Marcus Bradley has always done an excellent job. Nonetheless, his employer let him fail by supporting a claim over his skin tone.
All are aware that racism is a huge issue in America. You’d have to be extremely deafening to not understand that. However, one of the few good outcomes of the latest happenings is that more American businesses and groups than ever before are issuing comments condemning bigotry.
However, this example demonstrates that American firms still have a long way to go in terms of respecting all of their employees fairly.
Marcus Bradley has been a delivery driver for the hardware store Lowe’s in Danville, Virginia for over a decade. However, when a client objected to him, Lowe’s answer caused him to reconsider his job.
Most of the Lowe’s customers Bradley travelled to had positive experiences, with Bradley cheerfully handing off their products.
But, one day he delivered a truckload of products and had to return to the store to complete the transaction. However, he would not be permitted to finish his work.
Bradley got a call from his supervisor while driving to pick up the rest of the order. The employer informed him that he could not come home. Bradley, perplexed, inquired as to why. He was taken aback by the answer.
Marcus Bardley continues that he inquired as to why he couldn’t do it. Because he is black, and they don’t want him in the house.
Alex Brooke, Bradley’s coworker, was in the delivery truck when he received the news. Brooke was also shocked.
More than the customer complaint, he was enraged that the Lowe’s management had pushed through on and implemented a discriminatory demand.
Alex Brooke’s siad that to him, it just ain’t fair for a business like this to carry on with the woman’s wishes.
Bradley and Brooke went back to the store and reported to their boss. But they wouldn’t listen. Rather, the management had a white delivery driver substitute for Bradley.
Brooke would not stand for it. He stood firm and declined to return to the house without Bradley. As a result, the management dispatched two separate delivery drivers and chastised Brooke.
Bradley was furious at how he had been handled. He had earlier imagined that his employer would defend him against racism. But he knew the truth now.
The event was then examined by a local news crew. They spoke with the woman who protested about Bradley. She made no apologies for discriminating against him.
The news team also stated that “someone is now out of a job” as a result of the manner the media handled the bigoted request. That assertion, however, is ambiguous.
Lowe’s must clearly communicate to its management and other workers that they cannot tolerate racism.
Yes, it’s unfortunate that such bigoted demands were made in the first place. However, it would have been preferable if Lowe’s had openly stated to the management that racism would not be tolerated. Lets hope, the corporation will learn from this despicable series of incidents.
