    The employees who were involved in the incident will not be working in the store pending the findings of our investigation," a company spokesman said.

    CVS apologized Sunday to a black customer who said a white manager called the police after deciding that a coupon she tried to use at a Chicago pharmacy was fraudulent.

    "CVS is actively investigating what happened and we will take any corrective action that is warranted based on the outcome of our investigation," company spokesman Mike DeAngelis said in a statement. "The employees who were involved in the incident will not be working in the store pending the findings of our investigation."

    DeAngelis added that CVS has "firm non-discrimination policies in place to help ensure that all customers are treated with respect and dignity. Profiling or any other type of discriminatory behavior is strictly prohibited."

    The customer, Camilla Hudson, said in a Facebook post that she presented the coupon for a defective product to a pharmacy manager last week. The manager told her he'd never seen a similar coupon and believed it was a fraud.​

    I originally saw this story on TV news and the manager on the phone was shaking so badly I though maybe he suffers from a medical condition like Parkinson's or something. If he was shaking because he was truly that terrified I can only wonder what he thought was going to happen to him.

    Of course he was terrified. Black people can wig out any moment. He probably thought he was going to be murdered and his store destroyed.

    It might still be. The mob could descend any minute. Had the customer been white, this would not be any story at all and would be dismissed as a non-event and simple mix-up. Had the white lady complained, she would have been told to shut up. Just because it involved a black lady, it suddenly becomes a "race" issue, a conspiracy, and the wire carries it everywhere immediately. The media make sure people only hear these stories when it involves a black person so automatically assume that it is racially motivated because everytime they read such a story, its always another black person!

    I never heard of a white person having the cops called because they tried to use the wrong coupon.

    Have you?
