cultural facts and opinions
Posted 10/27/10
These are some things I've learned working at Wal-Mart about people of different cultures, at least when they're shopping:

If you hear a child crying in a department store, he or she usually belongs to a white family.

If you hear a child screaming at the top of their lungs in a department store, he or she usually belongs to a middle-eastern family.

If you see a child unsupervised in a department store, he or she usually belongs to an Asian family

The most likely person to ask you for a discount on the last item on the shelf will be white.

The most likely person to ask you for a discount on a genuinely damaged product will be black.

The most likely person to ask you for a discount on a product that the customer has purposely tampered with will be brown.*

If a white person can't get the discount they want, they will want to speak to your manager. If they still can't get the discount, the will begrudgingly pay full price, then declare they will never come back.

They will usually come back anyway.

If a black person can't get the discount they want, they will pay full price for the product without a fight.

If a brown person can't get the discount they want, they will leave the store without the product.

Asian patrons do not watch for the price.

Elderly brown or Asian people will genuinely get lost at the checkout.

Elderly white people will pretend they are lost at the checkout in order to skip the line.

Aside from mothers with baby carriages, elderly white women are the most likely to shoplift**

The friendliest customers are Sikh, Japanese, American, first nations and Australian.

The least friendly customers are Canadian, Mennonite, Chinese, and Indian.

Mennonites buy a lot of junk food, condoms, sex jelly and intimates, more so than Canadian couples.

Mennonite children have this eerie habit of staring at you all at once. I don't believe they are taught to do it, but they all do it.

Mennonite women will go shopping the day after giving birth, or sometimes earlier.

Mennonite women are more likely to donate than white women. Indian women will always say yes.


(* This is based on the people I have caught tampering with merchandise--brown people tamper, while most others make the worse choice of shoplifting)
(** This is taught to all employees when being trained on loss-prevention)

Say what you want about what I have up here, but much of it is based off of 1 1/2 years of working the cash at walmart, and if you had a similar job, you would see the patterns after a little while. I guarantee it. I agree that racism is awful, but there's a difference between being racist and understanding the difference between cultures. People who say "I don't see in colours" don't realize that they are talking about assimilating other cultures and taking away their distinct characteristics.

It's like your painting out Japanese women to be all god-like and Chinese women to be dung beetles.
Close this f-ing thread, it's 100% racist. This isn't about stereotypes anymore, it looks more like your own personal hatred for Chinese people (mostly women, are you a sexist also?). Retarded.


Duh-kahm bic boii no need 2 git duh rrrrrrrrrrrrush ovah. kbutfosrs, if you notice his link, it turns out he just copypasted the whole thingie from the link. So it's not necessarily his racist opinions. It's someone ELSE'S racist opinions.


What's up with the freaky beginning?
And also *foooo* (me breathing out a sigh of relief)
I wouldn't want to meet someone who's so racist and shows it with no consideration of who it might offend ^^
