*It’s hard out there for phucking idiot racists. Even harder when they are stupid OUT LOUD. Which, if this “market investigator” at CVS is being truthful about his supervisor at CVS telling him to “lock up” African American and Hispanics who are caught shoplifting or in other words, anyone SHOPPING WHILE BLACK…
I mean, you do the math. The man the supervisor is talking to is African American.
And now he is suing CVS.
According to claims in a new Brooklyn Federal Court lawsuit filed by Sheldon Thomas, who actually stepped up to Black and Hispanic customers per his supervisors demand; he had been told, “When you catch the black people, lock them up,” and, “When you catch the Spanish people, lock them up.”
Thomas, who says racial slurs — including the n-word — were normal in the store, claims the supervisor also said to him, “There are a lot of black and Spanish people here. Make sure you watch them.”
The suit claims white shoplifters were let go.
Thomas, a Brooklyn resident who was employed at CVS from January 2012 to July 2013 said the supervisor told him explicitly to “watch the black n—-rs that come in the store.”
Again, the “supervisor” is saying this to a black man.
This is not the first time allegations such as this were made against CVS. On Monday, two other ex-investigators filed lawsuits making similar allegations in the Bronx Supreme Court.
While retailers generally jump on the “we don’t tolerate prejudice in our establishment” bandwagon pretty quickly, attorney David Gottlieb, who represents several of the claimants says CVS has not lifted a finger to do anything about the claims.
From where I sit, saying nothing is a pretty powerful statement in itself.
