The U. S. Secret Service, long charged with protecting presidents, vice-president and their families has been hit with a racial discrimination lawsuit. According to the employment discrimination lawsuit, black agents have been passed over for promotions and have been subjected to racial epithets both verbally and in email form.

According to the employees filing the case, supervisors regularly use racial slurs when talking about criminal suspects or black leaders of foreign countries. Last month a noose was found by one of the black employees inside the Secret Service training center. The employee who tied the noose has been placed on administrative leave.
