Former Employee Alleges That Versace Uses Secret Codes When Black Customers Enter Their Stores

African-Americans have billions in spending power yet you have certain markets that will take their money and then turn around and discriminate against them.  Blacks are often stereotyped in retail stores when that just isn’t the case.

According to the DailyKos, most theft, fraud, Property Crime, Larceny-Theft, Burglary, Forcible Rape and Aggravated assault are done by white people yet the media portrays blacks as the worst criminals on the planet.  So not true!!!

See what TMZ reported:

Versace secretly alerts staffers when an African-American person enters the store … according to an ex-employee who claims the company also dissed his fashion sense and then canned him.

The man worked in a Bay Area store, and in a lawsuit says a manager told him about a store code called “D410,” which was used to casually let co-workers know a black person was present — as in, we got a D410 in menswear.

BTW … that’s the code for all black shirts in Versace stores … according to the suit.

The employee says he shocked the manager by responding, “You know that I’m African-American?”

He says after that revelation they refused to give him rest breaks and fired him after just 2 weeks. In the suit, he says he was told he was canned because he hadn’t “lived the luxury life.”

Translation: you got no swag, son.

He’s suing for unpaid wages and damages. Versace denied the allegations and has already filed a request for dismissal of the suit.
