Sadly, even in 2014 discrimination and racism is alive and happening whether you realize it or not. Whatever happened to living by the golden rule, “If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it at all”? A blatant disregard for the old adage got noted fashion house Louis Vuitton sued for racial discrimination and harassment.
Apparently, a senior level employee of luxury label, Louis Vuitton at the London Selfridges store felt the opposite as he allegedly communicated to an African employee, Oliver Koffi: “Black people are slaves who eat dirt off the floor.”
Louis Vuitton is now feeling the pressure as Koffi is suing the company, saying, “This comment was grossly offensive and extremely humiliating”.
Without a doubt it’s embarrassing and offensive that this derogatory rant even occurred. First Donald Sterling and now this? When will people learn?
