    Jay Z should continue his relationship with Barneys even though the store is racial. I think this because as a business owner there will be pros and cons and I believe that even though the store is racial , Jay Z will still make a profit from this store. Even though the store is racial Jay Z will still have customers because of his clothes he’s making, also his music that will be in the store. Barney store might be racial but that has nothing to do with Jay Z merchandises in the store. And if there is a profit problem about this Jay Z might as well just make his own store without Barney
    Jay Z shouldn’t continue his relationship with Barneys, because the store is racial. If a famous basketball player wants to buy a expensive purse for his mom that’s doesn’t mean that he has stole a credit card. In that case it doesn’t make sense to have a store if someone can’t charge a great amount of money on their card especially if the merchandise in the store is very expensive. Jay should just make his own store and have all of his products in there with a different type of security maybe better security then Barneys.

    I believe that Jay Z should open his clothing line in Barneys because they are a good store to invest in . He will recieve alot of money just for one single clothing item or acessorie . He will be making abou 10 grand just because he sold about 5 or 6 items !

    I do not believe that Jay Z should open his clothing line in Barneys . The fact that Jay Z is a black man and they are going against the african american population is just sick . Jay Z is a part of the population of people that they are discriminating . That Isnt right for his african american fans nor for himself . He should open his clothing line through another store . If a store is racist than why open a line there ? Especially if there against your kind . Hes basically supporting rasicm . I do not support this .

  3. Brianna Contreras says:

    I agree Jay Z should continue his plans with Barneys. He should continue his plans because it could help getting more fame. When he partners with Barneys, he should make it so everyone is allowed to shop there without being acused of stealing. The partnership could really make Barneys realize that just because people are African American, it doesnt mean they all steal and are violent, that’s really just a sterotype.

    I don’t agree with Jay Z’s idea of partnering with Barneys. Barneys discriminated againt his race and he shouldnt do buissness with someone who doubts against race. If he partners with Barneys he may lose many of his fans. That’s the problem of partnering with Barneys because if he does he may be losing fans and also gaining some from starting his BNY SCC collection at Barneys. If Jay Z doesnt partner with Barneys he would be missing out on a great deal but it also isnt fair that Barneys discriminates against African Americans.

  4. Carlos Gonzalez says:

    I think Jay Z s hould continue his plans to form a partnership with barneys decause it mite make the owner of Barneys to be less racesitte.
    I think Jay Z should not have a partnership with Barneys because the owner muit disrepathket him for being black.

  5. scottiana garret says:

    I believe Jay Z should continue working with Barneys because he can make money easily for nice clothing and accessories, I think a lot of famous or rich people will come and spend all of their money on all of the nice stuff he has in his store Barneys .

    I believe Jay Z should not continue working with Barneys because he probably will not get a lot of costumers coming to that store cause the clothing and accessories might be to much money ,many people might walk in his store and try to buy something but its to much money so they might decide to boycott or vote to get his store shut down

  6. jaylajackson says:

    you should go on with your store

  7. Thischiktho says:

    I dont really care but jay-Z ur ugly lml

  8. jaylajackson says:

    I believe that jayz should do his clothing line don’t think about what other people think its hat u want to.

    I believe he should not do it because barneys is being racial. He black so they are saying black people can’t buy from the store and that’s not far so I think he should not do it so he don’t need to waste his time.

  9. !!!!! says:

    I believe that Jay-Z should stay with Barneys because he choose to because he might have worked really hard doing this and just saying no and shutting it all down, its like he worked hard for nothing and to just throw it all that money he worked hard all away, that’s just crazy.

    Jay Z should continue his plans to form a partnership with Barneys to launch his BNY SCC collection despite accusations by Blacks that Barneys practical racial profiling, because he can make money by selling his items with Barneys and can get more buisness than if it was just himself.
    Jay Z should not continue his plans to form a partnership with Barneys to launch his BNY SCC collection despite accusations by Blacks that Barneys practical racial profiling because, they might treat him differently because of his difference in race. And, they also might not want to sell thier items to african americans because they are not the same skin color as them and african americans wont want to buy thier stuff because they think .Jay Zhas alot of blacks fans that would wantto buy his stuff and he wont be able to get alot of money because cosstumers wont want too buy thier stuff.

  11. jahzair mcnair says:

    I believe that Jay-Z should continue his plans to form a partnership with Barneys to launch his BNY SCC collection although Barneys has been accused of racial profiling.

    I doubt that Jay-Z should continue his plans to form a partnership with Barneys to launch his BNY SCC collection although Barneys has bee accused of racial profiling. I Doubt that he shouldn’t because he shouldn’t form a partnership that he could use for his BNY and SCC .

    I don’t think Jay-Z should keep his line at Barneys because there just being racist and there just saying that black people cant afford expensive things and there poor.So I think he should it down so there wont be anymore problems.

  13. Constantine Jackson says:

    Believing
    Jay-Z should partner with BNY SCC so he’ll get more money. Also probably make them seem less racist or he’ll actually make them less racist.
    Doubting
    Jay-Z shouldn’t partner with BNY SCC because they may disciminate and start to racial profile him. They treat their customers like that so why would it be different for him.

  14. kyle says:

    Jay-z should not continue his partnership with barney’s because he might be affended by racialy in the furture.

    Jay-z should continue his partnership with barney’s beacause he’ll raise more money for the special
    kids, and I belive that my aunt would have a better education beacause she has down sindrom and I want the best for her life , beacause I want to see the best for her.

    Belive:
    I belive Jay-Z should continue his partnership with Barney because Jazy-Z is getting more attention by news reporters and other people in New York.

    Doubting:
    Jay-z should not continue his partnership with barney because he is getting negative attention from news reporters. Another reason he should stop continue with Barney because he would no longer have the same respect because people are just gonna look at him like another racit person who is just famous. Also another reason he should end his partnership is because his fans won’t like anymore and would forget him.

  16. Victoria Payne says:

    I believe that Jay-Z should contiune with the Barney partnership. Business is business. If he contiunes with the partnership he should try and stop with the racial profiling.
    I doubt Jay-Z with go through with the partnership. This is very bad for publicity. He should just stay focused on his music career.

  17. lytrelllllll says:

    i believe that jay-z should continue his partnership because his money is going to the kids who need it

    i dont believe he should continue his partnership because hes african american himself. so he should be very offended

  18. philmore says:

    philmore adams 11/20/13

    I believing Jay z should do it because he can make more money. he can make more white fans.He is donate to charity.
    I doubting jay z because he will lose fans. he will los alot of money.than the charity place might not get money than the kids are going to starving.

  19. kathy dee says:

    JAY Z SHOULD CONTINUE THE partnership for many reasons. first of all, they have a contract that is meant to begin and end on a certain date. if any one tries to end that contract before hand, that person will most likely have to pay the other person. So if JayZ cancels the contract, he must pay Barneys. also, the mponeyh that willbe made is outrageous. Think of all the poor students that can be helped with the money that will be made from selling JayZ’s new clothing line. So whether out of legal, economic or personal reasons, JayZ should continue his partnership with Barneys. It is a very wealthystore for very wealthypeople. If they spend their big bucks on JayZ, that is more money for the kids.

    I doubt that the partnership between JayZ and Barneys should be dissolved. How can a formerly poor African American man willingly be partners to people who discriminate against people who look like him? If you lie down with dogs — and Barneys is a dog in this case — you get up with fleas. So this association will hurt JayZ,. Maybe the African Americans will boycott his new clothing line. Maybe the KKK will promote Barneys. but whatever, JayZ should make a contrtact with a different store that has no history of racial profiling. Maybe Bendel’s or other store. But definitely NOT with Barney’s. How humiliating and insulting.

  20. munickat says:

    I think that jay-Z should still keep his partner ship with barneys because he is still geting money and he did not do all of that work just to give up. Now just get over it and make this money

    I think that jay-Z should not keep going with barneys becuase even thuogh he still making money what they did was still wrong and if i was jay-Z I would fell some type of way because he is black

  21. Dyasia Vandyke says:

    I believe that Jay-Z should work with barny ‘ s to convince him to make it so that people of any race can feel comfortable and not acused . This would also help Jay-Z come into a lot of money . I feel that Jay-Z should only consider working with barny if the stores ways get changed up .
    However , i do not believe that Jay-Z should be having anything to do the the barny company because , the company goes against his OWN race , which i believe would make him look bad and thats the last thing he needs being that he is a great sucess . I feel that He should only agree to work with Gary if behaviors towards customers are comfortable and respectable .

  22. tierra elting. says:

    Jay – z should keep his business with Barneys because the items coast alot of money but the peolpe willing to pay the amount . But Jay-z is syill making 2x more then he already was i think ? He is now in the millions with this store .
    I doubt that jay-z should keep his business beacause the store is soooo exspective that the black that wanna buy from for the store cant . Because the (OPPS) belivie that they cant afford it and the credit card they are using is no theres . Everytime is happend jay-z is nowhere to be found soo he cant help the person with the (OPPS ) .

  23. lesley cardenas says:

    He should also continue the partnership because the discrimination wasnt caused by the actual workers of Barneys store it was caused by the security gaurds. So i believe that Jay-Z should continue his partnership with Barneys luxury store.

    I doubt that Jay-Z should continue his partner ship with barneys because the store its self was discriminating 2 people and possably more. One person was accused of credit card fraud. Another person was also accused of the same thing credit card fraud.

  24. Karla 8:1E says:

    Karla Santos

    I believe Jay -Z should continue his patnership with Barneys. I believe this because Jay- z could make a huge amount of money/profit since Barneys is such a expensive store.

    I doubt he should continue his pratnership with Barneys because Barneys has been acused of being racist. Besides if he does barneys might not sell Jay-Z’s merchandise at the price he wants them to be sold due to them being racist.Also if he does barney may not allow or sell the merchandise to blacks which would make poeple think that Jay-Z might be on Baarney’s side. 96

    I believe that Jay-z should continue the deal with barney i think it would make alot of money
    and also it would be good for the kids.
    i dont think that Jay-z should work with barney because Jay-z is one of the most big super stars in the industury and Jay-z makes alot of money on his own and has the hottset album out write now and all he has to do is make a hot single and boom thats a hit he doesnt need barney

  26. Kevin'1'E says:

    I Believe that jay-z should launch his BNY SCC Collection at barneys because he would make alot of money AND PEOPLE RESPECT HIM .BUT Anyone would want to buy anything from barney because Anything at barney caust to much.
    I doubt that jay-z should released his BNY SCC collection at barney because they are too exspencive and no one is going too buy a pocet book for 2,000 and another reason why i think jay-z should release his BNY SCC Collection because was accused of racial profliling.AN Lady bought a pocket book from barney and was accused of stealing from racail profiling.

  27. Mzari Evans says:

    I believe that jay-z should launch his BNY SCC Collection because he makes a lot of money, and people look up to him.Kids like Barney,so if Jay-Z is with Barney they will get to know him and like him.Jay-Z And Barney’s clothing line should combine and make a kid clothing line.If there clothing line combines they will mak a huge profit.

  28. taton says:

    BELIEVEING AND DOUBTING
    Jay-Z should continue his partnership with Barneys. He should continue his partnership because it is the best way for him to make money. Also, Barneys isn’t a very bad store otherwise this one incident (that we know about). Jay-Z shouldn’t really worry about the incident, he should just make sure its a one time thing.
    Jay-Z should not continue his partnership with Barneys. I think this because it is way to expensive. He should do something like Nicki Minaj, she created a clothing line at Kmart, a place almost anyone can afford to buy things at. In addition, the store seems to be ‘racist’, considering that a man and woman were discriminated because of there skin color. Nevertheless, even though Barneys may be a great quality store, it has its pros and cons.

  29. vinas says:

    I beieve Jay-Z should continue his partnership with Barneys. I beleive continue his partnership because he can donate the money to the less fortunate that can not afford to help support themselves or family. He can save many lives by doing this. That is why I think Jay-Z should continue his partnership with Barneys.

  30. Yazmine winston says:

    I beleive that Jay-z should continue with his clothing line in Barneys. I think this because he would be helping the children that cant get a education for because they have no money to. I also think this because he could make money selling his clothes in Barneys.

    I think that Jay-z shouldnt continue with his clothing line in Barneys because they are racist. I also think that he should not continue with this because it could ruin his reputation. As you can see in the video it already has caught up to him and he is being judged over him launching a clothing line. 107

  31. Nown 6:7 says:

    i believe that barneys should countinue their collaboration with jay-z it will bring up their rep because they all ready hove a bad one and they could make a lot of money and will get sales.

    i think jayz should not collabarate with barneys becuase they are racist and once they make a certain amount of money they will hurt him and it would be ashame to his race and if his does it shows that he doesnt care about his culture.

  32. Celestine Henry says:

    i think Jay Z shouldn’t contuine his clothing line with Barneys due to the fact that the store is racist, i think this would ruin his reputation. Even though Barney store makes alot of money this store has its pros and cons.

  33. Brianna Contreras says:

    I think Jay Z should just partner with Barneys to make money. It shouldnt matter what other people think.

  34. Christopher Greenland says:

    I believe Jay-Z should continue his partnership with Barneys despite the possible racial profiling. If Jay-Z continues his partnership with Barneys, it could help remove racism against African Americans. It will also help Jay-Z and making him money from selling his merchandise. It could also help spread his music to other areas, allowing him to make a profit.

    I don’t think Jay-Z should continue his partnership with Barneys. Barneys may only want a partnership with Jay-Z because he is black, and could help remove its racist image. Jay-Z will also anger his fans who are against the partnership. Jay-Z will also lose sales because potential customers will avoid Barneys because of the rumors of racial profiling.

  35. Chyenne Fryar says:

    I beleve Jay Z Should continue working with Barneys even though they are racist, because Jay Z Is very big in the music industry. many people like him. So if Jay Z starts selling clothes and accessories many of his fans would buy them. Jay Z qwould make alot of money, and he wont be worried about what other people are thinking cas he gonna be getting his money.

  36. jay jay says:

    8:2 odd

    i believe that he should believe in what he wants to do don’t believe in what other people thinks. go with what u think not with other people think.

  37. Moe says:

    I believe that Jay-z should sell his clothing line BNY SCC at Barnry’s even though they say that the store is race’s because he should be able to make the money that he wants. Barney’s is a store that earns alot of money so if Jay-z puts his clothing line there he will earn alot of money.

  38. xX..Chyenne.. xX says:

    Jay Z should continue his work with Barneys because he got alot of fans so his fans gonna wanna by his stuff. And he gonna be getting alot of money.
