Jay Z Will Move Ahead With Barneys Collaboration

Hold up
— Hov is staying put. Rap mogul Jay Z took to his Life + Times website on
Friday, Nov. 15 to announce that he will keep his holiday collaboration line
with Barneys, amid accusations of the

luxury retailer racial profiling black
customers.

The
entrepreneur, 43, still under pressure to sever ties with the brand after
reports surfaced that two black customers had been subject to racial profiling
by store employees, once again defended his business partnership with the
brand. “While I await the findings of the Attorney General’s Office, I
have agreed to move forward with the launch of BNY SCC collection under the
condition that I have a leadership role and seat on a council specifically
convened to deal with the issue of racial profiling,” he wrote.

“As
I previously stated, the collaboration with Barneys has always been about
giving and The Shawn Carter Foundation,” added the star, who again signed
off on the statement under his birth name Shawn Carter. Beyonce’s husband first addressed the backlash on Oct. 26 and said that we was
being “demonized” for not speaking immediately on the issue: “I
move and speak based on facts and not emotion,” he wrote.
On
Friday, Jay Z emphasized that the decision to continue his partnership with
Barneys was his: “I am in a unique position to use my voice to affect
change to this disturbing issue,” he said.
“The
easy position would have been to walk away and leave policy making to others
hoping that someone addresses the problem. I will not leave the outcome to
others. I will take this into my own hands with full power to recommend, review
and revise policies and guidelines moving forward. I am choosing to take this
head on.”
