Ngan Vu. On Wednesday night, an employee at Good Nature Market on Broadway denied entry to four Black men stating that the store was closed, but then allowed several white people to enter afterward. After videos of the incident hit Instagram on Thursday, the employee was fired, according to a Yale statement.
This incident comes amid ongoing rallies protesting police brutality and systemic racism against Black people following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. The videos show an Asian employee telling him and three other friends that the store was closed. According to one of the four men, Wilby Martin, Jr. The market is usually open 24 hours a day. The videos also capture Yale Police Department squad cars rolling up to the scene, and the four men relaying to officers what they experienced. According to Martin, a white woman gained entry to the store after the employee in question let her in later in the night.

After also deciding not to purchase anything, she went to get security as the men asked the employee why they were being denied service, Martin said. The final video captures a different white woman walking into the store after police had arrived at the scene. The way they treated me and my friends is no good, not in this society, not innot in New Haven. Martin said he is not looking to take legal action at this time, but he does want to sit down with the owner of the business.

Yale stands by the men who experienced this discrimination and is grateful for the dignity they showed in a very trying circumstance. The ownership also said it will immediately implement an anti-discrimination training program for all employees at both of its locations. Another employee confirmed by phone that the store would be closed for an extended period of time. Now is a time for unity and we will do all we can to foster it.
He said that only the Yale Police Department was on the scene. As of publication, the original Instagram post had garnered more than 2, likes and more than comments.
City health director Maritza Bond told the Independent that inspectors found live mice and roaches, expired food and food kept at hazardous temperatures. According to a comment on the original Instagram post, Snackpass has suspended Good Nature Market from the platform indefinitely.
The owner, Sun Yup Kim, and the employee involved in the incident could not be reached for comment. Another GHeav employee, James Park, told the News that the employee in question had been terminated but declined to give his name. This is a frustrating situation and that was my first reaction.
