Herbert Daughtry and Hazel Dukes, president of the New York State chapter of the NAACP, speaks to the media outside Macy’s flagship store, in New York, after a meeting with the CEO of Macy’s to talk about racial profiling, Monday, Nov. 4, 2013. (AP Photo/Richard Drew) by Deepti HajelaAssociated Press Writer NEW YORK (AP) — The Rev. Al Sharpton said he and other civil rights leaders had a “brutally honest” meeting Monday with the CEO of Macy’s over racial profiling, and demanded that the department store lay out how they will guarantee the practice doesn’t happen before the holiday shopping season begins. The meeting on Monday with CEO Terry Lundgren follows an incident in which an actor on the HBO series “Treme” was detained by police after buying his mother a $1,350 Movado watch. Robert Brown filed a lawsuit last month after he said he was stopped inside Macy’s flagship Manhattan store last June because he is Black. Brown’s accusation came after two other Black shoppers said they were racially profiled and detained by police after making expensive purchases at Barneys New York. In a statement, Macy’s said it doesn’t tolerate discrimination of any kind and “considers its loss prevention policies to be among the very best and most progressive in the retailing industry.”

Bullying does not lead to suicide

RAYNARD JACKSON (NNPA)—Hardly a week goes by when there is not a tragic story of a teenager committing suicide. Tragic as these deaths are, there is absolutely no causation between bullying and suicide. The media’s simplistic and sensational coverage of these teenage deaths are very problematic in this regard. Suicide is never, let me repeat, suicide is never the result of one cause. Suicide is always the result of a culmination of events that triggers the deadly act; any one event could be the tips the scales.
