Today I was at a drugstore and this blonde tacky girl who works there, decided to follow me around cause she thought I was stealing. I smiled at her and she kept looking dirty at me, she takes her collegeau with her and decided to follow me around, I decided to stay classy and just walk away, I am SICK AND TIRED of the racism, I live down south in Holland and the racism is just getting too much, they keep making comments at workplace, its hard to make friends, I lived here for 23 years and stil can't seem to make friends easily while I am a friendly person. I also dont want to move away because im dont move for others. Or should I just go? I am a black woman by the way, maybe she was just jealous of my looks , she has never seen a pretty black girl before.

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.1

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.0
