Good for you, Fayeangela. No job is worth putting up with racist sacks of horse excretement like that piece of trash.

If I had a business, I would hire you.

Stupid on both of those parts. The black chick just fueled the stereotype fire that an African American will resort to violence.

However, black, white or green if someone was screwing with me like that they would get ***** slapped too.

Sometimes, I think the only reason the YDR prints stories such as this in such great detail is to fuel racial tension. I guess it still sells newspapers, considering the area. I'm just wondering, had this been two white women, would it have even been news?

@ hmmmm - would there even be a story if it were two white women?

what the one said to the other "you can't do your job because you're white"?

That doesn't make sense...

"Mitchell has no prior criminal record. Tillman has a previous disorderly conduct conviction."

As soon as Mitchell "stepped around the counter", she started the fight. I was in retail for decades; the moment you take anything said to you personally, you just lost.

I understand than again I don,t what is the big deal if someone calls you names, be the bigger one and learn how to just walk away, its less trouble. GOD ONLY KNOWS THE REASON FOR SOME PEOPLE THAT GET OFF BY CALLING PEOPLE BLACK.

I'm a 63 year old white man. My hats off to. The black lady for standing her ground. I bet the white lady she could get away with anything she wanted to say because she was the customer and the clerk wouldn't come out like she did. Ha, ha fooled you

Someone should have told Ms. Mitchell the race card does not work every time with the fickle media.
You need to have some kind of rebellion/protest to get the press to pay attention to you now. A mere accusation of racism will not work. Not lead material plain and simple.

How can a judge give the white lady a $150 with a prior record and the black lady can't even get ARD let alone a fine herself. That means you hot a bias judge as well

Fayeangela, I applaud you for standing up against a very ignorant person...and thankfully she does not represent all white people. I am sure if she addressed me with a racial slur I would not have taken it so well either. That being said...I think we have to rise above the ignorance of others.

To Ms. Tillman--God is watching.

That is the way our justice system works around this part of the country. There is no shame about about it. Think about who elects these judges. The people that think and feel the same way as the judges in these parts. Just saying.

Wow I wonder which Walmart. If it is printed I can't read it because YDR blocked it so I online subscribe. Now all that being said. People really get riled up about their insurance and take it out on the cashier or Pharm Tech just because they are handling the transaction or doing as the computer states.. Like they can do anything about it. They look at the cashier like they are idiots and don't know how to do their jobs.
Believe me I like most of us I have been the customer and been rejected by insurance or told a high price while standing on this side of the counter. It is becoming more and more the norm since big insurance companies adversary control our health and well being. So some begrudging or frustrated customers shot the messenger.

The customer got what she deserved....her insurance discount, and a good slap up alongside her bigot head. Perhaps it knocked some sense into her...but I doubt it.

I think crazy's post sums it up. It appears that Tillman has a history of bad behavior and an elitist attitude. Both people used bad behavior and help to propel racial stereotypes in both cases.
