Boeing is facing a federal lawsuit from a Black employee who claims he was repeatedly racially discriminated against at a North Charleston, South Carolina plant. Curtis Anthony said he found a noose hanging over his desk and that his white colleagues have allegedly urinated there several times.
In a June 7 lawsuit, the quality inspector said that he was a “victim to targeted racial harassment of an intentionally extreme and outrageous nature.” That harassment included his white coworkers regularly using the n-word and urinating on his desk and seat beginning in 2017, NBC News reported.
Anthony, who has worked for Boeing as a quality inspector since 2011, also claimed that racial placards were placed by his work station with the n-word. The 57-year-old said he immediately reported the harassment to management. In response, the plane manufacturer replaced Anthony’s desk and chair, his attorney Donald Gist told NBC News.
