It probably wasn’t a call that Lowe’s driver Marcus Bradley was expecting when he went to work that day. Tasked with making a delivery to a customer in Virgina, Bradley got a call from his manager asking him to bring the load back. Why? The customer had called to say she didn’t want a black man at her house. From The Root:

The woman who reportedly asked that no black delivery driver be sent to her home told the news station that she has a right to request what she wants.

“I got a right to have whatever I want and that’s it,” the woman said. “No, I don’t feel bad about nothing.”

Lowe’s has since fired the manager for honoring the request.
