“That's a lie. You can't treat people like dogs into the modern era and keep expecting them to finance businesses that treat them like second class citizens. If it happened to any other people (gay, Jewish) would you have a problem with this statement and then make your own?”

“So . . . the cops are psychic? They knew he was carrying an expensive purchase . . . somehow?”

“They were undercover. They may have acted unprompted. The article doesn't make it clear. And even if a Macys employee did voice suspicions to the cops, the suit seems to be based on the actions the cops took. Again, it could be the lack of detail in the article but nothing is mentioned about the possible actions of an employee.

FD - I see nothing wrong with an employee having suspicions about a person. To prove racism . . it would have to be that the employee has voiced suspicions *only* about black shoppers.”

“We're talking conviction rates. And as you can see from this story and others, when the only suspects the police are out looking for are of a certain color, guilt be damned, they'll find their man. There are stop and frisk figures that prove this. At the much smaller percentage that whites were stopped at, an overwhelming majority were actually committing a crime.

Perhaps if police, like you, would stop being blinded by stereotype, they might actually arrest true perpetrators of crimes and not imaginary bogey men.”

“So its your point that the blacks that are convicted of 50 pct of all murders did not actually commit those murders? Or is it your point that thousands and thousands of whites get away with murder?”

“How did the profiling "work" in this case and the others when these were legitimate purchases? The last famous case of shoplifting I recall was Winona Ryder and she was guilty.”

“Your comment is akin to saying most sunburn victims are white so we should watch black people for signs of sunburn. If whites are the majority of shoplifters then why would blacks be singled out for suspicion?”

moderate1 on Oct 26, 2013 at 01:08:19

“Because blacks are wildly more likely to commit crime than whites. Whites commit crime and theft at a rate lower than their percentage of population. So every white person you see is less likely to commit a crime than the population as a whole. Blacks commit crime at a rate well in excess of their percentage of population. For murder its 5 times their percentage. For theft its 3 times. So every black you see is 3 times more likely to steal than the population as a whole....and the population rate would be much lower if the black numbers werent skewing it upwards so heavily...”

"Most retail inventory loss statistics have shown that the majority of shoplifters to be of the Caucasian race. To concentrate surveillance on minority customers is not only improper, but is an ineffective method of controlling shoplifting losses at most locations."”

Shanda Smalls on Oct 26, 2013 at 10:22:59

“And we ALL pay the price for this from the mistreatment to the higher prices as consumers so we should all care groundless of race/color.”

“There are many Caucasians who have learned that the best time for the most unfettered shoplifting is while blacks are in the store.”

“and the biggest source of "loss" is employees. So it's even stupider to focus on the black customers.”

“Wasting time trying to get r.acists to see that. They lack the ability to reason well. They don't seem to understand that we can't just go around shooting people we dislike...if we lived in a society like that, ironically, most people would be taking out the r.acists FIRST. There are less of them than anyone else. So they should count themselves lucky that society doesn't think like them...”
