NEW YORK-Two African American males are suing an Apple Store in New York City for racial discrimination. Brian Johnston and Nile Charles claim that they were told they were told they were not welcome at the store due to their race. Apple Insider reports:
“And before you say I’m racially discriminating against you, let me stop you. I am discriminating against you,” the lawsuit claims the employee said. “I don’t want ‘your kind’ hanging out in the store.”
Johnston and Charles say they were “shocked and humiliated” by the alleged incident. They reportedly used their cell phones to record the confrontation when they say another Apple Store employee approached them.
“Now you have to go,” one of the employees is claimed in the lawsuit to have said. “If you want to know why, it’s because I said so. CONSIDER ME GOD. You have to go.”
