Business fires white woman who molested black man and his children outside his home

A California woman who racially profiled a black filmmaker and his two children outside their home was fired from her employer days after the story went viral. The healthcare company released a statement to the public distancing itself from its former employee.

Lisa Smith, who went viral for asking an African American man why he was in the condominium, has been fired from her job as chief executive in Change Healthcare’s anesthesia department.

In a statement emailed to Atlanta Black Star by Katherine Woktekki, vice president of marketing and external communications, the organization made it clear that its core values ​​are the polar opposite of those portrayed by Smith in the video.

“We are aware of a video recently posted on social media involving one of our former employees,” the statement said. “One of our core values ​​at Change Healthcare is ‘Include All’. Consistent with our core values ​​and policies, we value diversity, promote inclusion and strive to maintain a workplace free from harassment and discrimination. We do not share specific information about current or former employees. However, that person is no longer with Change Healthcare.”

The video referenced in the company statement was recorded by Joshua O. Miller, a film producer, on Sunday, July 10, after returning from playing Pokémon Go with his children (13 and 5). When the family returned home from the park, Smith met him in front of his townhouse in a gated complex in the Victoria Park neighborhood of Los Angeles and asked him, “What are you doing out here right now?”

Little did Smith know that Miller lived in the house she was protecting.

He understood the power of social media and released the video that same evening. Within hours, followers started sharing the video and it went viral.

That night, Miller and his brother Isaac were able to locate where the woman worked and tagged her online to detail the altercation with his followers.

By the next day, Smith had changed all of her social media, including Facebook and Twitter, after the video went viral and people began identifying her as the woman in the footage.

On Tuesday, Miller tweeted that he had spoken to Change Healthcare about Smith’s profiling and harassment.

“I just got off the phone @Change_HC actually they hung up on us. They didn’t want the call to be recorded. I didn’t apologize,” he tweeted. “I was just wondering what led up to this!!!! When all this led to Lisa Smith’s racism. They never intended to do anything. #racialprofiling

His brother, who was also on the phone, took to Twitter to share his insights from the Change Health Care conversation, writing that he was “appalled”.

“I am appalled that this company is even involved in the healthcare industry, let alone calling itself Change Healthcare. That was the worst professional call I’ve ever heard. It felt like talking to a brick,” he wrote.

On Thursday, July 14, the company released the same statement shared with Atlanta Black Star.

Isaac tweeted a thank you with a retweet from Change Healthcare: “To everyone who helped hold @Change_HCand their former employees responsible, thank you! Thank you for standing up for decency and what is right and not accepting the “that’s the way it is” excuse in this case.” Business fires white woman who molested black man and his children outside his home
