- ―Chloe to Chelsea Daniels

Role in the episode
When both Raven Baxter and her friend Chelsea Daniels apply for jobs at Sassy's, the popular mall clothing store, Chloe acts exceptionally perky and has the two girls perform tasks to assess their abilities. However, despite Raven's obvious skills and Chelsea's incompetence, Chelsea received the position while Raven was rejected. As the girls, and their friend Eddie Thomas ponder how Raven wasn't hired after doing so well, Raven has a vision that shows Chloe pointedly saying she doesn't hire black people, showing her true nature and persona as a bigot. After telling her friends about her vision, Eddie reveals how he notices that Sassy's is lacking in any employees of color.
After talking to her parents about what happened, Raven and her friends enlists the help of anchorwoman Yolanda Johnson to expose Chloe's racist policy and true colors. The plan begins with Chelsea going into work with a hat containing a camera, as well as Raven entering the store disguised as an older man. When Chloe notices her, she shows her prejudiced beliefs by instructing Chloe to keep a closer eye on "him", though is able to do so without explicitly revealing her motivation. When Chloe roughly interacts with the disguised Raven, she claims she is the higher up for the store who has come to check on the establishment's quality. When she points out how the store doesn't have decorations for Black History Month, Chloe claims that she enthusiastically celebrated the month. When asked if she has any employees of color, Chloe again lies and says she did, using Raven's job application as "proof".
The gang further tests Chloe by having Eddie go in and apply for the job in Raven's presence. Not wanting to be revealed in front of who she believes to be her boss, Chloe allowed him to submit his application. But once in private with Chelsea, the bigoted manager reveals that she planned to throw out Eddie's application once her "boss" left. When questioned by Chelsea why, Chloe explicitly reveals that she didn't hire black people, proving that Raven's vision is true. With Chloe's confession on tape, Yolanda airs the store on the news, exposing the blatant case of discrimination. As a result, Chloe is fired from Sassy's and the store releases a public apology.
- Chloe Hunter is similar to Miss Hendra from Smart Guy; both are the managers of clothing stores who are revealed to have racist policies regarding their store, which are ultimately exposed by the protagonists.
