Inclination for Discrimination

(This conversation takes place over the course of several emails. The email system we use does not reveal our full name, but our first name is applied to the bottom of messages.)

Customer: Your stores need better standards. I went into the one in Deluth today and all of the employees were women. I’d rather see a color guy behind the counter then a woman. They don’t know about video games. They should be fired and you all can give jobs to more good, honest, white men. So what are you all going to do about this?

(This normally would be filtered into the trash bin, but since he requested a response, we have to give one.)

Me: [blank] is a company that believes in diversity. We do not discriminate anyone based on age, race, gender, or religion. If someone is of legal age and wants to work for us, they can certainly apply. We appreciate your comments and will forward them to the store’s manager. If there’s anything else we can do to assist, please let us know.

Customer: I didn’t say I was racist! Keep the color folks. I just want the women gone!
