But this is the thing that got me. The really good spots, they won't rent to you, even if you have enough money. You have to be one of the established designer brands before they will lease space to you. I was thinking, back when those people were establishing themselves, black folks were not even allowed in the game.
    Nice ramble, bro.

    I fail to understand what you mean by welcome or that I have been "mugged by reality."

    You rambled and told the facts as you saw it. You are perceiving some unfairness about some stores in a high-end mall being "locked out" to you and your company. Think about what makes something high end and what is interesting to consumers. Or is your product so wonderful that high-end clients should want your product over another brand? Same concept for anchor stores.

    I'm still not clear what you are referring to because of your clipped sentences. If your are not a native English speaker, I'm sorry, but I've read your post several times to try to find out your point.

    Fair enough. Your post is what it is. People will make of it what they want.

    I'm not discussing with people, citizens of the World or the USC Marching band, I was addressing what you wrote to you. You thought about something, then went into a mall to try to rent prime locations for high-end space and they wouldn't do it. You apparently feel your pride is hurt because the world won't get exposure to your product.

    From that, we don't know what your product or service is, how long you have been in business, or whether you are an established business seeking a new location. Are we just supposed to feel bad for you that the "man" is oppressing you or was there another point you were trying to make?

    I think he was pointing out, partially, that even in recent history, there was discrimination and NOT a market that rented to those who had money to rent, but were trying to restrict to those they believed would fit into what the owners of the area felt would be a good fit, sometimes based on racism, sometimes just classism

    Perhaps, but then I could discuss that point with him. I can't say that those things never happen, but he specifically said a high-end mall. Stores in high end malls selling iphone covers are not getting prime locations, so without more information, it is just a stray group of thoughts.
