Black workers sue General Mills, alleging discrimination at Georgia plant

The employees allege a hostile culture run by white "Good Ole Boys" at the cereal factory

For 16 years, a wall at a General Mills cereal factory in Georgia bore a mural that looked like Confederate monument Stone Mountain.

On the 12-foot-tall painting were three General Mills cereal mascots portraying Confederate generals, including Buzz the Bee as Stonewall Jackson.

Black workers at the plant in Covington, outside of Atlanta, say that's one of many examples of racism and discrimination at a plant run by "Good Ole Boys," according to a lawsuit filed last weekend by eight current and former employees.
