    So, Wal Mart will no longer lock up items they call "multicultural hair and beauty products". Products that are often stolen are locked up or have devices on them to prevent theft. High end golf balls even do.

    My favorite part of the article is one we all could relate to, before they dumped their pistol and rifle ammo.

    "In my neighborhood Walmart, you have to go find somebody and then if they don't have the key, they have to find somebody, so you're just standing there waiting, sometimes for as long as 10 to 15 minutes," Bell said.

    Pee on 'em. Cracker Barrel should say it's about the edible cracker and that's our name, don't come if you don't like it.

    The way this whole thing is snowballing reminds of dealing with children. If they throw a tantrum and demand something you cannot just give in because it's the easiest option. They sometimes also break things or threaten to break things. Too bad ! Once you start giving in you're done for.

    Easy solution, to account for the increased shrink / theft, mark up the products 1000%.

    Yeah, I'm sure raising prices only in minority communities would go over well. LOL

    One day, I asked the manager at Albertson's why the baby products were locked up behind the service desk. His response was that the crack mothers would shoplift them. Since that time, I have observed other supermarkets follow the same protocol. Way to go moms!

    walmart should just stop carrying the products, if the theft is an issue.

    Oh the irony. Many of these "multicultural hair and beauty products" are used to help them look more like white folks. Hair straightener, weaves, wigs, etc. Can you say Culture Appropriation lol!!
