WASHINGTON A former District of Columbia official brought in to help straighten out mismanagement at the Department of Public Works is suing the city, claiming he was harassed, intimidated and then fired for being white.
The former city worker says he was repeatedly called cracker and white boy by black members of the department while in the presence of other managers. On his last day on the job as a deputy fleet administrator, Christopher Lyons said he found a sign on his door that said, Get Out White Boy!
Lyons is suing the city for wrongful termination, claiming he was the victim of racial discrimination. He also believes he was targeted because he uncovered financial flaws and reported cover-ups. Hes suing his former employers for back pay and then some.
I am surprised [the racial discrimination] happened at this level of government, his lawyer Morris Fischer told FoxNews.com. Were all Americans. We all have to treat each other the same, and we have to put aside whatever differences we have.

Open season on whitey, and it’s just going to get worse.
I’ve never seen a white person in DC city government.
Do they exist?
I hope he has documented the accusations he is making. Otherwise he is toast. Come to think of it he is probably toast anyway. Fort Marcy Park is a big place.
You can’t discriminate against white people.
Didn’t you learn anything from the “Beat Whitey Night” non-hate crime? :)
Open season on whitey, and its just going to get worse.
Exactly how “my people” felt after the revocation of the Edict Of Nantes.
Reparations for Huguenots now!
He must have been an affirmative action hire.
I tell the French that all that time, it upsets them
Which of course is the point....:^)
PRIVLAGED WHITE LIVES MATTER!!!!
This stuff cracks me up. LOL
“he was repeatedly called cracker and white boy by black members of the department.”
Sorry, Mr. Lyons. Those epithets don’t fall under the same category of really racist sayings like “niggardly.”
that is a different C word that I heard was off limit....
Tears in “Chocolate City”
You only got half of the equation. The other half is that it is impossible for blacks to be racist. Throw this cracka's case out.
This won’t gain any traction. White boys are not a protected class.
Sue their melanin-enhanced posteriors off!
Can’t this racist that by suing he is just expressing his white privilege?
Cell phone vids and/or snaps, plus voice recording devices are your friends.
“mismanagement at the Department of Public Works”
I can see how a white crackuh coming in to clean up corruption and mismanagement in DC would cause problems. After the blacks won control of the city their battle cry was “now it’s our turn.” St. Barry was corrupt through and through, a crackhead, and hired prostitutes and he STILL won re-election.
Affirmative sir. It will get a WHOLE lot worse.
