New permission to discriminate?

I was at Walmart on Saturday helping my mother do her shopping. Well, when we were coming up to the door to leave the greeter had a black woman standing there while he was looking through her bags. In the not so distant past I had been told ( by employees ) that they only look at receipts if you have large merchandise that is not in a bag ( mostly electronics ) but here he is singling her out and looking very carefully through her bags. There were a lot of white people just passing them by not even being considered to be checked out. My mother was behind her and offered to show her receipt and said to her "you are fine sweetie, go ahead." After seeing this and talking to my mother about it I was pissed and after taking her home I went back to Walmart to talk to the customer service desk. Well, I found out the rules had changed ( not so very long ago ) and they were allowed to search anyone at anytime. Basically Walmart just gave their employees with prejudice a free rein to discriminate. I got very pissed at this ( still am ) am I however overreacting? What do DU'ers think?

Just to let you know, I am ashamed.

There are four counties in Washington state that are red. I am in the worst one which is Lewis County. Yes, the one with that damn billboard.

What do I do?

In my red county there are 6 positions to vote for who are all Republican with no one running against them. I have no desire to vote for anyone who may have voted for trump ( or any Repub.) Do I just not put anything or write in something else?
