Herb Washington, a Black franchisee, sued McDonald’s for racial discrimination, citing “racist policies and practices” that bar Black owners from the same opportunities as white franchisees, BBC News reported.

According to Washington, the corporations consigned him to “distressed, predominantly Black areas” and denied financial assistance offered to white owners.

McDonald’s responded by attributing Washington’s business challenges to “mismanagement.” However, Washington currently owns and operates 14 franchise locations and was once the highest-ranking Black owner in the US with 25 stores.
