The argument that the final consumer price is affected by shoplifting is a fallacious argument, most of the big companies already account for losses in production, transport, etc. Retail shoplifting probably is already calculate even before a product is launched.

Now, regarding the privilege bit I tend to have the same perception. It's a privilege for medium class and white people to be above any suspicion, and from all the so called "lifestylism" praxis this is imo the most innocuous. The only success is the measure of how much of your pantry you can fill without paying for it, and if you really need it or depends on it, the chances are that you will be more watched.
