Default Trump hotel employees called black worker ‘monkey’: suit


Trump hotel employees called black worker ‘monkey’: suit

Employees at the Trump Soho hotel — when it was still partly owned by the president — called a black co-worker a “monkey” and threatened her with a boxcutter, according to a 2014 lawsuit reinstated by a Manhattan appeals court.

Shakera Gordon sued Trump Soho, charging that a hotel engineer grabbed her hair, yanked her head back and put a boxcutter to her neck on Feb. 14, 2012.

She got a restraining order, but he was only reprimanded because he is white, her suit says.

Another co-worker, “would call me ‘monkey’ on a regular basis,” Gordon recalls in court papers.

The Trump Organization sold its stake in the hotel last year and is not named as a defendant.

But Gordon’s lawyer, Leopoldo Raic, says Trump “allowed his name and likeness to be used at an establishment where employees were engaged in discrimination.”

An appeals court revived Gordon’s claim Thursday finding that she provided evidence that shows she may have been treated unfairly because of her race.

Lawyers for the hotel and the Trump Organization did not return messages.
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.
