沃爾瑪將停止把專為黑人設計的美容美發產品放進防盜玻璃柜中的做法,因為這種做法被批有歧視之嫌。

一般而言,零售商店常把容易被盜竊的物品,比如剃須刀刀片和化妝品,上鎖在陳列柜中。顧客若要拿到物品,則需告知店員打開柜子。

此前,位于丹佛市的一家沃爾瑪商店把白人常用的洗發水和護發素產品放在敞開貨架上,卻將黑人常用的產品放在了上鎖的盒子中,這讓部分顧客感到憤怒。因此,沃爾瑪表示將終止這種做法。而在美國黑人男子被白人警察虐殺引發大規??掛榛疃?,沃爾瑪也承諾將成為反對種族主義的領袖。

6月10日,該公司發布消息稱,“我們每天為數百萬不同種族背景的顧客提供服務,我們已經決定不再將多元文化的護發和美容產品放在上鎖的柜子里?!?

我們每天為數百萬不同種族背景的顧客提供服務。我們已經決定不再將多元文化的護發和美容產品放在上鎖的柜子里。在美國4700家門店中,只有十幾家這樣做。

這家美國最大的私營雇主正試圖帶領美國企業解決不平等和種族歧視的問題。上周,沃爾瑪的首席執行官董明倫表示,該公司和沃爾瑪基金會將投入1億美元,建立一個新的種族平等中心。

該中心“將努力尋求經濟機會和更健康的生活方式,包括促進勞動力市場發展、完善相關教育制度、支持刑事司法改革等?!?/p>

盡管許多零售商承諾為反對種族主義捐款,但他們也因為多年來的歧視性做法而飽受批評。梅西百貨的首席執行官杰夫·根內特在本周早些時候表示,為抗擊種族主義,該公司將做出更多的努力。幾年前,梅西百貨曾經因為涉嫌種族歧視而被起訴,但該公司也是多元文化的長期支持者。(財富中文網)

Walmart will stop locking up black beauty and hair care products in glass anti-theft cases in the wake of criticism that the practice was discriminatory.

Retailers, notably mass-merchandise stores and drugstores, often lock up items they deem at high risk of shoplifting such as razor blades and cosmetics, requiring customers to have a store employee unlock the cases.

Walmart drew ire from some customers following a television report about a store in Denver that had similar products for nonblack hair openly on its shelves. So the company, which has pledged to be a leader in fighting racism in the wake of recent nationwide protests against police brutality, said it is ending the practice.

"We serve millions of customers every day from diverse backgrounds. We have made the decision to discontinue placing multicultural hair care and beauty products in locked cases," the company tweeted on June 10.

We serve millions of customers every day from diverse backgrounds. We have made the decision to discontinue placing multicultural hair care and beauty products in locked cases. This practice was recently in place in about a dozen of our 4,700 stores nationwide.

— Walmart (@Walmart) June 10, 2020

The end of the practice comes at a time when Walmart, the largest private U.S. employer, is trying to take the lead in how corporate America addresses inequity and racial discrimination in the workplace, from recruitment and career advancement to training and board representation, among other critical issues. Last week, Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said the company and the Walmart Foundation will commit $100 million over five years to create a new center on racial equity.

That center "will seek to advance economic opportunity and healthier living, including issues surrounding the social determinants of health, strengthening workforce development and related educational systems, and support criminal justice reform with an emphasis on examining barriers to opportunity faced by those exiting the system."

While many retailers have pledged monetary contributions to fight racism and injustice, they have also been criticized for discriminatory practices over the years or falling short in efforts to fight inequality. Macy's, which a few years ago was sued for alleged racial profiling of shoppers in its anti-shoplifting procedures but is also a longtime proponent of diversity, could and will do more, the department store's CEO Jeff Gennette said earlier this week. And as Bloomberg reported last week, Target, also an active proponent of diversity, has very few black executives in its leadership ranks.
