Im a 22 year old African American male who lives in California. Whenever I enter a store, gas station, or even a movie theater. I feel an unwanted vibe as if I’m on the radar by all the managers and floor workers. A negative vibe as if I’m being looked at like about to steal an item. So i wrote my 6 words “why steal when you’re already looking” describing that vibe i always feel when i walk into a store.
