The following situation occurred this past weekend of January 2011. It's sad and very distasteful that well in to the 21st Century that some folks in society cannot see past the color of one's skin. God help us all. Igonorance and prejudice is just fear and the world being in the condition that it is, we should all be fearful of one powerful being and that is God. Genesis 1:27
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

INCIDENT:
If there is any doubt that racism still exists--I can confirm that. Today I went to a Vera Bradley sale at A Different Point of View on Monroe Avenue in Rochester, NY. Every person in the store was carrying a Vera Bradley purse or wallet but the security guard approached the only BLACK person in the store (ME) and accused me of placing an object in my purse. He escorted me outside the store where he had 4 armed police officers waiting. I showed him MY Vera Bradley wallet with MY credit cards, MY drivers license and MY cash in it. I was in the store, which was packed with shoppers (ALL WHITE) for several hours shopping and had accumulated several hundred dollars in purchases to make but I was the only person he accused of shoplifting--the only BLACK person in the store. After he apologized, I gave the items I had planned to purchase to the Manager and expressed how offended I was to be publicly humiliated and I will NEVER purchase anything from that store again. Upon exiting the store (empty handed), the police officers had departed. So I guess they called them to arrest the BLACK GIRL shoplifting. I share this with you, my Facebook family and urge you to NEVER SHOP AT THAT STORE!!!!

A Different Point of View has a great selection of hard-to-find gifts---home accents, hand bags, clothing, etc. They also carry the best selection of Brighton Jewelry.
