Matalan Are Racist?
Yesterday I went to Matalan to get some new t-shirts. I know that Matalan have a reputation of attracting a certain type of shopper, but I do like their range of funny t-shirts and they are very reasonably priced so that is me sold.
There are 2 floors in the store in Dalston, the men’s stuff is on the top floor. I bought 3 new t-shirts and wondered over to the paying area on the top floor where there was one black woman behind the counter serving a line of black women and men.
She looked up at me and told me quite bluntly to go and pay downstairs, as I was on the escalator I saw two black women join the queue and a white woman being told to go downstairs to pay for her item.
I wonder what would possibly happen if this as reversed?
