Black workers prevail

A federal court jury agreed today with six black employees of Nucor in Blytheville that they were subjected to racist treatment, and awarded $200,000 to each.

According to a report in Arkansas Business, supervisors re-enacted lynchings, broadcast racial slurs over the plant's radio system and portrayed black employees as monkeys, among other insults. The Nucor store also sold items bearing Confederate flags and the Nucor logo.
