First I want to say Congrats to the brother... Second, you are wrong 1134, PPPL can sue for discrimination... however, they have been programmed into thinking they can't.

Just like they have been programmed to hate, thinking the majority of blacks are on welfare, white is right. The list is endless.

Again, congrats to the brother... they (lockheed martin) lucky I was not siting on the jury... they wouldhave been paying the 2.5 mill for punitive only... notto mention compensatory. BTW, Happy New Years to you 1134, you old filthy animal (lol).

As it should be! If whomever is STILL ignorant, backwoods,hateful, uneducated, and STUPID enough to continue to call black people this offensive word,(AND AT THE WORKPLACE AT THAT!) then black people DESERVE EVERY penny! Keep that crap amoung yourselves. You know, when you're sitting around the trailer, downing cases upon cases of Bud Lights!

I cannot believe that this is still tolerated and accepted in 2007-1999.

We all need diversity training.

God Bless you Son and Lockheed, you need to offer diversity training.

There is some good in you, you know. My reason for saying that is... at least you referred to the complainant as a man... but, you are demonstrating typical bevavior by PPPL

They almost always never see the wrong when they hurt others... sometimes including their own. But, it's all good... this brother don't mind being call "the N" word now... he's smiling all the way to the bank.

Because blacks don't really use a lot of racist terms compared to some of you white people. You would never see a black owner kick a white people out becuase it was to many of you. Now if it is a lot of black people in a white store the blacks would get kicked out. How I know it happen to us in 5 points the Exxon at the bottom of the hill.

The guy must have been doing something to get called that. How is it he was called that at 4 different places? Why are there not more people suing? I am sure he was not the only black working for them.
