At least three Iranians set themselves on fire Wednesday after the agency led a massive raid on Tuesday on the offices of an Iranian opposition group, The People's Mujahedeen of Iran. The protest was the latest in a series of dramatic protests in Europe against Tuesday's crackdown on the Mujahedeen Khalq, which is listed as a terrorist organization by the United States and the European Union.

The company is again in trouble with minorities. A federal lawsuit filed Monday June 16, 2003, in San Francisco, charged that clothing retailer hires a disproportionately white sales force, puts minorities in less-visible jobs and cultivates a virtually all-white image in its catalogues and elsewhere. The company removed shirts from its stores last spring.

A federal lawsuit filed Monday June 16, 2003, in San Francisco, charged that clothing retailer... cultivates a virtually all-white image in its catalogues and elsewhere.

Yes - hiring discrimination on the basis of race is grounds for a lawsuit. Welcome to the 21st century. As far as your NAACP question - who knows? Give it a shot. Go ahead and sue them. I bet they have already done their homework and have a lot of white folks working there.
