If they stop hiring them they won't be able to file lawsuits.

maybe it is time for the CEO to get off his duff and install hi-tech camera's around these plants and catch the people that are doing these crimes. It is more than likely someone trying to get attention and wanting to file lawsuits.

If people who don't even live here, apparently black by the photo, would quit trying to cause trouble, then yes you will have a job. It's not him that will be out of work for stiring shit up, it's good people here in town that will lose. When jobs are lost at a factory then jobs are lost in supporting areas such as stores, where you eat, etc. Why doesn't he cause troble in Houston? BECAUSE he'd wind up as fish bait in the Houston channel!

According to the article they WERE protesting in Houston. They weren't here trying to cause TROBLE.

The Paris blacks who filed the lawsuit got paid. Blacks at other plans want their money, too. Always follow the money.

All outside industries had better think twice before setting up business in Paris. Whites in Paris still don't see anything wrong with the noose, the n word, racist graffiti and mistreatment of blacks at Turner. Since there was a citywide claim by the mayor, city council, Lamar County Commissioners and Chuck Superville that none of that was racist, they haven't learned a thing. Until they learn, racism will continue to be the main news regarding Paris Texas, at least in national news.

Those were employees who work for Turner in the Houston area you idiot. Whites being racist caused the trouble. They filed a lawsuit the same time Paris workers did.

Black people don't have to plant racism in order to have a discrimination lawsuit. Whites are more than willing to supply all the racism and discrimination they need to push a lawsuit forward. Turner in Paris is being sued again and it partially your city officials and diversity task force's fault. They're going to learn that by trying to blame the victim or trying to hide the problem, it encourages people to continue with the problem. The city of Paris has a high tolerance for discrimination.

By reading your post, you better hope you have a job there. Don't think the other company wants to deal with the problem!

No, blacks lying is what caused the problem and the obama loving EEOC that couldn't investigate itself out of a paper bag. The EEOC can even see the stupidity involved with this latest tripe. Turner has filed suit against the ambulance chaser and we are all hoping they will file against the slander and libel from some of the others. I did hear a rumor that they are going after old carl for running his mouth and showing off his little check. That was against the rules and he is stupid enough to think he is above the rules or like crow, doesn't have to follow any rules because she is black. Surprise!! Ain't gonna work this time around. Folks, when are you going to tar and feather this idiot and get her out of town?

LOL. Its my fault. Its Carls fault. Its the EEOCs fault. Its president Obamas fault. Its everyones fault but the people who discriminated. Turner can file against anyone they want to but its not going to do any good.

you are terribly wrong! Most white and black Parisians believe in eqality, and time after time I see White people and some black people helping BLACKS. there may be a handful of white rednecks and a few black racist that is going to cost all the Turner employees their jobs. JC, you hate Paris and are trying to take it down. instead of complaining, what have you done to Help Paris become a better place for all of us. do you love America, Texas, and Paris? if you do please help heal the hate and promote that we all get along. If you don't, IMO you should be tried for treason. If you were in the trenches in war, your white brother fighting with you wouldn't seem so bad. or would you shoot him and join the other side? Please tell me one good thing about you, so that I can have hope.

People who discriminate need to start accepting responsibility for their actions. Stop blaming black people for that noose and racist graffiti. Did black racists make Turner have lower pay rates for black employees? Theres some things I love about America and Texas and theres some things I hate about it.Do you love everything about Texas? Black people have been told to stop complaining about racism and just love white people and just get along since they were slaves. You want black people to get along with racism and discrimination. Hell no. I wouldn't travel to other countries to be in the trenches in war killing people who I don't even know and who haven't done anything to me. You like submissiveness and butt kissing in black people. Thats not me so I guess I'll remain hopelsss in your opinion. But I'm ok with that. You still have Buck Cooper, Robert High, Marva Joe, Althea Dixon and the likes. They should bring you hope.

You whites are very stupid. Now, look what you have done. You have the whole state of Texas Black Turner employees on your ass now. Not just old Carl, anymore. I'm waiting to see how this plays out. Whitie still thinking he can "Bamboozal" the Blacks of this county. You still haven't realized yet, that the Blacks, out-think you whites by 3 to 1. You forgot their Black president is very smart and has out-thought the white republicans the very same "unique" way. You must remember that the Blacks gave birth to whites through mutation and albinism. So, the children (whites) never out-thinks the parents (Blacks). The parents may let the children get away with certain things, but that doesn't mean they out-thinks them.
