One Mercedes-Benz Car dealership is being accused of racism – and the victim is literally hoping to get them to pay. Jeffrey Turner is suing an Indiana Mercedes-Benz location for subjecting him to a “hostile work environment” and firing him after he reported racist behavior, reported the Jacksonville Free Press.
A former sales manager at the dealership, Turner said the dealer’s owner Mike Raisor used the N-word “like, 6 or 7 times.” In a press release, his attorney said, “His race was a regular subject of unwelcome verbal harassment, being referred to as the ‘favorite n—-r … He was also a target for anger over unrelated racial issues.”
