Latina NY Post Editor Alleges Racism, Sexism

El Tiempo Latino, Annie Correa Posted: Feb 20, 2010

NEW YORK Sandra Guzmn, the only Hispanic editor at the New York Post when she was fired last September, has sued the newspaper because of the racism and sexism that allegedly dominated the Post pages and offices, El Tiempo Latino reports.

Guzmn sued the newspaper after she was fired. She denounced the publication of a cartoon that compared President Barack Obama to a monkey. She also said that discrimination has been part of the newspaper policy for years.

Guzmn, a Puerto Rican, describes in her law suit several sexual harassment and racisms episodes from 2003, when she started to work at the Post.

Before being fired, she allegedly complained to the Post management but got no results. She also asked superiors to apologize for having published the Obama cartoon. Guzmn said her demands made her work very difficult and that her bosses prohibited her from covering Sonia Sotomayor's appointment to the Supreme Court.
