If the person in the user pic is really her, then no, this person was not black. The above quote implies that she was the homeless teen in the story...am I right NotSoInnocent?
I think your thinking of the wrong story. The race card issue was referring to the "snatch and grab" lady with the chains.

Was she black?

Many non-white shoppers believe that stores assume the worst about them and as a consequence, they get lesser service than whites.

I'm sure she thought you would have shown a white person everything all at once as she asked.
Although the policy was to not show more than 3 chains at a time? Did you read that? When will people realize that businesses DO NOT PUT poilicies just to alienate people of race!

BTW, I am an african american and I KNOW that businesses have rules that they have to follow regardless of my race.

BTW, what makes you think that its only black people? What about chinese, native american, hispanic people? Why do people automatically assume that its a black person? Like only black people who pull the race card? I don't appreciate you generalizing only black people. People of other races are also capable of pulling the race card.

Did you read what I posted?

Let me try again.

Members of minority groups are prone to BELIEVE (rightly or wrongly) that when a clerk falls back on company policy as grounds not to give them what they want, the real reason is something else.

Like racism.

Or thinking that folks of his race/ethnicity are shoplifters.

And the folks most like to be singled out for such treatment are, unfortunately, black.

In this case, when the clerk cited company policy for not showing her more than 3 necklaces at a time, it sounded like how jewelry stores often treat black customers.

And from how the original post read, in which the customer kept being turned down when she asked to be shown more than 3 necklaces at a time, I wondered whether the customer was black. Because jewelry stores are notorious for mistreating blacks.

Stop reading more into my post than the plain meaning of my words.

Can we avoid the race war in this thread, please? I'm about to close it unless it goes back on topic.

Yeah, race wars are stupid.

Hell, everyone knows that if we raced, my Chevy would beat any Ford or Dodge!

So why fight about such obvious race questions?

Don't be so sure - the early Mustangs (with the V12 engines) can outrun any Chevy.



Seriously, though - I'd like to see you try to beat a Ford model 5-AT in a Toronto to Rochester race.

Anakah, from the context it looks like they're talking about their loss prevention policy.
