19. And again, your own line of logic, which discounts the shop owner's race….

Which is obviously the primary factor by which she found herself challenged and reported in a predominantly white society in the first place, is perfectly in tune with perpetuating a systematic application of white privilege.

Now of course, you can continue find excuses for why the police had to be called on some non-white woman who was doing nothing more than closing up her own shop, but all that is is a demonstration on your own part of how easy it is for white people to be blind to the application of white privilege.

Every excuse that you use to discount the narrative, and how matters of race are factored into it, is merely another way that you're showing how blind to white privilege that any beneficiary of it can be.
