A black midtown hotel cook says two co-workers inside of a year have dressed like the Ku Klux Klan and harassed him. Julius Jones said the latest incident occurred Tuesday at the Roger Smith Hotel — a day after he hit the hotel and three employees with a $35 million discrimination lawsuit over an alleged racist stunt on Oct. 28, 2010.
Jones’ lawyer, Eric Sanders, blames the hotel for both incidents. “The first time they said it was a prank; this shows no one got the memo that this is unacceptable behavior in the workplace,” he said.
