Hey everyone, I wanted to talk to you today about labels and stereotypes. I spoke to and helped a great Irish couple today. They were the nicest customers I spoke to all day. There was a store detective watching them the whole time and it makes me sad as they had no intention of stealing anything and spent hundreds of pounds with us. It was the fact of where they are from of the community to which they might belong that meant they were watched like a thief. I didn't realize my shopping center had the store detectives but the poor male customer did,as he said he gets it everywhere he goes.
I would hope we could move on from prejudice and embrace different people not assume they are something they may not be.
Take care x
