This is a ridiculous story
first it's these kind of distractions media love's to swarm around as a way to "act responsible" by reporting about seemingly significant events while not calling out real institutional racism. This only furthers the notion within white society that racism is about colorism alone and lone gunmen. As all should acknowledge that this would likely surprise anyone, particularly disturbing to any person of color hearing it through an unexpected channel as this Wal Mart intercom.
In the larger picture of corporate dominance, this incident is a gnat and Wal Mart is an elephant. Will this keep people from shopping at Wal Mart? Of course not! People find great comfort in forgetting and great addiction in bargain shopping.
With the amount of really extreme issues on the block, this article comes like tabloid
the joker who is responsible for this act doesn't deserve the attention IMHO
