Tesla is a 'hotbed for racist behavior,' class-action lawsuit claims

Vaughn's legal action is the third lawsuit filed this year by black workers alleging racial slurs were used against them and that the company ignored their complaints. It took a while though - 11 years before the company delivered the first of its affordable Model 3s to customers. He complained to Tesla's human resources department and was fired in October for "not having a positive attitude".

The factory houses three product lines: the Model S battery-sedan, the Model X battery-SUV, and the new Model 3.

"Although Tesla stands out as a groundbreaking company at the forefront of the electric car revolution, its standard operating procedure at the Tesla factory is pre-Civil Rights era race discrimination", the employee said in the complaint, filed yesterday.

Regardless, one of the reasons why Musk is such a fascinating, if not controversial, character is precisely because he's prone to making tantalizing statements that only serve to heighten our collective interest in the company's plans, no matter how far from reality those statements may seem at the surface.
