Barneys Pays Settlement, Still Doesn’t Get It

Hey Barneys: Fix Your Racism Problem by Talking to Customers of Color

So Barneys, here's my suggestion: If you're really about the change you're no doubt shooting off press releases around, pull together a group of non-corporate, retail civilians that are Black and brown and know first-hand who it's like to be followed around a store, or cast incredulous looks when they produce their wallet to pay for their pricey purchases. Ask them to watch your staff and share their observations on how you can be a better company that isn't in the stone ages concerning Black and brown dollars because we love to spend money — but not where we aren't welcome. Write that down.
