K BEAUTY SUPPLY Discrimination, Disrespectful Richmond Virginia
On January 27th 2013, I went to K-Beauty to buy some weaving hair, I went to the back to the discounted section, and went to other isles for hair that wasn't on sale...I was trying to decide if I wanted to discounted hair or the regular priced hair, or the higher priced hair, depending on the look I wanted with the hair...Everything I touched, I carefully placed back into it's proper place...As with other beauty stores, there are so many different hair types, lace wigs, and regular wigs, that sometimes it takes a while to decide. I stayed in that store for about and hour and a half...Just looking and trying to decide what I wanted...and I everytime I saw what I wanted it ended up that the color was sold out or they just didn't have the color...which is blonde mixed..for me...I asked to go into the section roped off to take a closer look, I could plainly see some affordable wigs priced at 25.00 dollars but I wanted a closer look. I was told by the rude store manager, who is an older asian man, that I could not go in that part because he knew that I wasn't going to buy anything, I had been in this store a month prior and purchased from that section. I was immediately offended by his remark, so I just purchased the hair that I had in my hands...When I got up to the register and made the purchase, the older asian man who completed my purchase threw his hands in the air, and said, that he did not want me in his store anymore, he said he didn't care about my money, he just didn't want me in his store, I replied, You can't do that, I am not a thief and I do not steal, and I haven't done anything, he and an asian woman, told me that I took too long to make a purchase in the store...And I said, you can't time me on making a purchase, and I informed the both that I would make a report of this..he continued to throw both of his hands in the air, and said he didn't care, just don't come into his store anymore...I felt so discrespected, and left wondering, if he would have treated me like that, if I was a white female...who by the way the cater too...I decided to make a report of this, because in August 2013, I was shopping and the FOOD LION next store, and decided to visit K-Beauty...at that time I went into the store, looked around, and was told to leave the store if I wasn't going to buy anything...I was put out of the store for window-shopping...I am tired of this treatment, I have witnessed them doing this to other black females, and I feel that my rights have been trampled on, and that I have been disregarded as customer/upstanding citizen of the United States....Something needs to be done about this...they have to know that they can not treat customers like that.
