The Sad Truth
I love the State where I call home. That is the state of South Carolina. One of my favorite work family members was getting married and wanted a Tiara for her wedding. I was so, so excited as I knew of the best place to go. I reminisced on how nice and helpful everyone had always been at the bridal boutique that I had shopped at many times over the course of the years. I was happy to take her there and then have lunch together. Although we were the only shoppers in the store with four employees, no one would greet us, offer their assistance or even talk to us at all. I could not figure out what in the world was going on. I told my friend that I had no clue what was going on. She told me that she did and for us to go. As we were leaving she told ne that the sales clerks would not assist us because she was black. I was in total disbelief over what she told me. Needless to say, I never entered that store I once loved after that teachable moment.
I do not see people’s worth based on the color of their skin, I see their worth based on the goodness in their soul. Everyone should be treated equal no how light or dark their skin color is.
