Today, I start a trial in a race discrimination case where the employer previously testified that it was not against the company policy for white employees, including the operations manager, to say “n*gger.” When confronted with my client’s objections to the use of the word, the white managers and other employees gathered to explain to him that the N-Word was no longer offensive and is commonly used. When he would not accept that whitesplained explanation, they wrongfully fired him in retaliation.
If you are in the Akron area, please stop by the Summit County, Ohio Court of Common Pleas and watch the trial. We will be in the visiting Judge’s Courtroom on the Second Floor all week.
Race discrimination in all forms in the workplace is against the law under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Yesterday was Martin Luther King Day. Yet, we still have so far to go. It takes everyone of us to move forward as a society against race discrimination.
Here’s what I’ve written about Dr. King in the past:
- Honor Dr. King By Continuing The Fight Against Racism Everywhere
- Martin Luther King, Jr.: Remembering A Great Man’s Ideals
- Not Only Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr., But Honoring Him
- Please Remember Dr. King Every Day.
- How Did Equal Rights For African Americans Start?
Do I have a race discrimination claim that is worth suing for?
