    Why are people acting like black and white people are treated in society as equal in America of all places.
    How could you not see racial profiling when they were the only women accused.
    Only black women in the store.
    Forced to leave the store and pay the bill from yesterday (that they allegedly stole) and leave their meal prematurely but pay for that one too.
    Be escorted out by police.
    Have a condescending officer not listen to you when you have proof that you haven't been at the store the day before.
    Do you live in the USA?

    Addressing your latest posts, if they mistakingly identify the two customers as yesterday's thieves, then it's understandable and not racist if they look similar - if not, then I'm not sure what motifs the staff had in mind, and there could be a possibility of racism towards those certain customers (slightly doubt it), as well as other reasons (though I don't believe that much people would consider racism to be the sole reason for the women being kicked out if one of the them on Facebook didn't point out that she believed she was being racially profiled).

    The two customers paying extra and being banned from the store is very unfair if they weren't involved with yesterday's robbery though.

    One doesn't need to live somewhere to be concerned by their behaviour...
