In transcripts obtained by the New York Times, senior executives with Texaco Inc. are recorded on tapes referring to black employees as “black jelly beans” and using racial epithets. A federal jury in Richmond, Va. found that Circuit City Stores Inc. systematically discriminated against black employees in promotions in its corporate headquarters. Employees working for an Avis Rent A Car franchise stated on the CBS news programme 60 Minutes that they were told not to rent to blacks. Several black secret service agents responsible for protecting the President agreed in 1994 to a settlement to end a class action law suit against Denny's Restaurants for being refused service and racial discrimination.
