Apparent Hate Hoax at Tesla

The situation is grim if persons of color cannot escape racism even at a Tesla plant near San Francisco. Or is that smell yet another hate hoax?

A worker at the Tesla factory in Fremont is suing the electric car maker after he said he was a victim of racial discrimination and harassment from his co-workers.

DeWitt Lambert, a 44-year-old African-American, says he was “subjected to racial slurs and lewd behavior” from co-workers for more than a year including being called the n-word.

The n-word! The jackpot should be enough to make a leprechaun weep with envy. Good thing Tesla is so heavily subsidized with our taxes.

Tesla’s side of the story:

In a statement emailed to KPIX 5, the company said Lambert’s claim had been investigated.

“HR personnel investigated, interviewing all of the employees who were reportedly involved,” the statement said. “That investigation turned up conflicting accounts of what happened … In the end, there was no objective evidence that anything inappropriate occurred toward Dewitt.”

According to Tesla, the supposed racists are actually former friends who Lambert socialized with after work, using the same “racially insensitive language” that he later denounced them for using.

Lambert also whimpers that the coworkers he accuses of racism were promoted while he was not.

However,

“This is false,” the statement [reads]. “Dewitt was promoted 12 months ago, and the reason he wasn’t given a second promotion within 12 months is that, among other things, he had been given a final written warning for posting pictures of confidential Tesla technology on Facebook in clear violation of company policy.”

It is unclear whether expecting a Person of African Ancestry to comply with company policy also qualifies as racism according to the suit.

Lambert is suspended with full pay while Tesla investigates…

Given the infamously moonbatty politics of the Gay Area, chances are good that Lambert will collect no matter how lame his suit, so Tesla may pay him off. Even if they don’t, paid time off beats working. Also, he earned a spot on the Hate Hoax List. Attaboy, DeWitt!

Tesla
Made by racists?

    “According to Tesla, the supposed racists are actually former friends who Lambert socialized with after work, using the same “racially insensitive language” that he later denounced them for using.”

    I served in the Navy for 22 years, and let me tell you I have always heard blacks call other blacks the “n” word which they said was a sign of affection. I have people who had to sit in classes and be told that is a racist word and yet it was used quite frequently among blacks.

    Not buying it. His story has more holes that Swiss cheese.

    ” he had been given a final written warning for posting pictures of confidential Tesla technology on Facebook” Why the heck would he do this? The only reason I can think of is for bragging purposes: “looks at dis here teknolgy an sheit, we niggiz built dis sheit, weez build duh piramids an sheit, we wuz kangs n sheit.”

  • Made by at least one hate hoaxer.

    Affirmative action may be the reason Tesla finds itself in this situation. Lambert’s ruse was all about race; he is not helping to promote the hiring of decent and worthy minorities.

    It is true that the n word is a favorite of the young blacks, and some of their white peers. It’s used casually in place of the word friends, as in “gotta msg my niggas…”

    A few years back when I was riding the Boston MBTA trolleys for work, I often heard that word being used by teenage riders, and would see the reaction of older black folks. Many would just look down and just shake their heads. They seemingly realized how the young were tossing around the equivalent of oral dynamite, and knew nothing the history behind that word.

    Stories such as this highlight why so many American companies set up shop off shore. Without the hoards of SJW’s masquerading as lawyers, a business can conduct business without the fear of being tied up in litigation.

    In the US, employee handbooks are as thick as the Manhattan white pages, yet there’s always lawyers looking for a way to go after businesses for money.

    It used to be an employee would feign injury to collect worker’s comp, and anyone who has operated a business knows how much that costs. Clearly, the payoff from comp claims was just small potatoes, so the SJWs now go after businesses for these hate words, which, it seems, are often used by the “victim” in their own lives.

    somehow the picture of all those windmills in the background reminds me of ‘The Day Of The Triffids’ with about the same sort of results

    the way to stop this crap is to reinstate ‘loser pays’
    when you lose your case you pay the other guy’s expenses

    The Tesla roadster pictured in the story was made by Lotus in Hethel, England. Was the first Tesla model and it has much in common with the Lotus platform used for the Elise and Exige. Made by racists? No. Made by a bunch of turnip farmers from Hethel? Yes.

    Easy defense for that claim, just play the jury some Rap music, case closed.

    The 2011 Tesla Roadster from Lotus. Built by race-ists.
