Kroger Supermarket bans Meade Skelton
Posted by: Richmond Times-Dispatch ()

Local musician Meade Skelton recently learned about the power of the internet and how quickly negative publicity can spread. Posting comments on Tumblr, an online social media site, Skelton publicly announced his observations about employee attitudes at a Kroger Supermarket in Richmond. He said, "I notice its worse with the middle aged Negroes, than the younger ones. I guess they were taught to hate white people."

Skelton later retracted the comments and posted an apology that got him into deeper water with the local African-American community by stating, "I do apologize to anyone - especially those of the colored race."

Sylvia C. Wood, NAACP First Vice President, Richmond Virginia Branch Unit, stated, "It saddens all of us at NAACP to hear racists comments from a local celebrity. We hope Meade will take the time to educate himself on the issues of racial equality and the advancements we have made in Richmond."

In response to Meade Skelton's rant about African-American employees at a local Kroger supermarket, Regional Manager, Scott O'Connell, informed employees that Meade Skelton will be banned from four local Kroger locations.

O'Connell said, "Kroger is proud to be an equal opportunity employer and strongly condemns any bias based on race, creed, sexual orientation or religion." He continued, "Our employees are proud to work for Kroger and our decision to ban a customer does not come lightly. We stand behind our employees."

O'Connell said a certified letter would be sent to Meade Skelton to inform him of their decision.

I love it!

Doesn't "uppity negro" mean a black man who thinks he's equal to white people? Just the fact that he used those words says a lot about his racial prejudices.

I also didn't realize that "colored" was a race.

So what race is Meade? The "mentally challenged race"?

LOL - She called him a celebrity. If Meade reads this, that's all he'll see and remember.

Wait a sec. A supermarket can actually ban someone from shopping there? Without doing something illegal?

I call bullshit on this one.

I heard Kroger will hire four guards, equipped with high powered binoculars, and position them in front of each store. If Meade Skelton is seen in any of these locations, be it on foot, on bicycle or on motor scooter, the local police will be contacted and Meade's entrance to the facility will be barred.

I call bull shit too. The article is well written so I give the author credit for that but here is a Google search of an EXACT string appearing in said article: "Skelton later retracted the comments". The only hit is here.

Fine; lets say this site is indexed at a faster clip than the Richmond Times Dispatch and it simply isn't showing up in search results yet... Well that's not the case either. Here is a search for "Meade Skelton" from http://www2.timesdispatch.com/ which is The Richmond Times-Dispatche's website which turns up 13 results with the most recent being September 6, 2012.

Here is a search into the same site but from Google which (not surpisingly) turned up more results than using RTD's own internal search...but still nothing about this.

Maybe I missed it, but I doubt it.

FFXU people stop trying to cash in on Meade's Richmond celebrity. You guys keep commenting on the blog to try and claim him. He belongs to Richmond. No matter if he grew up in Loudoun County. Hes from Richmond. Let them have him. People just want to talk about him because he's somewhat well known there. Its sort of ironic all the smack they talk about him here and then when it shows that hes known somewhere, they try and claim him . Whatever.

OMG, he is soooo fucking retarded. He makes fun of hipsters but strives to be a hipster! Hipsters like stupid shit like manual typewriters, dial telephones, Colonel Sanders suits and trendy coffee houses.

Gawd, I just want to punch him in the throat!

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let's be realistic, Meade is a trailer park whitey with little education. He didn't know any better.

I guess Meade will be having a hard time getting shows in Richmond now.

I'm waiting for Meade's new single "I love slave negreos, Yes'm mammy I do!"
