Wal-Mart Complaint - Wal-Mart employee in BLACK face @ work
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- This evening I saw an Wal-Mart employee walk around the store, talking to other employees, laughing in giggling in BLACK FACE. No one called the store manger which is ironic since he had informed her earlier that her costume was offensive to some of their customers.
After realizing the situation, and playing ignorant, the Head Cashier decided to play diplomat. She tried to empathize but didn't see the outrage of the situation. She instead thought that I was over reacting ... None of the minorities who saw her were in a fit ... just me. What was wrong with me was the look in her face. When two other customers demanded to speak with the Store manger panic replaced the clueless stare. These other customers were minorities and she was scared.
The Store manger gave all of us, the three outraged customers, the evening history... the demand that she wash her face before starting her shift and the information that she had left. He seemed surprised that she had returned and was genuinely shocked and panicked called from his employees.
