'OUTRAGEOUSí Fury as photos show African-American hair products LOCKED UP on supermarket shelves but those for white customers arenít
The Sun ^ | June 10 2020 | Henry Holloway

The images of hair care products at Walmart are said to show items targeted at African American shoppers locked up behind a glass cabinet, while those more commonly advertised as being for white people's hair are left untouched.

He wrote: "It's more than just the police."

The pictures have sparked fury as many claim it is an example of bias against black people in their day-to-day lives.

...

One user said: "Damn. All the times I've walked past this at Walmart and never even put two and two together. Holy hell this makes me sad I've never recognized all the little things."

Another added: "The products that are locked and chained up are the ones that are specifically targeted at natural black hair; implication being that the store owners expect black people to steal hair products."

Others shared images including concealer being attached with electronic tags, and a shelf of hair dye where the only one in a theft-prevention case was the one with a black model on the front of the box.

Those who want police departments to be defunded are hoping to avoid being busted for drugs. That's why so many white young people have joined in on the protesting and rioting. They live with their paranoia about being busted for drug possession and drug pushing.

That's also why they want social workers and others to take the place of police. Such government employees are, on average, more friendly with drug abuse or using drugs themselves. Same goes for psychology, English, nursing and other students who receive the bulk of SJW education.

Walmart undoubtedly knows what products are and are not being stolen. Can’t blame them for taking steps to secure those that are.

We all know what the result of this has to be. All the white hair care products, which are probably among the least lifted items at Walmart will have to be locked up.

Even fewer whites will shop in the physical Walmart stores—and the downward spiral will continue.

Pretty much sums it up.

Yep. They, and other stores, have loss prevention officers who have only one job: reduce the amount of theft in the stores. High-risk items go under lock and key. And if there's continual complaining about that situation, the stores will pull the product entirely. If complaining continues, stores will be shuddered. Seen that progression happen a couple of times.

I swear, these morons just don't see consequences to actions!

Obviously the problem is that racist white people don’t shoplift enough.

Only a real moron doesn’t know the products are locked up because they are stolen and given they are products specific to Blacks that is who is stealing them.

Exactly.

I’m guessing the black hair care products are stolen on a regular and routine basis.

As tempted as I’ve often been I’ve never stolen a bottle of Selsen Blue or Grecian Formula 16.

Everything is computerized. They know the items that are shoplifted the most.

It’s called “shrinkage”, like that old Seinfeld episode.
