    Not even the inside of a store can provide a Black man–in this case, Forest Whitaker— in New York City refuge from “Stop and Frisk.”
    This time, however, the NYPD is not behind the act; it was allegedly an employee of the Upper East Side’s Milano Market who carried out the embarrassing pat down. TMZ reports that Whitaker said he was falsely accused of lifting an item off the store’s shelf and subsequently frisked by an employee. An eyewitness told the entertainment site that the Academy Award winner was frisked in plain view of everyone.
    Of course, the shake down produced nothing belonging to the store and Whitaker left the establishment angry and embarrassed.
    The actor’s rep told TMZ, “This was an upsetting incident given the fact that Forest did nothing more than walk into the deli. What is most unfortunate about this situation is the inappropriate way store employees are treating patrons of their establishment.
    “Frisking individuals without proof/evidence is a violation of rights.”
    The rep added, “Forest did not call the authorities at the request of the worker who was in fear of losing his employment. Forest asked that, in the future, the store change their behavior and treat the public in a fair and just manner.”
    Milano Market has not released a statement on the incident.

    No, they didn't know "who he was."

    He was just a BLACK MAN in their Deli. And, so, when he picked something up, he just musta been/HAD TO BE STEALING!

    W.W.B. = "walking while Black"

    THIS IS Milano Market, people..... Take a good look.

    New Yorkers, take heed.

    Such a business does not deserve our money.

    If he was a black man he would have filed suit so they knew never to do that again

    Why consent and submit to a pat down from someone who isn't even a police officer?
