the manager( josh ) of this store, is very prejudice, i walked in on friday, 2/28/09 and josh told the employee( amber) to id, those blacks. me, 3 other colored people and several whites walked in and. (amber) did just that, i come to this location everyday to buy a pack of cigarettes and evrytime i do he shoots is racial comments out. the girl, behind me was caucasion and she looked way younger that i, josh did not instruct her to ask any questions, when i walk in he clenches up and gets so angry, i think he does not want people of color in his store. i was told to go to another location, also, i was told by one of the employees that josh is not found of black people. that is fine but i did not deserve to be humilated do to my color, i have contacked speedway and have recieved no comment.

    Hi sweetie, whenever you enter that store you might need to have you a voice recorder somewhere on you. I suggest that you also can have friends to go in with you as well also recording the comments. If one of you is at the cash register, the other can be recording video on your cell phones or a small portable camcorder and record everthing. I think that would help a lot!

    I too have also experienced such rude racist comments from different places. The problem in my situation is I am asian and italian. My children are half black. It is wrong no matter who you are mistreating, but try explaining to a 9 year old girl why they are so rude to her. This just sucks. I would go to a different store even if it was out of my way. They will soon know what it is like to be unwanted in a neighborhood if they keep it up.

    @miahutchinson Racist toward kids? You need to get that on video. It would be a good thing for all of society to see and told why that's not okay.

    Hi Mia, i am sorry to here that your kids had to experience racism. I must tell you sweetie that my kids have as well. I explained to them how to handle it so that they will not find themselves in trouble. I told them that some people can, t stand light skinned black kids because they might want to be light skinned like them. I told them whenever someone is talking about you or even making racist comments just put a smile on your face and say thank you. Because they might just maybe, just maybe, want to be who you are and they just might want to be your skin color or your race. So Mia i made my kids fill important and i did not tell them to react in a negative way so that they will not obtain an assaulting negative attitude. Teach your kids to love. GOD BLESS YOU SWEETIE!!
