SOUTH FULTON, Georgia (CBS46) – An unprovoked racial attack was caught on camera. A man asking for AT&T directed a racial slur on the teenage son of a South Fulton family.
The man was going door-to-door luring customers on the Concord Loop in South Fulton.
A 16-year-old named Montrell Godley replied through the ring camera and said he needed to talk to his dad first. But that’s when the man walked away and said, “Thank you for being a [racial slur]. “
The man seems to use the derogatory term a second time as he heads towards the driveway.
The family is shocked and traumatized by what they saw on the camera.
“I was shocked. Because this is the first time I have to face it. I didn’t expect it, and I was at a loss for words,” said Montrell Godley. “This is just something no African American should accept.”
Montrell’s father is as frustrated as his son.
“That stuff is unacceptable. It is insulting. It is painful. It is painful. And it can lead to long-lasting harmful scars, ”said Aaron Godley.
He wants action, immediately.
“I don’t think someone who has that kind of hatred in their heart should enter people’s communities and homes,” said Aaron Godley. “Someone needs to sit down and talk to him. I would also be willing to talk to him and explain the damage you have caused by choosing the words you used ”.
After CBS46 News contacted AT&T on Thursday evening, an official said they had severed the relationship with the supplier.
AT&T released a statement saying:
“This salesperson’s behavior is vile and offensive and goes against everything we stand for as a company. We have zero tolerance for what happened today and the relationship with this supplier has been severed. “
