WATCH: Storekeeper: African American Girls Aren’t Welcome

A viral video shows a storekeeper at Jenkinson’s Aquarium gift shop in New Jersey kicking out a group of African American girls because – she says — “they aren’t welcome here.”

A Patterson, New Jersey woman named Attiya Barrett posted the video to her Facebook account on Friday, after she visited the aquarium with the girls. The girls were with the Princess to Queenz summer camp, an educational summer program for girls in New Jersey.

Barrett says that after visiting the aquarium, the girls wanted to visit the gift shop. But when they went in, an employee named Linda told them that they couldn’t come in without a chaperone.
