    WALGREEN'S DOESN'T LIKE NEGROES!!!

     

    At least that's what teh Negroes themselves say:

    "Most of the complaints that led to the lawsuit were filed in U.S. District Court in East St. Louis, IL, and came from employees and former employees in St. Louis, Kansas City, Detroit and Tampa, FL. However, EEOC officials in St. Louis said they found evidence of the trend around the country."

    Makes sense to me - good move, Walgreens!

      Whitey, I have to tell you dude,

      Your message of hate is totally reprehensible. I take pity on you for your sociopathic disdain of others that are simply different from you.

      Your myopia is YOUR loss. Because you will never enjoy the enrichment of your being from people capable of broadening your horizons by introducing you to aspects of life that you never dreamt existed.

      Sad for you, there, dude!

      Maybe you are wrong, Rosa.

      Let's at least be fair about things.

      Walgreens gives a lot of money for lobbying and political influence. Have they given ANY $$$'s to Senator Barack Obama? Any other black candidate or incumbent?

      If they have, well it tends to discredit your theory. If not, well, let readers reach their own conclusions!

      Overall, it would seem that Walgreens has a disproportionately small percentage of African-Americans on its payroll. If things were otherwise, maybe the $24 million settlement would have been a lot higher? Maybe the hiring practices were part of "cost containment" so the share price could benefit?

      Tata,

      Yahk

      • Walgreens has some great black managers and some really welll qualified black executives. there would be more black managers and more asian and more indian and more eastern european and other ethnic groups except that walgreens tends to promote the white sons of current and ex regional vps. many of them eventually get shuffled off to positions where they can't do too much damage. It is not a racist company. It has an eye on what is required to be ethnically dverse and hires and promotes to keep a reasonable racial mix. Unfortunately, great companies don't manage to color. They hire and promote the best qualified - regardless of race. Walgreens doesn't do that.

      • Very well said Yank my friend, I ve got a good idea about who's hiding behind Rosa's i.d.
