I am an African American woman who has experienced racism at the CeCe’s location on Decatur Street several times throughout the years!
This morning…I walked in the coffee shop and two women, one a cashier one a manager preceded in their normal conversation, totally ignoring my entry and my words when I placed my order at the counter. A white couple walked in and they IMMEDIATELY greeted them saying, “Welcome to CeCe’s. May I take your order?”
When I asked which one was the manager, one lady making the drinks said, “Me.” And, I said, “I just found it interesting that when I walked in you both totally ignored me, but when this white couple walked in…you greeted them immediately and took their order.” The manager said, “I’m sorry you FELT that way, but…” I cut her off and said, “It’s not what I felt, but what I noticed.”
