Jerome Bettis Files Racial Discrimination Lawsuit
Former NFL star Jerome Bettis $66 million racial discrimination lawsuit against Pittsburgh-based energy company EQT.
The ex-Steelers great claims that EQT backed out of a business deal with a trucking company owned by Bettis and his brother – a deal that was supposed to be part of an initiative to work with minority-owned businesses.
Bettis told USA Today he filed the suit to “fight for what is right” and to stand up against “what I believe to be racial injustice”.
Does Bettis have a case here? Do you trust companies who pledge to serve racial causes, or is it usually just lip service?
