    "Patty" :rolleyes


    Background, ICYMI, John Henson's original IG of the incident
    [​IMG]

    The owner has since apologized to him in person. Henson accepted and deleted the IG post

    The company since got destroyed on Yelp. There was already a very low rating, some of the same things (uppity, racist sales personnel, poor service, etc. experienced by regulars but once the internet caught on it was over and Yelp is still actively sorting out real entries from ones related to the Henson incident.

    That BS. I hope this leads to their business failing and having to close.

    Knowing America, a bunch of GOP type folks will rally to support.

    She even refused to come out front with the Police there after they had identified and cleared him then had them stay while he shopped. You could even hear in the dispatcher's tone she had become annoyed with Patty and her intense racism/paranoia.

    I mean people usually get destroyed on social media. If I wanted to, I guarantee I could probably find a facebook or linkedin or something for her. Her name is Patty Dixon, owner is Tom Dixon so maybe his daughter or something. There was a small mini protest in front of the store, literally like 3 dudes , posterboard, and a foldable car table

    You'd be surprised how much this happens, not just at businesses either, I've seen white people call the police on people moving IN to a house and the only reason they can give is they looked "suspicious" aka black

    This watch must have been something else to still spend $ there.

    Pretty terrible for sure. My thoughts to why he would have still spent his money there is to prove to them that he could and to let them know their stereotyping was ********. But he should have walked and not spent a dime

    Nope, but I am surprised he still chose to spend money in there. I would've walked away without spending a dime

    No way in hell I would've spent a dime in that place. Dude is stupid.
    Bish was just so sure that he was a criminal. :smh:

    Edit: According to ABC, he didn't buy the watch there.

    After generations of this, you would think people would understand this.

    This is why I don't waste time complaining and shouting #blacklivesmatter and all of that stupid ****. I understand it is what it is and I'm not expecting that one day things will just suddenly become better.

    When you've been in the water long enough, at some point you have to understand that the sharks are going to keep trying to eat you...because that's what sharks do.
