American Charged In Uganda After Racist Assault On Hotel Workers
Uganda police arrested an older American man after reviewing a video that showed him striking out at hotel workers and using racial slurs.
The police identified the man as Jimmy L. Taylor, a U.S. citizen who claims to be a missionary. The alleged assault took place in the Grand Imperial Hotel in Kampala, the capital, according to police. Video of the incident surfaced on the internet on Friday, but it is unclear when it was filmed.
In the video, Taylor can be seen punching and slapping at the workers. He also calls them “n****rs,” tells them they have to obey him and threatens to kill them.
