Bank of America employee post shockingly racist rant on Facebook

ATLANTA — A former Bank of America must have seen one too many blacks one day — or she had just finished watching the updated version of “Roots” — and just snapped and lost it as the debased, reprobate of a racist woman posted a reprehensible diatribe on her Facebook page about African Americans.
Christine McMullen Lindgren, who worked at an Atlanta branch, was terminated after she had this to say about black people:
 “f***ing n*****s’ should ‘go back to Africa … I hate Facebook for this reason you f***ing n****rs. And yes, if [you] can call each that well I can too … F***ing n****r go back to Africa. Get over your pity party. You created this hatred and your own kind that brought your great-great-parents [sic] over here and sold them … Do something with your lives and your children’s lives. I’m sure you don’t work, collect welfare and teach hatred … Your poor children. All five of them you can’t afford because I pay for them.”
Never mind that many of her coworkers, and some possible superiors, were African Americans.
A reader who noticed the woman and her place of work notified Bank of America of their depraved employee’s vile views.
After being deluged with complaints, BOA posted a mea culpa on their Facebook post:
“We are aware of an unacceptable post on Facebook,’ Bank of America wrote on its Facebook page … The comments are reprehensible. We have completed our investigation and have terminated the employment of the individual who posted the comments.”
Andy Aldridge, a senior vice president at Bank of America, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, “We have investigated the matter and terminated her. She no longer works for Bank of America,” adding that the former employee’s comments were “reprehensible and unacceptable.”
