A Muslim couple says they were subjected to racist taunts by a black Tim Hortons employee in Ypsilanti. They say the employee told them to “go back to their country."
The Council on American-Islamic Relations-Michigan (CAIR-MI) is working with the couple. It's filing a civil rights complaint to the Michigan's Department of Civil Rights, against the company.
"People are being judged based on the color of their skin, or whether or not they are wearing religious clothing or if they have an accent on their, their American-ness," said Amy Doukorue, the couple's attorney.
