A black man in New Jersey has filed a lawsuit against his former employer, Benjamin Moore Paints, which he says named one of its paint colors after him and then fired him when he complained.
His suit accuses Benjamin Moore of discrimination, a hostile work environment, and retaliation and seeks compensatory and punitive damages.
The 34 year-old Tucker, who had nine years of work experience in online retail marketing, also says that the company denied him promotions and opportunities for growth while promoting whites.
His boss ignored an email Tucker sent requesting to be able to take off work to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the suit claims.
On its website, Benjamin Moore describes “Tucker Chocolate” as “capturing the 1798 color requested by St. George Tucker for his home facing Courthouse Green, this deep brown is classic and understated.”
So this guy gets fired after three years and then decides to sue for discrimination ?
This company has 3400 different colors- I am certain the company did not just decide to name colors after an employee who had only a couple years service. The company I work for does not know I am Catholic, so how come they know he is a fag unless he made an issue out of it ?
I worked with a black kid once who said he did not have to help because he was black and they would do nothing to him, that was just before they fired him for insubordination when he was slacking and told the manager, "What are you going to do about it ?" I have also worked with trouble making fags who thought everyone wanted to just sit around and hear about how cute butts are.
