*Rev. Al Sharpton’s oiling up his soap box, shining it up real nice, and plans to stick up the arse of Barneys New York, the Associated Press reports.
Mounting reports have surfaced countrywide regarding two black shoppers who claim to have been racially profiled by workers at the Manhattan location.
Adding insult to injury, the victims say they were harassed even after making expensive purchases.
In response, the Brooklyn chapter of the Rev. Sharpton’s National Action Network wants a sit-down with the CEO of Barneys, and plans to picket the high-end department store have already been arranged if the alleged pattern of discrimination doesn’t end, said NAN president Kirsten John Foy in a statement.
“Barneys New York has zero tolerance for any form of discrimination and we stand by our long history in support of all human rights,” the luxury retailer said in a statement.
Sharpton’s association plans to take full action against the New York Police Department for what it calls “continued use of the discriminatory pattern and practice against people of color.”
