NY civil rights group seeks meeting with Barneys CEO over alleged racial profiling of shoppers

A civil rights group wants to meet with the CEO of Barneys New York in the wake of racial profiling claims by two shoppers at the high-end department store.

The president of the Brooklyn chapter of Al Sharpton's National Action Network says the group plans to picket Barneys if the alleged pattern of racial profiling doesn't stop.

Kirsten John Foy says in a news release that NAN plans other action against the New York Police Department for what it calls "continued use of the discriminatory pattern and practice against people of color."

Two black shoppers this week accused Barneys of detaining them after they made expensive purchases at the store in Manhattan.

One of the alleged victims has filed a lawsuit against Barneys, the city and its police department.
