Racial Discrimination Lawsuit Unites Korean and Black Workers

Korea Daily, Posted: Mar 17, 2009

ATLANTA Current and former employees of Kennesaw Public Works department filed a racial discrimination lawsuit in a federal court on March 9 against the city, reports Korea Daily. Gary Redd, a former employee who is Korean, Willie Smith and Stanley Mitchell, who are black, allege in the lawsuit that the use of the N word was routinely used and that the Korean employee was often described as a wetback. They also allege that supervisors not only ignored complaints of workers using racial slurs, but also condoned the slurs, displays of crude images, and threats against workers. Smith claims he was discouraged from applying for a promotion because hes black. All defendants -- the mayor, city manager, human resources director, a city councilman and four others -- are white. Kennesaw is a suburb about 23 miles northwest of Atlanta.
