Black women falsely accused of shoplifting expose racial profiling in viral videos.

Three Black women have shared a series of videos on TikTok after they were falsely accused of shoplifting at T.J. Maxx by a police officer who claimed the incident was "reported" to him, but then is seen backtracking on his story. The videos seem to clearly illustrate an incident of racial profiling.

While walking to their car, carrying items they had purchased, the women said they were stopped by a police officer claiming to have received a call that the women were being "suspicious." As the women repeatedly point out in the videos, they believe they were considered suspicious simply "because we're Black."

In the first video, the three women are forced to watch as the police officer has a store clerk check all of their receipts.
