Guilty until you leave the shop

What is it with my being followed/stalked every time I go shopping here? As soon as I enter an establishment security seem to straighten up and become more alert.  They follow me everywhere I go (on supposed rounds). It doesn't matter if I have been to the shop many times before or not, I always have a constant cling-on. (Not to be confused with the noble Klingon.)

I am not sure if it has something to do with my being of obvious African descent or not (Ha ha ha). It does not matter if the cling-on Inspector Clouseau is non-brown or brown, they all seem to have been fed the same line. I was even accused of 'casing a joint.’  What the hey?! Someone told me it is a global phenomenon called 'Shopping while Black' in the United States. —CR
