Is Wal-Mart really that bad?

Yes. Although I once partially defended them because it's where a great deal of low-income people can afford to buy necessary items for day-to-day living, I still argued their business practices were horrendous as they basically just wipe any small local business out in any community they come into because they are so wealthy and big they can take hits on their profits in the short term as in the long term they know they will rebound. Also, beyond being a main supporter of slave labor and environmentally destructive products from China, you must read this article from Grist: I wrote about what Wal-Mart was doing in Alabama several weeks ago, but this article builds on that like none other- their reign of racist, economically unjust practices must be stopped!
