Protestors Gather At Barneys Over ‘Shop And Frisk’
Protestors rallied at Barneys in New York Wednesday (Oct. 29) following reports that four Black shoppers were allegedly racially profiled after buying items at the high-end store and Macy’s. “The disrespect that racial profiling does to us as a people will not be tolerated,” said Rev. Evelyn Manns.
The Brooklyn Christian Center pastor joined the demonstration’s organizer, Rev. Clinton Miller and a small group of protesters, demanding change. The stores in question were ordered by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to turn over their racial profiling policies by Friday, Nov. 1.
