Followed in a Store
It’s easy to get racist vibes when you’re followed around a convenience store but it’s a tricky proposition. Most people, black, white, whatever, about to commit a crime are dressed for the part. A black man wearing stereotypical clothing made famous by the media (a hoodie) is more likely to be hawked in the store than one wearing a business suit.
As someone that has tested this theory out on multiple occasions I can tell you its exceedingly easy to shoplift when you’re dressed for a corporate office. So when you’re getting a watchful eye from a store clerk or owner, take solace in the fact that though you are being profiled, it isn’t necessarily race related.
