This DOES look like backlash-bait...and, since this deals with the Gulf Coast, it gets backlash bonus-points for potentially stirring up shit between Native Americans and African Americans(and, with the labor camp allegations at the base of the story, allegations that are horrific if true but also solely the responsibility of the subsidiary if true. also intended to drive a wedge between Alaska Natives and Filipinos-Alaska has a large Filipino immigrant community going back to the Klondike Gold Rush era and the creation of the fish canneries in the early 20th Century, and those two communities have historically been in tension with each other, although those tensions have eased a lot in recent years).
