WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) --

A Walmart store announcement ordering black people to leave brought chagrin and apologies Wednesday from leaders of the company, which has built a fragile trust among minority communities.

A male voice came over the public-address system Sunday evening at a store in Washington Township, in southern New Jersey, and calmly announced: "Attention, Walmart customers: All black people, leave the store now."

Shoppers in the store at the time said a manager quickly got on the public-address system and apologized for the remark. And while it was unclear whether a rogue patron or an employee was responsible for the comment, many customers expressed their anger to store management.
"I want to know why such statements are being made, because it flies in the face of what we teach our children about tolerance for all," said Sheila Ellington, who was in the store at the time with a friend. "If this was meant to be a prank, there's only one person laughing, and it's not either one of us."

Ellington, of Monroe, and her friend Patricia Covington said they plan to boycott the retailer until they're assured the issue has been addressed so it doesn't happen again.

The pair said they were stunned when they heard the announcement and initially believed they had misheard it. But once the words sank in, they grew angry.

"I depended on Walmart for all my needs, because the store has pretty much everything you could want," Covington said. "But until this issue is addressed in a way I'm comfortable with, I can't walk through those doors again."

Officials with Wal-Mart Stores Inc., based in Bentonville, Ark., said that the announcement was "unacceptable" and that they're trying to determine who made it and how it happened.
"We are just as appalled by this incident as our customers," the company said in a statement. "Whoever did this is just wrong and acted in an inappropriate manner. Clearly, this is completely unacceptable to us and to our customers."

This is not the first time the retailer has faced such problems.

There have been several past instances of black customers claiming they were treated unfairly at Walmart stores, and the company faced lawsuits alleging that women were passed over in favor of men for pay raises and promotions.

In February 2009, the retailer paid $17.5 million to settle a class action lawsuit alleging racial discrimination in its hiring of truck drivers.

And the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued the company in May 2009, claiming some Hispanic employees at a Sam's Club subsidiary in California were subjected to a hostile work environment. That suit alleges managers failed to stop repeated verbal harassment, including the use of derogatory words, against employees of Mexican descent.
However, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has said the company has worked hard in recent years to show it cares about diversity.

Bill Mitchell, a former Walmart employee who was shopping Wednesday at the store, said that he was saddened to hear about the announcement but that "as a black man, I've heard worse things."

As customer Sharon Osbourne, of Williamstown, left the store Wednesday, she called the announcement "appalling, stupid and sad."





Awwww hellls naw ..,. walmart gonna pay !

An obese mother in the US is trying to put on weight in order to become the world's fattest woman. :laugh:

Donna Simpson, from New Jersey, weighs 273kg but told the Daily Mail newspaper she had her heart set on reaching her goal weight of 1000lb (450kg) in two years.
The 42-year-old already holds the title of the world's fattest mother after giving birth to her daughter in 2007 when she weighed 241kg.
"I'd love to be 1000lb ... it might be hard though, running after my daughter keeps my weight down," Ms Simpson told the Daily Mail.
Ms Simpson, who needs a mobility scooter to go shopping, eats huge amounts of junk food each week and tries to move as little as possible so she doesn't burn off as many calories.
"I do love cakes and sweet things, doughnuts are my favourite," she said.
Ms Simpson said she also loved eating sushi and would often eat 70 big pieces in one go.
Her 49-year-old partner Philippe — who she met on a dating site for plus-size people — was encouraging her to reach her goal, she said.
"I think he'd like it if I was bigger ... he's a real belly man and completely supports me," she said.
To put on enough weight, Ms Simpson will need to eat 12,000 calories a day, which is six times the recommended daily intake for women.
In order to pay for the enormous amounts of food she is eating — her weekly grocery bill is $815 — Ms Simpson makes money by running a website where men pay to watch her consume fast food.

Man used penis to assault female police officer

A man who assaulted a female police officer with his penis has been fined.
Marium Varinauskas, 28, tried to strike the officer on the head with his penis when she was called out to his flat, but she got out of the way.
Lithuanian Varinauskas admitted a charge of assault at Aberdeen Sheriff Court and was fined £600.
The court heard he had been drinking heavily and could not remember committing the offence at his home in Aberdeen.
Police were called to his home by his girlfriend, who had complained about him being drunk last November.
They arrived to find the self-employed engineer sitting on the sofa wearing a pair of underpants.


Fiscal depute Elaine Lynch said: "The accused got to his feet and was standing over the police officer exposing his penis and thrusting it in her face, forcing her to take evasive action to avoid getting struck."
Defence solicitor John Hardie said: "He was sitting on the couch drunk with his pants on.
"He can't remember anything but accepts that if that's what the police say then that's what happened.
"He has never been so drunk before that day and accepts he has to take full responsibility. He apologises profusely and is extremely embarrassed."
His not guilty plea to committing a breach of the peace by uttering offensive and sexual remarks was accepted by the Crown.
Sheriff Annella Cowan was told that the Lithuanian had now quit binge drinking because of the incident.

"He apologises profusely and is extremely embarrassed"

Helpful dads hurt mums' self-esteem

* From correspondents in Texas
* From: NewsCore
* March 19, 2010 2:35PM

THE competence of diligent dads helping out at home is damaging the self-esteem of "super-mums" who feel caught between work and traditional child-rearing roles, according to a new study.

According to a LiveScience report, the University of Texas at Austin interviewed 78 dual-earner couples who had eight-month-old infants, measuring them on two types of self-esteem - self-liking and self-competence.

Researchers asked the parents to talk about their partner's strengths and weaknesses and rated their responses.

They found that among mothers who thought their partners were competent caregivers, the more time those fathers spent alone with their children, the lower the mother's self-competence rating was.

"In American society, women are expected to take a main role in parenting despite increasingly egalitarian sex roles," study researcher Takayuki Sasaki said.


"Thus, we believe that employed mothers suffer from self-competence losses when their husbands are involved and skillful because those mothers may consider that it is a failure to fulfil cultural expectations.

"Husbands do not suffer from self-competence losses even when their wives are involved and skillful because that is consistent with cultural expectations."

Not surprisingly, mothers were found to spend nearly three times as much time child-rearing by themselves as their husbands did.

And this was noticed by husbands who gave their wives top marks in parenting skills.

In contrast they got a much lower rating from the mothers but even so, the women often said their husbands were good parents.

"Many wives would say care-giving by their husbands is helpful but at the same time wives give their husbands negative feedback because their husbands' care-giving style is different from their own," Ms Sasaki told LiveScience.

"For example, a wife appreciates when her husband feeds their baby but also tells her husband that after all it makes more work because the way the husband feeds is messy."

A telephone call came in for the job applicant. It was from his wife. His side of the conversation went like this: "Which company? When do I start? What's the salary?" I said, "l assume you're not interested in conducting this interview any further." He promptly responded, "I am as long as you'll pay me more."

MOLESTI ... haha


By Rhonda Cook

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution



Cherokee County authorities are looking for a 56-year-old French national suspected of trying to buy a 5-year-old child, a purchase he apparently hoped to make online.
Cherokee Co. sheriff's dept., Cherokee Co. sheriff's dept. Patrick Ange Molesti

The sheriff’s office said Monday that investigators, acting on an anonymous tip, searched Patrick Ange Molesti’s Woodstock’s house last week. He was not there, but investigators seized his computer where they found evidence of child pornography, the sheriff’s office said. No other information was released regarding the alleged attempt to buy the child.
Molesti is believed to still be in the metro Atlanta area, the sheriff's office said.


He is described as 6-foot-1 and weighing 200 pounds. Molesti has brown hair and brown eyes. Authorities say he is armed with a handgun and driving a 2002 white Chevrolet van.
Anyone with information about Molesti should call 911 or the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office at 770-928-0239.

Saying 'I do': Black marriage campaign is growing
Email this Story

Mar 26, 5:30 AM (ET)

By MEGAN K. SCOTT


NEW YORK (AP) - For Kenny and Lynette Seymour, last weekend's black marriage gala was about celebrating their seven-year marriage. They got to meet other black couples while spending a romantic evening together.

"Every time you meet another couple, you learn something new about yourself and relationships in general," said Kenny Seymour, a 39-year-old Broadway music director who lives in Queens. "It was beautiful to be around a bunch of married people in love."

Other black couples will be marking the eighth annual Black Marriage Day this weekend, by attending workshops, black-tie dinners and other activities. Some groups have held events throughout the month, although Black Marriage Day, which celebrates matrimony in the black community, falls on the fourth Sunday in March.

Yeah, I was gonna bitch about the fact that the AAHMI gets federal funding to get these community programs going. But, hey, if it's successful, it may lead to savings on the welfare front.

What is the context of the post?

Was it a site concerning juvenile diabetes?
Or maybe autistic children?
