Black workers at Kansas City hospital were called 'boy' and 'Aunt Jemima': lawsuit

Trevor Baston says he watched a white employee at St. Luke's Hospital call a black co-worker "Aunt Jemima." The same person repeatedly called Baston, who is black, "boy." A nurse practitioner told him she was afraid of "big black men." Then, after a bias training, his supervisor's manager told staff to "get over it."

Oh dear god, that’s not true, those people will lie about anything to try and get an easy payday.

Notice that White people are never called anything or treated poorly. When was the last time you read an article where a White person was able to say they were treated badly by others ?

^^^Discrimination lawsuits are no longer easy paydays. Republican lawmakers in Missouri changed the laws to make it harder to prove discrimination. The fact that an attorney took the case tells me that there is some substance to the complaint. The question for me is whether this is rogue employees doing this or is it systematic racism across the organization. If the later exists, Im glad to see someone challenging them for illegal activity.

Well if it were at the City, the law department would be running all each other to settle, like the City ALWAYS does, just part of the retirement system for some folks!
