Racism and ignorance clearly evident in our society, as experienced by my friend’s sister. This is what her potential dorm roommate, whom she had never met or talked to before, tweeted about her.
"Today I googled my last name and found this as one of the search results. Apparently, just by looking at my profile picture, I am Indian and I can barely speak english. This, my friends, is a prime example of racial profiling. I am an American citizen. I was born in Houston, Texas. My roots are not from India but from Africa. My parents are Algerian. I am Algerian American. English is my primary language and it is a struggle for me to speak my parent’s native tongue. My name is pronounced exactly as it is spelled. I wear a hijab (a head covering), and not a niqab ( a facial covering that excludes the eyes) though I do admire, respect, and find the beauty in all those who do choose to wear the niqab. But this girl is right, I probably would have had a heart attack living with a person who could not, and refused to, respect me and my beliefs. I can only thank God for an opening of a single room shortly after they assigned this roommate, way before I knew she had posted any of this. Alhamdullilah. I also thank God for being born in Houston, one of the most multicultural cities in the United States, and not experiencing racism like this everyday of my life.
Sunday is my move in day and the start of my college career. This can be nothing but a good sign for the years to come, inshaAllah.
In conclusion, I urge everyone, please, don’t judge a person by their appearances. Racism exists in this nation because we continue to do so. We have to look beyond the covers of appearances and read the texts of their characters. Stand with me and #stopracism.”
She should be banned from life
this is so fucked up
As a retail worker we’re always working hard to make the customer’s experience better, but what can YOU, the customer, do to help make your own experience better as well?
1.) Be polite when requesting attention.
*I’ve had customers tap me with their carts, clear their throats, and even grab my sleeve to get my attention. **N*O*P*E** There is NO reason to touch me! REFRAIN FROM UNNECESSARY PHYSICAL CONTACT. It’s rude and can startle people. Clearing your throat, tapping your foot or standing behind me quietly until I turn around is also extremely rude. Treat us with some respect, just like you would your friends or family.*
2.) Exercise patience:
*Things are not always available right away. This is just life. Sometimes your size or your fave brand of guacamole is not on the shelf yet. Give us time to go retrieve the object. We’re TRYING to help you! We’re being taken away from important tasks to go retrieve one item out of hundreds, sometimes THOUSANDS, just for you! So please be patient.*
3.) Do not leave when we go to get something for you!
*If the item will take a while to find, we’ll tell you to browse while we go get it. If we say it’ll be just a minute, don’t walk away and wander the store. We’re wasting precious time tracking you down! I’ve wasted 10-15 minutes chasing customers down who just walked away even though it took me 10 seconds to go grab the thing they wanted. That’s a big deal, because that’s basically a whole break you are erasing from my 8 hour shift. *
4.) That said, we’re not doing nothing all day:
*Most retail workers have a set amount of tasks for the day. My schedule at work is JAM-PACKED. Customer assistance and service is NOT my only job! I don’t sit around and wait for customers to ask me something. Usually, when someone needs something, I am breaking away from 4 hours of work (which I have to complete in 3 hours) to assist you. Again, exercise patience and realize we’re not just hanging out all day. We’re working.*
5.) Realize what ‘good customer service’ means.
*Customer service does NOT mean we are required to sit there and take abuse. If you insult, harass, or slander us, we are not required to accept that. The customer is NOT ALWAYS RIGHT. We are here to provide you with guidance and product knowledge, not to be hit on, harassed, or inappropriately touched. Check yourself before you wreck yourself!!*
6.)Realize Retail Workers have bad days too.
We’re working for less than a living wage and receiving abuse from customers daily. Just like you have rough days, so do we! That brings me to…
7.) We’re HUMAN! Not work machines!
All you need to do is to be empathetic and understanding. Had a bad experience? Shrug it off. We do it DAILY. Getting one bad experience at a store you shop at 3 times a week is NOT a big deal. We’re dealing with bad experiences all the time just catering to you. And we get paid like literal shit to do it. So get over your shit.
EDIT (8.) WE GET PENALIZED FOR CUSTOMER ERRORS.
In a world where ‘the customer is always right’ sometimes retail employees actually suffer from mistakes YOU make! For example. Remember when I told you that sometimes your requests can erase an entire 15 minute break from my shift? We get yelled at for not taking that break. We have literally been given shit for not taking a break we were UNABLE to take because a customer had run off and made us chase them down. Not fair, you say? Welcome to retail. This point is not to shame customers but to make you THINK about how your actions affect retail workers.
