Didn't you hear?

A store locking up its condom display in order to thwart shoplifters is racist.
A group of Boston community activists are protesting what they claim is a discriminatory move to lock up condoms in a Dorchester CVS pharmacy.

The delegation of Boston civil rights leaders, health advocates and community members claims the Rhode Island-based pharmacy chain has a practice of locking up condoms at the CVS pharmacy on 778 Dudley St. and in other communities of color all over the country. (Emphasis mine)
Good Day to You, Sir

In the community of color where I live, the Hollywood video was closed because 300 rentals a month were not being returned. I also notice while shopping at the neighborhood stores that many packages are often found empty on the shelves with the item of value missing. I hate all the security but understand why my neighborhood stores have to do it. Knowing that a condom is under lock and key should actually provide more reassurance that the product is whole and has not been tampered with.
