Retailer Abercrombie & Fitch is in the news again for possible racial discrimination. The Post: "Former Abercrombie saleswoman Dulzia Burchette, who is black, claims she was fired from the clothier's Fifth Avenue store after a white supervisor demanded she remove blond highlights from her hair. When Burchette asked if she could instead go all-blond, the supervisor allegedly told her, 'You can't have blond hair. It is not natural.'" [NYP]
