In the modern workplace, supervisors and coworkers rarely announce discriminatory motives or combine an adverse employment action with a racially-charged comment. Race discrimination is more typically evidenced by conduct and decisions, where an employee is treated differently than his or her coworkers.
Race discrimination can take form in several ways: where the employer selects a less-qualified candidate for a position to which you have applied; where your supervisor issues disciplinary action against you but not a coworker, even though your coworker committed the same infraction; or, in rarer cases, where your supervisor reccommends that you be transferred or terminated after making racially-charged comments or using stereotypes about individuals of your race.
