A Los Angeles hospital is investigating a racist display that appeared to be directed at African-American employees in the IT department.

Kaiser Hospital Riverside employee Xavier Fields said when he arrived for work he witnessed a doll in black face hanging from a rope. The doll also had a racial slur written on its chest. What was more alarming to Fields was that it was in a restricted area in the hospital where only employees have access. Employees gave the doll to a manager, which prompted the hospital to launch an investigation. No police report was filed.
