Palestinian-American called "camel jockey" at GAP in Gallatin, TN
Hakam Hejazi, a truck driver from Palestine, was called a camel jockey be the management of J.B. Hunt Transport at the GAP distribution center in Gallatin, TN.
J.B. Hunt management would routinely harrass him and call him racial slurs, said that his nargile was a crack pipe, and eventually fired him.
He was called racial slurs on GAP property, but GAP obviously finds J.B. Hunt's racism acceptable since they renewed J.B. Hunt's contract. GAP is Jewish owned. Hakam Hejazi, the victim, is Palestinian.
Even if GAP thinks it's acceptable for a Palestinian to be called racial slurs, I think we should call them and tell them what WE think.
