(MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS) — A Muslim employee of Sacramento County alleges that he has suffered religious and racial discrimination since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

That’s the same year Abdur-Rahim Wasi, who is African American, started work at the Human Assistance Department.

In a lawsuit filed in Superior Court last year, Wasi says co-workers have called him a host of names associated with the terrorist attacks – “Osama Bin Laden,” “Taliban” and “Al-Qaida.”
