More of the racist comments behind a former power plant employee's $4 million discrimination suit came out today. Suzanne Langford, who worked at Starrett City power plant from 2004-2007, says her white boss called a black worker (not her) "a monkey" and "a gorilla," saying that he "should be up a tree sucking on a banana." He also bore ill will towards Oprah Winfrey; allegedly telling Langford the talk show host "should have died in a plane crash," reports the Post. The Queens woman also claims she was forced to serve as locker room attendant in a men's only area decorated with "sexually explicit photographs" showing "women in various states of undress, in sexually suggestive attire and in a demeaning manner."
