There were a few places I worked at such a phrase would have been high praise.

It seems the only race that is discriminated against are the whites. Have you ever been in one of those places (at least Allentown) If you don't speak spanish you are SOL.

Given the type of people that wait on me when I visit Advance....this story doesn't surprise me one bit.

This goes for other auto parts stores too....they attract a lower breed of the white man.

come on, why is it that any minority can arbitrarily decide when something is offensive to their race?

it's only going to get worse too until people put their foot down. and it has to start with judges and juries!

as a white male, i'm going to tell you some words that i find equally offensive, and if you are any minority, and use them in my presence, i will sue you:

welfare

gang violence

loud rap music

inflated school taxes

Another BS lawsuit that should of been shot down.
Advanced Auto off Rt 863 is mostly minority. I think the Asst General Manager should sue the black guy and advanced auto too then.

I AM SO SICK OF THIS RACE CARD. There is no race card anymore. Look around a little. We are all going to be one color in a few years. I have a neighbor who will not obey to the local laws cause he says he's being discriminated against and he will SUE. Well looking at 3+ foot weeds and junk cars, I think is a little over the top when my property is beautifully landscaped. WAKE UP GOVERNMENT PEOPLE!! By 2025 the white race will be the minority. I am not a racist and I have friends of every color, but some people take it too far.

food for thought:
how many DUI's are Blacks?
Very very few.
Why?
Because the police are afraid to pull them over and being accused of racial profiling.
Crack the whip is not a racial slur and even if his boss was a red neck racist, fight your own battle and move on.
Be a man.
Enough with the BS lawsuit.
Whose discriminated against? Catholics. People over 40. Lots of people that cannot run up lawsuits every time they don't like the way they are treated. Ugly people and fat people are discriminated against too.

he should have robbed the guy or murdered him so the punishment would be more lenient (sic.) just like the minorities do to whites as well as themselves
