Target Gets Sued For Racist Memo
The superstore is currently facing a lawsuit.
Three former Target employees are suing Target for discrimination displayed in a racist memo.
According to reports
, Target handed out a document with “Multi-Cultural Tips,” which listed suggestions on how to manage Latino employees.
The lawsuit cites the memo to include the following stereotypes:
a. Food: not everyone eats tacos and burritos;
b. Music: not everyone dances to salsa;
c. Dress: not everyone wears a sombrero;
d. Mexicans (lower education level, some may be undocumented);
e. Cubans (Political refugees, legal status, higher education level); and
f. They may say 'OK, OK' and pretend to understand, when they do not, just to save face.
