The news is out: [McDonald’s is facing a new lawsuit from Black former franchisees who say they faced decades of discrimination at the fast-food chain.
A complaint filed by 52 former franchisees on Tuesday in the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois is seeking more than $1 billion, collectively, in direct damages from McDonald’s.
Franchisees in the complaint said they faced “systematic and covert racial discrimination,” with the company denying them the same opportunities as their white counterparts. McDonald’s has to approve all new franchisees, and the lawsuit argues it “systematically steered” Black franchisees to buy locations in Black neighborhoods. These locations tend to have higher insurance and security costs while bringing in less revenue.
One franchisee said in the complaint that Black franchisees were at such a significant disadvantage that acquiring McDonald’s locations as a Black franchisee was a “financial suicide mission.”]
I remember being turned down for jobs because I was “over-qualified”; in other words they didn’t hire negroes.
The entire country is founded on racism; every mid/big business or corporation made it while firmly promoting racist policies. The western society must be sanitized.
