Detroit man had just received his settlement check from a race discrimination lawsuit. But when he went to the bank to deposit it, police were called.
A man sued his employer for racial discrimination, settled the suit, took the settlement check to the bank to cash it, then the bank didn't believe the check was real and called the cops on him, leading to another racial discrimination lawsuit
Wow, what a story: African American man sues his employer for race discrimination, obtains a (seemingly substantial) settlement. Then, when he goes to deposit the check, his bank doesn’t deposit it but instead calls the cops on him for fraud.
1) Black man sues his job alleging racial discrimination. 2) He went to the bank to cash his settlement check but they refused to take it. 3) They instead called the cops and start a fraud investigation. Now he’s suing the bank for racial discrimination
The bank wouldn’t cash Sauntore Thomas’s checks. The checks he received from a racial discrimination settlement. So now he is suing the bank for racial discrimination.
Banking while Black. Man receives settlement check from racial discrimination lawsuit, but when he tries to cash the check, the bank calls the cops on him. 🤯 🤯🤯
Worth noting: The assistant manager who waited on Thomas was African American, and felt that something didn't "look right," so she called police.

Yikes. African-American in Detroit sues his finance-agency employer for racial discrimination, wins ~$100K. Goes to deposit checks--his bank refuses, calls 4 cops. Guy leaves, opens new account at 2nd bank, deposits checks 1hr later--and sues 1st bank
Man settles race discrimination lawsuit…then bank won't cash his check
Man sued his employer, alleging racial discrimination & settled confidentially. When he went to the bank with his check, the bank refused to cash or deposit it… …and called the cops
i hope this guy sues the bank too
After getting a payout for workplace discrimination, a Detroit man's bank refuses to let him cash the check, calls cops. Man sues bank for discrimination:
(He eventually deposited it after opening an account at a new bank. Cheers to banking competition.)
Man settles racial discrimination suit against former employer, receives settlement check. What could go wrong? Bank is suspicious of the checks, suspects, possible fraud, calls the police on him, and hello, fresh racial discrimination suit
