Three African-American workers of an airport services company have filed a federal lawsuit claiming racial harassment and a hostile work environment. Following President Obama's election the employees, Kanon Dillard, Allen Eaden and Tracey Harris, state that a campaign of racial harassment by their supervisor was ramped up and included repeated use of racial slurs directed at them and black people in general as well as alleged jokes about use of a noose. The men were employed by Menzies Aviation in Houston.
