Trust me, I FEEL for you! If a manager (or a company) wants to make your life miserable, they WILL do it! I am now 55, and can't seem to find ANY desktop support job anywhere. So I am facing AGE discrimination, but they get away with it!!!!!!!!!! My old manager even got away with saying to my face one day " I HATE old timers, they are so hard to get rid of". But she found a way - when they outsourced my entire desktop department (40 of us), she BLACK LISTED any of us who she did not like, and my life was ruined.

2) contact a labor lawyer, especially one who might SPECIALIZE is race discrimination! Then let him tell you what to do, most likely #1 above for sure!
3) sort of count your belssings though - me being white, I DON'T HAVE ANYONE on my side these days!!!!!!! Even illegals have more rights than I DO!
4) also CHILL OUT! Don't get all mad and talk back. Oh they just love that, see how they suspended you? Instead, you should have just took it and grinned, then imediately gone to HR and file harrassment charges against that person. They HAVE to take things like that seriously these days!!!! You could have had HIM fired on the spot.
But now, most importantly, HIRE A LABOR LAWYER! And DO NOT post this everywhere!!!!!!!!!!! Because now a days, companies are SMARTER than you think! They SEARCH on the Internet and look for your comments, and use those against you. If you have pasted this on Twitter or Facebook, they most likely have that on file now. So CONTACT that LAWYER ASAP!!
