White Americans take note!
If you shop at a place called Civvies on Broughton Street in Savannah, Georgia, you will be discriminated against.
The clothing store has taken immense heat for charging white customers a $20 deposit to shop, but waiving the fee for “persons of color.”
There’s a word for a policy like this, isn’t there?
Oh yeah, racism!
Fox News has the full details on the store’s racist policy:
A clothing store in Georgia has been accused of being “racist” after it shared a new policy on its Facebook page that waived a fee for non-White customers.
Civvies on Broughton Street in Savannah posted that it would require a refundable $20 deposit when booking an appointment to visit the boutique. However, the since-deleted post also wrote that people of color would be exempt from the fee, the New York Post reported.
“As a mostly White staff with White ownership, we do not feel comfortable upholding a digital and financial barrier which could prevent BIPOC from shopping at our store at this time on top of the limitations already made by online booking,” the store announced last week, the Post shared.
The “new and recycled clothing” store wrote that patrons who “are White and refuse to put down a deposit because you believe our policy is unethical” would not be allowed to make an appointment.
Since putting up the policy, the store received negative reactions and threats of legal action.
“Most of the feedback about our decision to waive this refundable deposit is racist because it favors Black people, Indigenous people and people of color,” store manager Raine Blunk told local outlet WJGL.
After the widespread backlash, the business put up an apology and removed all mention of the previous policy for its social media.
Here’s the store’s alleged apology, which really doesn’t seem like much of an apology, on Facebook
Not only is such a policy racist towards white people, it's a slap in the face to African American, Hispanic, and Asian customers.
The store's policy assumes they can't afford the $20!
And how did they plan to treat bi-racial and multi-racial individuals?
Clearly the policy was devised by ignorant "woke" white individuals looking to virtue-signal.

It's clear that the "woke" culture is becoming more and more hostile to caucasian Americans.
In fact, a large study completed back in 2017 found that even half of white Millenials admit discrimination against white people is as big of a problem as discrimination against people of color.
Here's details on the study from Marketplace:
Most white millennials don’t think minorities are taking their jobs, but nearly half believe that discrimination against whites is a problem, according to a new survey from GenForward.
Racial tensions have arguably heightened this past year following the election of President Trump and a series of white nationalist rallies occurring in the country. To get a better grasp of our current racial and political climate, GenForward surveyed millennials to find out their attitudes about racial and economic power in the U.S.
The project’s lead investigator Cathy Cohen spoke with Marketplace Morning Report about the survey’s findings. Here are some of her takeaways:
The survey asked millennials across racial and ethnic groups whether they think white people are having trouble finding jobs because minorities are taking them. Very few millennials across the board agreed with this position, with 29 percent of white millennials believing this was the case.
The numbers, however, slightly changed when looking at sub-groups of white respondents. The percentage increased to about 33 percent for white millennials without college degrees, according to Cohen. The number increased to 34 percent for respondents who voted for Trump, which is a group largely comprised of white men and women.
“[White millennials] know something is going on that’s bad, or at least they feel like something’s going on that’s bad in their communities and for them. They’re less likely to blame other groups,” Cohen said. “And I think they have a better sense that maybe in fact it’s corporate and neo-liberal policies that are shrinking the jobs that are available to them.”
Cohen noted that they may not articulate this stance that way — that’s what she and her team are inferring from the data.
She also added, “I want to suggest it’s more complicated than saying, ‘Well, they don’t blame folks of color,’ because much of our other data throughout this report suggests in fact that there are real differences around racial issues that we would want to pay attention to and understand those differences.”
However, the numbers changed for white millennials when asked about discrimination more generally. The survey asked respondents whether they agreed that “discrimination against whites has become as big a problem as discrimination against blacks and other minorities.”
Almost half of white millennials agreed at 48 percent, and about 70 percent of millennial Trump voters agreed.
