UWS Apple Store Sued After Alleged Racial Profiling Incident

In 2011, Brian Johnston and Nile Charles, both African-American, filed a civil lawsuit against Apple Inc. claiming a tall, 225-pound white male employee approached them in an intimidating fashion at a store in New York. The man told them they needed to shop or see a Mac specialist. Before the men could respond, reportedly the employee said, "You know the deal. And before you say I'm racially discriminating against you, let me stop you. I am discriminating against you. I don't want 'your kind' hanging out in the store." According to the civil suit filed by Johnston and Charles, the men were "shocked and humiliated" and used a cellphone to record the incident.
