Sources close to Barneys New York on Wednesday said that Shawn “Jay Z” Carter has met with the retailer and given his input on an internal advisory council that will be formed around the issue of racial profiling. Jay Z was also involved in creating new guidelines for the way the retailer interacts with the New York Police Department.
Last month, two black customers were detained by the NYPD at Barneys after making purchases at the store. The incident, along with alleged racial profiling at Macy’s, ignited a firestorm with the Rev. Al Sharpton calling for an investigation by the Attorney General.
