Black Customer Video Records Racial Profiling At Old Navy
Even in the year 2018 we still can’t walk into stores and shop without becoming victims of racial profiling by employees.
On Tuesday, an Iowa man named James Conley III posted the following Facebook post documenting the racist treatment he received at a local Old Navy store.
According to KCCI, Conley was in the check-out line with several other white customers who were wearing similar clothing, somehow he was the only one accused of trying to steal the jacket he was wearing when he walked into the store.
“I found two hoodies and I went to the cash register to check out, and I was asked if I (was) going to purchase the jacket I had on,” Conley said, adding that he got the jacket as a Christmas gift.
Conley said he thought the question was a joke until the employee told him his jacket needed to be scanned because it came from Old Navy.
“There were customers, Caucasian, in front of me and behind me who had on Old Navy apparel similar to what I had on, and they didn’t get checked or anything,” Conley said.
