Kristina T. Sanders,
A regular day at work turned into an eye opening experience. I had helped a customer pick out a pair of shoes, and it was time for him to purchase them. The customer was a tall middle age Caucasian gentlemen. I gave him his total and he pulled out the money. I held my hand out to receive the money and he look and me and simply placed the money on the counter. I was shocked and surprised that this had occurred. He wanted to make sure his hands didn’t touch mine. I said to myself, “Wow, racism does still exist.” I was compelled to write about this event because it surprised me how much racism still exist in the 21st century.
