some rap video from the dirty south, or wherever a mouthful of pot metal is deemed attractive and a sign of affluence;

    in these videos, a person of color, male, educated yes, learned no, with everything from hat to shoes on backward, is standing in front of a leased panaflex camera,

    holding YOUR money in his paws, referring to your daughter as the unhygienic offspring of man's best friend, and taking evey opportunity to direct your gaze to his crotch, while he attempts to projectile expectorate on your person...through the camers.

    you listen to him like he's the son of reverend Ike; the brother of louis farrakhan.

    True, but on an empathic note, it cannot have been a pleasant experience for the affected shoppers at the time...at all...
