Retail Discrimination and Racist Policies that Target African-Americans

Written by Florida A&M University on Monday, 19 November 2012 16:43.

The issue of racial profiling in retail stores gained attention nationally with the production of ABC’s “True Colors,” a series which brought to light retail discrimination and racist policies that singled out African-American consumers. As consumers, many African-Americans have been perceived as potential shoplifters. The presence of African-Americans within the retail setting incites many employees immediately to go into loss prevention mode. According to Myiah Shows, a former Wet Seal employee and fourth-year allied health student at Florida A&M University, “When it came to customers, there were just certain things we as employees were taught to look out for. If you were black it was definitely taken into consideration.”

Written by Gregg Thompson on Monday, 19 November 2012 16:36.

You know about Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving when people line up outside the big department stores and discount stores in the middle of the night to buy cheap Christmas presents. Black Friday is a big day for retailers, but I don't think it's nearly as important as Small Business Saturday. That's because small business is the heart and soul of our economy.

Written by Devin Robinson on Monday, 12 November 2012 19:04.

Growing old is not something we can avoid, but growing old and broke is! I speak about the Consumption Theory in my latest book, Power M.O.V.E.: How to Transition from Employee to Employer.

Student Loans Cause 36 Million to Drop Out

Written by Charlene Crowell on Monday, 12 November 2012 19:02.

According to a new report, since 2009, 36 million Americans have attended college without earning a degree. Consequently, 850,000 individual private loans valued at more than $8 billion are now in default. With high and variable interest rates, these loans can cost students more in repayment than the actual cost of tuition. From 2005 to 2011 alone, private student loan debt more than doubled from $56 billion to $140 billion.
