Fashion Bug in the Thruway Mall engages in racial profiling. If you are suspected of stealing, in other words a black woman, the cashiers (who are always white) rub your items on a strip behind the counter. This causes the sensors to go off when you are going through the doorway. When the sensors go off a store clerk (usually black or latin) come over and check you bags.

    The associates may be rude but that strip their rubbing is for jwelery and at are store those strips dnt deactivate because those strips are worthless so when the buzzers go off their just making sure that they didn't leave a security tag on.

    Are you stupid..the strip they rub is to desensitize the sensor so that it doesn't go off. Which in some cases it does not always work. Cut it with the racial profiling [censor]. You black always use that excuse

    you are an idiot, I have worked at FB for nine years, to get through grad school. All of the costume jewelry items have sensors on the back of them. We have to deactivate all of them or the sensormatics go off. This has nothing to do with your race, or the fact you are one of those customers that treat us like we are lower than we are, when actually we are in grad school and smarter than you will ever strive to be . You are ignorant, and guess what we associates hear this "race complaint" every day when you [censor]es come in and try and return stuff you wore out the night before, or cause a distraction in the store because we won't take your EXPIRED coupons, because you didn't get your fat lazy [censor] in before the duedate. But of course, according to people like you, everything is our fault, so keep making excuses
