Rampant Racial Profiling At SOHO Location

  • No, I would not go back!

A resident of Nolita, I made a purchase at Dean & Deluca this afternoon shortly before 3PM. I was surveilled while making product decisions by men on little black walkie talkies, one man even ducking behind produce to avoid being obvious. I only purchased a handful of items, but was made to feel uncomfortable being that I was the ONLY person being tracked and monitored as I looked around the store. It was clearly racially motivated, being that I am a minority, while all of the other shoppers enjoyed the freedom of being treated like normal human beings as they shopped. Bravo Dean & Deluca! Bravo to you and your preemptive efforts to catch the Black shoppers red handed. Truly appalling.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
