"..Bill Mitchell, a former Walmart employee who was shopping yesterday at the store, said that he was saddened to hear about the announcement but that "as a black man, I've heard worse things." ** Hmmm.. former employee? familiar with location and function of comm devices? Perhaps disgruntled? Bitter?..or just a random prankster trying stupidly to capitalize on the history of "racial strife" as reported in this story. In either case, it's not a reflection on Wal Mart, though I would rarely be caught jumping to their defense. I knew as soon as I read the headline to this story that it would be far less outrageous than its purposefully misleading intent.
