Mexicans Suing Target Because Their Boss Put A Manual On How All Mexicans Aren't Stereotypes

Earns Target

Courthouse News- Target’s offensive “multi-cultural tips” for managers inform bosses that not all Hispanic employees eat tacos, dance to salsa or wear sombreros, former employees say in Superior Court. Robert Gonzalez, Bulmaro Fabian and Pedro Garcia-Ayala sued Target Corp. in Yolo County Court. They claim they suffered crude harassment, discrimination and retaliation at work, and that Target’s tips for managers are offensive in themselves. “Target provided its distribution warehouse managers a document titled, ‘Organization Effectiveness, Employee and Labor Relations Multi-Cultural Tips,'” the complaint states. “This document instructs managers to note differences among Hispanic employees, and states the following:
“a. Food: not everyone eats tacos and burritos;
“b. Music: not everyone dances to salsa;
“c. Dress: not everyone wears a sombrero;
“d. Mexicans (lower education level, some may be undocumented);
“e. Cubans (Political refugees, legal status, higher education level); and
“f. They may say ‘OK, OK’ and pretend to understand, when they do not, just to save face.”

The plaintiffs claim that nearly all the management positions were held by Caucasians, who regularly used racial slurs while addressing Hispanic employees, such as “Only a ‘wetback’ can work this hard,” “You got to be Mexican to work like this,” and “What the hell, I’m already sweating like a Mexican,” the employees say in the complaint.

 

 

How fucking tough do racists have it these days? Classic damned if you do damned if you don’t situation. You either are racist for not promoting cultural awareness and educating your employees or you’re racist for telling them how Mexicans are dumber than Cubans and that most hispanics say “Ok, ok” even though they can’t understand one word of English.

 

Your boss is saying exactly what you want him to say, not all Mexicans eat burritos and wear sombreros, even though they secretly do. He’s saving face for you guys, he’s saying you’re not a stereotype. And how do you repay him? You go and sue his ass. Trying to stuff your pockets and pinatas with some extra guacamole so you can send money back home to your tio and tia who still live in the barrio. Well guess what Mexican workers of Target, now I’m offended.  Big Mistake on your part (not really, I’m literally going to do nothing about any of this).
