Lawsuit: SF Sheriff’s Dept. Ordered Black Women To Be Silent After They Complained Of Racial Discrimination
SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) – A lawsuit filed by two Black women who work for the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department accuses their employer ordering them to be silent while at work in retaliation for claims of racial discrimination.
“I was not to talk to anyone in our office,” said Kim Lee, a 23-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Department. “‘Come to work, do your job, and just leave,’” she said she was told by her supervisor.
