Witches' Brew: Somebody At This Walmart Is Not Feeling The Coloreds

Somebody At This Walmart Is Not Feeling The Coloreds


Walmart is investigating an incident at a store in Washington Township, NJ after someone got on the PA system and ordered black people to leave the store.

It happened Sunday night in the southern New Jersey Walmart. A male voice got on the overhead address system and “calmly” announced: "Attention Walmart customers: All black people leave the store now."

A manager jumped on the line and apologized for the announcement. It’s not clear just who made the announcement, a worker or a customer.  The corporate office calls the remark "unacceptable" and they’re looking into how it happened. Walmart has had a history of controversy when it comes to worker pay, women’s rights and some racist incidents, but the NAACP says the store is making strides in diversity.

I don’t know if I’m more shocked at the blatant racism or that people still shop at Walmart. #TeamTarget

Reggie: Walmart is for the hicks in the rest of Amreeeka. We NYers don't have Walmarts. You wouldn't catch me dead there ANYWAY!

I really wish I could've been there to check the shoppers reactions.

What aisle did the first "OH HAYELL NAWL" come from? My guess is somewhere in the clothing section, either the children's section or the underwear.
