melbourne - A group of black teens is excluded from an Apple Store in the Australian city of Melbourne, because the staff feared they " would steal something." The six students were given a staff and two security guards told them the shop were not allowed.
" These people (the guards) are just a little concerned about your presence in the store. They are afraid that you steal something ", said the staff member. This is evident from video recordings that are posted on Facebook. The recordings make social media a storm of criticism. Many people find that the Apple Store has been guilty of racism. One of the students, Mabior Ater, told Guardian Australia that the head of his school with the boys went back to the shop to ask for excuses. " The manager apologized and said that we are always welcome. That feels like satisfaction. " Apple declined to comment on the incident.
