REALLY WALMART!? *EDIT*

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

My family and I live in a town down south that has a mix of Caucasian and African Americans. The majority of the people living here are African American. WELL, we went to walmart last night to get our tree decorations, stockings, etc. We went down the aisle that had the tree toppers so I could pick out an angel. The whole aisle had Angel, Santa, and a few other various toppers. There were at least 8-10 different African American Angels, with some African American Santas and Jesus as well. There was 1 Caucasian Angel topper and it was not what I was looking for, there weren't even any Caucasian Santas >:( I am SO mad at walmart right now. I don't care how many African American Angels, Santa's, etc. there are but PLEASE have a few that I can choose from as well!!! So to my question, do any of you ladies recommend anyone online to get decorations from? We live and a small town and if kmart doesn't have one were sol, since that is the only other store like that, that we have here. Thanks!!!



I think it is ridiculous that some people are acting like I am wrong for being upset. I just had someone call me a racist??? Really?! I am far from a racist. People are saying Oh well I'm sure African Americans have felt that way, etc. Ok, but THEY WOULD HAVE EVRY RIGHT TO BE AGGITADED AS WELL! I don't seem to be allowed though. My post was NOT made to be a mean racist post. I was sharing the experience I had at walmart last night and asking if anyone could recommend a good online store. I am so mad that I can't say ANYTHING anymore without being called racist. Jeeze. AGAIN, THIS IS NOT A RASICT POST SO GET OVER YOURSELVES. 


ALSO


I left walmart not ONLY because of there being no caucasian Tree Toppers. We had a buggy with various decorations. We weren't able to even find everything we needed and there was of course NO ONE working the lawn and garden section. We get up front to pay and buy a real tree, and we are told we can NOT buy a real tree up front, we HAVE to purchase it in the Lawn and Garden section, with a non existent cashier?! DH and I both at that point were mad, we didn't buy anything, we left our buggy and headed home. Is that a problem?? Some people seem to think so. Smh.

Quoting ablessedlife:

I can understand why people think you are racist. You have (eventually) stated that there were other things about the store that you were disappointed about. But for some reason you chose only to report on the AA angels. That was the one thing that you thought was worthy to report. That is why there is suspicion among readers.

Well, I think it is very sad that I can't make a statement about being aggravated there were no white Angels there without being called racist. It really is. I NEVER put down any other race, I was NEVER negative towards ANY ONE because of their race, etc. I find it crazy that that would qualify me as a racist. Definitely walking on egg shells these days, no one can say anything without the race card being pulled and it's sickening. I am definitely not a racist, I just wanted a white tree topper, sue me.

EXACTLY. I have gotten SO much heat from people telling me that that is how Black people must feel all the time, blah blah blah... I have just been kindly telling them that there should be a selection for ALL races. I think people are taking it the wrong way, I don't care how many Black Angels are there, I was impressed by the selection they had to choose from, I just think there should be a mix for everyone.

I don't understand how Wal-Mart lacking selection makes you a racist at all.
