Mercedes dealership ex-employee alleges racial harassment

Garland Latta, 41, who is black, filed a lawsuit against Mercedes-Benz of Anaheim after he was subjected to workplace bullying on the part of his coworkers and managers.  Latta began working at the dealership in November 2008, and he alleges that the first incident of racial harassment occurred one month later.

According to the lawsuit, Latta was called a “monkey” and was told, “You eat like a (n-word).”  Despite the fact that Latta complained to managers about the harassment and hostile work environment, they refused to discipline the employees who bullied Latta.  In one instance, a manager responded by telling Latta, “You brought this on yourself.  Should everyone watch what they say around you?”
