Macy's issued a statement defending a white employee who was viciously attacked by a Black man who accused the employee of using the N-word. Macy's says the attack was unprovoked.

The incident happened at a Macy's store in Genesee Valley Center in Flint Township, Michigan.

The video was posted on Facebook Monday, June 15, by aspiring rapper FT Quay, who has since deleted his social media.

In the video, a white man wearing a black face mask is seen being pummeled on the floor by a Black man wearing a black wife beater and sagging pants.

The employee asked, "What are you doing that for?" as the attacker punched him repeatedly. The employee extended his arm to deflect the blows as the assailant tells him not to touch him.

"I didn't touch you... I'm sorry. I'm sorry" the man said.

In a post on Facebook, FT Quay wrote:

"This is not the whole video but Me and bro in the mall n shit and he ask this man [on the phone] did this shirt look [too] little he told him yea and kept talking on the phone then mumbled talking bout sum "no one just sum ni**er" he thought we ain't hear em because his mask was on #blackpower.[sic]"

A 51-year-old man who went on a shooting spree at Miller Coors brewing company in Milwaukee complained repeatedly to HR about racism and harassment in the workplace.

Anthony Ferrill, who is Black, was a former employee who killed five people before turning the gun on himself on Wednesday afternoon.

Ferrill made multiple complaints about racist incidents in the workplace at the Miller Coors brewery.

The allegations came to light in a Facebook post by a Milwaukee businessman who explained "the reason why our Brother snapped at Miller Coors!"

Tony Muhammad wrote: "Why isn't local news asking the why questions? Miller Brewing in Milwaukee has a long and present-day history of employment/on the job discrimination against African American males."

He said Ferrill suffered racial discrimination and harassment from white co-workers. He recently filed a civil lawsuit against Miller Coors's racist work environment, that included a noose hung on his locker.

A Delta employee who shot and killed a female co-worker near Atlanta's Hartsfield Airport killed another woman on the same night, police say.

According to WSB-TV, Raeshaun Antonie Jones fatally shot 30-year-old Alexis Nicole Lee Reed in the employee parking lot near Hartsfield-Jackson Internal Airport on Sunday night.

Reed, a below-wing employee, had just finished her shift at the airport when she was ambushed by Jones who lay in wait for her in the parking lot.

Reed attempted to flee when she spotted Jones but she was shot three times, according to WSB-TV. She was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

According to a police report obtained by PEOPLE, College Park police say Jones was a suspect in a separate homicide of a female in Clayton County the same night.

Jones fatally shot himself when police attempted to stop a car in which he was a passenger in Lovejoy, according to the AJC.

The motive for the killings is unknown but police say Jones knew both women.

"This act of violence was not a random act, but all indications are they were specific in nature," College Park Police and Clayton County Police said in a report obtained by the AJC.

Reed's mother Shaunda Shepherd told the AJC that her daughter, who grew up in California, "was a very sweet, hard-working woman of Delta for 10 years. She lived a very simple life and loved life and family."

Shelby was described as "very loving, bright, caring" on a GoFundMe page launched to help pay for funeral expenses.
