Target Sued Over Their Pretty Offensive Training Document

quote:

Three former employees of Target have filed suit against the company, alleging that their management, among other things, distributed a training document clarifying that not every Hispanic "wears a sombrero."


quote:

"This document instructs managers to note differences among Hispanic employees, and states the following: "a. Food: not everyone eats tacos and burritos; "b. Music: not everyone dances to salsa; "c. Dress: not everyone wears a sombrero; "d. Mexicans (lower education level, some may be undocumented); "e. Cubans (Political refugees, legal status, higher education level); and "f. They may say 'OK, OK' and pretend to understand, when they do not, just to save face."



Target becomes the target

Objetivo debería avergonzarse.

It's all true, what's the big deal?

fricking hate this.


And

quote:

Music: not everyone dances to salsa;


They're worse than any group about blaring music. Was at the park in Texas letting my son play and a crazy amount of vehicles would pass by playing Latin music. One lady parked, sat on her tailgate and blasted mariachi music as her kid played at the playground. It's obnoxious.

Most everytime I'm walking into work I can hear Mexican circus music playing loudly from the apartments across the street from the hospital.

I bet those employees were illegal anyways. I also bet that they love tacos and burritos and salsa dancing.

Everyone eats tacos, burritos or a combination of both. Everyone.

What they mean is "not everyone eats tacos and burritos 4nights a week when they're not eating fajitas, tostadas or taco salad"

And it's not that it's "bc I don't get their music" it's aggravating when blacks and whites do it too. Hispanics are the worst about it though.

We were with my family in the Houston area during the 4th and they were blaring it from their vehicles during the Independence Day firework show. Shouldn't have bothered me, but it did.
