It didn't have anything to do with the potential use as a weapon. That was apparently just someone not understanding why they have the policy in place and coming up with their own explanation most likely due to all the security concerns. Since she was allowed to give unopened beer, she didn't even think of that as being a potential weapon until the coke lady pointed it out. Not racism, just someone trying to provide explanations for things she is uncertain of.

She hadn't been hearing of people juggling unopened items, so wouldn't have offered that as an explanation as just an exmaple.
