What I'd like to know is how are those who took offense to this racist act the punch line? I mean, if the situation was reversed I think most white people would take offense as well. So, how is it that those who are now boycotting suddenly the people in the wrong here? Granted, as I understand the situation it wasn't Walmart's fault, but the incident happened in one of their stores so they have to take responsibility for it, right or wrong. Regardless, how are those who are boycotting that or any other Walmart store now in the wrong for showing their displeasure for standig up against a racist act?
Overkill? Maybe...but that still doesn't place the victims of racism in the wrong.
