Once Upon A Child — Racism
Went into Once Upon A Time store on October 4, 2012 at around 1:30 pm. A blonde caucasion woman around her late 20's took one look at me and rudely said if I can put my bags behind the counter, they dont allow bags in store. Only purses or backpacks. Store is located inside a shopping center, and bags were purchases from other stores. Was not greeted or anything. Thats the first thing I was told when I just walked in. I am a Mexican woman in my early 30"s, never stole anything in my life. Why would I steal from a second hand store! Then a caucasion man entered the store (with a couple bags) and there were two other caucasion ladies already inside store when I walked in. She greeted the man with a smile, asked the other ladies if they needed help. Did not acnowledge me one bit. But she did try to follow me around the store and tried not to make it obvious. But I know what she was doing. Was going to say something to her because I just felt embarrased, shocked, and sick to my stomach. I just asked for my bags and left the store.
