The Reverend Al Sharpton and other civil rights leaders in New York on Monday threatened a holiday season shopping boycott after meeting with Macy's Chairman Terry Lundgren to discuss accusations of racial profiling of shoppers. Sharpton, who held a similar private meeting last week with the chief executive of upscale retailer Barneys New York, set Wednesday as the deadline for Macy's to submit a written plan to prevent the kind of discrimination alleged by two black shoppers last month.
