Arrested? That sounds a little extreme. Any word on what kind of charges this person is facing?

He should be fired, but not arrested. It was bad misjudgement and hey, it could have possibly been a customer playing around. But as far as I know there isn't a crime against saying something stupid... It was stupid but not illegal.

Nevermind, we are all wrong. NJ does have crimes against intimidation and harrassment based on race/religion/gender ect.

How would white people feel if blacks constantly degrade them? Enough is enough. People do get tire of being degraded. Personally that's one of the reason blacks act the way they do because of white people and it goes back to the slavery days.

Blacks degrade white people every day the media only covers the blacks side of it. You can degrade a white and its not racial but you degrade a black the whole world goes berserk.Sounds a little one sided to me,

It was a 16 year old kid that picked up a courtesy phone. So it was a prank. It will blow over shortly. Just a teenager being dumb.

I'm sure the boy thought it was a big joke, and he phrased the request politely, you can tell he wasn't raised by a redneck from Mississippi.

He will probably get twenty years for a hate crime.

Were YOU a slave? MY family never owned any! You are typical of those who are LOOKING for ANY reason to complain (always),
& feel that EVERYBODY will ALWAYS owe you something, which you DO NOT deserve. Thank GOD not all Black people are this foolish.
All anybody has to do is use logic; judge EACH person on their OWN merit.

Just fired this guy and call it a day. This is 2010 and I would be more concern if any black people actually left the store when this was said. lol, I hope not. New Jersey has a lot of crime and anything is possible there. There is bigger fish to fry.

for this to be a hate crime there would have had to have been a crime commited. How was this a crime? stupid yes, but exactly what charges should he be brought up on? This one stupid comment does not constitute harrasement or intimidation.

It was a kid messing around. This has been highly overplayed.
