This is a story from a Facebook user referring to an experience she had at a high end store with a rear end of a customer, take a look.
I was in a high-end store yesterday, and picked up several ramekins and other home wares that were on a serious sale. Like 90% off sale. This story isn't really about ramekins, but I will get to why the ramekins are of GREAT pertinence later. As I was in line, the lady behind me complimented my hair, and attempted to strike up a conversation about the "rioting" happening in uptown. I thanked her for the compliment, but hesitated any further banter with her because I DID NOT want an isolated incident to support any perpetuated beliefs about people that look like me. I let her slide with a "It looks so soft and shiny, not coarse at all..." comment -__- I kindly stated that was a misconception most people have about "black hair" and continued to "fake examine" my items. She went on... "Oh I just love "black hair!" I would love to have some. I would be so happy if my hair would do that." Again, I swallowed the lump in my throat, smiled at her, and said "Well, you can always get extensions! Then you too can have "black hair." I turned around swiftly, and my eyes could SERIOUSLY not roll any further in the back of my head. Why me, Lord? Why? I prayed that was the end of her attempts to engage. And it was...until she inquired about some of the items I was purchasing. "Are those ramekins? How great are those colors! I didn't see those back there." She went on, and asked me how much they were. This time, I fully engaged with her. Sure!
