Lawsuit claims black sacker, ban from Big Sandy grocery store violated customer’s rights (source)
BIG SANDY — A Hawkins man is claiming his civil rights and religious freedom were violated earlier this year when a black man sacked his groceries and a Big Sandy grocery…
“Wait a minute, don’t touch my groceries. I can’t have someone negroidal touch my food. It’s against my creed.”
According to the lawsuit, Thomas went on to explain he meant a black person when he used the term “negroidal.”
“My question is, why after I told them how I felt and that it was against my creed did this negroid try to impress himself upon me and try to handle my groceries again.” Thomas said.
Thomas said his religious beliefs are based on Vedism, which he said encompasses Hinduism.
“Vedism translates into knowledge. I am not this way because I am ignorant. Ignorance is the enemy,” he said.
I’m laughing way too fucking hard. I just can not wrap my head around someone saying this in all seriousness. I’m pretty sure that’s a mental defense against the crushing depression that would ensue, though.
