RACIST-Remember the story about the Swiss clothing store that refused to sell Oprah a handbag because the clerk didn't believe she could afford to buy it? Well, shockingly, similar things happen here in the racially harmonious nation called America too, and to people who aren't even famous!Barneys New York has twice been accused of racially profiling paying customers in the last week. 19-year-old Trayon Christian was detained by police after purchasing a $300 Ferragamo belt with money he earned from a part-time job. Despite having proper, valid ID and plenty of money in his bank account NYPD plain clothes officers handcuffed him and placed him in custody. Christian claims he was detained for two hours, while the police stated he was only held for 45 minutes. Christian has filed a lawsuit in conjunction with his accusation. The suit alleges Christian suffered "great physical and mental distress and humiliation."The belt that got Trayon Christian arrestedYesterday, another black youth stepped forward with a story of racially profiling at Barneys. Kayla Phillips, 21, told the New York Daily News that she was accosted by police after buying a $2,500 purse from the flagship Madison Avenue Barneys on February 28th. She purchased the bag with a sizeable tax refund she had just received that day.
