Dear Walter, I am greatful to have someone to send these things to, who finds it all as
disturbing as I do. Hopefully there will soon be some respite, but I
honestly doubt it. This is my Facebook post from yesterday. For the first time in my life, I
was refused service in a local store, because I am NOT MUSLIM. I was told
the items that I wanted were not for sale, that "this is for us" and
that I wouldn't like them. I went back to speak to the owner, who looked
stunned by my boldness, but was clearly already informed by the time he came
out. He then proceeded to lie about the items not being fresh enough for me. I
explained that would have been fine, if that was explained, but that is
untrue, and NOT what happened. I posted it on Facebook, and got an assortment of reactions.
This is now the second business on that block, which is refusing to service to
non-Muslims. The other store uses the same line, "this isn't for
sale." I posted it to Facebook to begin logging the deterioration of my
community. I am forwarding you the screen shot, because sometimes these
things on Facebook simply disappear. Please tell me if you begin to
observe a similar trend in your community.
