NO, YOU DONT have to spend at least $5…I really get upset when mechants pull this ish in Black/poor communities.  You can always just take your business elsewhere. However,  you may not have that option, the time or not to mention, the expense of getting in your car and driving down the block. No one else has this madness going on in their community. HOW LONG , BLACK PEOPLE, WILL WE LAY DOWN WHILE WERE WALKED OVER?

The link below has some good consumer information on this subject and many more.  EDUCATE, AGITATE AND ORGANIZE
