Topic: The Corporate office of Price Chopper allows store director to resign with benefits after he calls a African American employee a Nigger!
############ is the store director of all the Price Chopper stores in the greater Kansas City Area for 20 years. This job title put him over all the supervisors of Price Chopper stores in the metro. Despite his vast criminal history THE STORE DIRECTOR was allowed to keep his prestigious job title with Price Chopper for many years. THIS STORE DIRECTOR has been convicted of numerous DUI offenses and has served jail time for them.
Recently, he called his African American Employee the word Nigger. When this took place the employee called him back the next day and asked him why he would call him such a hateful word. The conversation was recorded & during the conversation THE STORE DIRECTOR blamed his time in jail as being the cause of why he uses the word Nigger.
After the African American employee reported the incident & played the recording to the Price Chopper Corporate Office, instead of firing THE STORE DIRECTOR they allowed him to resign with benefits. This course of action sends a terrible message to all Price Chopper employees. The message being sent says that Price Chopper will reward it's long time employees when they are racially insensitive to one another.
Very shortly after the employee reported the incident to the corporate office he was accused of false allegations and suspended from his job at the Price Chopper store in Belton, Missouri. This is another culturally insensitive move Price Chopper has done against the victim of the racial slur. The few Black employees that work at the Belton, Missouri location claim that they have heard THE STORE DIRECTOR and other White employees use the word Nigger among themselves when they think that the Black employees can't hear them. They also claim there are no African American store managers at any Price Chopper stores.
Activist, Alonzo Washington has been using his social Media savvy to bring attention to the corporate racism of Price Chopper. He has tweeted about the matter on his Twitter account & will post the taped recording of the phone conversation where THE STORE DIRECTOR admits to using the word Nigger on Youtube. Black employees of Price Choppers want Alonzo Washington to call a boycott of the business. That's a option he is considering.
