Minnesota Man Gets Fired For Racist Facebook Comments Against #BlackLivesMatter

Editorial: The 'State Of The Black Union' Touches On Serious Issues Concerning African-Americans

A Mankato, Minnesota man lost his job with a food processing company after his racist diatribe against Black Lives Matter protesters came to light, reported.

Brad Schultz ranted against Minneapolis-based activists connected to the movement on Dec. 24, the same night demonstrators briefly shut down traffic near the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.

“You dumb fucking niggers,” he wrote on the Black Lives Matter Minneapolis Facebook page. “Get out of town with your bullshit protesting.”

Schultz also made an apparent reference to 24-year-old Jamar Clark, who was shot and killed by police in September, calling him a “loser life” [sic] and that he deserved to be shot.

“You make yourselves look worse. Get off your ass, get a job, do something,” Schultz stated. “Just leave, white people don’t like you.”

He later deleted the post and apologized for it, but by that point, both screenshots of his remarks and his online profile — listing him as an employee of Archer Daniels Midland — were distributed online.

Three days later, the Chicago-based company confirmed on Twitter that it had investigated Schultz’s comments and terminated his employment:

Minnesota Public Radio reported that Schultz’s Facebook page is no longer accessible to the public.
