ANOTHER black Barneys shopper, 21, claims she was racially profiled when cops demanded to know how she could afford $2,500 designer handbag.

Kayla Phillips splashed out on the CĂ©line handbag at the Manhattan department store in February - and four cops approached her in the street
They eventually let her go after she showed them her ID - but she is now suing the NYPD for $5 million
It comes after Trayon Christian, 19, was hadcuffed after buying a $350 Salvatore Ferragamo belt and accused of fraud
Mr Christian is also suing Barneys and NYPD for unspecified damages

Maybe the people who profile black folk would like to see them get mega cash thru lawsuits.

In both cases the workers were probably jealous that a black person can afford such luxury.

I'm still awaiting Jay Z's comments considering he's launching a new clothing line with Barney's.

If he pulled out this would send a strong message to all discriminating business owners. Brown people need to stick together and stay consistent. If one brownie was profiled then we would all be profiled.

Agree. The pressure's on him. Let's see if he puts principles ahead of business.

But let's be fair this was one store which could be a sign that they need new employees.
