Laughing While Black Lawsuit Seeks $11 Million in Damages

A group of mostly African American book club members kicked off a Napa valley wine train in August is filing suit for $11 million in damages. The plaintiffs say they were victims of racial discrimination, in effect, kicked off the train for “laughing while black.” They want the company to conduct sensitivity and diversity training to prevent similar incidents in the future. Christopher Martinez reports from San Francisco.
