A former State Farm employee—a Black woman who worked at the insurance giant for nearly 30 years—filed a lawsuit alleging that she faced discrimination and retaliation during her time at the company.
"Based on my experiences, State Farm is not a good neighbor to people who look like you and me," Carla Campbell-Jackson, the former employee who was fired in 2016, said, according to WGLT.
Campbell-Jackson, who is now the vice president of the Bloomington-Normal NAACP in Illinois, is represented by Ben Crump, the notable civil rights attorney. Crump, who represented George Floyd’s family, posted a video to Twitter excoriating the company. He said there is "an abundance of evidence" of racism at State Farm and directed at minority employees.
