I used to work retail, unfortunately the majority of thieving was done by black people, so it's not racism it's just that you fit the description because other black people are giving you a bad name, it's not your fault and it's not the fault of the assistant following you around, it's the fault of the black people who are stealing. It's like f most people who are robbing stores wear red, you're gonna follow someone who walks in wearing red. This blind crybaby attitude does you no favors.

I can relate as a black person living in the deep south in the US. Whenever my friends and I go to the high end mall we are relentlessly followed and treated like criminals. One day this lady was so blatantly following us, that I whispered to my friend that we should mess with her. So my friend walked up close to her and I went to the back end, then we quickly switched it up, then we circled around her in circles, we both went to the back, then to the front of the store. It was ridiculous. I'm with the other commenters... if they want to follow you, make them work. Make them get stuff from the top shelf or go look something up or you know actually help you find whatever it is you're looking for or remind them that their store has cameras, and you don't really need two pairs of eyes following you around at all times, when one will do just fine.
