Because I saw preferential treatment being given to spaqnish speaking customers while I was waiting 2 hours to have a service ticket printed up and attempting to speak to the manager who was avoiding speaking by instructing his staff to tell me he wouldnt be in untl closing.

No, you may not be a racist but you are playing the race card in this case. If you are going to make such bold statements, be prepared to have the burded of proof be placed squarely on you.

To me as i read it is just more to it but i think we should all move on the side of " caution " i think that the upper brass at BBY should take a statement from the customer first because if they call the store " if it true or not " they can paint him as a bigot or aggressor that he/she was racist to them but is just boiled down to " he said / she said "
and if you want to know i was discriminated in the pass by hispanic employee working out of store 478,483,835,1028 in the past from careless attitude toward me or saying something in spanish that is racist because i'm white and the only reason why they do this because i report them to BBY head brass in a form of a retaliation against me for many difference reason and the most common is that
1.They refuses a price match from a competitor
2.They keep me wait for an item if it not on a floor or if i do a pickup and i go down there with my documents and is not there
Since i move up here to buffalo,ny i will one day will go to a BBY store near me and i will compare how they treat me up here from when i use lived in queens,ny

why does this have anything to do with your race?
Why ask questions for which you already know the answer? If something has worked well in the past, it is much more likely to continue being used since it gets results, whether deserved or not.

While I'm sorry to hear that you think you were discriminated, I can assure you this is not the case. Best Buy is one of the leading Retail stores, for not only consumers, and its employees to welcome everyone from all walks of life, no matte the skin of your color, sexual preference, etc.

Sounds to me like the "Hispanic" customers were helped before you because they didn't need to see a manager, and could be helped by the counter-folks. Did you expect everyone behind you in line to wait until a manager was there to speak to you? As others have pointed out, the determination was likely made by the service center, who will have no idea what race you are...
Regarding the service, a community connector should be along to help you resovle that issue.
