Nike workers used racial slurs

Be careful the next time you shop at a Nike store, you may hear a racist remark. Today Nike settled a racism lawsuit for $7.6 million. Quoted from the article:

"The lawsuit, filed in 2003, claimed managers at the retail store used racial slurs to refer to black workers and customers. They also said the store segregated black employees into lower-paying jobs as stockroom workers and cashiers rather than giving them lucrative sales jobs. And they alleged managers made unfounded accusations of theft against black workers and directed store security to monitor black employees and customers because of their race."
