Social media exploded over the weekend with the story about the Albany man who was fired from the Home Depot on Central Avenue because he didn’t seek a manager’s help in dealing with a customer’s racist rant.
Home Depot has since offered Maurice Rucker his old job back. His response — thanks but no thanks. In his own words, Rucker does not feel comfortable putting on the orange apron again.
…Rucker didn’t hear from the individual store. Instead, he heard from the corporate office in Atlanta.
“‘We want you back.’ It’s like, no, you want this to stop. That’s what you want,” said Rucker.
What a fail on the part of Home Depot… They really, really look racist.
