Williamsburg boutique accused of racial profiling sparks protest
WILLIAMSBURG, Brooklyn — In the heart of the progressive, gentrified, and diverse neighborhood of Williamsburg Brooklyn — a passionate Friday evening protest took place over an alleged case of racial profiling "shopping while black" in front of the popular Amarcord Vintage clothing shop. Attorney Nancy Bedard says she was trying on clothes with her 19-year old daughter at the boutique last Friday evening, when a shop employee allegedly accused them of stealing, claiming they left the dressing room with one less item than they had when they went in.
