    Well...I suppose I shall have to wait.

    But I was so looking forward to an explanation of how I am wrong.

    Seriously.

    I could be, but I can’t see where as of this moment.

    Nope, I didn't find this "prank" to be funny at all.

    I mean, after all, if an entire race of human beings are "the most racist people out there", in your opinion... it must make you feel kind of warm and tingly inside to see them get their comeuppance, eh? To see them publicly humiliated?

    Make no mistake: this was humiliating.

    Black people are a minority in this country.
    I have no idea the situation in New Jersey, but where I live, there are probably even fewer black people than the national average.
    In a Walmart on a crowded day, there might be one or two black individuals or families. There might be none.

    Now think about being that minority.
    Think about what you'd feel like if you were one of only two white people shopping in a large discount store where all the other shoppers were black.
    Imagine that an announcement was suddenly broadcast throughout the store, instructing all white people to leave.
    Half the people in the store burst out braying like donkeys (but only because of the "absurdity", wink-wink, nudge-nudge).
    How do you feel?
    Probably like a giant spotlight's suddenly been turned on you.
    Everybody's eyeballing you to see what your reaction will be.
    You don't know what to do. Leave, certainly. But you've got to get to the door first, and it's a long, long walk, through all that braying and smirking.
    You're confused. Who all was in on this? All the braying jack-asses? Was this the work of one disturbed individual? If so, why the f' is everybody laughing? If you have your children with you, you're fluctuating between anger and fear. Should you complain to a manager? But whoever did this obviously works here. Would it do any good?

    Are you able to imagine that? Being the only white in a store full of blacks and having an announcement come over the intercom instructing all white people to leave the store?

    Well, if you can, congratulations. You have a good imagination.
    But you still don't know what black people in that store felt like, because in your imaginary scenario, you can still walk out of the offending store and blend effortlessly back into a nation- a culture, a society- where your race comprises not only the majority, but also the power structure.

    And that is not something a black person in this country can ever, ever do.
    Why are you making black people out to be the victims?

    True enough.

    So because you know some racist blacks, we all must be much more racist than anyone else?
    Blacks are much more prone to express racism. It doesn't mean all blacks are racist or that no whites are racist. It just means that blacks express racism more than whites. Ever hear of the denigration of a "white man's education"? How ****ing ignorant and stupid.

    When I was in elementary school through the mid to late 1960's the only blacks I remember being taught about were Crispus Attucks, Benjamin Banneker, George Washington Carver and Constance Baker Motley. At home I knew few more famous blacks like Willie Mays, Nat King Cole and Lena Horne, but I new what they did not seem very important. In school only the three dead ones that the teachers seemed to hold in any esteem or even mention. Crispus died for freedom; George did many things with peanuts; Benjamin drew plans for constructing the nation's capitol and made a clock, while Ms. Motley became a federal judge. That was it! Anybody else who did anything great or important was white.

    It was not until the mid 1070's and early 1980's any kind of history included the contributions of Africans and Chinese to Mathematics, Egyptians to agriculture etc. Even in regular school subjects it was said the Greeks pretty much invented everything.

    You wonder why this is siad now?

    Welcome to my world.

    But I also think that ugly people often choose to keep themselves that way. As anyone who knows me could tell you, my scale of good looking people is quite wide. I find about 90% of the population attractive. Its only when people make no effort, which appeared to me to be the case of the people that I saw in Wal-Mart.
    Problem in the US in general is the large number of people who are overweight and obese. Though, from my experience, I would say the BMI of the average Wal Mart customer is even higher than the already obsenly high BMI of the average American.

    Sweet jesus people are far too easily offended.
    Should have just said "Everyone with a BMI over 25, leave the store." They could then simply close the store down for lack of customers.

    The working class and poor are statistically more overweight than the affluent.
    They also comprise the majority of Walmart shoppers.
    Therefore, it makes sense that there would be more obesity among Walmart shoppers than among the gen-pop.

    That flies in the face of the experience I had living in Georgia. I went to grad school and taught high school there. The races were far more (self-)segregated than I ever saw growing up in the northeast.

    Yeah, it sure is "one of the great myths"- one of the great Southern myths, that is- and it pre-dates the Civil Rights era.
    The great myth of Jim Crow was that blacks were complicit in their own oppression.
