‘Reverse racism’ or ‘Racism’—Victim says it’s all the same

by on
in Discrimination and Harassment,Human Resources

Mark Pasternak, of Buffalo, a former youth aide for the Office of Child and Family Services, won a $150,000 verdict for discrimination he suffered nearly a decade ago.

Co-workers, several of them black, corroborated Pasternak’s testimony that his boss, Tommy Baines, orally abused him during his three years with the agency, calling him “cracker” and “stupid white boy.” Following a state investigation in 1998, Baines was fined $2,000 but kept his job.

Pasternak said, “They called it reverse racism, but for me, I thought all along it was just plain racism.”

Final note: Cases involving reverse discrimination seem to be on the rise. Train supervisors and managers: Targeting anyone (of any race) because of race is illegal.
