WalMart's Little Black Book Section

At many area Walmarts, the book section is extremely well-organized.

The self-help books are here . . . the religion section is there . . . cooking and diet books farther down . . . and right over here is the black section.

You think I'm kidding?

At Walmart, apparently, skin color trumps all.

Bob Dyer, a Beacon Journal Columnist, writes about WalMart segregating titles by subjects' skin color. Not all of them, but 'many'. Whooooooa.

Is this just in the US? Does it happen in Canada?
