In Los Angeles, Ventura and San Diego County, there are many cases of Racial Discrimination. In fact, recent studies have shown that racial discrimination is on the rise in many places of work. Could it be at yours? There are many signs that you should be looking for, when conducting your own investigation on the matter. Let's take a look:

  1. Hostility: In many situations, employers that unfortunately show racial prejudices, tend to be hostile towards their employees. This can be seen in many instances. What if you're a black male that is always called "bro," or a Muslim female that is criticized for wearing a hijab. Perhaps you are a Chinese immigrant that is mocked for their accent. These type of reactions from employers are unacceptable and should not be tolerated.
  2. Ignored and overlooked: Unfortunately, there are many instances when white counterparts are promoted, leaving black employees behind. Criticism of employees is trending to be a regular occurrence, especially during time modern day time. It is important that employers must be very careful of ensuring criticism is fair to all, not just to a select group of individuals, especially based on their race. At times, certain criticism is gone too far from managers - and this is extremely unacceptable.
  3. Stereotyping: This occurs more often than not, when employers treat certain groups of people based on misconceptions and false generalizations. What ends up happening is individuals get lumped into one group and completely ignored as an individual in their own right. The common phrase, "Well that's how I'm used to your people doing things," is echoed in many offices from employers. This is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
