Security cam caught UPS driver’s racist rant as he declined to deliver Latino man’s Christmas package

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2021/01/06/ups-driver-milwaukee-terminated-racist-video/

When a UPS driver walked onto the front porch of a Milwaukee home last month, the man eyed the package’s recipient name: Hugo Aviles.

Moments later, without ringing the doorbell or knocking, he began writing a failed delivery attempt notice and explained why Aviles, a Latino police officer, would not get his package.

“Now you don’t get f----- nothing cause you’re a stupid m---------- who can’t read and write and speak the f------ English language,” the man said in a Dec. 17 recording of the incident, which was captured by Aviles’s security camera and posted to social media.

On Tuesday, after activists in Milwaukee held a news conference urging the company to take action, UPS announced that the driver, whom the company did not name, has been fired.

“There is no place in any community for racism, bigotry or hate,” a spokesman with the company told NBC News. “This is very serious and we promptly took action, terminating the driver’s employment.”

“We just want to make sure that UPS is serious and wants to make amends with the Latino community,” Shirley Aviles, the man’s mother told The Washington Post in an interview late Tuesday.

Video of the Dec. 17 incident shows the unidentified UPS driver approaching Aviles’s front door at around 7 p.m. After his rant, the driver pasted the failed delivery note on the door, shaking his head in apparent disapproval.
