Wal-Mart NJ: “All black people leave the store now”

We have recently learnt that shoppers were stunned by what they heard on a PA in Wal-Mart NJ. According to the Guardian the public address said, ”All black people leave the store now.” This has shocked me just reading about it, but to actually be there must have been like stepping back in time.

Walmart and other high-profile organizations would never condone such behavior; as a result the retail giant has now launched a full investigation. One shopper said it was “appalling, stupid and sad.”

The report states that it was a male voice that made the racist announcement in the store in Washington Township New Jersey. Wal-Mart officials have issued an apology for the incident, saying that it was “unacceptable”.
