This was a social experiment to see how many people would rush to the aid of blacks.

Anyways, after that, I went across the street. I looked pretty pissed off I suppose. I went into a circuit city to look at some video games and computers while I waited for my father to come by and pick me up.
During the time I had several employees coming up, asking me if I needed help. They then hovered around within several feet of me.

I thought that showing you a generic search result showing consistently the same trend would be more meaningful than showing you simply a single link that you could find some trivial reason to dismiss, like you tried to do anyway with this little comment...
Yes, I understand that it's terribly inconvenient for you that black men insist on raping a different number of white women every year. I apologize. Perhaps you'd like to ask them to rape white women at a more regular rate?
I'm sorry, I hadn't realized that asking women to identify the race of their rapist was such an inaccurate way of figuring it out
What evidence would you like me to provide other than reported crimes? Would you rather I simply make stuff up at random like you appear to be doing? I'm sorry...I thought providing you with eleven years history of Department of Justice statistics would be better than making something up.
But I think anyone who does not dress up to shop these days is going to get very poor treatment, at least that has been my experience.
People who don't look like they have a lot of money are going to get ignored and treated like dirt while stores work on commission the way they do.
We had a shrinkage control specialist come in and give us training on how we were supposed to treat every customer like a potential thief.
Most people are not going to get involved in a situation like that. It's sad, but that's the way most people act.

Has anyone anywhere ran into a situation like, just straight discrimination. If you have what was your response. Did you say anything or did you just stay out of it? Moreover, should an outside party get involved in this situation?
