Black construction worker fired for objecting to co-workers’ Confederate flag

confederate-flag

A Black man decided to speak out against co-workers who wore a Confederate flag at a construction site. The incident took place at the construction of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

The Black construction worker, who wants to remain anonymous, took photos of the White construction workers who wore Confederate flag stickers on their hard hats. The Black construction worker found the stickers offensive. But when he complained to his employers at Superior Rigging and Erecting Company, he was terminated.

When Superior Rigging and Erecting Company were contacted, they claimed that the White workers who wore the Confederate flag stickers were not a part of their company and that multiple construction companies are currently on site. They also said the Black construction worker was fired because of low performance.

However, the Black construction worker will file a lawsuit for wrongful termination and is being supported by the NAACP. Other Black workers at the construction site have also complained, but nothing is being done to stop the use of Confederate symbols at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Georgia has a turbulent history when it comes to Confederate flag. The flag was used in Georgia in 1956 to promote segregation and White supremacy. It remained the official state flag until 2001. The Confederate flag has been known as a symbol of racism and was adopted by several southern states.

Following Dylan Roof’s terrorist attack on Blacks in Charleston, South Carolina, the Confederate flag began to garner more attention for it being a symbol of hate. Although the White construction workers are protected by the First Amendment, they should not be allowed to wear symbols that reinforce hatred.

    “Although the White construction workers are protected by the First Amendment, they should not be allowed to where symbols that reinforce hatred.”

    As much as I hate to see the Confederate flag, I don’t think you can summarily say that it reinforces hate any more than you can say that the BLM symbol reinforces hate.

    @Jason You see how dangerous these white supremacist are with their delusion. For @SrAgri to say a group like BLM, which was born out of the unjust treatment of black people by race soldiers shows hate is beyond comical.

    What he is actually saying, similar to what all white supremacist say and think. Is that you do not have a right to stand against our savagery. Whether you are standing against a symbol of our hate and savagery or outright murder and slaughter. Any resistance you show is wrong!!

    They said the exact same thing about the Black Panther Party for self defense during the 60’s. So it goes to show you these parasites are programmed for one thing and one thing only and that is the destruction of all humanity.

    • Jason on May 9, 2017 at 8:24 pm

      White Supremacy is a mental illness. Ever wonder why it has persisted for so long? Because of it’s supporter BOTH White and non-White. White Supremacy needs to always be called out and no longer be allowed to disguise itself.

      • Oak510finest on May 9, 2017 at 8:25 pm

        I absolutely agree.

      • SrAgri on May 10, 2017 at 8:42 am

        All racism needs to be called out and no longer allowed to disguise itself, including anti-white and anti-Semitic. Black people do not have a monopoly on discrimination.

        • Jason on May 10, 2017 at 10:20 am

          Once again you show your lack of knowledge in areas you constantly run your mouth on. Alert me when you have verified evidence of Blacks discriminating against Whites (as a group) by preventing them from getting loans/resources or preventing them from living where they would like. Show me those same Blacks historically preventing Whites from their pursuit of happiness and doing it with the backing of the government. Yes – we all can be bigots, but racism is deeply rooted within White Supremacy. Educate yourself, and stop being a fool.

          • SrAgri on May 10, 2017 at 10:46 am

            “Alert me when you have verified evidence of Blacks discriminating against Whites (as a group) … Show me those same Blacks historically preventing Whites from their pursuit of happiness and doing it with the backing of the government”
            Let’s see… South Africa, Haiti, and Zimbabwe come to mind off the top of my head. I’m sure there are other examples.

            “Educate yourself, and stop being a fool.”
            The more I educate myself, the more I understand how foolish you race baiters and SJWs are. You are trying to redefine words just to make yourselves feel better about your own racism.



          • Oak510finest on May 10, 2017 at 10:58 am

            How typical, I knew you would deflect to some make believe scenario in a foreign country.

            @Jason, specifically asked you for an example of black ransom in America.. We are on an American site discussing American articles. So stop pulling made up examples out of your a**!

            So the question remains.. Give an example of how black racism affects whites as whole? What law did blacks create that specifically discriminates and targets white people?



          • Jason on May 10, 2017 at 1:28 pm

            I am speaking in the United States SR…. You do know that White slaughtered thousands of Black South Africans, correct? You do know the Haitians overthrew their enslavers, correct? You are reaching, and it is sad.



          • Oak510finest on May 10, 2017 at 3:05 pm

            He (@SrAgri) knew exactly what you were talking about. He knew he didn’t have a response. So instead of being a man about it, he rather lie and go down with the ship..

            As you see, he still hasn’t responded and more than likely will not. He will go zero dark thirty for a day or so. Then will pop up posting on something else and act as if he already answered your question. These white supremacist are so typical when you call them out on their BS!



          • SrAgri on May 10, 2017 at 7:12 pm

            “You do know that White slaughtered thousands of Black South Africans, correct?”
            You do realize that the black ANC has killed more black South Africans in the last 26 years than Apartheid did during the previous 43 years, correct? The party openly threatens genocide of white South Africans and has already made a good start by killing thousands of white people, mostly Boer farmers.

            “You do know the Haitians overthrew their enslavers, correct?”
            Yes, I realize that. I could even understand the execution of the slave owners. However, a lot of the white / European people in Haiti were not slave owners.
            It didn’t matter, though. They murdered them all in an act of genocide.



          • Jason on May 10, 2017 at 7:28 pm

            The Haitians did what they had to do to their oppressors. Take notes. When you are surrounded and subjugated by White Supremacists day-in and day-out – you don’t take the time to distinguish who is innocent from all the guilty. They did what they had to do for their survival.



          • SrAgri on May 11, 2017 at 10:14 am

            Wow, a thinly-veiled racist threat.

            They could have simply exiled the Europeans who were not involved in slavery. The fact that they chose to murder them instead shows that they were motivated by racist hatred.



          • Jason on May 11, 2017 at 1:44 pm

            It is called karma.



          • SrAgri on May 11, 2017 at 3:38 pm

            I deal in reality, not Hindu mysticism, so I’m going to stick with “racist hatred”.



          • Oak510finest on May 12, 2017 at 10:12 pm

            Or those Europeans could have left themselves. But yet they stayed because they supported the savagery against the Haitians. Gladly they paid the most fitting and justified price for their heinousness. Thank God and the ancestors for those Haitians. A salute to their bravery and success against those murderous Europeans!!



          • Oak510finest on May 11, 2017 at 5:27 pm

            @SrAgri I see he deflected and threw out a few trigger words as a smokescreen to avoid the question. He has still yet to answer. Which is to give a comparative example of black people creating laws specifically to target and discriminate against whites in the U.S. ?



          • Oak510finest on May 10, 2017 at 10:51 am

            I see @SrAgri ran from your questions. He knew you boxed him in, when you told him to quantify so-called black racism.

            He knew even for him, that he couldn’t lie his way out of it. Or create some mythical non existant scenario.

            Or he could be scowering the Internet looking for some answer or deflect by using some examples from a foreign country. White supremacist love to use any example they can find instead of addressing racism in this country.



        • Oak510finest on May 10, 2017 at 10:01 pm

          We do have the monopoly on discrimination. Just as the whites have the patent on savagery.

          • Eli Odell Jackson on May 12, 2017 at 12:02 am

            Y’all just keep talking to each other in your wickedly, devilishly hateful little screeds and sneers.
            You actually defend the racial genocide, rape, torture of innocent women and children and brush the immorality of this away as “karma”.

            Because they belonged to a group which you deem as morally impure than any wicked injustice to them as individuals is okay, or even good because of the effect you perceive on the collective.

            Call it White, Red, Yeller, Rainbow, Indigo, Brown or Black; that is unconscionable wickedness.



          • Oak510finest on May 12, 2017 at 10:30 pm

            Absolutely, I support that!! They received a fitting judgement for their savagery and attempted enslavement of the Haitian people. They had ample time and opportunity to leave the country they were not indigenous to. But they chose not too.

            Those who stayed confirmed their position for the subjugation of the Haitian people. Thus those Europeans who stayed were at fault for the murder of their own children, by trying to pass their savagery and teaching of subjugation to the next generation. Thankfully, they paid dearly for it!

            The Haitian people are forever engrained in history as beloved warriors and freedom fighters who defeated some of the world best European armies. Thus cementing their legacy as the only slave population to rise up and defeat those Europeans who attempted to murder and enslave them.

    • Marie Thomas on May 12, 2017 at 5:53 pm

      Oak510….But what’s sad is that the propaganda works. They were quite successful at smearing the Black Panthers. To this day people (and many Blacks) think the Panthers was a militant group. Not a group fighting AGAINST violence and injustice.

      • Oak510finest on May 12, 2017 at 6:41 pm

        You are absolutely correct. Well said.

      • SrAgri on May 16, 2017 at 2:30 pm

        Maybe the confusion stems from all of the drug trafficking, violence, and murder that the Black Panthers carried out. All of that could make people think that they were militant.

  3. Nobody Special on May 10, 2017 at 4:54 am

    The British invaded this country, killed many Americans by trying to keep them under tyrannical rule, but there hasn’t been a ban on the British flag. The Germans committed genocide to an entire race of people, but the German flag isn’t banned. The Confederate flag is a symbol of Southern Heritage, just as any region’s flags are a symbol of heritage in every part of the world. When you start banning an entire people’s heritage, you’re advocating racism, intolerance, and hate, and infringing on the First Amendment right of all people.
    Telling a person they can’t display a certain flag because it offends YOU will be no different than telling you that you’re not allowed to use the word “white” because it offends ME.

    “The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.”
    ― John F. Kennedy

    • AR Shaw on May 10, 2017 at 12:05 pm

      @Nob0dy_Special:disqus There’s nothing wrong with celebrating southern heritage. But when a flag is adopted by white supremacist, KKK, and hate groups, it becomes tarnished. If those who embrace “White Southern Heritage” are offended by those groups, they should denounce its use by hate groups. It destroys any legacy that you wish to uphold.

      • Jason on May 10, 2017 at 2:30 pm

        They can’t because they know, at it’s core, is the subjugation of Black people. I piss on their flag, and those responsible for creating it.

        • Nobody Special on May 11, 2017 at 8:33 am

          The enslavement of African Americans was initiated by Africans. It’s 100% fact. The confederate flag was a symbol of southern states uniting in an effort to preserve state’s rights. Please educate yourself, and maybe you won’t be so full of hate and racism.

          • Jason on May 11, 2017 at 9:25 am

            Educate myself? You have got to be kidding. I have probably forgotten more than you will ever know. Based on your either ignorant or deceptive comments – do you agree that the Confederacy was in support of the subjugation of the enslaved African? It’s okay if you want to scurry off now and hide. I know you feel this heat.



          • Jason on May 11, 2017 at 9:32 am

            You have every right to fly that rag in your trailer, pickup truck or farm. You don’t have the right to have it as a symbol on any public building or land.



          • SrAgri on May 11, 2017 at 9:33 am

My intent was to offend you in the name of all the Black women, men and children who were offended when groups of masked marauders known as the KKK flew your “southern heritage” symbol while terrorizing and murdering them in the middle of the night. Those Black women, men and children could do little against your “southern heritage” symbol, but this is a new time. Like I said in a previous post – I piss on your confederate rag.

          • Nobody Special on May 11, 2017 at 9:49 am

            Here’s a very honest answer, with a very interesting fact added in: Of course much of the confederacy was pro-slavery, but so was much of the union. But banning a flag won’t change history. Let me ask you a question and see if you can give me an honest answer. Should the worker this article is about have been working or worried about what someone else was wearing?



          • Jason on May 11, 2017 at 1:48 pm

            He should certainly be working within his rights of freedom from discrimination. Unfortunately, forcing him to work under the documented history of this flag (which you admit was about the subjugation of Black bodies) violates his rights. I hope he gets a suitcase full of cash.



      • Nobody Special on May 11, 2017 at 8:28 am

        You do realize that no man can force another man’s thoughts, right? What you’re saying is that an entire group of people should be punished for the sins of an entirely different group just because they like some of the same things. The holocaust started with the exact same way of thinking.

        • AR Shaw on May 14, 2017 at 2:52 am

          @Nob0dy_Special:disqus I’m not going to deny the historical value of a particular item that represents a time in this nation. But I’m not going to be naive and believe that those who embrace the history of the Confederacy weren’t powerful enough to distance the flag from hate groups and the KKK. You’re not going to let another man walk in your home and throw dirt on your walls without stopping his actions. The moment hate groups began to embrace the Confederate flag, those who saw its historical value should’ve stepped up and denounced anyone who attempted to do such a thing. However, no one stopped hate groups from making the flag a symbol of hate. As a result it’s tarnished forever because no one was proactive. Whatever legacy existed has been destroyed by hate groups.

          • Nobody Special on May 14, 2017 at 4:01 am

            There has not been one incident in recent history where a hate group used the confederate flag that hasn’t been completely condemned by those who support the history of the flag. If we could stop a group of people from committing crimes under a certain pretense, Isis would have been stopped long ago. What one group calls a symbol of hate may have a completely different meaning to another group. More people have been slaughtered under the flag of Christianity than all wars combined, and the cross was once thought of as a symbol of hate. Hate cannot be conquered by hate. It can only be conquered by love.

    • Jason on May 10, 2017 at 2:27 pm

      The stupid Confederacy stood for the subjugation of Black people in this country. The Confederate flag is a symbol of disrespect for the descendants of the African slave. Everything it stands for needs to burn with it. Keep repeating your “southern heritage” all you want, but many know this is simply codespeak and a symbol of White Supremacy. No one should be forced to work under the Conderate rag, and I am hoping the man mentioned in this article gets big $$$$$ paid out to him.

      • Nobody Special on May 11, 2017 at 8:21 am

        • Jason on May 11, 2017 at 9:28 am

          African people being blamed for the institution of chattel slavery on the North American continent is a big joke. Show me the Africans that built the slave ships that crossed an entire ocean to relieve them of their slaves. The problem with you suspected White Supremacists is that you know many are waking up to your crap, so you are on a mission to re-sping/re-write history to make yourselves not look so pathetic. Sorry, but many of us have an international education that allows us to call you on your crap.

          • Nobody Special on May 11, 2017 at 9:43 am

            I’ve seen your comments on other posts, so I’m going to just tell you what you already know. You’re a racist. Your comments prove that fact, and it doesn’t matter what level of education you claim to have. Calling me a “suspected white supremacist” is pretty funny, though, given the fact that I’m not white.
            Europeans sailed to Africa to buy slaves for the simple fact that they were for sale. Supply and demand is grade school economics. Even though your “international education” is questionable, your lack of common sense isn’t.



          • Jason on May 11, 2017 at 1:52 pm

            Wow – you insult me. Ever wonder why White Supremacy persists? Because it has supporters both White and non-White. You not being a White person makes no difference as White Supremacy warps all ethnic groups. It is a religion, so the color of your skin doesn’t exempt you from practicing it. Most people know that Asians and Hispanics are some of the worse offenders because they believe they are better than the Black man. Shoutout to the murdereres of Trayvon and Akai G.

            I know some of you race-baiters have wet dreams about Zimmerman hunting down Martin and killing him, but there is no way Akai Gurley was murdered. The officer accidentally fired and the bullet ricocheted. Negligent homicide, yes. Murder, no. Either you are ignorant of the case or you are a deliberate liar. From what I have seen from you thusfar, I suspect that it is the latter.



          • SrAgri on May 11, 2017 at 10:18 am

            If white people in North America were sailing to Africa and kidnapping black Africans to impress into slavery, then the whole guilt for the institution of slavery would be entirely on them. However, regardless of how you want to spin history, that is simply not what happened.



          • Jason on May 11, 2017 at 1:43 pm

            Tell me about the African enslavers who built a ship that sailed across the Atlantic with African bodies stacked on top of each other? You don’t even realize how ignorant you sound. I am done with you as your ignorance is probably contagious live everything else you guys have.



          • SrAgri on May 11, 2017 at 3:14 pm

            “Tell me about the African enslavers who built a ship that sailed across the Atlantic with African bodies stacked on top of each other?”

            You really need to study your history better. If that did happen, it was an infrequent event.

            The stand scenario was that an African would be kidnapped by another black African, sold to a black African slave trader, sold to European slave traders who transported them to North America, and then sold to white North American slave owners.

            If you google it on the internet, there are references and even pictures to help you understand.

    Interestingly, OSHA actually discourages the application of unnecessary stickers to hard hats – it makes them harder to inspect for cracks.

    Perhaps the offended man could just have reported the stickers to OSHA.

    I really don’t buy the story about the guy being fired for complaining about the flag stickers. I have been around some really racist contractors, and they are simply not going to fire a decent worker over something so trivial.

    • Oak510finest on May 11, 2017 at 6:53 pm

      Yes they will!! White people are the most insecure, racist and trivial people on the planet. Just as you complain about Black people defending themselves against systematic white supremacy. This contractor did the exact same thing. Instead of complaining, he retaliated against a man for calling out a racist symbol.

    when obama release those mostly white soldiers from duty, they had no dam jobs and no where to live , the va hospital were overburden and the homeless shelters fulled , they had to get in there and get a separate housing set up to help, fast forward , now them same white soldier whom didnt qualify for police jobs or jobs at IBM AND FORD MOTOR , is now got jobs once the mexicans are run back to mexiico , are those white men gonna be fair and give some jobs to black men? probably not , black contractor will hire them maybe maybe not ,, regardless white contractor dominate in that field leaving black men still selling dope on corners and pumping out kids they cant feed . this is why black america is in turmoil all the time ,its like tryihng to walk in quiksand with rubber boots on, , white males will alway dominate on the work force . a white woman can easily get a job but the jobs that are male dominated , white males will dominate. . were not in slavery every man is for himself . . so blacks need to hire blacks also . .

    TRUE
    white men did buy slaves from africans as merchandise from tribe leaders,, it was a deal
    whites bought black to america to work free. so they could profit so blacks were the value of pigs
    white lost control of slaves , when the civil war hit , lincoln freed the merchandise and hell broke
    white men are inferior to black men . black men were fertal and had more babies
    white men are afraid of race war , and blacks taking over , thats why the get evil when a white girl marrys a nigro and mixed kids are hated extremely by white males , they see a take over
    obama being mixed raised by a white mother is proof .to them of a cleaver take over , by the white woman sleeping and fathering kids with random black men . .obama daddy didnt even marry his moma.. umm but thats a african straight out of kenya? not an african america.. double edge sword for whites who were left scratching their heads ..
    white men see the flag as a symbol to show they still dominate and will take over “” no matter what lincoln thought it meant , it was suppose to symbolize the north vs south in a senseless war where white men killed dozens of their own boys , because they didnt want slaved freed:::: laugh”:”
    white men , do not educate their kids on slave history . there is a reason for that too
    white men blew up the world trade in oklahoma, it was not just timothy mcveigh at fault
    white men would like to distroy blacks ,, hell they kill up their own children . SANDY HOOK?
    dillon roof was just one racist ,his thoughs are the same as hundreds they just havent been caught , reason cops can kill at will , they came from a war they feel dogged them , and they saw hardly any blacks on the battle field so they are angry over that, 88 percent ex milatary get cop jobs pay attention , they are the first to get hired , ,do you see black men off the streets lining up for them jobs? remember dahner the black cop i nLA from the miltary went nuts? and killed up cops because they fired him? and was on the run .. this is why black men are not welcome in those jobs ,cause its not citizens that they are mad at its , the miltary and police force… cops , the white house could be a plantation of the mind .
    the average white ,hatred is breeded , and taught ,,, , generation curse handed down generations
    i listen to whites talk , and i see how racism is birth . its the mind and what is taught them . as young as 3 year old . and by the time their 49 you can just for get trying to show them how ignorant racism is
    america is in danger of racism not going away ,children are not taught the truth thats whey the lie stil lives strong . TEACH YOUR KIDS THE TRUTH . WHITE FOLKS

      Lincoln didn’t free the slaves because he had as big heart. Read the history. They were a bargaining tool.?

      Wow, you are really racist.

  9. Oak510finest on May 11, 2017 at 11:29 pm

    @Nobody Special and @SrAgri. So since Africans were to blame for one of the most heinous crime ever committed according to your post. Answer these simple questions.
    Were these Africans also responsible for the raping of children and men during the “middle passage?”or the millions of Africans savagely thrown overboard into the freezing Atlantic ocean to suffocate and drown?
    Were these same Africans responsible for the continued rape and torture of these Africans they sold, once they reached America for 400 yrs. Were they responsible for the hanging of women and feeding their babies to alligators? Were they responsible for taking black skin and making leather products as documented even in slave narratives?
    Were these Africans also responsible for creating the KKK? Did they also create segregation laws to specifically target blacks?
    Were these same Africans responsible for banks charging blacks unfair loan rates and being sued for it? Or not allowing these blacks to live where they want?
    Were they responsible for deliberately underfunding black neighborhood to create ghettos?
    Were these Africans responsible for flooding the black neighborhood with drugs(iran-contra affair)? Were they then also responsible for the mass incarceration of blacks, even though whites commit 3x more crime? Or not given the same sentences for comparible crimes?
    Were these same Africans who had slaves for “sale” as you stated. Responsible for testing deadly vaccines in the black community? Or the continued police brutality and subjugation?
    Since, we blacks have not studied history as you state and are the racist. Please enlighten us by answering the questions above?

    This story’s title is disingenuous (a lie); He was not fired for that at all, and even if he was they have a natural right before God to do that, heck, if it didn’t slow them down none they could stick a flagpole between their belt and waistband and wave 12sq ft of that flag as they walked, “they should not be allowed to wear symbols that reinforce hatred” is the most asinine of subjective nothings I’ve heard all week.

    If a construction worker is not allowed to wear a confederate flag sticker on his hardhat (they wear a lot of stickers by the way) in Georgia, then revisionistic Black supremacism truly has won,

    That rag has represented racist murder throughout this country! It is the flag of hate and bigotry! That is what this company has chose to defend!
