Now that I'm thinking about it more...I do kind of feel like this may have been racially charged. I still agree with frau for the most part but at the same time I can't help but think whether or not the manager would have been so rude and unprofessional to a white woman with a group of white women or other non-black people. That's the dilemma that POC have to deal with, especially black people.

The racial element cannot be ignored. Our appearance (skin color, how we present ourselves, our clothes, etc) does have an influence on how people treat us. So my big question is did the manager treat the makeup artist that way because she was black and she felt she didn't deserve her professionalism? Would she have been more professional if the woman weren't black?

I think it can be both.
