    Man says he was fired from UPS after complaining about racial remark - WRAL

    A UPS employee in Raleigh says he was fired in retaliation after admonishing his supervisor for making a racially insensitive remark.

    Joshua Boyd, 22, said Friday that he had worked only three weeks at the UPS Customer Center, loading boxes onto trucks, when the encounter with his boss happened Tuesday.

    He said the supervisor, who is white, immediately apologized. But Boyd said the supervisor laughed about the chokehold joke two more times to other employees.

    The fact of the matter is, the supervisor will probably be out of a job.
