Black Man Fired From Home Depot For Confrontation With Racist Customer
The Albany man fired from a Home Depot after a confrontation with a customer will not be accepting the offer to get his job back.
Maurice Rucker says he confronted a customer at the Home Depot on Central Avenue who was berating him with racially-charged insults.
After Rucker’s story spread on social media and garnered attention, Home Depot offered him his job back Friday.
Now, Rucker says he’s not going back to work with the company. “I personally felt it was kind of disingenuous,” said Rucker. “You’re kind of admitting that you were wrong in firing me in the first place.”
