White Supremacists in Wells Fargo?

The NY Times has a piece on a lawsuit brought by the city of Baltimore against Wells Fargo. Of particular interest to me is the language that was allegedly used in the company "servicing" blacks:

“They referred to subprime loans made in minority communities as ghetto loans and minority customers as ‘those people have bad credit’, ‘those people don’t pay their bills’ and ‘mud people,’ ” Mr. Paschal said in his affidavit.

Now the only place that I read or hear the phrase "mud people" used in among White Supremacist organizations. I've known for a long while now that many white supremacists are gainfully employed in various companies and instead of the stereotypical skinhead, black jacket, tatted up persona popularized by sensationalist news media, they are well or "average" dressed men and women who could be your cubicle-mate.

So I'm wondering whether there will be any digging into the backgrounds of these individuals using such coded language
