DETROIT (AP) - The Michigan Civil Rights Commission has awarded $450,000 to a former suburban Detroit bus system employee of Iraqi descent who claimed a co-worker made ethnic slurs against him.

The Detroit Free Press reports (http://on.freep.com/LWMN4v ) Saturday the commission also ordered the Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation to stop discriminating against employees. The award follows the commission's order in October finding the bus system was liable in the case of Mazyn Barash.

The now 55-year-old Barash, who left SMART in 2004, said Friday he's relieved but upset it took so long. He says threats and slurs started after 2001's terrorist attacks and intensified near the start of the Iraq war in 2003.

The bus system's attorneys strongly contested the former bus mechanic's complaints. The system has 30 days to appeal.

You deserved it for the following reasons:

1) You live in Detroit

2) You work for the Detroit city government

3) You most likely belong to a union (a Detroit union at that)

Stupid camel jockey. Im more surprised at how little he received but it is Detroit. Any more and the entire bus company would likely have to be shut down.

Most iraqi migrants live in either michigan or in a whale's vagina.

Detroit has a very high muslim population but unless caught on tape how does one prove these slurs? Also how do you put a price on said slurs? This is our society today and we have let it get this way. So shooter has a point dmfd

Yes, they do. They have been constitutionally mandated to make the state a happy zone since 1963.
