Shooting suspect Frank James filed lawsuit against previous employer for racial discrimination

It appears that alleged Brooklyn subway shooter Frank James has previously been steeped knee-high in racial grievances — the very same type, in fact, that is often promoted by the establishment press.

The Associated Press reports that after James completed a machine shop course in 1983, he picked up a job at the New Jersey-based aerospace manufacturer Curtiss-Wright til 1991 when he was fired.

But instead of accepting the termination and moving on, he filed a racial discrimination complaint, apparently believing that he’d been fired for being black. The suit was reportedly dismissed a year later in court.

Decades later, it appears he still remains resentful over the termination. The AP notes that among his many since-deleted YouTube videos was one in which he’d complained that he “couldn’t get any justice for what I went through” back in the early 90s.

The videos were deleted by YouTube because of all the racist content they’d allegedly contained.

The New York Post has meanwhile obtained confirmation that James’ termination had nothing to do with race and everything to do with his shoddy work performance.

“He was disciplined eight times in his final 13 months with the company, including for excessive absenteeism, and was once suspended for three days for ‘failure to perform,’ according to accounts from Curtiss-Wright employees filed by the company in response to James’ 1991 lawsuit,” the Post notes.

His termination reportedly came after he “failed to fill out inspection sheets and made parts incorrectly, then blew off directives to fix the sloppy work.” It also came amid the terminations of four other employees who were reportedly white or Asian.

After James’ complaint fell through, he then turned to repeatedly calling the company and making “terroristic threats,” according to a local prosecutor’s office representative who spoke with the Post. The threats led to him being convicted of harassment in 1995.

It appears that following his termination, he began living off Social Security and bouncing in and out of “several mental health facilities” in the New York City area, including Bridgeway House, as noted by the AP.

The AP notes that in one YouTube video, he’d spoken about wanting to get off Social Security and return to work.

“My goal at Bridgeway in 1997 was to get off Social Security and go back to f–king work,” he’d reportedly said, adding that he’d enrolled in college and taken a course in computer-aided design and manufacturing.

The education apparently did the trick, and James would up with a job at the New Jersey-based telecommunications giant Lucent Technologies, but he was soon fired for reasons that currently remain unclear.

According to the New York Post, “By 1997, James filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. He listed debts of $18,235, including $7,000 in federal back taxes, $3,000 in New York state back taxes, $6,000 in student loans and a $2,235 car note. Then unemployed, he listed assets of $1,710, including a 1986 Oldsmobile 98 valued at $800, $500 in tools, and his $200 apartment security deposit.”

Coupled with his racist YouTube videos, Frank’s work and financial history appear to paint a picture of a resentful, mediocre man who’d sought to blame his own failures in life on others — and who, in the process, had embraced black nationalism and become an avid racist.

As noted by various media sources, he’d railed frequently on his YouTube channel against whites, Jews, and Hispanics. Against everybody but himself.

The racial grievance he harbors closely mirrors that seen or heard in the media, where contributors and hosts frequently portray white people as “privileged,” inherently evil “oppressors” who’re to blame for anything and everything.

Some critics have wondered why, given the tendency to blame white nationalist terrorism on Fox News, there’s been no concerted effort to similarly blame James’ act of black nationalist terrorism on, say, MSNBC or CNN …
