An African-American man (actor) is shopping at an upscale clothing store near Wall Street in New York City. He’s wearing a hooded sweater, which makes the salesperson (Caucasian, also an actor), a little uneasy. The salesperson immediately tells him they don’t have any “urban wear” in this store.
Things steadily escalate as the salesperson insinuates that this customer can’t afford the clothes he’s looking at and that the store has a lot of cameras. The man has done nothing wrong, but continues to be watched, and scrutinized, simply because of the color of his skin and his attire. Eventually, the salesperson calls the security guard (also an actor) to pat him down before he leaves the store. Will anyone standing by defend the shopper from being racially profiled?
