Abercrombie and Fitch has been sued for racial discrimination in their hiring practices:
“According to the lawsuit, which is seeking class certification, the company has a policy that requires all sales people to exhibit an all-white “A&F look.” Posters and a television program in stores display models who are mostly white, as does the company’s catalogue, the lawsuit alleges. The company also encourages recruitment from overwhelmingly white fraternities and sororities, it says.

Abercrombie refuses to hire qualified minority applicants to work on the sales floor, the suit alleges. When it does hire minorities, it channels them to stock room and overnight shifts and reduces their hours, it says.”
