    I am so sick of that "racist" card. Like I said before 50% of whites voted for Obama, more than 90% of blacks voted for Obama, who do you really think are the racists?

    I would guess that was the reason for his termination and not defending himself which the police determined was justified. Of course, it is probably bullshit. But all they have to do is say the word... I am wondering if "negro" will now be acceptable when being punched in the face. We're going to have to ask Obama I guess.

    The video clearly shows him throwing a punch, thus he fought with a customer. As a greeter, it's not his job to tussle with a customer, even one who may have shoplifted. If the kid took his clip board...fine, let him have it and walk away. Those store usually have security, call them and allow them to deal with the kid.

    In regards to the supposed racial slur, well, since all of the evidence isn't available, I'll hold my opinion.

    Looks like Employee of the Month material to me. Maybe Wal-Mart was worried about a worker's comp suit.

    I'd have a choice epithet for him, too, taking a swing at a guy three times his age.
