    Default Black customers suing Toys R Us for discrimination...shocker

    So does this mean that I can sue Wal Mart and Sam's Club, since they both do the same thing??
    ANOTHER bogus lawsuit brought in the name of "discrimination"


    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Two black shoppers have sued Toys "R" Us saying they were subjected to racial discrimination and unjustified scrutiny at a store in New York.

    Patricia Drayton and Valerie Kirk said in the lawsuit that the store in The Bronx, a borough of New York City, discriminated against them by asking them to show their sales receipts. The suit was filed in Manhattan Federal Court on Tuesday.

    Drayton said in the lawsuit that she was stopped by a security guard at the door of the store and asked to show her receipt. After refusing to do so, she was made to wait while the employee checked with a cashier to see if she had purchased the merchandise, the lawsuit said.

    According to court documents, Kirk was told by a man working at the story that Toys "R" Us's policy required that she show her receipt to him prior to leaving the story. Kirk said in the suit that she refused to comply and was banned from shopping there.

    The lawsuit said black shoppers are subjected to compulsory inspection of their sales receipts while white shoppers are not.

    The women are asking the court to give the suit class action status to represent all black shoppers who have been subjected to the same procedures by Toys "R" Us.

    Metro One, which provides loss prevention services to retail stores, and several people employed by the two companies are also being sued by the women.

    They are seeking compensatory and punitive damages of at least $200 million each on behalf of the class.

    Representatives for Toys "R" Us and Metro One were not available for comment.

    Toys "R" Us, the country's second-largest toy retailer, is owned by a consortium that includes Bain Capital Partners LLC, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. and Vornado Realty Trust.

    The company still reports its financial performance because some of its bonds are publicly traded.

    SAMS club also requires employees to check the carts and receipts of shoppers leaving the store. If you can't stand waiting maybe 10 seconds for someone to mark your receipt with a hi-lighter, then don't shop there.

    It isn't like Toys R Us has the cheapest prices anyway.

    But the item in the suit is about them being selected to show receipts while Caucasians were not.

    Frankly, I think that moron Sharpton and his equally moronic friend Jesse Jackson will be by in 5.......4.......3........2.... ....1.......

    Um yeah. I can totally debunk that one. Not a one of those racebaiters here in Durham. Nor have any of the scumbag faculty from Duke who essentially persecuted those boys apologized - and Duke protected them during their court settlement too.

    Hence Duke will NEVER get a dime from me for the alumni collections. I do mean NEVER.

    Careful, or someone on these boards might accuse you of being a racist like he has accused me.

    I wonder how much money was spent on the burial. Most funerals cost a pretty penny. Could they have found something better to do with that money like send somebody to college?
    Not to mention if we tried to bury "honkey" they would be shouting. "Dat cracker needs to shut his mouf"
    Sorry just got off a shift in da hood.
