Public Freakout | White Man Calls Man N-Word Repeatedly In Work Van. A white Ohio contractor issued an apology on Wednesday, just one day after he was captured on video repeatedly calling a black man the n-word after he thought the man cut him off while driving. Jeffrey Whitman, the owner of Uriah’s Heating and Cooling in central Ohio, issued an apology obtained by a local ABC affiliate after a video of him went viral showing the white business owner confronting Charles Lovett, who is black, for allegedly cutting him while on the road. In the video, which has picked up significant traction on social media in the past two days, Lovett said Whitman followed him to his house over a disagreement about who had the right of way in a lane.
