CORDOVA, Tenn. — Protesters targeted the Wolfchase Galleria on Saturday for its recent history of what they say are “racist policies and profiling.”
Many spoke out against the Cordova mall’s code of conduct policy, which they said targets customers wearing hoodies while inside.
One of the people involved posted pictures of the banners hung inside the mall. That person also shared a video of balloons, carrying a sign demanding that mall officials stop their “racist policies and profiling.”

In November, three African-American men were escorted out of the mall because they were wearing hoodies that cover their face, which is a public safety concern.
Officials told FOX13 that none of the protesters were arrested Saturday, and that they are open to meeting with community leaders.
