The district court1 granted summary judgment to Drivers, and Abraham appeals. Upon careful de novo review, we conclude that a jury would be unable to find, based on the evidence in the summary judgment record, that Drivers’ reasons for terminating Abraham were a pretext for national-origin discrimination. Accordingly, we affirm. See 8th Cir. R. 47B. ______________________________ 1 The Honorable John M.
