Back in 2018, Lisa Ellis commented about a Bell Acres councilman who drove through a crowd of Antwon Rose protesters.

Ellis posted, “Total BS. Too bad he didn’t have a bus to plow thru.”

BNY Mellon fired Ellis after that.

Ellis, who is white, then sued, claiming discrimination due to her race.

A judge ruled Ellis presented no evidence that her firing was based on race.

A federal appeals court just upheld that ruling.
