Pending approval from its national
leadership, the local chapter of the
NAACP will join chapters from five other^,
states in a boycott against SalisburyXfea<ed
Food Lion Inc., a fast-growing super
I market chain.
"Of course, we plan to participate in
the boycott," said local NAACP President
Pat Hairston. "We are just waiting
for the word ro."

anything. Qf the 211 stores, only three

The data Hairston refers to are outlined
in a three-page report prepared by L. R.

1982^ the report says.? ?
"Food Lion's profits were more than
$21 million (in 1982). Therefore, black
people constitute more than four times its
margin of profit."
According to independent research
(Food Lion would not participate in the
fact-finding survey.), the report says, of
the 8,764 people employed by the stores,
almost all black workers hold low-level
jobs. "... It appears that, out of 211 store
managers, only three are black,' the
report says. "Three managers represent
only one and one-half percent of their
store management. Our (the black) share
is 21 store managers."
The report also charges that Food Lion
