My Chinese friend wants to buy a Hermes "Birkin"purse.
She walked into a Hermes boutique, chose her bag, laid down her credit card and the salesperson flat out refused to sell it to her because... she is Chinese.
Hermes has a policy not to sell too many bags to Chinese people. They flat out refuse them.
My friend has asked me to go to the Hermes boutique to buy the purse, saying I'll be successful in it because I'm a Westerner.
I wonder if this discrimination is even legal? In any and all cases, I can say, "only in France".
