Quote
Walmart has been accused of racism after a viral video appeared to show security tags placed on only darker shades of makeup at a retail outlet.

The video, allegedly taken at an unspecified Walmart in Kentucky, was posted to TikTok on Sunday and had amassed over 900,000 views as of Monday, while also being shared on other platforms like Twitter. The accusation of racism comes less than a year after the company announced that it would stop allowing stores to exclusively lock up beauty products made for people of color after being accused of racism.

"I'm at my local Walmart and I'm just looking at the makeup section and I noticed this," TikTok user @alynicoletta says in the video. "I'm looking at the concealers and they are all normal, but then once you get down to the darker shades, they have little security tags all over them. But they don't for the lighter colors. So, Walmart, tell me that you're racist without actually saying that you're racist."
...
"If I want Suave or Tresemme or Pantene, it's out. The multi-cultural hair care is all locked behind the glass. That's so ridiculous," Lauren Epps, a Black woman who shopped at the store, told KCNC. "The message is clear: We don't trust you... And it's for what? Shampoo? There are bigger things that are happening in the world than people wanting to wash and cleanse their hair."

Quote
Gwen Samuel, who is Black, said a teller at a branch in Southington, Connecticut, refused to complete a withdrawal for her a few weeks ago, and she was forced withdraw the money at another branch.
...
“She hands me my license and she says, ‘I don’t feel comfortable giving you the money,’” Samuel told the station. “So, I got confused, so I said, ‘You don’t feel comfortable giving me the money,’” she said. “She said, ‘Well you just deposited the check yesterday.’”

Samuel then pointed out to the teller that she had already verified the check had cleared.

She was shocked by the teller’s response.

“And she said, ‘Oh yeah, it cleared. The money is available. I just don’t feel comfortable giving it to you,’” Samuel said, adding that the teller never explained why she felt that way.
...
Since there was no policy preventing her from withdrawing the money in her account, Samuel checked the ATM outside of the bank and had no problem taking money out of the account.
...
Samuel isn’t calling for a boycott of TD Bank

I am! BOYCOTT TD BANK at least until the teller is identified and fired!

Steve Carell Karen:

https://us.yahoo.com/news/office-actress-speaks-show-racist-224303220.html

Quote
“The Office” has come under fire for its portrayal of Asian Americans after an actress spoke out about her experience on the hit NBC sitcom. Kat Ahn, who starred as Amy in the holiday episode “A Benihana Christmas,” recalled her time on the show eight years after its finale, according to the Washington Post. In the episode, Steve Carell’s character, Michael Scott, has lunch at the popular Japanese steakhouse chain restaurant which he calls “Asian Hooters.” He invites two Asian waitresses to an office holiday party, marking one of them with ink to tell them apart. He then shows up at the party with two completely different Asian women. Ahn recalled that a coworker at one of her office jobs following her appearance on the show attempted to write on her arm in a nod to the “joke.” The Korean American actress said in a TikTok video from January that she and another Asian American actress were the “uglier versions” of the actresses that played the Benihana workers. “All asian people look alike— we’re one big monolith and one we’re just one big walking stereotype without any personality or individuality,” she says about the episode’s message. “The whole joke was that all Asians look alike and that’s why Michael Scott couldn’t tell us apart. #problematic”

There's more though. Check out what the actual Karens on the show, the "White" female actresses, said to defend the episode (from the same article):
Quote
The stars who played Pam and Angela, Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey, respectively, addressed the racism in the Benihana Christmas episode on their podcast, “Office Ladies.” They agreed that the scene in which Michael draws on the Asian woman made them “cringe.” However, they provided a different explanation for the character returning to the party with two other women. “The idea here was simply that Michael and Andy couldn’t land the original waitresses that they’d been flirting with all night, and then they manage to get these two younger, kind of more naive waitresses to come back with them to the office,”

But why did he think the naive waitresses would be a suitable substitute for the real ones? Because they are "Asian"? If he were courting a "White" woman and didn't manage to land her, would he have brought an unattractive "White" woman in as her replacement? And if not, why not? Is it because he thinks it is because all "Asians" look the same, and therefore it would be hard to spot the difference, but all "Whites" do not look the same, and so therefore it would be easy to tell the difference?

BTW, how do we know Carell is a racist? Couldn't it be that he was just reading his lines? If so, isn't this the fault of the writer/director?

https://www.yahoo.com/news/woman-told-put-mask-inside-051625165.html

Quote
A woman was told to put on a mask inside a Florida Walgreens. Instead she went on a racist and Islamophobic rant against other customers.
...
"She rolls her eyes and looked at me and said: 'you know, I wish I was from your country, so I don't have to wear the mask," Elyamani said.

The suspect, identified as Lubyca Bozanich in a police report reviewed by Insider, also spit on Ebaid's husband, Tamir Elhadad.

In videos posted by Ebaid online, the woman can be heard calling Elyamin and Ebaid, who both wear hijab, "ugly" and ridiculing how they're dressed.

"Why do you have clothes like that?" Bozanich said in the video. "You're ugly! No wonder people hate you! Israelis rule because you guys are ugly."

Ebaid said the women also yelled racist profanities, including the n-word, at a Black employee and later on a Black police officer who showed up to the scene, alongside anti-Asian sentiments.
...
Bozanich can be seen calling the police on video while hurling racist remarks at the family.

"There's Muslims here that are threatening me," she said.

An employee intervenes and tells Bozanich: "Leave them alone. They're humans."

Bozanich responds: "No, they're not. They're Muslims."

When the police showed up, they arrested Bozanich. In the video, one officer asked her where she was originally from. She responded that she's originally from Ukraine.

A Cincinnati- area Walmart employee has been terminated after a Black store patron alleged that the white associate racially profiled her. According to Fox-19, Anternitia O’Neal purchased groceries on May 18. Upon using the self-checkout to pay for the items, she was approached by the unidentified associate and accused of stealing.

During the incident, O’Neal expressed that when the Walmart employee questioned her– she explained that she had paid for the groceries. The employee even called security on O’Neal. Walmart managers also showed up to assess the situation.

“I just feel that words can’t even explain how belittled they made me feel, less of a human, and that’s unfair,” the patron told Fox-19.

To add insult to an already humiliating situation, O’neal’s transaction was viewed via security footage, and management determined that she had purchased all of her groceries.

Walmart told the news outlet that the employee wasn’t fired for racially profiling O’neal– but for not following protocol.
