Despite the fact that Shawn Carter a.k.a: Jay Z was under intense fan scrutiny to discontinue business with luxury retailer: Barneys back in October 2013-when it was alleged that two black shoppers were racially profiled; Jay Z’s decision to stick to the business at hand will most certainly help some hands.
It’s a little egalitarianism: Regardless your personal feelings about an issue at hand, what’s for the greater good of a situation should always trump a feeling or reaction [about an issue-regardless].
However, the situation did not go unchecked.
Jay Z’s decision to move forward with his business involving the high-end retailer was done with his working with the bosses at the New York store on improving their security procedures to ensure that all customers would be treated fairly while shopping (or even window shopping on the inside)…
The decision to stick to the business at hand has certainly proved to be a lucrative one, even in such a short amount of time.
According to New York Daily News, Mr. Carter has raised over $1 million dollars for his Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.
The move makes manifest another line out of the rappers extensive catalog of song lyrics:
“I’m not a businessman. I am BUSINESS, man.”
