Get your other performance evaluations and save it. Show your lawyer your previous evaluations (dates included), the date you talked to HR, and under performance evaluation. I think you should have a good case of previously you were a high performer.

Whether real or perceived, if you’re feeling this way you should consider leaving. If you have documentation that shows you’re a top performer, take it with you as others have suggested. You won’t change the behavior and I’d recommend finding a new role.

What makes you think you are being targeted due to your ethnicity? Are there other people at work with your ethnicity? How are they treated? How are others that are not your ethnicity treated? Answering those questions will help you determine whether ethnic discrimination is at play. Raising your concern and then the threatened PIP is arguably retaliation. What is the PIP for?
