How to prove racial discrimination during interviews?
How do you prove you are being discriminated after an interview? You know in your guts during the interview that you are being discriminated, .'cos of the colour of your skin (asian), just the way they talked or looked at you. And you know very well that you wouldn't get that job; and it's all about racism, not being a white. But when you approached a lawyer, he will ask you whether you are really certain. How do you proved it?

Well, the whole racism thing is such a touchy subject that I wouldn't play that card unless I was 98% certain that was the reason I did not get a job. Is it possible that you just weren't qualified or that someone else was a better fit and they just happened to be White? Don't get me wrong, i'm not trying to disprove... More

The interviewer knows in the guts that you are incompetant and the Lawyer was sure of it too.You want freebies becuse you are a person of colour and not one of "Delivery" I suspect.
