A black manager at a Long Island T.G.I. Friday’s alleges that a racist boss warned him in 2008 not to vote for Barack Obama — and fired him after he did.
In a federal discrimination lawsuit, Michael Verzillo says regional manager Tanya Edwards, who is white, asked him in September 2008 whom he’d for.
When he replied that he might vote for Obama, Edwards, 50, said the Bible predicted “a black Muslim will take power and destroy the world,” said Verzillo, 39, who filed the suit against Edwards and the national eatery chain last week.
“She actually called me up on Election Day and said, ‘Are you going to vote?’ I said yes and she asked who I was voting for,’’ he said.
