Racial profiling has recently become even more of a cause for concern in NYC department stores, most notably Barney’s and Macy’s. However, it’s not just the PR battle that major retailers are facing; those who feel they have been discriminated against are now becoming litigious.

Actor Rob Brown has filed suit in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, claiming Macy’s falsely detained him as a result of racial profiling. In the filing, Brown said he wishes to bring a class action lawsuit against the company for repeated profiling.
