This kid’s vines of white people following him around in convenience stores are tragically hilarious

This is so funny, you forget how tragic it actually is.

This is so funny, you forget how unfortunately sad it actually is.

From BuzzFeed:

Vine user Rashid Polo has a series of pretty wild Vines of convenience store workers following him around while he shops.

As he puts it, “Don’t you hate when you inside a store and the cashier starts following you like, I’m not going to steal all of it, just some of it.”

Whether they’re following him because they’re afraid he’s going to steal something might be up for debate, but the woman’s jump at the end of this one is pretty amazing…

    Um I don’t deny racism exists and this might be an example of it…just so you know I’m a white lady and I’VE been followed around in stores by suspicious bored cashiers…I’d be more compelled if you had a hidden camera. Walking around with your arm extended talking to yourself is bound to get you followed!

    Kid makes a JOKE about “only stealing some of it” and you post up saying he’s an admitted thief.

    I really hope you never breed.

    The woman in the last one certainly looked white to me. And the 1st one showed the woman was definitively following and watching him.

    The kid was joking about being a thief and calling her out about thinking he was because of his skin color. The only idiots are those like you who think there’s no racism.

    Stupid loudmouth kid with a camera. Any store owner would be concerned. Get a clue people; everything isn;t about race.

    I went to Sears once with my black ladyfreind Diane. I’m white. I picked up the ice tea maker that my grandparents had hinted at for a Christmas present and got in line while Diane looked at the wares on the shelfs. One cashier, half a dozen customers in line, and the cashier is busy watching the one black person in the department (we were in our 30’s so it wasn’t like she was some kid wandering around). After a few minutes the cashier turns from her customers and asks Diane “Can I help you with something ma’am?” WTF? Diane was black as coal and had the attitude and gumption of a hamster. The only suspicious thing about her was her skin color.
    So yeah, it happens.

    it looks to me like he is deliberately placing himself in front of a working person, then pulling out his this camera and filming claiming they are following him.when if fact it looks like he is following them… he looks like a big mouth kid looking for his 15 minutes of fame by jumping on the race wagon.

    There is a BIG problem with this video. There is no true evidence of racism here. Let me clarify;

    Racism as a whole means “the belief that one’s own race is superior”

    Prejudice is any preconceived opinion, feeling, or attitude (good or bad) regarding an ethnic, racial, social, or religious group.

    Here’s where it get’s a bit blurry. Someone can be prejudiced and racist, or simply prejudiced. In this case here, it is clearly obvious that these people are prejudiced. Sadly we do not know to what extent their prejudice holds (whether they’ve formed an opinion based on his race, age, or simply based on this guy walk around the store scouting with a camera and looking suspicious).

    Unless they blatantly state a racial comment (using the “N” word) or acting noticeably bias towards him (serving non-African American customers better), the assumption of racism is a bit extreme. We honestly do not have enough evidence to support that these employees view their race as superior in some fashion or treat all African Americans differently. He would have made a better case if he could have shown other Caucasian customers around his own age not being treated in the same fashion. And that my friends is how you prove racism. But, I do give him credit for showing prejudice.

    Seem a little strange how he always starts with a shot of them doing their job and not even looking at him. I do believe there is racism out there but for a kid, like in these videos, to try to manufacture something that isn’t there is wrong.
    Just go in an buy what you need and leave. If you feel your being treated bad at a store call the regional manager and report it.
    These videos don’t solve problems they create problems that aren’t really there.

    Is it possible… Maybe just possible… that these people were going on about their normal work routine? I mean, you do have to stock shelves & attend to things in the store when there are no customers at the register. Is it also possible that these people didn’t give a flying fart about him going up and down the aisles talking and recording himself?

    If that was sarcasm and I missed it, I’m sorry. Sometimes sarcasm comes across too real online.
