Buckle Reatil Store / Racial Profiling
Yesterday I was shopping for Chrisman’s gift in a large chain store (BUCKLE RETAIL STORE) after getting several items I placed does items in the counter and continued shopping. After a couple of minutes two police officers entered the store and went into the rear of the store, I was thinking they must have a shoplifter in the rear and paid them no mine and continued to shop. Seconds later they approached me and began to question me, off course I was chocked of the reason why. Well long story short after they left and took my information and the embarrassment of getting surrounded like I was a criminal or stealing. I asked the store why the police was call and the Assistant Manager explain to me that because I had over 500 in merchandise I was probably or likely or possibly going to rob the store. ??? Excuses me. I really was so upset and mad that I could do nothing but smile. Needles to say I didn’t purchased the items and left the store extremely upset. After getting home I called the Corporate Office to voice my compliant and they would not even return my call and all they said was “thank you for you feedback” WOW that all I have to said about that, in other words they do not condemn racial profiling in the stores. Well if that’s not racial profiling then I don’t know what it is. I’m not African American but my skin color is of dark completion and I guess that automatically makes me a criminal. Buckle shame on you.
