We are regular customers at our neighborhood walmart and we have never been faced with any prejudice until today. My daughter, husband, and I went to buy a few groceries and when leaving, one of the store greaters stopped us.
I know that it is required to be stopped but the woman that met us in the front was extremely rude to us and I feel as if it were because we are hispanic. She stopped us and made us explain to her each and every item that we bought, I had no problem with that, but her attitude was completely out of line. We had bought litter for our cat and the women bombarded use with questions and almost was screaming at us that we had to go back and pay for it. When I explained to her that we had paid for the item and showed her the recipe, not only did she not tell us sorry but also she had more of a negative attitude than before.
When she made it obvious enough that we had not stole anything, she finally let us pass. But another woman with more items than us had pass by, the greeter just let her pass. They were both African-American, and my family and I are hispanic.
I honestly felt as if she pointed us out for our race and was judging use base on stereotypes. I will continue shopping but it is unbelievable that a walmart that has mostly minority shoppers has an employee that not only points me and my family out but that they made me feel as if I were less than them because of my race.
