Everyday racism: Your stories
Walmart Employee Posts Picture of Muslim Customers on Facebook with Racist Caption
I was personally offended as I am not only Muslim but also a frequent customer at the Walmart in Hamburg, NY. I may not dress as they do in the picture, but it is hurtful to see this. The friend of mine who shared the picture, went to Walmart and showed the picture to a manager, they said that "its being investigated” Although, the post clearly has the employee's name next to it. It doesn't matter what your religious beliefs are, no one should have to worry about employees taking pictures of them and posting it online with cruel words. It's racist and frankly not professional.
