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.

STFU. If a black supervisor allegedly did these things to you we all know you'd do the same thing. An employee came to the supervisor with a concern about racist or discrimination and it wasn't taken seriously. think the next time an employee says something like this it will be taken care of correctly. you want to make this an issue of the "white race being abolished" Get The F@#$^Out of Here. Sounds like you the one playing the race card. Like that can ever happen. we've been mixing it up since the beginning of time. I mean seriously, you didn't go to college, am I right?

The NAACP isn't the phrase colored people a sensitivity issue? They should change their name. Did he have jeans and a white tshirt? We are the minorities now.

ITS NOT ABOUT A RACE CARD, ITS NOT ABOUT OBAMA...THIS IS ABOUT BEING AT WORK AND BEING SUBJECT TO RACIALLY-OFFENSIVE WORDS..."CRACKIN THE WHIP" HAS A LOT MORE SIGNIFICANCE THAN JUST 3 WORDS..THAT IS A HISTORICALLY RACIST STATEMENT..AND SHOULD BE CONSIDERED IN-APPROPIATE AT THE WORKPLACE.

Why is it always some black person that wants to sue? How many white folks were passed over to give Mr. Osley a job? Is there a community organizer in the house?

Advance Auto is a racist workplace. I work in heavily hispanic store, and you know what? They will not hire you if you do not speak spanish. There are no white people working at my store. They have transfered to another store, or quit. The blacks are being fired for nothing. If your not spanish at my store you have no pull, and no future.

jEWS WERE BEATEN BY THE EGYPTIANS,WHITE CHRISTIAN WERE BEATEN BY THE ROMANS,AND THE JEWS.bLACKS WERE BEATEN BY WHITES.So crackin the whip is a universal phrase inwhich pretty much every race can relate.
Like my granddad use to say everyone takes a beaten in one form or another it's picking yourself back up that's the hard part.

Truth:

There is a movement to increase the amount of Spanish-speaking employees each annual year. I know this because they hired a spanish-speaking person at my store. The problem is- this individual has limited English skills. I admire this person's work ethic, but it is difficult for customers. Also this brings out the racist customer frequently. The company is looking to make a buck from the rising hispanic population, whether a citizen or not. Shameful.

I found out a few days ago that Martin Luther King Jr was a republican and that most black people don't want to talk about it? Is this really true? Makes a huge difference of the new generation of democratic blacks
