SOUTH FULTON, Ga. (CBS46) – An unprovoked racial assault was caught on digital camera. A person inquiring for AT&T directed a racial slur at a South Fulton household’s teenage son.
The person was going door-to-door soliciting prospects on Harmony Loop in South Fulton.
A 16-year-old named Montrell Godley answered via the Ring digital camera and mentioned he wanted to speak to his father first. However that’s when the person walked away, and mentioned, “Thanks for being a [racial slur].”
The person seems to make use of the derogatory time period a second time, as he walks towards the driveway.
The household is shaken and traumatized by what they noticed on digital camera.
“I used to be in shock. As a result of that is my first time ever having to take care of this. I didn’t count on that, and I used to be at a lack of phrases,” mentioned Montrell Godley. “That is simply one thing that no African American ought to settle for.”
Montrell’s dad is simply as pissed off as his son.
“That stuff is unacceptable. It’s offensive. It’s painful. It’s hurtful. And it may result in long-lasting damaging scars,” mentioned Aaron Godley.
He needs motion, instantly.
“I don’t suppose that somebody who has that kind of hatred of their coronary heart needs to be going into communities and to folks’s houses,” mentioned Aaron Godley. “Any person wants to take a seat down and discuss to him. I even can be prepared to speak to him and clarify to him, the injury that you just precipitated with the selection of phrases that you just used.”
After CBS46 Information reached out to AT&T Thursday night, an official mentioned that they’ve terminated the connection with the seller.
AT&T launched an announcement saying:
“This vendor’s conduct is vile and offensive and goes in opposition to every little thing we stand for as an organization. Now we have zero tolerance for what occurred immediately and the connection with this vendor has been terminated.”
