New York University paid an African worker $210,000 in a settlement suit after his supervisor called him a “monkey” and a “gorilla.”

“Do you want a banana?” NYU employee Osei Agyemang was asked by his boss at NYU’s Bobst Library. According to Agyemang, his boss taunted him with such racially inflammatory remarks for nearly two years.

The harassment stopped only after Agyemang requested to be transfered.

The boss mocked the immigrant’s accent as “gibberish,” while telling him “go back to your cage” and “go back to the jungle,” according to a September 2010 suit filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
