A study out of Columbia University suggests that Walmart deliberately runs much better stores in white neighborhoods than in minority neighborhoods

The study found that stores in lower-income neighborhoods have considerably lower customer service ratings than those in wealthier ones. More specifically, the higher the percentage of black or Latino residents in an area, the lower the Walmart rating. The authors analyzed Yelp reviews of 2,840 stores and found that those in predominantly black areas tend to be rated with words like "nasty," "terrible," and "unorganized," while those in white areas tend to be described as "friendly," "clean," and "pleasant."

"Welcome to Walmart?"

Could it be that someone is mopping the floors at the white Walmart, and cleaning other areas? Could it be that some of the employees at the evil white Walmart are stocking shelves in an orderly fashion and putting merchandise in it's proper area where people can find it? Could it be that the store is stocked more times per week because they don't have to hire armed guards to stand watch over trucks lest they be looted before even being unloaded? They can't bankrupt the store for security so they may well compromise with merchandise. I'm just raising possibilities here about quality of services and work ethic/style being different. When you can't ask a black employee for something because they might suck their teeth at you and call you racist, you aren't going to get much done.

I would imagine that in white neighborhoods Walmart has more white employees than they do in minority neighborhoods which likely has a significant effect on store quality.

Customers leave a significant amount of trash in Walmart stores, and they disarrange the merchandise while looking through it. To the extent that the customers create more havoc in a store, the store will be perceived by the same customers as "unpleasant." White customers create less in-store havoc. Simply cause and effect derived from the behavior of the population involved, just as in neighborhoods, in whole cities, and in whole countries.

Bwaaaaaahahahahaha, So once again the realities of DEMOGRAPHICS rears it's ugly head yet again. Demographics IS DESTINY BABY!I love how these morons can write all this useless nonsense and always have to blame whites. LOL,how childish.The people make the culture not the culture makes the people.If blacks and Latinos want to live and work like slobs then let them.It's in their DNA.Whites take care of their neighborhoods and cities.Why do you think all these third world losers always want to move to white neighborhoods.Whites don't go looking for black ghetto and Latino rat holes to live in except white trash females that breed with useless blacks and Latino thugs.Blacks and Latinos want to move out of their rat holes and move into white areas because they want to get away from their crime ridden neighborhoods.And the ones committing the crimes are them.Their own F' people.This is HILARIOUS.LOOK IN THE F'in mirror minorities.Your problems and crime follow you that is why whites move away and you idiots create the same BS all over again.DEMOGRAPHY is DESTINY,fools.I can't stop laughing.If I ever see one of you idiots that write this stuff I am going to laugh right in your face.BWAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Yeah, I shop at many Wal-marts. The customers in those areas act like trashy pigs. Just Google images of street scenes in Lagos Nigeria...their habits havent changed a bit.
