Kendriana Washington uploaded a series of video & # 39; s to Twitter on July 15, capturing the exchange she shared with the employee, who is only referred to as Tanya.

The video starts with a noticeably upset and furious Kendriana describing the moments that led her to press record on her phone and stream it live to Facebook.

Self-described as & # 39; Intersectional Radical Pro-Black Feminist, writer and artist & # 39; on her social media accounts, Kendriana accuses Tanya of discriminating against her and ignoring her civil rights.

& # 39; This woman is calling the police on me … after telling me I didn't have enough money in my account [to pay for her prescription] & # 39 ;, she starts in the clip.

& # 39; This woman now calls the police if I have cash and I have asked her several times to process my payment.

& # 39; She calls the police because she doesn't like the tone of my voice. They messed up my recipe three times. & # 39;

She then accused Tanya of wanting to play the victim and insisting that she go nowhere until the case is settled successfully.

Tanya can be heard vaguely saying on the phone that Kendriana & # 39; refuses to hear her & # 39 ;.

To which Kendriana responds: & # 39; I don't need to hear you. Do you hear me what? I told you I don't need to hear an apology, what I want is to pack my things and leave. & # 39;

Tanya then accuses her of yelling at the top of her voice & # 39; in a conversation with a 911 operator that would have Kendriana answer that she raised her voice, instead of a & # 39; strict tone & # 39; to assume.

While Tanya hangs up the phone from the police, the dialogue continues to escalate.

& # 39; Just stand up so I can come and help you & # 39 ;, Tanya tells Kendriana. She then continues by telling her that she has lost her right to support staff & # 39; & # 39; and that the police would soon escort her from the site.

Another staff member then intervenes to complete the Kendriana transaction and expresses his empathy with regard to the activist's frustration.

Kendriana votes for the second pharmacist who, according to her, would never have been called to the police if she wasn't black, to which the woman behind the counter replied: "I have black friends … it means I'm not racist." 39;

Reflecting later on the online exchange, Kendriana doubled in the belief that she had been racially profiled and suspected: & # 39; This would not have happened to me if I were not Black, you can hear the manager say she is police called because I would not hear her & # 39; & # 39 ;.

& # 39; She wanted me to be dragged out of the store. STOP CALLING UP THE POLICE ON BLACK PEOPLE. I was not a threat, I did not break the law. & # 39;

Since then, CVS has responded to the video & # 39; s thread on Twitter, ensuring that the company does not tolerate discriminatory practices.

# We do not tolerate practices that discriminate against any of our customers, and we take your experience very seriously. Can you please send us a DM with your telephone number and full name so that we can pass this on to our team to help you further? & # 39; The CVS message is

Kendriana says she later spoke with a CVS representative from the company, but she is less left than less satisfied with the exchange.

& # 39; Today I spoke to the district leader about shop 10175 and not only apologized for the discrimination I endured, rejecting, insinuating that I don't know what racism is, but she let me know she is a friend of 20 years to be one of the women who has discriminated against me, & she claimed in a tweet last night.

& # 39; This is an IMPORTANT conflict of interest and it is a blatant issue that Debbie's friend is the person who collects our complaints and concerns and conducts this investigation. This tells me that you do not take them with you, so I risk damage by risking and violating my freedom with a false police call. & # 39;

Both Kendriana and CVS still have to respond to a request from DailyMail.com for comment.
