Time to picket those racist stores.

Rob Brown, star of ‘Treme,’ says he was arrested at Macy’s after buying mom watch

The actor has filed a lawsuit against the retailer, alleging he was ‘paraded’ through the Herald Square location in handcuffs and placed in a holding cell after making a purchase — for no reason other than an employee there was skeptical his credit card was really his. Brown has starred in blockbusters like 'Finding Forrester,' 'Coach Carter,' and had a role in 'The Dark Knight Rises'.

( Mr. Brown is not exactly the "star" of Treme. but does have a continuing role)

Another black Barneys shopper accused of credit card fraud after buying $2,500 purse:

Kayla Phillips, 21, says she was swarmed by four plainclothes cops after using her debit card to buy a $2,500 orange suede Céline bag. Her experience is eerily similar to that of Trayon Christian, 19, who filed a discrimination suit this week accusing Barneys and the NYPD of racial profiling.

19-year-old Trayon Christian, filed a discrimination suit this week accusing Barneys and the NYPD of racially profiling him. Christian, who is black, alleged he was followed into the street by undercover cops and accused of fraud after he used his debit card to buy a $349 Ferragamo belt at Barneys on April 29.
