Minn. man loses job after outcry over racist Facebook message


A man accused of sending racist private messages to a Black Lives Matter Facebook page has lost his job with food giant Archer Daniels Midland.

Brad Schultz used a racial epithet in referring to the group and told them “get out of town with your [expletive] protesting,” based on screenshots of the messages widely circulated over social media. Schultz’s message added that they should “just leave, white people don’t like you.”

At least one Facebook group posted the messages publicly last week along with a number for ADM, where Schultz was employed. The post was shared more than 1,000 times. According to screenshots of Schultz’s Facebook page, he lives in Mankato.
