Wayne Hipple and Carl Cain are liars and cheat employees at Dollar Tree. If you have been a victim or know of someone, please tell them about this posting so that they can join the lawsuits against them.

I have a female friend that was hired there as an assistant who recently quit. She was lied to about the position by Wayne and she found out that there is a guy that works at the store on broadway was supposed to be a manager and he was lied to by wayne and carl. I saw his paystud and they are paying him 16 dollars an hour. Now, they know he is gay and are not going to give him a store and are trying to get rid of him too.

i would like to find out more about this. i know someone who currently works there and has filed with the hrc of lexington, unfortunately after months of filings no results. i am also aware of others in the same position. and from my understanding currently the store on broadway is the only store left in this district where there are openly gay and minority employees are left on the payroll. so if you wouldn't mind informing me where to send my friends i would appreciate it.

WTF is this mess?? There are also 2 other Dollar Trees in Lexington. The one on Broadway is not the only one.

There is a Dollar Tree on Maple Leaf Drive (Off-Man-O-War near Todds Rd) and another one off Pimlico Parkway (located in the shopping center)

There are blacks working at the one on Pimlico. I have been there several times recently and saw so with my own beautiful browns.

As Nicci said, true.

BUT,.. that makes it an issue of personal interaction, not business practice. The business hired Cain, he is black, ergo the business did not practice racism.

As for the gay bias, I don't buy that either,.. I know of at least one employee that is gay, they do not feel prejudiced against.

Perhaps you have personal reasons for being upset with the stores. Lose a job there? If not, what could your rational be?

You really have to give specific examples to get support on this issue. A blanket or generalized accusation is worthless, all it does is call question to your motives.

Carl Cain is my uncle and yes he is black and no he would never discriminate against blacks and no he would never discriminate against gays because we have a couple of gay people in our family...so sorry that you feel that way...

Odd, one main managers came from Deals is gay and there was a black gay dude at Maple Leaf I think it was, so where is the discrimination?

What's wrong with discriminating against gays? We would be better off if there were more of it.

Hey Blaster, this is an old thread and I was surprised when it prompted back up on my reply lists.

You know we can't condone prejudice of one sort without losing the battle against other kinds. It's like that old poem, "When they came for the jews I was not a jew so I did not speak out", etc thru other groups, it ends by saying, "When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out."

If we don't defend the right of humanity for all humanity, we lose our own humanity.

I've seen a couple of your postings. I look forward to reading more.

Peace out.

But we are not talking about a racial or ethnic group -- rather we are talking about a group who promotes aberrant sexual practices. Perhaps we should not discriminate against those who openly practice bestiality?

No Blaster, we're talking about people born different thru no fault or choice of their own. We're also talking about dividing lines in society that can get radical if unchecked. Differences sparking bias can narrow and channel when given free rein. Sounds impossible to you maybe, but if all religion, politics, skin color and sexuality were the same, the tendency to draw prejudice could move to hair color, length, or style. It could define socially acceptable equality to weight, height, age, etc. The list is endless. East end, west end, upper, outer, inner city residence. See what I mean?

As long as people live a life that imposes no harm on other life or lives, we should live and let live. That's what a free society is based on,.. human right to dignity and equal opportunity.

Now the beastiality point has come up before and I will state again, "Beastiality is not a sexual orientation, it's a learned and chosen behavior that is forced upon an innocent victim.
It's predatory."

It's a store where everything is priced one dollar. A fun shopping place.

I know a pastors wife at the Dollar tree in Anniston Alabama. She is heavier than the rest of them. But she works and does her job real well. They discriminate against her in front of her face,behind her back, in front of customers, and in front of other employees. The first day she was there, I over-heard a male supervisor critize her for being "slow". That was her first day there, she hasn't had time to learn anything. I have been talking to her trying to convince her to file a lawsuit against them.

She is the nicest person you ever want to meet and she don't mind working and it shows. She knows how to talk and treat the customers who come through her line. She ask if they found everything they need, she counts back the money, smiles and looks them in the eye, and she is honest.

But her bosses, one who is black starts it. Simply because she don't look or act like anyone else that is there. And I am glad she don't. But you can tell she is tired of them. She is a pastors wife and she wants to keep a good testimony in front of customers and not act like her so-called bosses who really need to be fired.

The idea of their having no choice is not proven, only a tactic for people (such as yourself) to try and shame others into believing the practice is acceptable within a society (and this nation consists of many differing societies).

As for discrimination, it is more a culture issue than physical differences. I, for one, cannot MOONWALK, so naturally I envy the black man.

Size and weight, even one's meals, are now deciding factors in discrimination.

Not proven, but more proven than the choice answer. Again, you must ask yourself if such a "choice" is possible, reasonable, or socially advantagous,.. then ask yourself why any one would choose such a social stigma/handicap.

The avenues of discrimination are unlimited, I agree and even said so in post #17. I do find it interesting that you mentioned the emerging bias against personal choice in diets. It amazes me that folks assume to decide what is or isn't the right "moral" food for others. It also amazes me that folks think they can decide the gender attraction for others on a morality basis.

My own sense of morality dictates what's wrong for me may be right for others. Vice/versa. I rely on the "no harm, no foul," in judging the moral right of others.
