A California woman says she is suing Walmart for discrimination after saying that the mega retailer locked its African-American hair and skin products behind glass at a California store. Moreover, the woman said, she was walked to a register by an employee to pay for her products once she chose them. Famed attorney Gloria Allred held a news conference saying she was representing Essie Grundy of Perris, Calif. Grundy said she went into a Walmart on Jan. 12 to buy beauty products and saw that the black beauty items were locked behind glass. Grundy said she complained to the employee, who agreed with her, and said she also complained about the policy. Said employee allegedly told her that the move was a directive from corporate.
