This book is a chilling account of the successful multi-million class-action racial discrimination
suit brought against the Nucor Steel Corporation. Roane discusses the company’s unfair hiring
practices, co-workers using racial slurs such as “Nigger and Baloney Lip,” and the Neanderthal-
like behavior of wearing the confederate flags to work. Roane tells of the stress, anger, fear,
and ultimately the will it took for him to become the lead plaintiff in the case. This captivating
story proves that Jim Crow is not dead. He’s very much alive and well. Only now he’s wearing a
three-piece suit with wing tip shoes.
