The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced January 2 that Lockheed Martin agreed to pay $2.5 million to end a suit brought by Charles Daniels, a black avionics electrician who says he was harassed and threatened when he worked at the company from 1999 to 2001. The size of the settlement wasn't the remarkable part of consent decree. What stands out is the EEOC's high-profile rebuke of Lockheed Martin and the fact that it mandated a personnel decision.

The agency wants companies to respond to racism within their own walls.
