I press X to doubt... Remember alot of this in the case is based on assertations by defendants without serious proof (IE voice recordings, video recordings, etc). Also an employee being racist is not reflective of the company as a whole. Not to mention you have to realize that in this day and age it would be very crazy to try something like that especially in such a huge way as getting caught would inevitable. Were not talking like this was from the 1960's, were talking about 2012. I highly doubt Musk even if he was a horrible racist would do it because he knows it would come to bite him and harm his margins in the end. It can come down to simple statistics when it comes to board rooms for instance.

The $137,000,000 award was granted to Owen Diaz
The core fact has already been proven, pushed through the court, and a Jury of 12 agreed with the evidence. The secondary case being pushed by California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing because this Owen Diaz case proved a degree of systemic, higher-level racism... especially as many other African Americans started to step up after the Diaz case.
I'm not sure if you are aware of how solid the ground I'm standing on when I'm making these accusations. I'm quite serious about how bad the situation is for Tesla.
This racism thing in Tesla is relatively new... news. People really only started to pay attention to it after Owen Diaz got so far with his case.
EDIT: The Department of Fair Employment and Housing isn't some no-name quack lawyer firm either. This is a legal arm of the state of California.
