OT - Del Taco Gets Black Eye.

In a rare minority vs. minority discrimination lawsuit, one current and six
former black employees of Del Taco Inc. are accusing the nation's
second-largest Mexican food chain of turning a blind eye to Latino workers
repeatedly harassing them because of their race.

The civil suit alleges the Laguna Hills-based company tolerated Latino
employees verbally abusing some blacks, passing them over for promotions in
favor of Latinos and even firing blacks and replacing them with undocumented
Latino workers.
