John Schnatter has stepped down from the University of Louisville Board of Trustees amid controversy over his use of a racial slur. They of course remain in a scandal 24/7.
The report shows:
“Colonel Sanders called blacks n—–s,” Schnatter allegedly said on the call, according to Forbes. The report also said Schnatter “reflected on his early life in Indiana, where, he said, people used to drag African-Americans from trucks until they died. He apparently intended for the remarks to convey his antipathy to racism, but multiple individuals on the call found them to be offensive,” a source told Forbes.
