    Seriously at that store whites make up about 30% of the store's employee population yet get the fewest promotions. In the latest round of promotions only 1 white, out of 15 promoted, was listed on the list next to the time machine. Hell, you got whites in that store that have business degrees and yet minority employees (some still in college and some never been) get promoted to management levels....WTF? Some of them are always late, just hanging around, talking all the time and at that time you see many whites that are dirty and sweeting from the hard work and nothing comes from it. Seriously, I'm thinking about taping some of this on my camera and posting on Youtube and letting public opinion do its thing. Many white employees are starting to realize it of the ones that I knew (and still hang out and talk) while working at the Duluth store. What corporate America doesn't realize is that most whites are not blinded by "white guilt" and observing in the shadows when being discriminated against and.......planning their moment of retribution.

    wow a white person saying he is being discriminated against. if it was the other way around im sure you wouldnt have said anything.  
    maybe all the white people in your store dont have what it takes to be in management.  
    seems like you think being white is the first criteria,  
    and by the way a degree doesnt mean anything in retaili love it when they call me big papa

    Thats bullshit, I've been discriminated against, and I'm blonde hair blue eyes blah blah. Because I worked for a persian owned and run company. It happens, but I have never heard of it on such a large scale in a public business like Fry's.  
     
     
    Who is this store discriminating FOR? Who are they hiring, supposedly, over whiteys? Perhaps that could help shed some light on the situation...Superhero!

    umm do you really think a degree actually means something if you can't preform your job. Maybe the people in your store actually want to work and enjoy their job. therefore actually get promoted from their own actions

    Oh please, you go to places like the mid-western US and ask people what is Hispanic and you will get blank faces everywhere. Hispanics/Latinos are concentrated in A FEW regions of the US.....West coast, Southeastern, Northeastern and lower mid-West (mostly Texas). BTW the last census (2006)....74% of Americans called themselves "white"!! So where is this new minority called white people?

    I think your confusing discrimination with Job Competition. But what your failing to realize is that these "Colored" people are better than you. Retail is everyone trying to make the extra buck. Get over yourself. Stop being such a racist prick and open your eyes.

    I thought I read that you worked in store 32? How are you so sure what all is going on in a store that is not your own? Also...maybe those were the only people that were eligible for a promotion at that time.....

    I shop there and I hang out with about 7 people there on a casual basis. Plus the promotion list is next to the time machine which is like 2 ft. away from the ad posting on the wall for customers. I got the job in Alpharetta because I was friends with people there (Duluth) prior to applying, but Duluth at the time wasn't hiring for the position I wanted so off to Alpharetta I went.

    Eh, Shawn and John both are actually pretty cool. I chat with em sometimes, and poke fun at them and with them.

    Rednecks? Dude man. If you ever come by Alpharetta or Duluth, heck in the Metro-Atlanta area, it is such a melting pot. To find anyone redneck, you have to go about 75 miles away from Downtown Atlanta, and even then, it is gonna be tough. I rarely even hear a Southern Accent and I was born and raised in Georgia. I mean yeah, we will say ya'll and ain't, but that is really all there is. It is a VERY rare thing to find people born and raised in Georgia nowadays. Lots of people moving in.  
     
    Now with the subject, the whole discrimination thing is way off. The only reason why you will see less Caucasians promoted at Store 38 is only because there is like ... 8 or 9 in the whole store. The entire area itself is pretty much Korean, Indian, Jamaican, and Hispanic, or at the very least, moving that way.Why is there an S in Lisp?
