Simon Isherwood was fired from his job for gross misconduct after he participated in a diversity training session in March 2021.

A 60-year-old British train conductor is suing his former employer, West Midlands Trains, for firing him after he questioned a “white privilege” diversity training course during a conversation with his wife.

According to Reclaim the Net, Isherwood spoke to his wife while forgetting that his microphone was still on, and some colleagues overheard him questioning the concept of white privilege. He was tattled on by his colleagues who were reportedly “angered” by his line of questioning.

Kephart called Morris’s use of force “indefensible” and the internal-affairs investigation of Boyland’s death a “clear and convincing coverup.”
