            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Jeffrey A. Neary, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Bower, C.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, C.J.  (10 pages)

            Oliver Fenceroy appeals the district court’s granting of summary judgment in favor of defendants Gelita USA, Inc., Tom Haire, and Jeff Tolsma to dismiss his claims of racial harassment, racial discrimination, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.  OPINION HOLDS: We find Fenceroy did not show Gelita had the requisite knowledge to support the harassment claims, did not establish an adverse employment action for his discrimination claim, and the evidence did not support a finding of severe emotional distress.  We affirm.
