#677. Being the Real

Admit it. You've ventured to the absolutely brilliant website and enjoyed a few hearty laughs (maybe a few belly laughs).

What exactly is
"We personally have nothing against Walmart. We, along with most of America, shop at Walmart for nearly everything we need. This site is simply a satirical social commentary of the extraordinary sights found at America’s favorite store. Walmart is Americana baby, Enjoy!"
What exactly are we about to discuss here at SBPDL? Wal-Mart is a much maligned company, and the store receives the type of envy and derision the New York Yankees find themselves constantly encountering. Why? Because Wal-Mart is the biggest company in the world (revenues of $378 billion in 2008):
"A facelift and even lower prices kept the world's largest retailer afloat in a troubled economy.

Staring down the barrel of brutal fourth-quarter retail forecasts, CEO Lee Scott dramatically cut prices on 15,000 items - including popular toys and electronics - by 20% more than usual to lure holiday shoppers. That rocked the industry, pressuring other retailers to squeeze already tight margins.

The tactic worked: Wal-Mart grossed $100 billion, breaking its fourth-quarter sales record, and soundly beat Target in same-store holiday sales for the first time in nearly a decade."
Interestingly, the customer base of Wal-Mart (if one decided the test samples at are an accurate portrayal of the cross-geographical pool of consumers for its low prices) represents the diversity of the United States perfectly:
"Wal-Mart Stores Inc. will retool its 3,256 U.S. stores over two years to give them a more customized mix of goods and layout for six key groups of customers, including Hispanics, African-Americans and affluent shoppers, the executive in charge of Wal-Mart’s U.S. operations said Thursday.

The move is the latest strategy twist for the world’s largest retailer as it struggles to revive growth rates that have fallen behind smaller rivals such as Target Corp. and after the company’s first quarterly drop in profits in a decade.

The approach, called segmentation, follows months of new initiatives from Wal-Mart to make sure each store is better tailored to its locale and to lure more affluent shoppers, who may come to Wal-Mart for groceries and basics but skip the company’s more profitable aisles like apparel and electronics.

Eduardo Castro-Wright, president and chief executive of Wal-Mart U.S., said stores will get a more specific mix of products and layout to appeal to one of the six target groups — based on what market research showed was the best approach for that location.

“Driving customer relevancy will drive growth,” Castro-Wright said in a Webcast of a presentation to financial analysts.

The target groups identified by Wal-Mart’s market researchers are Hispanics, African Americans, “empty-nesters/boomers,” affluent, suburban and rural shoppers, according to Castro-Wright’s slide presentation."

Everyone loves low prices and nearly 100 million Americans enter a Wal-Mart store each week searching for discounted goods and merchandise, all in an environment where the most garish and outlandish individual can shop without fear of persecution or ridicule.

You see, Wal-Mart is the ultimate manifestation of America, where the pursuit of happiness is a virtue and individual liberty to wear any accoutrement in public is encouraged and scorn is heaped upon those who point the prole takeover of the nation.

Newsflash: proles run this country. They are the life-blood of this nation. Visiting, one is shocked to see the incredible obesity represented within the pages of that website. Is this an anomaly? No. As we stated in passing on seconds, an unbelievable rate of Black people find themselves classified in the morbidly obese category. White people, always wishing to emulate Black people, work diligently to increase the turgid nature of the average American:
"The rates of adult obesity in the United States increased in 23 states during the past year and did not decrease in any state.

And the number of obese and overweight children has now climbed to 30 percent in 30 states, a troubling trend that could signal decades of weight-related health problems such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease as these children become adults."

For the fifth year in a row, Mississippi topped the list as the state with the highest rate of adult obesity, at 32.5 percent, according to the report, F as in Fat: How Obesity Policies Are Failing in America 2009.

Besides Mississippi, West Virginia, Alabama and Tennessee have obesity rates above 30 percent. Eight of the 10 states with the highest number of obese adults are in the South. The state with the lowest adult obesity rate is Colorado, at 18.9 percent, according to the report.

Remember, the least healthy geographic regions of the United States are in the south, which coincidentally has the highest percentage of Black people in the nation (click here to see how many Wal-Mart's your state has operating).

Interestingly, this map illustrates where Wal-Mart stores are most frequent and not surprisingly, the south finds itself inundated with Sam Walton's mad creation.

Again, no store more perfectly symbolizes the United States of America than Wal-Mart does and a quick look at the store will crystallize this metaphor for everyone:

Wal-Mart’s dedication to the African-American community is evident throughout our company.
  • Wal-Mart is a leading employer of minorities in the U.S. and has more than 257,000 African-American associates.
  • The company offers its Diversity Development Series seminars to assist our associates in their understanding of diversity trends and challenges. These sessions help to provide key information, tips and skills to empower associates to use their unique talents and ideas to contribute to their professional growth. As a result of these efforts and many others, more than 25 percent of all Wal-Mart managers and officials are minorities, including African-Americans.
  • Wal-Mart actively recruits associates from minority-serving institutions, including historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). In fact, more than 5,400 of our associates are graduates from 73 HBCUs across the country.
Uh-oh. Recruiting from Historically Black Colleges and Universities can be a risky proposition, considering how many of them are losing their accreditation.

Worse, Wal-Mart can't employ all Black people:
"Joblessness for 16-to-24-year-old black men has reached Great Depression proportions -- 34.5 percent in October, more than three times the rate for the general U.S. population. And last Friday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that unemployment in the District, home to many young black men, rose to 11.9 percent from 11.4 percent, even as it stayed relatively stable in Virginia and Maryland."
Wal-Mart can't employ all Black people in the country - that job is left to the Federal Government - but they can work to bring low-prices to Black people in the inner cities of America:
Beyond that local effort, Wal-Mart has taken its romance national, setting up scholarships for minorities, donating to the United Negro College Fund and writing checks for several black Congressmen. Patronage has its benefits. In May Black Enterprise, the venerable periodical of Afro-America's business class, announced that Wal-Mart would be a sponsor of its 10th Annual Entrepreneur's Conference. In its June issue, Black Enterprise listed its "30 Best Companies for Diversity." Guess who made the cut?

But Wal-Mart's move into the inner city has set off a debate in the black community about economic development. Traditional activists see the company as a corporate parasite. "Desperate people do desperate things. People would rather have a supermarket than not," says Jesse Jackson, whose Rainbow/PUSH Coalition is headquartered in Chicago. "But the point is that employment and development must go hand in hand. We need work where you can have a livable wage and health insurance, and retirement."

I agree with this post 100%. Walmart is full of "trashy scumbags" to quote my wife. We make a decent living and can afford to pass on lead laced Chinese made knock offs. So, we will pass on being "The real people of walmart". We love that site. I just wish some of my white women loving brothers would take a look at some of those "sexy" chicks on that site. Especially the the one sporting the stained tank tops bra less.

Just be aware of the pitfalls in using walmart as a measuring stick of how much black people suck. Make sure you stay away from the stores in Idaho, Utah, or West Virgina. You might see some things you don't want to see

As for the black chick that cut in line in walmart my opinion should be obvious. Instead of getting 15 years she should get 30, because the one thing I dislike more than a certain racial group is ignorant black people. This chick wasn't playing the "race card " whatever that is. She was operating on the assumption that she was on equal footing with the white majority.

People like this believe that because some phony opportunistic law was passed in the 60's everything is cool. Or that some phony half breed gets elected president that means you'll get the "white girl" treatment. I guess this moron thought the police would have just told everyone to relax and call it a day. The phrase "break it up" only applies when the parties involved are all white.

My parents and grandparents always told me to view white people as a necessary evil. Whenever possible you should keep your distance and stay to your own communities. My family kept this philosophy. It may sound like "reverse racism" to the phony hypocrites and liars on this site, but none of us are looking at a 15 year prison sentences. Reason #100 to stay out of walmart. Reason #1 to stay away from white people.

Well, yes, dystopia in the USA appears inevitable. It is not pleasant to contemplate and even less fun to say, but we really are going to be declining into a second-class society when China really comes on line, so to speak. Stop and think about this: there are as many people in China with IQ's in the "gifted" range as there are people in the USA.
Now, go to Walmart. Have a nice day.

"This chick wasn't playing the "race card " whatever that is"

Definition of "Race Card":black person screams "racism" whenever something doesn't suit him/her.Also very useful to surpress ugly truths a.k.a "hate facts".And....excessive use of the words "white" and "racist" as a strategy(the only strategy they have) to win debates against the white devil.

black guy it's time to face it.You can scream racism all you want ,it will not change the fact that we are White and you are black.Human nature will seperate us forever.That is why diferent races live on different continents.I'm honest i think that Whites had no buisness going to America and take Amerind lands.Races should stay with their own,in history there are enough examples of how civilizations disappeared once the original race that founded it, was gone.Take the Aztecs,after the Spanish mixed with them ,where do you see Aztec culture now?In the Museum i guess.After the Goths conquered Rome Europe fell into the dark ages.And they only conquered Rome why?Because the Romans became racially diverse and decadent.

I think America as it is now deserves to vanish, because it is a multi-racial NOTHING.And it will,considering the self hatred of Whites and the mindless interbreeding.Let's have a wager how long it takes to turn the USA into a third world country once Whites are gone.Or are you telling me that blacks can maintain the same civilisatory and technological standards?

I'm not a phony hypocrite,I'm a racist,just like you and everybody else who doesn't buy into the unnatural Marxist ideology of the "progressive" and color-blind dogooders.I guess you think ,that you'd better stay away from Whites because they are "racist".No, it's wrong.Even if you wouldn't think of Whites that way you would stay away, because your natural instinct tells you to do so.And this is the only human right that matters.My own people come first.So if you complain about white people prefering their own....tell me what does that make you?A hypocrite?

Well then you dislike a great many people indeed. Or are you aware of average black IQs in America, or worse yet, in Africa? The numbers are 85 and 70, respectively. Here's how the medical journals describe this level of cognitive ability:

Mild mental retardation 50–69
Borderline intellectual functioning 70–80

In Africa, you literally have a continent of millions upon millions of functional retards. America is little better. It is this fact and no other which accounts for every black social pathology observed the world over. So if you hate ignorant blacks, you've got a lot of hatin' ahead of you.

Also I'm curious: what lies and hypocrisies have you unearthed on this site? Although consistent logic and coherent argumentation aren't your strengths, most on here appear to agree with your core philosophy: racial separation. Believe me when I say that I certainly do.

To Anon 11:06...I agree.

No, Black guy, it is not "reverse" racism, it is racism, period.
Anyway, we teach our children same thing. You do not want 15 years prison and we do not want 15 stabbings.
Just read past posts here about Whitopia. It seems whites retreat and when blacks see how it is nice clean and ordered the place whites have again built, they invade and destroy. Only a limited number can be absorbed and be inoffensive. Further, you have the Walmart effect.
It is also hypocrite when you say you stay away. You never stay away, apart from using the benefits of an evolved civilization, your taxpayer funded benefits arrive everywhere: if you do not have the guts of pointing a gun to the head of your neighbour for his money, just vote and elect a politician which will do it for you.

There a few reasons why I should be one of the few blacks you guys like.

1. I find white racism and hatred of black people insanely funny and a non-issue.

2. I only find black women attractive.

3. I've never dated a white women and have no interest in doing so.

4. I've lived and will continue to live in a predominately black neighborhoods. So, xlr8, I pass on this "whitopia" Thanks for the offer, but no need to pack your bags.

5.White co-workers are just that co- workers. No associating after work,BBQ s,dating, etc. I have my real friends and family and they're all black.

6. I never had to rape a woman. So, your white women are safe.

If you would like a complete list of reasons why I'm one of the good ones come by my house. You might want to get your black "best friend " to pick it up for you.

What does IQ or the continent of Africa have to do with The real people of Wal mart? Lets talk about the IQ of the white British couple that assumed it would be fun to go sailing off the coast of Somalia. Their little situation is pretty ironic, don't you think.

Stuff Black People Don't Like said...

Black guy,

As I've stated in other posts, I enjoy your comments.

You still refuse to admit that the FBI statistics regarding interracial rape are real (sadly, they aren't the fabrication of a white racist: they're real).

You have a healthy view of race and community, which is very important.

What do you make of this story?

I read a lot. I travel for work all over the country and attend classes for graduate school.

Since 2001, I have tried to read as much as I can about race, racial issues and how these topics will impact the future of our nation.

Let's be honest: anyone who attacks this site as being run by KKK nuts is an idiot, just as anyone who attacks us for not talking about the Jewish people needs to readjust their priorities.

In 21st century America, white gangs aren't going out and brutalizing Black people. White people didn't assault Black people in Akron, Ohio over July 4th and shout, "This is a white world, now."

White people don't kill Black cops - four in Oakland and four in Seattle.

Every Fortune 500 company doesn't have hundreds of employees devoted to majority outreach, majority training and valuable resources dedicated to training their white employees in anything other than "diversity" appreciation.

I believe the United States is a failed nation. Anyone who enjoys seeing endless strip malls, Wal-Marts and congested highways everywhere is incapable of understanding this point.

We have thrown trillions of dollars into education and still have a vast amount of individuals that happen to be virtually unemployable.

We have a broken government that grows larger and more powerful everyday, that runs massive deficits and yet spends money with ruthless aggression.

White people are demonized constantly in the media, schools and by our government, yet they go out of their way to adopt Black people and other minorities (at rates far higher than any other racial group).

Where would Michael Oher be without white people?

The point of attacking Wal-Mart is simple: The store represents all that is deplorable about America currently, and yet the website,, wallows in the muck of that stores avarice and finds glory and enjoyment in so doing.

Sure, it can be funny, but so were Greek tragedies.

Black Guy,

IQ has nothing to do with the people of Walmart, but it has everything to do with your dislike of ignorant blacks. That's why I helpfully quoted what I was responding to right up front. We've had this confusion before. Please try to pay attention.

And as for the idiotic white couple who was captured off Somalia, I don't know what their IQs are, do you? I'm no mariner, though I would guess that a natively dumb person (say with an IQ of 85 or so) couldn't sail a boat by themselves around the world. But maybe modern technology has rendered this endeavor as simple as getting on a city bus. I'd be curious to know.

On the other hand, I agree that their decision to place themselves in close proximity to the primeval Somali savages was stupidity on stilts. Though not nearly as stupid as our government's allowing them to actually come live in America in large numbers.

Here's just one small town that is being blithely destroyed as a result. The comments are telling:

It is a damn disgrace that "our" Government only sees fit to (overwhelmingly) hire and promote black women, and virtually disregard all other races and ethnys, especially White (and Black) men.

Jeesh, like anyone else couldn't use a freakin Civil Service job, with all the obscene perks and benefits, especially in this lousy economy, right???

" does a good job of showcasing the obese white people who frequent the store and the other unusual creatures that pass for bipeds who slither out of strange cracks in the small towns to showcase their cracks for the internet world, but the site misses the point."

ROTFL!! Oh God, I love the writing on this blog. The biting humor is great. Why is it that conservatives are so much funnier than liberals?
