Listen very carefully, regardless to the fact racism and discrimination exist, white people don't want blacks to talk about it because they are afraid you will do something about it if you talk about it too much, also white people fail to understand that it shows how much of an idiot they are when they try to bring up other blacks indiscretions when one black person speaks of an injustice or personal hurt or attack on themselves or their family, white people say stupid things such as " why haven't we heard anything about Al Sharp ton lately" we all know that has nothing to do with the price of tea in China, it exists( racism) I have a friend who wanted to do extra work for the holiday's to put money aside he went to a site that loads Xmas trees. The redneck that was there hiring said to him and his friend if your not voting for Mc Cain don't waste your time I won't hire you and then this idiot asked them ďwho are you voting forĒ and then he stated "everyone else stay here for work (all white) you O' bama boys I'll give you a call." there are so many other incidents that are happening now showing Black people exactly how racist whites are. If you are not a white racist, which is not the majority you donít need to comment Iím sure if your white and you have a negative comment itís because your racist and you donít want to admit it because then no one will listen to what you have to say.

To all blacks be aware and start to do something about this no more complaining just do what is needed to be done to end this back and forth tension between blacks and whites, black people have come a long way even though white people try to hold them back every chance, so imagine if blacks didn't have the racism and discrimination factor, so again come together and uplift one another and stop complaining to deaf ears.

Just watch the news good example the white chick that said a black man branded her face with the letter B because she was voting for Mc Cain, she lied as usual and you would have to ask yourself why? But I donít have to ask that question because I know the answer.

Oh, poor Winn Dixie! I hope the lawsuit is successful. Let's get real, Winn Dixie is a huge corporation, offering a service. I am a frequent customer of Winn Dixe. Ironically, I was just there and had my own personal check turned down, for no apparent reason other than a "computer glich." I have written checks there before, at the exact same location. "White Winn Dixie." So here I was, 2 full shopping carts full of food, a long line behind me, and a check being turned down for $300.00. The account it was written from had more than enough funds to cover that amount. Why a check you ask? I have credit cards, but I purposely am choosing not to use them, unless absolutely necessary to better monitor my finances, and avoid going into debt. All Winn Dixie has to do is put into place a set of mandatory rules for check writing at every store, ethnic location or not. For example, in order to write checks, each customer must have filled out the savings card application. They must have a valid I.D., and phone # on the check that matches the savings card application. Any bounced checks that were still open, or not paid by the payee, would be kept on site to avoid repeat offenses. I can honestly say that I now know what it must feel like to be looked at like a theif or ethnic person. There was no reason for Winn Dixie to treat me the way they did if they had simple rules in place regarding the writing of checks. It is unreasonable to blame a certain group of people for the bounced checks written to Winn Dixe. Winn Dixie should be blaming themselves for not doing what is necessary to make sure every store, and every clerk follows the same routine for allowing the writing of checks. I hope they pay up in this lawsuit and can then put their "CEO THINKING CAPS" on.

You're a fool and a liar.

Remember Tawanna Brawley? Remember lying stripper in the Duke case? I could go on, but I won't. No one ethnic group has a monopoly on bigotry and lying.

The check acceptance rules at each store apply to all shoppers. Winn-Dixie also has white shoppers, brown shoppers, etc., and all are treated as equals when it comes to paying with a check. ID must be shown, and the check is run through the machine for an authorization code.

If these people have checking accounts, why don't they use a debit card?

FIRST OF ALL--
I dont care what color you are, you should by now in society have a DEBIT CARD or credit card.#2,if you write a bad check it is impossible to find someone make it good.
#3 IF someone writes a check, half the time its stolen, or whoever worte it doesnt have any ID or knows they dont have any money in the bank when they write it.I cant blame themIf I had been a customer for 20 years and had always given a check and never had one bounce , yes, I would take the check. but some scumbag that walks in off the street, NO I WOULDNT TAKE IT.
BLACK OR WHITE---------GET A DEBIT CARD.. that will tel the store if you haveMONEY OR NOT or even OWN the account. If your a thief, you dont deserve to buy anything anyway

They just ought to use Certigy. For a fee, Certigy assumes the risk, and declines checks from those who make it a practive to write no-good checks.

sharpton & jackson have been told by obama's handlers to keep their mouth shut until after the election.


This comment is so stupid like why do white people still carry on with these racist comments. Blacks have come a long way and some are even your own bosses. You can not put blacks in one category because if you wanted to do that you mines well say all whites are dirty rednecks. Why is the world full of ignorant people??

Just another frivolous lawsuit and the usual game of pin the tail on the honky! Is it any wonder that most large chains will not open stores in black neighborhoods? High crime rates, theft and lawsuits like this one are the reason. If a store gets a high rate of bad checks it is just good business not to accept checks anymore. I hope Winn-Dixie fights this and does not settle with these extortionists!
