WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. – Police say they have made an arrest in the case of a racial comment being made over the public-address system at a Walmart store in southern New Jersey.
Washington Township Police declined to comment early Saturday.
A male voice came over the Walmart public address system Sunday evening and calmly announced: "Attention, Walmart customers: All black people, leave the store now." The announcement provoked an immediate apology from the store manager.
Officials for Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart Stores Inc., said the announcement was "unacceptable."
