Portland Store Accused of Discriminating against African Americans

A Portland store has been accused of race discrimination after a customer visited its store and found that products designed for multi-cultural use were being kept behind a locked display.

An African American customer went to a Fred Meyer store in search of shampoo and conditioner, only to find that all of the products designed for multi-cultural hairstyles were kept under lock and key and could not be accessed without assistance from a store employee. The products marketed toward Caucasians, however, were displayed on open shelving.

Many of the products behind the locked display case were valued at $10 or less. This, alleges the customer, is discrimination based on a racial stereotype.
