EEOC sues Sutter Transfer Service for racial harassment

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a racial harassment lawsuit against Yuba City, California company Sutter Transfer Service.

According to the EEOC, Lonnie Winstead was subjected to a hostile work environment by his dispatcher, who frequently called him racial slurs like “coon,” “gorilla,” “porch monkey,” and “n—-r.”

Winstead said, “I just wanted to do my job, but I had to listen to these racist comments almost every day from the person who gave us our work dispatch. As the only black truck driver at Sutter, I was mortified to hear these stereotypes.  It hurt.”
