Q & A Racial Profiling Lawsuit

Q: Regarding the mom of five and the recent Walmart lawsuit,
what news source does the best job of reporting
on the issue?

A:  Reporting on the recent case in the news
differs from the overall issue.

Consider compiling and analyzing articles from
different industry sources…

Examples:
News One cites
incidents of prior racial profiling stories.
Allure magazine tackles the subject
from a beauty industry perspective
and includes statistics on how much money
women of color spend
on cosmetics.

Many news sources, such as Abc and Newsweek,
report on
data that Walmart uses to justify
profiling practices.
But examining and questioning
the business practice and its effectiveness
is usually missing from news reports.
