I don't think this is racial profiling, at least not intentionally. I would bet that this is some crap that came down from corporate level in an effort to comply with federal requirements. The stupid thing is this isn't something that should be expected of unqualified mall clerks in fear of their jobs to do. It's for the mail system and airport screeners.
Still I am getting sick of everyone pulling the race card. Some of you chuckleheads make it sound like the Apple clerks are closet KKK looking to harass A-RAABS or sand******* for the fun of it. That's it, ignorant anti-progressive 'merca afraid of anyone that doesn't look act and talk like they do... yee-fukin-haw! You guys jumping to this conclusion is no better than what you're accusing them of. Y'all are so refined.
