Yet another reason ...

... to never never never buy Tyson products.

Via Political Sapphire:

Top U.S. meat processor Tyson Foods Inc. has denied claims of racial discrimination after being sued over two black employees who complained about the posting of a "Whites Only" sign on a bathroom at a poultry plant in Ashland, Alabama.


In a press release on Thursday, the EEOC said the two black employees were subjected to disciplinary action by Tyson management, including suspensions, after they complained about the segregated bathroom.

The EEOC said it filed suit only after attempting to reach a voluntary settlement.

The suit alleges that Tyson discriminated against Henry Adams, Leon Walker and other black employees by establishing and maintaining a locked bathroom, which on occasion had signs posted on it stating "Out of Order" and "Whites Only."

Right. Knowing what I do of Tyson and of a few too many people in Alabama, I certainly believe this is all a huge misunderstanding.
