Jul 12 - Black Shoppers Sue Toys'R'Us, $400M for Discrimination
 

 
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Two black shoppers have sued Toys "R" Us saying they were subjected to racial discrimination and unjustified scrutiny at a store in New York.

Patricia Drayton and Valerie Kirk said in the lawsuit that the store in The Bronx, a borough of New York City, discriminated against them by asking them to show their sales receipts. The suit was filed in Manhattan Federal Court on Tuesday.

Drayton said in the lawsuit that she was stopped by a security guard at the door of the store and asked to show her receipt. After refusing to do so, she was made to wait while the employee checked with a cashier to see if she had purchased the merchandise, the lawsuit said.

According to court documents, Kirk was told by a man working at the story that Toys "R" Us's policy required that she show her receipt to him prior to leaving the story. Kirk said in the suit that she refused to comply and was banned from shopping there.

The lawsuit said black shoppers are subjected to compulsory inspection of their sales receipts while white shoppers are not.

The women are asking the court to give the suit class action status to represent all black shoppers who have been subjected to the same procedures by Toys "R" Us.

Metro One, which provides loss prevention services to retail stores, and several people employed by the two companies are also being sued by the women.

They are seeking compensatory and punitive damages of at least $200 million each on behalf of the class.

Representatives for Toys "R" Us and Metro One were not available for comment.

Toys "R" Us, the country's second-largest toy retailer, is owned by a consortium that includes Bain Capital Partners LLC, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. and Vornado Realty Trust.

The company still reports its financial performance because some of its bonds are publicly traded.

Yeah, man.

I usually crumble the receipt into a ball and put it in my mouth right in front of him and say, "Come see me in the morning when I sh*t it out."

That ain't the customer's problem bro. That's the business's problem.

What the fu*k happened to this country? We have to constantly prove our innocence, or face relentless harassment from so-called authorities.

Hypothetical situation. You work the exit at any store of your choice. I just bought something and am on my way out. You stop me and ask to see my receipt. I quickly thrust the slip of paper down the crack of my a.ss and let out a White Castle fart. You still wanna see it?

^^ The fact is that a lot of people shoplift. If I was the owner of a major retail store, I'd order strip searches, x-rays and cavity searches.

I'm white, and I also get randomly asked to show a receipt.

fu*k anyone who says that aint pulling a race card to get some money. They have absolutely no chance of winning that case either, every store has the right to check receipts, whats the big deal if you aint stole anything then they just look it over and youre out. They put detectors in stores too to stop that sh*t, but some stores cant afford that.

From Toys R Us point of view, what would yall do, just let everyone walk out possibly stealing sh*t, or randomly ask people for their receipts to deter shoplifting?

fu*k a bi*ch who pulls a race card in a situation like that.

circuit city is different (at least where I live), they check "everyones" receipt. If you want to find out if your customers are stealing or not then you should check everyones receipt. When you try to do this "random" check bs it's going to cause trouble.

you are messing the point it say black were more likely then whites, which means something is wrong. I'm not saying it could be jim crow in the north or to that effect but something their is wrong. MAybe they live in a black hood where there tend to be more blacks then whites then I can understand. IF not then it will be hard to pled their case, you try be countlessly be called a theif in front of your kids the sh*t ain't fun nor funny

at you uncle tom a.ss n*ggas who let discrimnation go on like that (not made at the white people it happens) if this story proves true that is for the court to come to not us.
