Leona Lewis is busting the myth that racist incidents aren’t as common in the UK as they are in America. In case you missed it, over the weekend the singer recalled a painful story of being racially profiled in a store in London.
The singer said it happened just after she bought a new place. She and her dad were out shopping for stuff for her apartment at a “cute little shop” when she was singled out for not being white. She said she noticed the female storeowner “hovering around” them and then it just got worse, with the store owner demanding she not touch anything in the store, even though everyone else in the store was touching things.
Leona says she herself “became confrontational,” noting, “because obviously it sparked this rage in me as to why we're being singled out and targeted.” The other people who were in the store simply left or did nothing and at one point the owner threatened to call the police.
Leona eventually left, was crying in her car, while her father came back and grabbed her CD. The storeowner soon came out to apologize, noting she didn’t realize who she was. Leona called her out as a racist and said the woman was “in denial.”
- As for the other people in the store, Leona notes, “For the people that are not speaking out or saying anything, you're the people that left. You just left," adding, "You need to say something. You need to stand with us and acknowledge that it's happening."
