J.C. Penney Company, Inc. Complaint - Overheard Employees Calling Store Manager A Racist!!
I was traveling through a small town, dublin ga and decided to go to the local mall. I went to jc penny, one of my favorite stores and was shopping and all of a sudden I overheard a young store employee talking to another young store employee and they were talking about how racist their manager is. They said that the manager only spy on people of color and allow the white customers to roam around the store freely. They even said that the employees know that hes racist and they are afraid to voice their opions for fear of being fired. I was shocked!!! To know that a store such jc penny where I spend a lot of my money just as my family and friends do would allow a manager to supervise a store that dislike not only people of color patrons but the employees as well was more than I could digest. I wanted to confront this manager but did not because I did not want the young employees to get fired. I did notice that this same manager came up to one of the employees and asked what one of the patrons purchased, she told him and then he said that he thought he saw the boy put something in his pocket. The boy was of color and I saw no such thing. What I did see was three white girls moving around the jewlery counter and putting arizon jewlery in their pockets and no one even noticed. This manager was following around the people of color while these white girls were stealing the store blind. I have to admit that I did question one of the employees which was the white employee about what I overheard and she told me that he does not like people of color and does not treat his employees of color the same as the other employees. Again I was shocked!! Although this store is not in a major city, located between macon ga and savannah ga, to know that jc penny allow this type of behavior from a manager is unforgivable. I talked to several of my church members and they want to stage a protest when we come back through travelling to see relatives again. Somebody needs to know that a store where people of color spend their hard earned money is treated like common criminals because of a racist manager. If anyone has shopped in this store and encountered his manager, please speak out!!!!
