Job elimination or discrimination

I've been told that my position is being eliminated (I'm the only black female office manager) since the 401(k) is being outsourced and we recently changed brokers (mind you this in not the first time). I have other duties, HR, collections, billing, e-filing taxes, facilities. The partners said they are having the existing staff take over these duties. They just placed an ad to hire a new bookkeeper and just hired a new admin person. I believe I'm being discriminated against because of my race as I am the only Black in my company other than a male tax manager. I also have other reasons to believe this move is based on prejudice. - Is there a law that prevents me from suing my employment on the basis of job elimination. We have 60 employees and the firm is starting a new practice, yet my position is the only one eliminated.

Bo, a job elimination is just another reason for termination. And, like any other rationale, it can be true or a cover-up. That is, discriminattion can still be all or part of the reason for the termination.
What I would like to know is what other evidence exists that this is done because of your race. If there is enough, I would be interested.
