I was in the Jaguar dealership today cause there is a Starbucks there doing some studying because one of my classes was cancelled today. As I was sitting at a round table with nice, leather, comfy chairs surrounded by people with loads of more money that I’ll ever have, a man walked in who was obviously homeless and he walked in and sat down on a chair in front of the TV in the Starbucks section of the dealership.

Within one minute, two security officers came up and escorted the man out. He didn’t do anything wrong. He didn’t bother anyone. He just came in and sat down. Yet simply because of his appearance and the realization that there is a “lower-class citizen” in the “upper-class citizens” turf, he was immediately escorted out.

Is this right? Is this wrong? Was it safety precautions? Was it for the sake of preserving the professional appearance of the dealership? But I was surprised how quickly the situation unraveled. May I not be one who judges on the outward appearance but be a person who loves everyone.
