After purchasing some items in Saks, I (biracial BW female) walk to the elevator to leave where a middle aged white woman is waiting as well. As I stand for the elevators, I watch her look at me as she take her purse from her shoulder and places it cross-bodied across her chest. Wish I said something, like “I’m shopping here TOO you know,” but she was wearing a hearing aid and I wasn’t sure if how well she could have even heard me. Instead I shake my head.
