Barneys, New York City and the NYPD have settled a racial profiling lawsuit filed by 21-year-old Trayon Christian for $45,000. At age 19, Christian, a black college student, alleged he was racially profiled and accused of credit-card fraud while shopping at a Barneys store in the city. Though he was able to produce identification before making his purchase, a Barneys cashier still called the cops once he left the store. He was then tracked down by an undercover cop and taken into the station despite reproducing his identification and proof of purchase. A spokesperson for the city's Law Department said in a statement that "settling was in the best interest of the city." [Fashionista]
