Auto Zone on S. 4th St. in Allentown is 100% spanish speaking. I stopped going there when they could no longer help me in English. In fact, I stopped shopping Auto Zone stores..

Advance Auto,National Auto,Pep Boys, The list goes on & on! I stopped at the junkyard next to Congress apts. for a gas cap last week. For my 2005 Jeep Liberty (That im still paying on). Not only was I carded but stamped and followed around by 2 Hispanic employees. I asked my buddy to pass me a screwdriver through the fence. Yes I needed a screwdiver to undo the connector from the body to the cap. The guy grabbed it out of my hands and escorted me to the door. He said I was trying to steal somthing! I guess they all think the same? How can you not have at least some racist thoughts/urges when people of the same race dont trust each other! Oh yeah dont touch the fence! Thats pretty bad when ya have to lock up junk cars!

The Auto Zone in Great Bridge is pretty good. They all speak English and there's a hottie that works behind the counter.

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.
Evidently places like this attract lower class people as yourself who assume that people in the automotive parts industry are lower class. That shows your education level and ability to reason in general. I work for Advance as a manager and can assure you your comment is way out of line and worthless to even print. Your breed must be Mutt.....

When you don't like the atmosphere of a particular establishment, or their work policies, STOP SHOPPING/WORKING THERE!!! Eventually, they will have to shut down and EVERYONE will be looking for another job.

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
Hey Welfare is this about color all types are on it.
Gang Violence is not due to race last time i check all colors was on it.
Loud Rap Music you need to drive around your city and wake up all colors are playing it.
Inflated School taxes public system has all races in it.
You need to be more aware of life and go to church you need to pray dude. You are a system mathic problem Wille Linch must have been your best book when you were growing up.

This is true! If you did not speak Spanish you were not even called in for a interview at Allentown/Hazleton..Advance just removed your application! Without notice!

I worked @ Kutztown, Pa Advanced.Auto and yes they are VERY racist! If you don't speak spanish (I do not) and especially if you aren't Dominican, they don't like you.All the supervisors are Latin except for 1, she is white and always being called racist and if/when they hire someone who is black, they always fined a reason to let them go. I got sick of the b.s. and quit. GM/ Columbian, Assistant GM was white, got fired.
