Wish we could help sink our overloaded teeth into this one. We have three cases similar to yours in work and another pending already.
Just try to get help with 42 USC 1986, 1985, 1983, and/or 1981 filings and litigation. get very familiar with both state and federal employment discrimination law, and don't forget to reserve your right, through notice to the defendant, to seek exemplary and punitive damages.
Most locations have several people that study '42' actions and work together in a mutual assistance fashion.
Actually, what you said in your posting pretty much summarizes your case, but you need to lay in background, suporting facts, points and authorities. Be prepared for a standard, boilerplate, 12(b)(6) motion to dismiss. These are S.O.P. in federal courts. If one is not submitted, your (ex) employer has a flaky lawyer.
Don't get excited about making a long brief. We've been told by an old-timer judge that "The problem with most briefs is that they are not." Do be comprehensive, yet concise. ALWAYS show the court the most extreme courtesy - let the court be your friend.
And may the God of the Universe be with you and prosper your liberty and property interests.
