Embrassing Thing For Wal-Mart

When it’s automated movie suggestion ‘randomly’ linked “a Planet of the Apes DVD to films about African-Americans including Martin Luther King Jr.” Yeah, that’s really bad now “Wal-Mart must not only explain how this could possibly happen, but owes all of America, especially African-Americans, an apology for what was either a racist joke or just incredibly bad judgment”. Now my question was who wrote the program that makes the automated movie suggestions? See then it would be a matter of explaining that the system ‘suggested’ this, ‘randomly’ of course that the movie was about African-Americans including Martin Luther King Jr. Of course this would be after the apology but I don’t think it was done intentionally or that it was bad judgment just a bad system. But then again with Wal-Mart you never know.
