Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and FEHA both prohibit race discrimination in all aspects of employment relationships.

Race discrimination involves treating an applicant or employee unfavorably because he or she is of a certain race or because of personal characteristics that might be associated with a particular race (such as hair texture). Discrimination on the basis of color is also prohibited by state and federal law and involves treating someone unfavorably because of skin color/complexion.
