Do you want to keep working there? If no, get yourself fired and then hire a lawyer and say you were fired because you were white. Show them your review with the low rating for the color of your skin.

If you do want to keep working there, don't do anything. You can mention it to your boss but be prepared that he/she may not like that and may fire you or make your job worse.

OP said he was rated low and only verbally told it was because they are white. Hard to prove that happened.

Oh I must have missed that in his post. Yeah that would be impossible to prove in court.

No, it's not that hard prove. He said he got a low rating on his performance review which was in writing. He was told verbally that it was because he was white. If an attorney took the case he is going to have a lot of tools at his disposal to show that it is more likely than not that OP's side of the story is true. Remember, you start at he said/she said 50/50. Assuming OP's story is true, without a massive cover-up depositions, e-discovery, witness interviews, etc. should easily be enough to push that to 51%; and with a massive cover-up, all the missing documentation would be persuasive. It would likely settle long before going to trial anyway. OP needs to talk to a civil rights or employment lawyer.
