DANVILLE, Va. (WSET/CNN) — A black delivery driver for Lowe’s says he was told he could not make a delivery because of his race. The home improvement chain has since responded, and now a Lowe’s store manager is out of a job.

Marcus Bradley says last Monday was an ordinary day on the job as a delivery driver for Lowe’s.

“Then I got a phone call on the phone telling me to bring the delivery back, saying that I couldn’t do the delivery,” he said.

He says what he was told next shocked him.

“I asked him why I couldn’t do it and he said because you’re black and they don’t want you at the house,” Bradley says.

Bradley says he was told the customer specifically asked Lowe’s not to send a black delivery person.
