So, a white woman asked for your ID and a black woman didn't. And following this logic, if the patron had been white, the white woman wouldn't have asked for his ID and the black woman would have.
What does this have to do with the system?
If anything, this was a case of personal racism. And I'm not even convinced of that. I was in the store yesterday and the guy ahead of me paid with plastic. She asked for his ID. They were both white. It's a common thing to ask for ID when someone is paying with plastic or even a check.

Think about it. If you're black, you probably stole a credit card, or that nice car, or those nice clothes, or whatever.
Sorry. I don't buy that.
If you see a black person driving a Jaguar, you pull the guy over because he probably stole the car. If you see a black person paying for something with plastic, ID them because they probably stole the card. If you see a black person dressed in expensive clothes, frisk them because they probably have drugs on them.
I'm sorry, I think you're living in the 60s. I see all kinds of successful black people today. It's just not an issue anymore. Unless of course, you're looking for it around every corner.
The thought that the black man in the Infiniti is a hard-working citizen NEVER enters your mind, outside of some kind of joke.
This is a fantasy. Again. The truth is that it would never enter my mind that he stole the car.
And if black people somehow managed to come up, whites could kill them and destroy their wealth legally. Check out Black Wall Street ...
OK, maybe not the 60s. More like the 20s.
But you'll say that it's us black people who are always making distinctions about race.
I don't say that it's you black people. I say it's you, truthseeka who is always making the distinctions about your race.
Who is it that always asks for your race in sections of paperwork, for hospitals, surveys, schools, government-related agencies, etc.
They ask for EVERYONE's race! They don't discriminate. And you have the option of not answering that question.
I do agree with you, the system needs some work. It sucks, in fact. But I don't think your example at the gift shop is an indication of that. Like I said, most likely, it was the white woman AND the black woman exercising racial prejudice.
