When Mr. Barnett waits on white customers while ignoring TJ, Cassie tries to remind him of their presence. He calls her a "little nigger," then throws her out of the store for arguing with him. I think Cassie is just learning exactly how ugly racism gets in daily activities like simply going to the store.
