After meeting with Texaco’s chairman yesterday, Reverend Jesse Jackson called for a boycott to force Texaco to settle a claim on behalf of 1400 black workers who say that Texaco has systematically discriminated against them. A former employee released tapes, transcripts of recorded conversations in which Texaco executives had used words such as "nigger" or "jelly bean" referring to the black workers. Jesse Jackson’s call for the boycott is broadcasted in this segment of the program.
