The suit, announced by the EEOC on Sept. 21, alleged that Bass Pro, since at least November 2005, has been denying qualified blacks and Hispanics retail positions such as cashier, sales associate, team leader, supervisor and manager.
The lawsuit specifically cited incidents at Bass Pro locations in Texas, Louisiana and Indiana.
Founded in the early 1970s, Missouri-based Bass Pro operates 58 stores throughout the United States and Canada. Bridgeport is one of four more planned locations.

I can see sharpton and jackson grabbing their running shoes and megaphones already.
Just another government shakedown of a private business on behalf of Eric Holder’s people and the other self-styled professional victims groups that constitute the Democratic Party.
I say pull the pin on CT and go to GA or some other state.
There is such a thing as randomness.
But I guess our gubermint overlords demand discrimination against the white devil.
Another out of control, Kafkaesque Federal agency that needs to be eliminated.
Part of their anti-gun, anti-white, anti-rural campaign. One more reason to vote for the other guy.
I have heard a lot of disparaging remarks from several largemouth regarding their neighborhood smallmouths. I just took it as a fish tale.
I’ve been rung up by a black female cashier a number of times at the Mobile Bass Pro.
I’ve been waiting on by a flaming waiter at the restauruant here...
What is this bullcrap EEOC?
Was she polite and friendly? Because I think the EEOC only collects complaints from the angry.
Yes, she was very nice.
Things have been slow over there in EEOC-land, huh?
IOW, Morris did not pay to play.
We have only more of this to expect once Obamacare kicks in, when party affiliation will determine early life or death.
“qualified blacks and Hispanics retail positions “
Obama and Holder’s racist definition of ‘qualified’ is simply their color of their skin.
Blacks make up 12.5% of the population. The high school graduation rate for blacks was 47%, giving an average of 5.8% of 18 year old males even remotely ‘qualified’ to work retail are black.
Toss in all kinds of other issues young black males have getting to work, keeping work, criminal records, actually having an education and not just passed through graduation and that number could easily be less than 1% of the population are qualified black males aged 18.
That is only 1 in 100 of 18 year olds are qualified black males. If a Bass Pro store had so much as 1 black male that probably had more than the average number.
