    Employment discrimination is a form of racism that can be addressed and correcedt if the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is amended again to address summary judgment motions that deny employment discrimination and retaliation victims a jury trial.

    The salutary purpose of summary judgment (to remove meritless cases from the courts) and the right to a jury trial can both be accomplished with a well written and defined amendment to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Amending the Civil Rights Act again would prevent one judge from having the absolute power to grant summary judgment motions that dismiss Title VII (discrimination and retaliation) cases.

    Preview my book “Screwed by Former Governor and Attorney General Eliot Spitzer” and decide if this is a true case of racism or is it imagined.
