Last night while watching the news, there was yet another story about a Black person being racially profiled while shopping at Barney’s in New York.
According to this link: http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2013/10/23/2826451/barneys-shopping-black/ the young man was detained for “suspicion of theft” after paying for his items.
Haven’t we heard this before? Oprah even can’t get a break from it.
A few months ago, one of my co-workers actually experienced being stalked by a white clerk at Nordstrom’s in Miami while on vacation. It upset her and her daughter so bad; she just left. Mind you…she could afford anything in the store.
Back in 2011; I posted a video that was from the series What Would You Do? It highlighted the reactions of white people when Black people while shopping. Very interesting…
Yet….white folks still want to insist that racism doesn’t exist.
