A black former employee with the Hempstead Highway Department claims in a new lawsuit that he was fired for complaining about his racist co-workers.

Jimmie Howard, who now works for the Nassau County town’s parks department, claims in the Brooklyn federal suit that his boss called him a “monkey” and other co-workers hung a “tarred stuffed animal” from a noose.

The incidents began in 2007, and when he complained, he was told the superior “didn’t take medication” and went unpunished, according to the suit.

Howard claims he was intentionally assigned the worst jobs — such as scraping dead animals off roads — and penalized when white employees stole his truck.

The racism came to a head in late April 2014, the suit says, when a colleague asked if Howard had seen his “baby picture on the wall.”

He soon discovered “a newspaper clipping of a baby gorilla with the caption ‘Jimmy’s baby photo’ ” the complaint reads.

Hempstead’s Law Department could not be immediately reached for comment.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
