There are several ways that you might feel that you were discriminated against besides hiring, firing, or performance reviews. For example:
Imagine that you’re working for a company, and there are signs above the bathroom entrance that say “Whites Only.” Discrimination may not be that explicit today but what if your supervisor makes comments about the light complexion of your skin, refers to you as “Light Bright,” and gives you a poor performance review because she says that that she’s “never trusted light-skinned women?” What if you find noose drawings at your cubicle or taped to your locker? What if no Black staff can work in front of the counter or have ever been promoted? All of these scenarios may be considered employment discrimination based on race or color.
