Okay, I get the boycotting, but one of the husbands called the police. Why? It said they were looking into as a hate crime. My thing is, what was the crime?

At the end of the interview, they said they want justice and the person prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Prosecuted for what?

Trust me ....no ones boycotting that fucking zoo. This Wally word is literally 45 seconds from my house, it's a god damn circus in there. I guarantee whoever said that will be there next week shopping. I try to only go on off hours, anytime in the morning or after 8pm. Any other time it's not even worth it. I'm just glad I wasn't in the store when that was said...talk about an awkward moment lol

People are so fraken sensitive these days. They get offended over just about anything. This story made me chuckle a little bit to myself, though. And I guarantee you that if the dude had said "All white people must leave the store." It would be little more than a little blurb on the bottom of the screen at Fox News.

You sir are correct. I don't think white people get offended when "white" remarks are made (it's actually funny), but god damn if a black comment is made, fuckin World War III

You can guarantee that if someone had announced for all "white people". People would have laughed and no one would be upset.

What a joke.
Exactly.

Not to mention the double standards of racism. Black people can make fun of themselves AND white people, and it's not supposed to be a problem. Yet if a white person says ANYTHING, people play the race card.

And yet again, I'm reminded of why I hate people. WTB private island...

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) -- 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."
Dalton said the case would be handled in juvenile court in neighboring Atlantic County, where the boy lives. He would not say whether the boy has a criminal record, citing the teen's age, and would not disclose the teen's race, saying that did not factor into the investigation.
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 they 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. Some community members said Saturday that they've heard reports of similar incidents happening at the store in recent months that were not reported to police.
"We are concerned about that, and we're looking into these incidents. We want to work with the community to make sure these types of incidents don't happen," said Loretta Winters, president of the Gloucester County chapter of the NAACP.
Winters said she hopes the boy will get counseling and be educated about sensitivity so he can understand the consequences of his actions.
"I'm assuming this person didn't realize how hurtful his comments were," she said.
Officials for Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said the announcement was "unacceptable," and Dalton praised the company for its strong cooperation in the investigation.
"We're pleased this matter is resolved," Walmart spokesman David Tovar said in a statement issued after the news conference. "We have updated our intercom system at this store to prevent this from happening again. We again apologize to all of our customers and associates who had to listen to something so offensive."
The incident 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.
Hmmm....
