So NASCAR might not provide the most comfortable work atmosphere for black female employees? Would you have ever guessed that?
According to a former NASCAR official, Mauricia Grant, the organization pretty much fulfills that stereotype. Grant says she was fired after she complained to superiors about racial and sexual harassment she was experiencing on the job. In a lawsuit, Grant “allege[d] that she was called a series of degrading names (such as “Nappy Headed Mo,” “Queen Sheba,” and “Simpleton”) and subjected to racist stereotypes, such as being told she worked “on Colored People Time” if she arrived late.” At the time she was hired, she was the only black female official at NASCAR. She’s suing for $225 million.
