Haitian Lawyer Sues For NYS Medicaid IG Slur of Angry Black Face But State Downplays It

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 15 – A black attorney of Haitian descent, Ferlande Milord-Francois, was working in the NYS Office of the Medicaid Inspector General when she was told "Your angry black face scares me." She sued.    

On September 15 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis J. Liman held oral argument. Inner City Press covered it.  

 New York State's attorney argued that the "angry black face" commented couldn't be attributed to supervisors, and that angry while unprofessional was not necessarily racist.   

The plaintiff's attorney cited the current unrest as showing that this conduct must be acted on.

The case is Milord-Francois v. The New York State Office of the Medicaid Inspector General et al., 19-cv-179 (Liman)
