Racism at Albertsons? You be the judge.

Image result for albertsons irvine images grocery stores logo  Tonight my racism chase takes me to the West Coast.

Now I must admit that the following story is not such a clear cut case of racism as others that I have highlighted on this blog in the past. And the truth is, quite a few people (especially white ones)  have lashed out at the victim in the case and told her to get over herself.

Here is the story:

"An African-American woman filed a civil rights lawsuit Monday, April 10, against Albertsons and its parent company, Safeway, alleging that its managers took no steps to correct or apologize for the actions of a checkout clerk at an Irvine store who incorrectly assumed the woman was on food stamps.

Jenna Watkinson, a spokeswoman for Safeway, said company officials have not seen the lawsuit and “do not comment on pending litigation.”

'However, any time we interact with a customer, our goal is to ensure that they are treated with the utmost respect and courtesy,' she said Wednesday.

Deirdre Harris, 42, who filed the lawsuit, said the incident occurred Jan. 27 at the Albertsons at Alton Avenue and Culver Street. Harris said she was trying to pull out a debit card from her phone case to pay for the items, when the checkout clerk asked her if she wanted to use her EBT card.

'What exactly did you say?' Harris asked the clerk.

The clerk repeated her question and asked if she wanted to use food stamps.

'I felt completely demoralized,' said Harris, an Orange County native who grew up in Huntington Beach, works as a fashion brand consultant, and has lived in Irvine for 22 years. 'For me, it was a very clear reminder — a painful reminder — that we do not live in a post-racial era.'

Harris said she spoke with three supervisors including Ron Foss, a regional manager at Safeway. She said he explained to Harris, like others supervisors had before, that the clerk had done nothing wrong and was simply trying to give her free bags, because those using food stamps don’t have to pay for reusable plastic bags.

Foss, who was mentioned in the lawsuit, eventually offered her $500 as compensation for her emotional distress, she said, and added: “If I were you, I’d take it.”

A follow-up letter sent by a Safeway claims examiner to Harris on March 24, the same day she talked to Foss, states: “Please be advised that we’ve completed our investigation and determined there’s no liability on the store. I acknowledge your allegation of emotional distress and would be willing to offer a customer service gesture of $500. …Failing to accept the customer service gesture will be construed as a rejection and will result in a formal denial of this claim as there has been no evidence of discrimination or racial profiling.”

It wasn’t the first time Harris had experienced the subtle undercurrents of racism in a city that is less than 1 percent African-American, she said. But, she added, her conversation with Foss was the “tipping point.” [Source]

Yep, clearly a case of a clerk who let her racial bias get the better of her.

And trust me, I know that I am the racism chaser, but I don't consider everything to be racist. There is nothing, for instance, racist about drinking milk. And to suggest otherwise (as someone has attempted to do) would be just asinine.

I am thinking to myself that if this incident had happened in Inglewood or Oakland, California it would not be such a clear cut case of racism, but Irvine is a different story. This might have been the only black person this clerk saw all day, and to assume that she was using food stamps because she is black was...well...racist.

Thoughts?

Let's see where it goes. People have sued for less such as the President suing Bill Maher over a joke��

~~Silk said...

The clerk asked because a) the customer was trying to get a card out and b) the clerk needed to know whether to charge for the bags or not. So I assume that the clerk is in the habit of asking anyone getting a card out with whom she is not already familiar. The habit would not have formed unless she often has food stamp customers, and in that demographic most of those would be white. So I figure we can't judge anything here without how many white folks she is likely to ask in an average day.

"without KNOWING how many". Proofread, Silk!

Meanwhile, children are being slaughtered in Syria. Ok, so I am white, but I have to say that if the woman said something about trying to find her debit card, it could sound like EBT card, especially if you only heard the "bt" part of the word. However, if that wasn't the case, then I would just like to mention that my black friends would have turned ultra sassy and straightened out the clerk for assuming all blacks are on food stamps. After, annihilating the clerk, they would have left with all the groceries sitting there unpaid. Then they would have gotten on with their lives. Did I mention children are being slaughtered in Syria? Welcome to the Litigious States of America.

White people have OBSERVED that Blacks are stupid and lazy.  This has been known since many decades before I was born and was implicit in popular culture.

Blacks in general cannot deal with reality.  The delusional must be removed to Afreaka where they cannot impose their dysfunctions upon Whites.  For those of you who are keeping score, that means at least 95% of you, probably closer to 99%.

LOL. Food Stamps.

I'm glad they are history. I got really tired of waiting in the store lines waiting on blacks to use them.

I'm sure the EBT Cards have helped speed-up the check-out process.

PLUS...it helps to keep the lines of blacks to a minimum at the "food stamp/welfare" offices.

I used to know when "payday" was coming, when all the Cadillac's were in the welfare office parking lot.

dinthebeast said...

There used to be an Albertsons on MacArthur Boulevard that was the closest walking distance to my house on Humboldt Ave. so I bought all of my groceries there for about five years. Never had any trouble there, and they didn't make me check my Timbuk2 bag while I shopped like they did at Safeway. They seemed to have a pretty diverse crew that seemed to match the neighborhood well.
I didn't know they were owned by Safeway, maybe that's a recent development.
If there weren't so many assholes trying to make people who use EBT cards seem bad, problems of this nature would at least be fewer.

Brigade Fifteen said...

My thoughts are that it might well have been a racist comment.

However, speaking pragmatically, I wonder:

1) How do you prove it, since there is always the possibility that there was no racist intent behind it and this was just a misunderstanding?

2) Even if there was racist intent behind it, will she win any meaningful money in a lawsuit over such a small slight? This is not like one of those cases where a business refused to serve a customer or deliberately offered a lower quality of service to a customer based on race. I guess I'm just skeptical that a jury will award significant damages for a store clerk offering to accept her EBT card -- which could have been a helpful gesture, not an insult, if the clerk had correctly guessed the customer's economic status.

Brigade Fifteen said...

"It's gonna be fun, PC...when you ignore/deny the wall is being built."

It's gonna be fun when you realize that Republicans in Congress will refuse to provide the money to build the wall -- or build only a couple miles of it and then quit and announce "Mission Accomplished!" -- because their extremely wealthy campaign donors would prefer a fat tax cut to your constructing your precious wall.

Perhaps that will be the moment it sinks in that the Republican Party exists to serve a small, select group of people, which does not include you.

It sure seems like the clerk made a gross assumption. It's OK to be offended (I would have been, too), don't let it show. Join in her game. Once the customer understood what the clerk was asking -- if she was looking for her food stamp card -- the customer could have said pleasantly and with a smile, "Oh, I don't have one of those. Would you show me yours?" I get things like that from "service" people all the time, except they treat me like a label/relation. Yesterday, when my husband had a medical appointment, the nurse referred to me as "the misses" (meaning Mrs.) I told her that wasn't my name. I've been called/referred to as "grandma". The first time, I said, "I'm not your grandma," but more recently call the person "little boy" or "little girl".

Sounds like Albertson's got to adjudicate the case in in-store arbitration without the plaintiff's input. Take the money because we decided nothing untoward happened here.

It wasn't only the clerk who suspected the POC might be on foodstamps.I pronounce Albertsons guilty as hell and condemn them to die.

To understand if his assumption was racist, you'd have to find out how many food stamp users shop in this predominantly white and (probably?)well-to-do neighborhood. Maybe close to zero, or maybe more than you might might imagine. Maybe food stamp users at his store are actually very numerous and he hopes to make them more comfortable by not acting all hush-hush about a situation he doesn't think people should be ashamed of. Maybe he knows people on food stamps, or maybe he's even on food stamps himself. (How much does a clerk earn at a grocery store? Enough to support a family?)

Isn't Irvine a large university town, full of graduate students and entry-level tech workers and internship workers with giant loans to pay back? Might it be that a lot of them need food stamps to get by?
Perhaps in a white college town, using food stamps does not carry the social stigma that it does elsewhere. Maybe it's almost a badge of honor. ("Look how much I am sacrificing to get my education. I also shop in thrift stores and drive a beat-up car.") And thus the clerk's mistake might have been his not having the presence of mind to remember that an African-American person might be offended by this casual attitude, because they might feel singled out for their color. (And if he actually does usually have a casual attitude about mentioning food stamps with customers, and if they don't seem to mind, would he be racist or culturally sensitive to assume that an African-American woman in his store might appreciate more discretion?)

I am not really familiar with Irvine or the neighborhood, I don't know the numbers, and I'm writing without having seen any other news about this. I don't know if the clerk was a poor sap just trying to be nice, or a racist jerk. But I hope the woman read the situation wrong.

Can't be a true story, there was no mention of her buying steaks and lobsters and energy drinks with the EBT card she doesn't have. There was o mention of her on her Obamaphone or driving off in her new SUV courtesy of Obama.

It was YOU who grouped us all together and put us under attack, as (((their))) shock troops.  In no small part, the existence of "White people" is YOUR doing.


"Drumpf blamed Obama for allowing the MS-13 gang into America."

Zero let EVERYONE into America, and practically refused to throw them out almost no matter how badly they behaved.  Then he re-classified voluntary departures of border-jumpers as "deportations" to cover up his massive nonfeasance.

Lilacpr said...

What amount of finesse,of diplomacy,of intelligence,of possibly seeing beyond an obviously deeply rooted prejudicial stereotype of people not of their color, of grace,of manners, can one expect of a SUPERMARKET CASHIER for heavens sake??? Not much, otherwise she/he wouldn't be a SUPERMARKET CASHIER right? Lol!

BUT...and of course everything depends on the customers feelings, which have obviously taken a blow at that moment, and in front of other customers on the checkout line, and in her attitude at the moment. Because sometimes we/all of us, feel jovial and jolly, and sometimes we wake up on the wrong side of the bed, right?

Let's suppose we feel jovial and jolly, Well me personally I would have laughed and said in a loud voice of course for the benefit of the line ;) " Oh honey, I only wish I had one of those! Lemme tell you in these times every little bit helps! But I make too much money, don't qualify" (insert big smile here x) But I'm sure you qualify though right?, these jobs can't pay much!" (insert another big smile xD! Then I would complain/sue!

Now let's say we woke up on the wrong side of the bed that day, I would give her a big blank stare,followed by a puzzled look, and coldly say to her "er no dear, (and I would think (how could anybody possibly be so stupid, you little piece of shit,but I wouldn't say it, but she would read it in my eyes) My profession pays too much for me to qualify for food stamps, but I'll tell you, if I could get them I sure would, in these times" and then I'd go look for the manager and/or supervisor.

Guarantee she'll never forget me. and the wonderful thing is, (I'm too wonderful, I am :) I would be educating her! Because you always have to educate xD
She'll never do that again for sure!

isherwood said...

White guy here, so for what my opinion is worth...

Another explanation is that the clerk mistook the customer, at a glance, for someone else she sees on occasion who uses food assistance. I'm a software programmer, and as such am trained and conditioned to look for ambiguity in logical constructs. Yours shows some.

I don't deny that racism is rampant in 2017 USA, and I'm an advocate for equality issues in my community (which includes one of the largest Somali refugee populations in the country), but I can't support your claim of clarity here.

Respectful feedback welcome.

Meh I don't know field, did the clerk make an assumption based on her race probably, is it lawsuit worthy not really. If I sued everytime someone made an assumption about me that was incorrect I would be in court all the time. As my Grandfather used to say their are 5 cent problems and their are 5 dollar problems. This lady has a 5 cent problem, she should just take her business elsewhere and not shop their anymore if she was that offended.

Obama deported more illegal immigrants than any other Potus, baldy.

I think, as a nation, we have ignored the racial problems of the last 50 years long enough. Whitey wingnuts doesn't like counter measures taken against their white privileged racist games. Example- how they did howl when pissed off Blacks started shooting boys in blue in retaliation for all the brothers gunned down from behind, in front or any angle their bodies happened to get spun in a hail of bullets.

RaiYah Bat Yisrael said maybe he thought you were brothers in arms because so many WalMart employees are also on food stamps. WalMart and Micky D's have officials who advise new hires to take advantage of government welfare (food stamps and Medicaid) to make up for low wages.

So I looked up this Deepa Bharath who covers religion for the Orange County Register and wrote this article. She is an interesting journalist, working in the midst of libertarians and republicans. She manages to expand her range slightly into civil rights, women's rights, refugees and some political protesting. She would be an interesting person to ask whether or not this woman was discriminated against.

Tweet her Field? @deepareporter

The fact that she reported on it gives this case some cred. Orange County is deeply hostile territory sandwiched right between beautiful San Diego and the Megalopolis L.A. It's about the only place in California where someone can proudly and publicly proclaim their love of Trump. The political cartoons in the Register seemed to be dominated by libertarians who felt betrayed by Trump for breaking his promises, i.e. build the wall, repeal and replace, travel ban. I'm guessing Trump is just another bleeding heart liberal to these hardcore libertarians. Of course, you can't pigeonhole an entire population. They have progressive views on same-sex marriage, marijuana legalization among other things. The OC Register was the first paper to oppose the Iraq War.

OC appears to be fairly wealthy on the quick drive-through, but it does have a service economy. According to kidsdata, 26% of white households and 52% of Hispanic households in OC use EBT, but only 3% of black households in 2015.

This is an interesting widget. In this link I have Orange County selected.

Anonymous said...

Not that I have a lot of love for the OC (notable dirtbag Darrell Issa represents a portion of it) but let's give the clerk the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps this Clerk thought he or she saw what they thought was an EBT card. A quick apology ("Sorry! I thought I saw an EBT card, not a Bank of Whatever card") may have ended the matter, but Clerks are generally teens or early college students, and the none of us are thoughtful at that time in our lives. Was this a teaching moment for the Store Manager to inform said Clerk that his or her incautious wording is prejudicial and a prompt apology is in order? Yes. Is this worthy of a lawsuit? I don't know that that course of action is going to better this individual clerk who made a terrible mistake.

Why would this clerk, or any other, for that matter be looking in a customer's purse? I doubt they are trained to do that. They aren't drug sniffing dogs. Are they narcs perchance?

"The Facebook murder suspect killed himself."

So what would you rather than he had done?  Turn himself in and be one more of "too many Black men in jail"?  Keep police going for as long as he could and commit "suicide by cop"?

"R U happy, NOW???"

There's one less stupid deadly Black man out there.  I would have been happier if Planned Parenthood had made it so that he was never born in the first place, so that all the fear and suffering just didn't happen.

I wish I was one less stupid deadly white men out here. I would have been happier if Planned Parenthood had made it so that I was never born in the first place, so that all the fear and suffering I've inflicted just didn't happen.

Yeah. I've served. I've been paying tax money so you and your monkeys have housing, food, and God only knows what else for 40 years.

Fuck the gooks and chinks!

Lt. Commander Pussy said...

Oh, now "serving" is paying taxes for monkeys? I knew this guy was a pussybitch. What a coward. Typical.

I guess "serving" for Lt. Comm Pussy is the same as James "finishing" a book. Probably finally didn't color outside of the lines. These racist assholes have such low standards. Wanna bet Lt. Comm Pussy wears medals and a beret for "serving"?
bwahahahahahahahahahahahHahahaha!

Lt. Commander Pussy is on welfare said...

Hmmmmmm, Lt. Commander Pussy says he never served but uses a military title. My guess is he's also lying about paying taxes. His bitch ass is on the fare. Oh that's right "disability" in white conservative language.
bwahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
