Workers who are black are accusing a cotton gin supervisor who is white of grotesque racist harassment that's hard to believe is happening in 21st century America. One of the workers used his phone to record audio and video of the supervisor's shocking comments, and that footage is below.
Antonio Harris and Marrio Mangrum say their supervisor referred to them as “monkeys,” and said a water fountain and microwave at the plant were for whites only. “He pulled his pants down in front of us and told us to kiss his white tail,” Harris told a local news reporter.
“Put your sign on the wall then, because I am feeling to drink it,” said Harris. “What would they do when they catch me drinking your water?”
“That`s when we hang you,” said the supervisor.
[...] We called the warehouse, and a worker tells us that supervisor still works there but is on vacation.
Welcome to post-racial America!

But how do you make sure stuff gets done? You definitely can’t do all the stuff yourself, unless your company/organization/government office consists entirely of you. And […]
Even the most expensive pair of hi-fi headphones can’t match the feeling of bass rumbling through your body at a live show. That’s why music aficionados designed The Basslet, an accessory that reproduces that sensation from your wrist. Does it make your whole body shake with deep subs?
