CVS - Discrimination
ACWORTH, GEORGIA -- CVS is now the only store I have ever been in to discriminate against me based solely on my age. As a well-educated 17 year old male, I'm not used to unfair treatment, but when my brother, his friend, and I walked into the store the manager instantly began watching us. This was strange, but didn't really bother me because I understand the need to prevent theft, and that it is often teenagers who are responsible for such acts of petty larceny. I could even put up with it when one of the employees was sent to talk to us and make sure we weren't causing trouble. What angered and disappointed me was when, two or three minutes later, the same employee was sent back to "recommend" that we leave.
The fact that they did this based not on any of our actions but on our age group is as reprehensible as if they had kicked out someone for being black. The same logic would be behind both situations, and the same response is in accord.
