Former FSU RB James Wilder Jr. Claims Racism After Being Kicked Out Of 'Toys 'R' Us'

Former Florida State star running back James Wilder Jr. is apparently doing some holiday shopping Monday afternoon, but things aren't going very smoothly. Wilder, who is currently a member of the Cincinnati Bengals' practice squad, claims that he was treated unfairly at a Toys 'R' Us in Florence, Kentucky. 

Wilder claims that the manager, who he names on Twitter, accused him of stealing. He claims that four white police officers were called to come in and kick him out of the store. He accused the manager of racial profiling, adding that he hadn't been in the store five minutes before he was told he was "disturbing" customers.
