I am a black female. I was terminated (due to alleged financial constraints) 2 months after my newly assigned supervisor (white female) sent another employee (white female) a text stating, "the Flying Monkey will have her wings clipped soon". Was made aware of the text approximately 1 month following my termination. Also found out a white male, with similar credentials was hired, at same or more salary, to backfill my position, 2 weeks following my termination. Filed an EEOC complaint--and investigation has been active/on-going for past 14 months. Anticipate I will eventually receive a "right to sue letter". During the 4 yrs of employment, I consistently received outstanding evaluations, annual bonuses, promotions, and salary increases (all documented) based on exemplary performance.
