A black employee at Tesla's California gigafactory claims he was called the N-word 'approximately 100 times' and saw swastikas and KKK signs plastered over the bathroom as the company faces a major racism lawsuit.
Aaron Craven's sworn declaration is among 100 others from fellow staff members claiming Elon Musk's electric car giant discriminates against black people and has created a toxic atmosphere at its main factory in Fremont.
'I was directly called ''n*****' approximately 100 times at the Fremont factory,' Craven said in a sworn statement filed to Alameda County Superior Court, which has been seen by Dailymail.com.
Craven has since left the car giant.
Another plaintiff, ex-contractor Aaron Minor, said he heard Tesla employees describing the factory as 'the Plantation' and its black employees as 'cotton workers'

I actually believe the other plaintiff who heard his friends and co-workers of color refer to the factories and themselves in that manner.
I just plain doubt it.
This has Jesse Smollet written all over it.
No pictures of said swastikas and the like in the article? Are phones not allowed on the premises?
is this his first complaint?
Jussy Swallow says, “Hey, you’re workin’ my corner. Hit the bricks, kid!”.
Why do I get the impression this guys is a complete jerk.
no way this happened anywhere on planet earth. No possible way.
#CalledMeTheN-Word is the new #metoo. guilt by accusation, guilty until proven guiltily, death my media execution.
‘I was directly called ‘’n*****’ approximately 100 times at the Fremont factory,’
Maybe that was someone playing their favorite rap station, Aaron.
I smell an attempt to set up a major payday.
If any white person called him that he would have assaulted them right there.
I dont believe it for a second.
A decade ago I would have cared.
A year ago I might have cared.
But you broke me.
And I do not care.
I have not read the 500 page complaint, but I wonder if they mentioned the Racist Robots too I mean there are lots of them at the Tesla factory ?
what a liar
He may have been called the N word by fellow blacks.
NO WAY was he called the N word by whites. This is not the South in the 1930s.
Dude is looking for a big, big pay out.
Hoax. And lots of people call their boss a "slave driver" or work "the plantation". It has nothing to do with race.
Yeah. I know it’s bad. I always feel the need to write KKK stuff on the walls every time I go to the bathroom. I’m sure we all do. It’s kinda hard, you know, being all the time racists and everything. All my white buddies are the same, so I know I’m no different than the guys here. Also, as a kid growing up in the South, we all the time played dress up with momma’s and daddy’s KKK suits until we were old enough to get our own for real. That was usually the big Christmas present under the tree. Momma and daddy were so proud when we got all dressed up for pictures with our KKK suits on. Down South you know. Of course we’re all racists here.
I mean if a black dude is called the N word ONCE, he will first punch the guy. Then he would have filed a complaint.
This dude waited a 100 times before he filed a complaint??
He’s a liar Jim.
