GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) -- A black man who helped build the TransCanada Keystone oil pipeline that passes through eastern North Dakota is suing his former employer in federal court, alleging that he faced racial discrimination at a job site at Mekinock.

Cook County, Ill., resident Charles Adams says he was subjected to racist remarks and jokes and had a noose thrown at him when he worked for Henkels & McCoy Inc. in the summer of 2008 in northeastern North Dakota.
