Ick. From the AP: "Two construction workers at the new Washington Nationals ballpark are being fired after a noose was found at the site. Officials with the city and electrical subcontractor Truland Systems say the noose was found Tuesday in a break room for construction workers. The decision to fire the Truland workers came after Truland and the joint venture building the stadium met with the D.C. Sports and Entertainment Commission. Truland spokesman John Jordan said that the company is deeply appalled." The Post has more details on the incident, the investigation, and an earlier incident between a Truland worker and African-American electricians. And here's the Examiner's piece.
Council member Kwame Brown sent out a statement late Thursday night calling himself "outraged": "I will fight tooth and nail to discover the truth of what happened. I will also do what's in my power to ensure that companies with a proven history of discriminatory practices never get contracts or do business with the District of Columbia. Hate crimes will not be tolerated." The release goes on to say that Brown "is also considering a measure that would require the District to take into account the proven discriminatory history of a company and its employees when awarding city contracts" and will hold an oversight hearing on the incident next week.
UPDATE: Here's the joint statement from the DCSEC and Clark/Hunt/Smoot.
UPDATE II: Kwame Brown's roundtable on the incident has been scheduled for Jan. 30 at 1 pm.
