Sheetz Dixie Highway Asheboro North Carolina — managers emily bennett & courtney jones
After viewing the video of two people on motorcycles speaking with the police officers that arrived after the two managers called the police on a group of motorcyclists, including black people for "playing loud music", I am convinced that these two women did not want them at their store because of the color of heir skin.
I will not stand for racism in my own hometown. My husband and I fill up our truck and our car at least once a week at sheets in Ashboro, and I get my coffee there every day. We will not frequent this location until something is done with these two women. Whether they issue a public apology, whether they resign, or whether they are fired.
People of color deserve better than this. They deserve every right that is given to everyone else. They deserve to be able to get gas in peace, they deserve to be able to frequent a gas station and purchase items in peace, and not be harassed by their managers. I hope to hear that something has been done expeditiously.
