Black man accuses Detroit bank of discrimination for not taking checks

A Detroit man is seeking legal action against a local bank that he says discriminated against him when he recently attempted to cash $99,000 in checks from a previous racial discrimination lawsuit. Sauntore Thomas said he felt humiliated when staff at a TCF Bank in Livonia became suspicious and summoned police.’They did not want to assist me because I was African American,’ Thomas said.

Yeah everything must be racially charged. It wasn't at all the fact that your bank account would have been loaded overnight after having no money. I had to deal with similar stuff when I cashed the money I got from my wedding, and I'm white.

When you get a check over a certain amount they have to report it and do extra checking to make sure everything is ok.

Priming, he expects to be treated poorly so assumes racism. Hanlon's razor suggests that the people at the bank were not trained properly. He will most likely win a new lawsuit.
