Youths Protest "Racial Profiling" At Aurora Mall

March 28, 2007


Activists and local youth say they're fed up with racial profiling at the Aurora Mall, and they're calling on the City of Aurora to hold hearings on the allegations. A lawyer for the mall's owner, Simon Property Group, has said it takes the charges seriously and is conducting an internal review of its policies. Jamal Miller is a 20-year-old African-American man and community organizer with the Colorado Progressive Coalition who says he and many other young Latinos and African-Americans experience discrimination at the local mall on a regular basis.

"[I experienced] being followed, or if I was to walk with my friends, they say we have to break up and we can't be in a group more than four or five."

Miller would like to see better training for mall security and volunteers. He and other Aurora youth say their city has given tax breaks to a company that discriminates against them.

"For us to give them a $15 million tax break and then for them to profile, I mean, I'm upset with it."

Miller believes part of the problem stems from the mall's dress code, which he says targets minority youth. The mall's owner, Simon Property Group, has said it will not tolerate discriminatory behavior by its contractors or employees and is conducting an internal review.
