Rev. Al Sharpton met with the CEO of Barneys on Tuesday to discuss allegations of racial discrimination by two young Blacks who purchased merchandise at the high-end retail chain this year. Trayon Christian, 19, and Kayla Phillips, 21, were both questioned by the police after they purchased expensive items. "We had a very candid and open meeting today to begin a dialogue," Sharpton said.
