This article on The Daily Beast, by Rawiya Kameir, discusses how Jay Z's business side has led to him appearing not trustworthy.
Last fall, critics and fans wanted to see Jay Z take a principled stance by publicly condemning Barney's for its proven track record of racially profiling black customers; instead, he moved to donate 100 percent, rather than the original 25 percent, of his capsule line's revenue to charity.
