As far as the demographic makeup of the store employees are concerned I believe they're accurate for the area in which the store is located and they likely reflect the demographic ratios within the applicant pool. This is bunk and I hope it gets dismissed as bunk. On the other hand, the manager of West County was thrown under the bus by Apple corporate in similar circumstances...

Yea CT you're right, it should have stopped at the first post. Rob Proffer is one if the most honest guys I've ever worked with. He tells you as it is, and doesn't sugar coat anything. He is straight forward and that's why he's one of the best managers I've worked for. I consider myself a good friend of CT and know that what he said above about Rob is the absolute truth. I'm not saying that there couldn't be racism at the Apple Stores here in STL, but that is not the question at hand. There isn't a member of the management team at the Galleria store that I can even consider remotely racially judgmental. This needs to be dismissed and I can only hope that this doesn't tarnish Rob's reputation. Barbara in her mind feels she's been wronged and for that I feel for her, but she's taking it out on the wrong person. She should really re-evaluate the situation.

Oh and I've also known plenty of white males at Apple St. Louis that couldn't get promoted to full time or management -- even after years of service. So again, this lawsuit is bunk!
