If you thought segregation was a thing of the past, think again.
In an incident that harkens back to the era of slavery, two black men who worked at Atkinson Cotton Warehouse in Memphis have filed a federal complaint with their former boss — a white man — for discrimination. It’s the latest eye-opening racist controversy to go public in recent days.
Antonio Harris and Marrio Mangrum say the man called them “monkeys,” refused to let them use a water fountain and microwave and ordered them to “kiss his white tail.”
They even captured some of the racist remarks on tape, some of which you can hear in the video above.
The supervisor still works with the company.
