    You are very vague about the issues you are facing at your workplace so it is impossible to fully answer you question. I would recommend that you contact an attorney experienced in employment discrimination. If you do not know one, go to www.nela.org and search for one in your area.

    NELA is a nationwide association of employment discrimination attorneys and you should be able to find one in Newburgh. Most offer a free initial consultation so you have nothing to lose by contacting one to get good advice.

    Good luck,

Of course, as in any other aspect of life, if you think that unlawful conduct is occurring, you should consult with an attorney. There is never any reason not to do that.

    But bear in mind that HR is not there as a sounding board for the majority views of the workforce. It is there as a resource for the employer, to serve the interests of management. "Racism issues" covers a lot of territory, and the distinctions between lawful and unlawful conduct are most always in the details.
