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.

Maybe they ran out of the white ornaments? I saw some black toppers and black Santa but there was a good mix between the black and white ones. I would try going to a different store.

Its kinda like that in the city I live in. We have a "black Walmart" that you won't catch me in and the other 5 walmarts are you know. I just chimmed in because until you read the responses Op's post sounds a little one-sided until you get the real reason she left.

Quoting redhead-bedhead:

We have 2 on the same road that are 5 miles apart. The one that i south has more AA toys but the other one carries more white things.



Quoting sexychica25:

I would love to know what Walmart that was, because its always the exact opposite in the store I visit. ~shrug~

Right. I don't care how many Aferican American ones there were, I just wish they had a selection that I could have picked from also.

Maybe this is a silly question but if having an angel on top of the tree is so important to you then why can't it be an African American one?

You. I would have gathered the stuff I could and move to the next store.

I wonder if African American people have ever felt this way when walking though a store and seeing all the Caucasian things. 

Like when looking for a baby doll that looks like their dd, but all they find are blonde blue eyed ones.
