What You Asked For

The national discussion continues on race. Following President Obama's comments on being followed while shopping because he is black, I've listened to many others call in to the radio shows I listen to and echo that experience, and many others, generally with strong feelings attached.

One added a little irony to his comment. While a store clerk was following him around, watching him like a hawk to see what he was going to steal, he in turn was watching a pair of white teens shoplift whatever they could get their hands on. Needless to say, they weren't caught.

I'd say the store personnel got exactly what they were asking for.
