Obnoxious Racist Harasses Black Employees

Despite the liberal narrative promoted through the media, racism against blacks has become exceedingly rare in America. But Hans Bader proves that you can still find it if you know where to look:
Press coverage of Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Tex., usually focuses on her megalomania ("'I am a queen, and I demand to be treated like a queen,' Jackson-Lee once said"), her race-baiting (like claiming the Tea Party is an offshoot of the Ku Klux Klan, and that the government's response to Hurricane Katrina was racist), and her amazing ignorance (like not knowing that astronauts landed on the Moon, not Mars; and not knowing what happened in the Vietnam War).
But being a race-baiting megalomaniac is no crime.
It is against the law, however, to racially harass your employees. And a recent story in Daily Caller suggests that many of her black employees could have viable racial-harassment claims against her.
We already knew Jackson Lee is a horror to work for. It turns out she's more of a horror to some than others:
She is reportedly "harder on black staff." Black staffers lamented that she was "far harsher to the African Americans who work for her. '"You stupid mother-effer" was like a constant,' says one," uttered "'all the time … towards her African American staffers,'" whom "'she felt comfortable enough'" around "'to really curse out,'" unlike "'other ethnic groups in the office.'"
Yet somehow I doubt that Al and Jesse will show up in front of her office with their megaphones any time soon.
