Clothing Mannequins Hanging From Ceiling At Walmart Seen As Racist

There was a major controversy over clothing mannequins suspended from the ceiling at a North Las Vegas Walmart earlier this week.

While it might just seem like a creative marketing technique to some, other patrons of the suburban Wal-Mart store apparently felt the hanging mannequins clothed with sale items had racist overtones.

Controversy over Mannequins at North Las Vegas Wal-Mart

Local TV station KTNV took a picture of the hanging clothing display and showed it a sampling of people on the street.

“I see someone walking through the apparel section of Walmart," according to one middle-aged man.

Another female shopper at the Walmart said it "looks like prices and racks of clothes.”

Although some saw nothing unusual in the hanging mannequins, other customers found the display troubling and possibly racist.

"Halloween's gone, but you still have four black figures hanging from the ceiling," one man noted.

Another man described the mannequins as “four black items hanging from the ceiling as if they were four black people.”

A female shopper went so far as to say the display looked “a little like the Ku Klux Klan, black people hanging from the ceiling.”

Walmart has taken down the offending display, but as of Wednesday morning, the retailer has not officially responded or apologized.
