Skip to comments.Lawsuit claims GM plant had nooses, 'whites only' signs and managers did not stop racism

It took 14 months for the noose to show up.
Fourteen months where Marcus Boyd says he endured racist comments, slights, even threats in a hostile workplace run by General Motors.
A workplace where people declared bathrooms were for "whites only," where black supervisors were denounced as "boy" and ignored by their subordinates, where black employees were called "monkey," or told to "go back to Africa."
A workplace where black employees were warned a white colleague's "daddy" was in the Ku Klux Klan. Where white workers wore shirts with Nazi symbols underneath their coveralls.
All those allegations are detailed in a lawsuit filed against GM in which eight workers say managers at the Toledo Powertrain plant did little or nothing to stop racism.
For Boyd, it began on his first day. He said he could feel the glare from white team members as if they were saying, "Who's he to be in charge of them?"
And then Brooks found a noose hanging in the area where he worked. As the only black employee in that space on his shift, he believed it was aimed to intimidate him.
It was a breaking point, the beginning of the end of his career -- and that of Boyd -- at GM. Not just because the noose had been hung. But because of how GM allegedly reacted.
That first noose, and then a second, then third, fourth and fifth were all reported to GM, according to the lawsuit Boyd and eight other black employees have filed against the company for allowing an "underlying atmosphere of violent racial hate and bullying."

Wow, if this is true, then yes, that is really beyond the pale.
Thinking the same thing. Why not sue the Union? they run the place
As sick as many white people are of the clown world we live in, these allegations are filed under Stuff That Never Happened. The KKK in the real world consists only of a handful of federal agents. The Hollywood version is quite powerful.
Probably another hoax. The story has too many parts to it that would have ended up on You Tube.
To say that another way - pictures or it didn’t happen.
If I started work someplace and it was anti-white racism (actual...racism) I don’t think I’d hang around for 14 months.
I’d take pictures and ensure that everyone knew about them, at a minimum.
If (and given all the fake racism stories in recent memory, a BIG IF) this is true, to hell with everyone involved.
Sure is a perfect “white racism” scenario.
Couldn’t be better if it were staged.
That should give you a hint.
Some New York ad guy’s idea for viral marketing to flyover country?
Or just another round of Fake Hate?
Bull S. It is almost on...
Let me guess. All were Trump voters.
Color me skeptical
With so many hoaxes out there, it makes you wonder how much might have been hoaxed, to increase potential payout.
Nazis erased it. Or, was it hildabeast’s cleaning crew.
I bet he wasn’t breaking 6 times a day for prayers like everyone else.
Does anybody here know how to spell hoax? I need to use the word hoax in a sentence
if true, there’s about an 80-90% chance they were put there by a democrat voting union thug
Hoax is spelled “fake news.”
I just don’t believe this. Does not ring true.
