White Girls Steal the Most, She Says
In a viral TikTok post on July 7, 2023, creator Lyss Lyss (@alyssacardib) boldly stated that upper-middle-class teenage white girls were notorious for stealing things.
She Draws Upon Personal Experience
Despite potential pushback, Alyssa fearlessly shared her belief and recounted personal experiences that shed light on the issue.
‘Some of the Biggest Kleptos Around’
The video started with Alyssa introducing herself and confidently stating, “I will say this once, and I will say it again, but upper-middle-class teenage white girls are some of the biggest kleptos around.”
Buying Things Just to Show She’s Not Stealing
She recalled a college consumer behavior class discussion where she mentioned buying something at a store, even if she didn’t want it, to avoid looking like she had stolen something.
‘I Am the Profile’
Her professor reassured her, but Alyssa candidly retorted, “Babe, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but I am the profile.”
Challenging Stereotypes About Theft
Drawing attention to the prevalence of surveillance cameras in makeup sections at Target and Walmart, Alyssa challenged stereotypes about theft.
An Eye-Opening Experience
She also shared an eye-opening high school experience where she joined the cheer squad, went shopping with new friends, and unwittingly witnessed multiple girls stealing underwear.
Viewers Had Their Own Stories
These incidents and anecdotes from other users aligned with Alyssa’s belief that white upper-middle-class teenagers are commonly associated with theft.
She Wants to Drop Negative Stereotypes
While acknowledging that not all Black teenagers steal, Alyssa emphasized the need to drop negative stereotypes and treat everyone equally.
The Double Standard While Shopping
She highlighted the double standard where white shoppers might be perceived as harmless, making it easier for them to go unnoticed while stealing. In contrast, innocent Black teenagers and others have faced false accusations.
Everyone Who Watched Agreed
The viral video sparked widespread agreement among TikTok users, who shared similar stories of witnessing or knowing about such thefts.
This Resonated With Many
Alyssa’s unapologetic honesty resonated with many. One user wrote, “I know this from when I worked at Nordstrom. The number of teenage girls Lost Prevention caught and their parents were well off.”
