Not getting the apology for racial profiling they are looking for, the African United Baptist Association is calling for a boycott of Sobeys stores in their communities. And the boycott may well soon spread to the Atlantic provinces.
An interview with Rev. Lennett Anderson, organizer of the Sobeys anti-racism rally in Tantallon: “Race is not a card I play, it’s the life I live.”
Sobeys is appealing a racial profiling decision by the Human Rights Commission. Protesters gathered at the Tantallon Sobeys to show their displeasure. “We are asking Sobeys not to drag an innocent woman into this process all over again, re-victimizing the victim.”
