For the past month, DeAndre Martin (pictured) claims he has been racially harassed and threatened at his Arnold, Mo., customer service workplace, and after company management has reportedly refused to act on the abuse, Martin has decided to go public with his experience, according to the Huffington Post.
Martin, who is reportedly employed by Convergys, told Fox 2 that he first began receiving the threatening images on July 11th. The first drawing allegedly depicted a Black man hanging from a tree. Just four days later, after ending his workday, another incident allegedly took place: When the 24-year-old man approached his car, which had been sitting in the company’s parking lot, he allegedly saw the word “N*gger” — along with a picture of a noose — spray painted on his car (pictured).
“You see the N-word and then a big picture of a noose, and that’s a big deal to me,” Martin told Fox 2. “The first time never should have happened, and the second time was over the top. It’s always like a shock and awe but then suddenly anger sets in.”
