GREENE VILLE GARDEN STORE IN FORT GREENE, BROOKLYN , NY--DISCRIMINATES
@ 373 Myrtle Avenue
BOYCOTT GREENE VILLE GARDEN @ 373 MYRTLE AVENUE IN FT. GREENE/CLINTON HILL BROOKLYN, NY
BLACK PEOPLE ARE BEING DISCRIMINATED AGAINST BY THE KOREAN STORE OWNER, MIKE!!
TODAY MAY 12, 2013 because I was looking and comparing their high organic prices to other stores, (he told me a $5 block of cheese cost $9!! ) HE FOLLOWED ME IN THE STORE AND HE ACCUSED ME OF BEING A THIEF IN THAT STORE AND HIS OTHER STORE @ 729 FULTON IN BROOKLYN. He said I had been stealing from the 2 stores for 6 months and they had my picture! THAT HE HAD CALLED THE POLICE!! I was shocked!! I think because I AM a Black woman dressed in military fatigues and sneakers for my daily walk, I LOOKED SUSPICIOUS!! I HAVE NEVER SEEN EITHER OF THOSE STORES , LET ALONE BEEN INSIDE THEM !!
A Black lawyer whom I told the story to as he was passing by, demanded to see the picture that MIKE claimed he had of me. MIKE said it was at his other store @ 729 FULTON. Crazy stuff!
I WILL POST A PICTURE OF THIS STORE SOON (so sorry I didn't have my camera with me). I will be posting this on a regular basis. This man didn't care who I was , all he saw was a black woman with a hat on, fatigues and sneakers….therefore GUILTY!! Now I know how FOREST WHITAKER and the CENTRAL PARK FIVE feel. It is just nerve-wracking being accused when you know you are completely INNOCENT!!
I only stopped in that place because a neighbor friend said she shops there when she can't get to the food co-op. ( she just told me she won't be buying anything for there anymore!) I told 3 BLACK PEOPLE who were about to buy flowers there that the owner discriminates against Black people, YET THEY WENT AHEAD AND BOUGHT FLOWERS FROM THIS RACIST!!. One said , "but I need flowers." THIS IS WHY WE AS A PEOPLE HAVE SUCH A DIFFICULT TIME ADVANCING.. WE JUST WON'T SUPPORT EACH OTHER.

Review from Jamie C. ￼ • 0 friends • 8 reviews • Jamie C. Brooklyn, NY ￼ 3/11/2013 Buyer beware! Criminally overpriced everything! Literally everything is marked up beyond what should be reasonable price. $6 milk that's $3 a few blocks away, are you kidding me?! $10 minimum to use a credit card! These crooks deserve to be reported to the Better Business Bureau for gauging the entire neighborhood: https://www.bbb.org/file… ... after you've done that, go to Mr. Coco (414 Myrtle Ave) instead.
