The Atlanta Hawks have been accused by a former employee of discriminating against whites in the workplace and creating a culture where white employees aren’t afforded the same opportunities as other races.
Via the The Atlanta Journal Constitution:
Kline claims that the Hawks external affairs director David Lee, who is black, promoted a culture of discrimination against white people, especially white women.
Kline alleges that Lee was dismissive and exclusionary toward white employees and would often make jokes about “white culture,” hiring and promoting black employees — who Kline said were less qualified — over white people, according to the lawsuit.
Kline said the organization ignored her complaints and instead unfairly scrutinized her work and impeded her ability to do her job, often gossiping and ridiculing her. The lawsuit also alleges white coworkers were told not to speak with Kline or they could lose their job.
Kline was fired by the Hawks in March 2017 and is asking for punitive damages and a trial jury in her lawsuit.
He’s got some African in him. And I don’t say that in a bad way, other than he’s a guy that may make side deals behind you, if that makes sense. Like he has a storefront out front that’s beautiful and great, but he is maybe selling some counterfeit stuff behind you.
This is absolutely ridiculous, we know she’s looking for a payday, but cmon, seriously?!
