Roundy's employees accused of using racial slurs, Milwaukee Black Panthers protest

NOW: Roundy’s employees accused of using racial slurs, Milwaukee Black Panthers protest

NEXT:

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee's Black Panthers staged a protest at the Milwaukee headquarters of Roundy's supermarkets.

They claim two upper-level employees at Roundy's warehouse in Oconomowoc have been using racist language in front of employees. One of those employees is the grandson of the late James Cameron, the man who founded the Black Holocaust Museum in Milwaukee. 

"They used the n-word on numerous occasions in a meeting," said Black Panthers' King Rick. "People complained, and no one is doing anything about it. We're gonna do something about it. Do you know how many black and brown people shop at Kroger's and Roundy's? We're demanding that these individuals get fired."

Roundy's sent a statement that says:

"Respect, inclusion and diversity are key values at our company. We do not tolerate the use of offensive and derogatory language. We are currently investigating the allegation. Beyond that, we generally do not comment on personnel matters."

Listen man, blacks need to ask their young men to stop raping, killing, robbing, and beating innocent White people for no reason. I live in Chicago where 92% of violent crime perpetrated on blacks is from blacks and 89% of violent crime against whites is by, you guessed it, blacks. The best part is that the far left will even deny the stats. Get your shit together, clean your own house, and then cry about some random idiot saying nigger.

Statistics are Racist.

Demerits and Timeouts don't deter crime. Old Testement Biblical Punishment is required.

Solving gun violence, even in Chicago, must be done for everyone. You can't draw a conclusion from statistics that show 19 out of every 20 shootings involved people of color.

Substantallynless than half of Chicago/Milwaukee shootings are ever solved. Who are the shooters? The average shooting victim has several gun related "Demerits" on their records, along with Timeouts. Shooting victims are known... shooters, not so much.

Let's stop talking about it. Find a way to get something done.

Forget blaming Racism. We are all in this together.

Until black AND brown people STOP using "the n word"....things will never get better. Until black AND brown people STOP killing each other....things will never get better. Until Black AND brown people stop calling each other an "Uncle Tom" when they gain sucess....things will never change. Rise up black & brown! Don't just complain & blame others. Start demanding & helping for peace. Take ownership. Want & do more!

Who is that masked man? It's King Rick and the Seven Shorties.

What do they want? King Rick and the Seven Shorties want people, who are not Black or Brown, to stop using the N-Word, when referring to people who are Black or Brown.

What will King Rick and the Seven Shorties do if they keep hearing stories about the impolite/improper use of the N-Word, by people who are not Black or Brown? They will organize the Black and Brown communities to boycott targeted businesses... imagine... Mayfair Mall?

GOD BLESS King Rick and the Seven Shorties!!!

I can’t take you serious, homely. Your comment sounds like someone who enjoys fairy tales and infatuated with the OBP of Milwaukee.

Are you insulting them by referring to the members as shorties or by discounting the membership?

Either way, it sounds like fanfare and you’re complimenting the King’s height!
Sorry, if you only seen seven. Wow, maybe the others were busy. In an attempt to appeal to your fantastic sensibility— Superman has a day job too!

You’re right— GOD Bless King Rick& the Black Panthers!

Thanks for the note.

Facts and Statistics are Racist.

I'd like to see big King Rick and the OBP gather thousands of people of like mind to properly welcome the DNC to Milwaukee with daily rallies/marches.

King Rick is the ANTI-Sheriff David Clark, and is perfect to show the nation the difference between people of color supporting President Trump, and those who don't support him.

MIlwaukee needs a powerful dynamic spokesman to champion those being marginalized.

Who better than a black man in a mask? The Seven Shorties serve the big man as an Honor Guard, to great affect.

And this is why things never change. Ignorant people like you who believe rasicm DOESN'T exist anymore. Honey please, racism is worse now. People are NOT only attacked, humiliated, degraded and treated as if they are not just as human as anyone else, because of the color of their skin, but also for being a woman, gay, a certain religion belief.

Then comes the assumptions because some people choose to make bad choices, so people like you condemn and judge them right away. As you stated wimikey, why do they hate a government that helps them through welfare, etc etc. I did NOT know government assistance was strictly given out to ONLY people of color! Maybe if you did your research, you'd see NOT ALL people of color are on government assistance. Even if they were, where does it says that's okay to treat people a certain way that NO human being should be treated?

More people get attacked for being white than black. Direct me to ONE SINGLE VIDEO of a gang of whites attacking an elderly black person. And then when you can’t find one, go ahead and check for gang of blacks attacking old white person. You’ll be watching all night. Explain that

These fake black Panthers, yes FAKE, are a fricken joke. They go anywhere they think people will pay attention to them. It is actually pretty sad. U should take a look at the self proclaimed leader, and others background and employment, it is ammuaong to say the least. It is funny they hate the very government that support them through SNAP, welfare, and disability. Anyway, it is pretty sad that they are so desperate that they literally "protest" a store in which an individual employee made ignorant comments in which the store in no way supported. So why do the cameras even show up and why was this even written and called "news"? Do better.
Don't worry about all the ppl killing eachother or all the violence, protest a store because a min wage employee said something that hurt ur feelings. Morons.

You sound very White. The article states that upper level employees made remarks not the lowly clerk.

What do you know of fake or real groups of people that are willing to take a stand.

Systemic racism is real and if people don’t stand up to it it becomes acceptable.


Finally you attack them personally. What does their employment history have to do with standing up.

One last point it won’t matter that people like you offer your criticism about people rights to protest. It will continue.

It’s hard to address idiots like wimpy that make assumptions and generalizations that are racist in nature... First, he knows nothing about the backgrounds of any of the Panthers! Secondly, if Wimpy watched the video he would know that the derogatory Comment was made by an executive. Also, the Panthers have patriots that have served their country unlike Wimpy... If he has served thank you for your service. Finally, the Panthers have the right to voice their opinion, and stand up for their community! I am troubled by those that hate and condemn when people exercise their rights!

Correction, the article states that there is a "claim" of this alleged use of the foul language. At this point it should be investigated to confirm of refute the claim. There have been flase claims similar to this in the past and have been recored to be fabricated. If there was the use of foul language appropiate actions should be taken. If the claim is false there should also be appropiate actions taken.

Amen.... It’s truly sad. When they’re not crying about racism they’re hating Jews. Black people with brains must rise up and escape the plantations of the far left
