Asian American police officers say they were ‘routinely’ subjected to slurs, stereotypes

Lawsuit claims San Gabriel police maintained a “racially hostile” work environment.

From the San Gabriel Valley Tribune: A group of current and former Asian American officers of the San Gabriel Police Department claim they were routinely harassed and discriminated against — both by other officers using slurs and stereotypes and by the department’s leadership, who they say passed them up for promotion after complaining about the alleged abuses, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday.

The lawsuit claims San Gabriel police maintained a “racially hostile” work environment in which they were demeaned “on a nearly daily basis,” including other officers using “mock Asian accents” when speaking to them, as well as comments on their physical appearance and stereotypes about Asian culture.
