I'm going to assume that you've never stepped foot into the whole foods in Union Square..

Every single customer is caucasion, and every single cashier is African American.

Something is wrong with that picture.

I have shopped there and I an Black. Other non whites shop there too.

Are you saying you want Whole Foods to fire all these Black people working there? They have to work somewhere. Perhaps the problem is with yiu.

And there are non Black enpkoyees there, including whites.

I shop at Whole foods from time to time and I'm Latino of mixed race. So no not every customer is Caucasian, lol. Black people are cashiers everywhere, banks, pharmacies, clothing stores, etc. It just doesn't even cross my mind because in NYC it's extremely common.

Ok, on this subject. How about every Walmart I stepped foot in has a lot of Black people shopping and working all different low levels but all the management are white.

Nothing is wrong with that picture. A lot of white people work there as well and shop there.

And proof that the management is all white?

And people of other races exist and they shop in WalMart as well.

You've just described nearly all supermarkets/food stores or whatever in large parts of Manhattan below 96th or even 125th street. Likely goes for many parts of Staten Island, Brooklyn and Queens as well.


White youth and or even adults aren't that into working in supermarkets anymore, nor have they in years. Back when A&P and others ran things, and nearly all places were union things were different. Today your average high school or college age "white" person has far better employment options, that is if they want/need to work at all.


That being said you still find a few whites working in supermarkets scattered about. Many however have been with places for decades, and usually are working for union shops.

Been to some Wegmans upstate, the place is colossal.

Is that like the largest average square footage grocery store in the world?
