FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Indiana's NewsCenter has confirmed a settlement has been reached between the Fort Wayne Metropolitan Human Relations Commission and the owner of a south side laundry mat that riled members of the Burmese community.
Some of the city's 5,000 Burmese protested outside the Allen County Courthouse last month, after employees of the Ricker's Laundry on South Calhoun posted a "no Burmese allowed" sign.
The laundry's workers will be given mandatory diversity training and a donation will be made to the Burmese Advocacy Center to settle the commission's civil rights investigation.
We reported earlier the "no Burmese allowed" sign was posted when Burmese patrons of the laundry spat beetle nut juice inside the business.
