CHICAGO (CBS) – A 22-year-old African American woman and her lawyer are threatening a lawsuit and boycott against Culver’s after a coworker created and left a discriminatory figure at the establishment.
Last month, Diamond Williams arrived for work at Culver’s in Orland Park, WBBM’s Steve Miller reports, to find a racist diagram depicting a burning cross and Ku Klux Klansmen. The image was made from drinking straws and upside-down white cups.
“I just feel like whoever did this was racist,” Williams said. “Where I come from – my community and my people – we’ve been through stuff like this. So it’s got a lot of meaning behind it.”
