After reading the report submitted by Robert B, I have decided to speak out about my horrible experience at Casey's General Store. I am a proud African American woman and will not let hateful people and businesses stand in my way of living my life. I also don't want businesses that encourage racism and discrimination to continue doing any kind of business at all.

About a few years ago, I was just leaving from my sister's house and heading back home from St. Louis. Along the way I stopped in Shelbyville and decided to stop there to get some food and a drink. The closet place I could find was Casey's and I feel so embarrassed to go in that place. I was the only customer that was in the store and I just walked in there to get a drink and got one of their sandwiches. By the way, their prices are too high compared to other stores nationwide.

When I went to the counter, the first thing the clerk said to me was, "Hey, I don't want any trouble now." The clerk was a white man. I told I just want to buy the drink and sandwich and that's all I wanted to do. The store manager, who was also white, was also watching us at the counter. After I gave him the money to pay for it, he gave me the money in the rudest manner and said,"Here's your change. Now get out." I was shocked that he said that to me and acted so rudely to me, especially in front of the manager.

But that's not the worst of it. After I exited the store, the store manager and clerk followed me out and they screamed and yelled out, "This is a whites only business you n****r b***h. We hate your kind and we want your race to die. White Power, White Power." They kept saying white power as I was running to get in my car. I was scared that they were gonna hurt me, or worse, beat me to death. When I got home, I called my mother and my sister and told them what had happened to me. They were relieved to hear that I made it home safe, but they were appalled and shocked to hear about the horrors I went through.

Casey's General Store is a racist business and I can't believe they're still in business. Robert B is right: They do promote discrimination and racial hatred. This is a business that needs to be stopped. I'm urging everyone of every race, color, ethnic group, and religion to boycott Casey's General Store. This is a business that is not going to change their ways and they will continue to promote hate no matter what. This is indeed a business that needs to shut down immediately. Even I recommend that everyone boycotts Casey's General Store permanently and hope that are out of business for good.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Agree but disagree

AUTHOR: Kevin - (United States of America)

I don't believe the part about the chasing down thing, but I have seen some racism in the company.  A person doing that would have lost their job.  They have camera's on the cashier at all times.  I have heard from my old manager about her not being able to hire an employee because of his color, but nothing to that extent.

I USED TO WORK FOR THE BI-WEEKLY NEWSPAPER IN SHELBY COUNTY, TEXAS

AUTHOR: Joe - (U.S.A.)

And I LIVED there and this NONSENSE is TOTALLY FABRICATED and BOGUS!

IN THE FIRST DAMN PLACE, NOBODY CARES WHAT COLOR YOU ARE --IT IS THE COLOR OF YOUR MONEY THAT COUNTS.

AND I DON'T KNOW ANY BUSINESS IN SHELBY COUNTY THAT IS SO PROSPEROUS they can afford to turn down ANY BUSINESS! AND WHEN I LIVED THERE, AFRICAN AMERICANS AND WHITES GOT ALONG BECAUSE MOST OF THEM ARE RELATED IN ONE WAY OR THE OTHER!

AS A NATIVE AMERICAN, I MOVED FREELY BETWEEN BOTH COMMUNITIES AND NEVER SAW EVIDENCE OF ANY RACIAL HATRED. EVERYBODY HAD A PLACE IN THE COMMUNITY AND THERE WERE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL AFRICAN AMERICANS AND EVERYBODY GOT ALONG OK. I NEVER SAW A RACE RIOT OR A LYNCHING --NOT EVEN A CROSS WORD AMONG AFRICAN AMERICANS AND WHITE THE ENTIRE TIME I WAS THERE.

PROBABLY YOU WERE BEING REGARDED WITH SUSPICION AS ANY OTHER STRANGER WOULD BE IN ANY OTHER SMALL EAST TEXAS TOWN. AND THAT IS REGARDLESS OF COLOR, ESPECIALLY SINCE FEDERAL UNDERCOVER LAW ENFORCEMENT HAS BEEN KNOWN TO FREQUENT THE AREA FROM TIME TO TIME.

NOW,GO TAKE YOUR WILD ALLEGATIONS OF RACIAL HATRED TO SOMEPLACE THAT REALLY CARES LIKE SOMALIA...

I AM NOT SAYING THAT THERE MIGHT NOT BE SOME IDIOT FROM THE BACKWOODS THAT DOESN'T KNOW THAT AFRICAN AMERICANS SHARE SOME OF THE SAME DNA AND HUMANITY AS ALL HUMAN BEINGS BUT THE LIKELIHOOD OF SUCH A PRIMITIVE PERSON BEING ABLE TO SUSTAIN A DAY TO DAY BUSINESS OPERATION IS IMPOSSIBLE, JUST LIKE THIS RATHER PATHETIC LIE DESIGNED TO IGNITE RACIAL HATRED WHICH JUST ISN'T THERE.

AND I DO NOT RECALL SHELBYVILLE BEING ON A MAJOR THOROUGHFARE EITHER SO THAT ADDS WEIGHT TO THE FACT THAT YOUR STORY JUST IS NOT TRUE!

Ashley, Why would Toyota Corporation pay over $10 MILLION......

AUTHOR: Karl - (U.S.A.)

to settle a lawsuit by African Americans & Hispanics?

'Google' this- BALTIMORE SETTLEMENT CALIFORNIA TOYOTA, and read it! Mr. & Mrs. Baltimore were the main plaintiffs that case. They are an African American couple.

Why would the Catholic church agree to the LARGEST payout in history for 'SEXUAL HARASSMENT'?

'Google' this- $660 MILLION SETTLEMENT IN PRIEST ABUSES LA ARCHDIOCESES, and read it. This payout made the 'Guiness Book of World Records' for 2009! I'm looking at page 134 right now. It's listed there under- 'Greatest Payout For Sexual Abuse'. On July 15th 2007, 508 people agreed to share this amount- $660 MILLION!

WELCOME TO THE BIGGEST LIE ON EARTH- AMERICA!

#4 Consumer Suggestion

I would contend someone has a bone to grind

AUTHOR: Ashley - (U.S.A.)

There have been no complaints about casey's in missouri ever. Then in the last week 4 reports have been filed all with the same complaints of white power and KKK activity in different areas around the state?

A rational individual could believe that 1 location could have had this issue. BUT multiple locations in multiple cities? This sounds a little fishy to me.

As for casey's prices, I have worked for Git-n-Go, Kum-N-Go, Cody's and frequent casey's and quiktrip. Casey's prices are in line with other convience stores. Their prices are high, but that is industry standard for the buisness.

Why would a clerk go out of his way to chase someone across the parking lot screaming white power? This makes no sense whatsoever.

I believed the first report, but at this point I'm going to have say this is a disgruntled ex-employee or someone with an axe to grind.

'Google' this- BALTIMORE SETTLEMENT CALIFORNIA TOYOTA, and read how Toyota targetted African Americans &....

AUTHOR: Karl - (U.S.A.)

Hispanics, and charged them higher interest rates on their car loans because of their RACE, & their inability to fully comprehend, & understand the English language! 'Baltimore' is the last name of the main plaintiffs in that case. Mr. & Mrs. Baltimore are an African American couple who were TARGETTED by Toyota!!!

BOYCOTT ALL TOYOTA PRODUCTS, INCLUDING LEXUS!!!

Thank you.

HAPPY EASTER!

Why did you stop?

AUTHOR: Inspector - (U.S.A.)

You could have kept driving to another town. You did not need gas just a snack and you KNEW about that place. Why did you stop? Sounds like you where looking for trouble.

I am abhorrent to this type of behavior and I would not go into that place but, I know of places in New york that are the same with whites. You risk your life by going in. I was returning from desert storm on vacation in New york and ended up in one of these neighborhoods, I saw a bar and decided to go in for a drink. I was the only white person in the establishment, everyone was black or proud african americans, I drank quickly and left because everyone was quiet and staring at me. When I got outside there were others waiting for me, I was beaten and robbed and when I reported it to the police they said to me "What were you doing there in the first place?"

By the way I am a PROUD AMERICAN.
