Sephora to shut US stores for diversity training after SZA racial profiling

The Sephora beauty chain will close all its US stores, distribution centers and corporate offices on Wednesday to conduct diversity training for employees. This comes in the wake of a racial incident involving Grammy-nominated singer SZA. SZA, who is black, said in April she was racially profiled at a Sephora store in California.

This is just damage control to placate fools. Nobody at that corporate office actually thinks their employees is it anything wrong.

From CNBC: "We have been informed of an incident at our Calabasas store and in addition to reaching out to SZA directly, we are gathering more information about the incident in order to take the proper next steps,” Emily Shapiro, a spokeswoman for Sephora, told Reuters in an email. With the amount of recent fake hate crimes and racial hoaxes, can an investigation of the incident be completed before we automatically attribute racist intent to someone? This already being called racial profiling before having all of the information about the incident.

If I was a black shoplifter, that's the shop I'd be going to. After the indoctrination those poor buggers are about to receive you'd have to be carrying half the shop with you before you'd be approached ever again.
