Would You Call This Racism....Or Did I read Into It Too Much?

So here's the story; My friends and I decide to go shopping last Thursday in downtown Sydney, Australia (in case I didn't tell you where we were)....Now, before we head to the shopping district, we make a stop at a popular spot in Chinatown (I have come to the conclusion that every country has a Chinatown)....the first spot at the mall we notice is a Japanese toy/ video store, and guess what Lucky eyes? Vinyls...Artistically wonderful Vinyls, and you all know how much I love Art, and the whole Japanese/ Manga culture...oh and they had swords as well (see me below in my Go Go Gadget coat), since this was the first stop, I informed the store owner who was a very cool Japanese man that my intention was to purchase a few vinyls after I finish my mall shopping...he agrees, and we exchange info, and I move on.....Now at the end of our spree, I decided to head back and pick up the vinyls and maybe some anime (Naruto and Bleach people.....mind out the gutter)...The owner must've went to lunch, because I saw a lady that wasn't present before....So I approach the vinyls as a man of Asian/ Oriental descent was also looking at them....he chooses his, and as I pick one of my choices up and getting ready to pick another, the lady (store clerk) rushes to the glass display, takes the vinyl...shuts the glass more than one lock apparently, and finally locks shut a bottom lock....I stood there in amazement, and said "You know what, I'm good"....Now you tell me what happened...was I a victim in this case or is it just me....I posted some nice pics of the shop below:

I'll have another story for y'all tomorrow...
