buy Pepsi in Atlanta and there are as many McDonald's as Wendy's in Columbus OH (where Wendy's is based/started).
You should never have to shop anywhere just because that's the only one around. That is a monopoly and it's illegal, just like those other Robber Barons of old were. It's ridiculous. And, alot of the stuff that seems so cheap at Walmart is the same price at the grocery or wherever else you might go. I really don't believe that the average family saves 2000 dollars a year at Walmart. For one thing, what are we comparing to? My mother spent less money on things than she would have at Walmart without ever setting foot in one, instead being smart, buying on sale, buying in bulk, using coupons, etc.
I would have a problem with Walmart even if didn't have very serious problems with the way it does business and treats its employees.
As for whether people who are not white can be racist, of course they can. What about the numerous situations in which people who are not white are the majority? There are many workplaces around where the manager, the manager's boss, and the majority of employees are not white, and if a white person is discriminated against, that's the same thing.
They need not even be in the minority.
Anytime a person's race comes into consideration for a promotion, a friendship, anything, rather than their personality or job performance or whatever other factors, its racism. And yes, I think that college-admissions quotas were racist.
