This exchange was between two associates–one white and one black (yes, it is relevant)–at a well-known men’s clothing store:
Associate #1: This gentleman is looking for something to compliment his Willy Wonka costume for Halloween.
Associate #2: I don’t really know what Willy Wonka wore.
Associate #1: Well, it was a movie for white people; I don’t remember any black people being in it.”
Hello? Did I really just have this conversation happen in front of me?
