On September 1st of 2011 I decided to purchase a hair brush and deodorant because i was heading out of town. All the other stores in this area close early so i had no choice. On past visits, I've had the manager on duty ring me up and she always uses the counterfeit money detector pen when i pay. Mind you, I've lived in this neighborhood for 6 years, have been a loyal customer but yet get treated like a criminal. On this recent visit there were several people (females) in line, all were rung up without any incident or extra scrutinization. Without fail, as soon as i got to the counter, i got the same "pen" treatment. I believe this manager profiles black males. If it was once, i would say it's procedure, but everytime I've shopped there and she's cashier? That's profiling. I kept patronizing this establishment because i felt like that was the best way to confront her prejudice and racist antics. This is my first step and will be followed up by a letter to the corporate office. I've tried to be as reasonable as possible, but September 1st was my breaking point.
